The club held another SOTA and POTA event on Big Hill on September 21, 2019.  The weather was excellent and the radio conditions wern't too bad either.  

A few of the attendes got a tour of the fire lookout which provided for a great view.

We were lucky with the weather, if we waited another week we would have needed a jacket.
