Prior to this activation the site had only been activated 4 times.  After we arrived we could see why. A lot of challenging obstacles.  I had my vertical but could not find my spike mount so Brandon improvised one using one end of the Endfed of the antenna using his wagon and the vertical I had.  

The video shows a better view of how we set up the antenna.
