Bob KL3BD is on Mt McKinley. If he can make it to the top, it will be in
the next day or two. He was pinned down by bad WX and high winds with
lots of snow for a week, but is now climbing the West Buttress at about
14472 feet, hoping to make it to 17000 feet or so today. The temperature
is about 10F / -12C with no wind and about 1/4 mile visibility in fog.


Unfortunately, the battery he needs for HF is dead, but he is able to
use his VX8R for voice and APRS. If you connect to IRLP reflector
9006 you may able to chat with him.
