Amateur Radio from 2900ft. on Mount Diablo | 146.520MHz FM Simplex

Over the past weekend I took a solo, socially-distanced road trip to Mount Diablo to try out my Amateur Radio station. The results far exceeded my expectations and I ended up making more than 25 contacts total.

I decided to put together a video about my adventure. It turned out to be a nice day and a good way to get out of the house. The Amateur Radio Community is incredibly friendly which made for many smiles and fun contacts.


I decided to QSL as many of these contacts as possible. I hope to get some interest cards back from the various operators that I was able to reach.

Thanks for reading and I hope you enjoyed the video :]
