Liberty Mine – Activation – US-CO-ME-LBRTY

How D:

I finally got all my ducks in a row and made my first MOTA activation.  It was a chance to try out my first portable activation as well.  It taught me a lot about what to take, what not to take and what I still need.

I picked the Liberty Mine because it was easy to get to, a good place to setup and not far from home.  If I had forgotten anything, it was best not to travel too far.  So I packed up the ATV, packed a case with with an ICom IC-718, Bioenno Power 9ah LiFePO4, RIGrunner 4004 power distribution, Buddipole Antenna and a clamp on shade umbrella.

A few images are posted here and I have a short YouTube video from the activation.  MOTA Activation US-CO-ME-LBRTY

The Liberty Mine produced both Uranium and Vanadium.  I have not been able to find any records on when it was opened or closed.  I do know the Colorado DNR had a clean up operation there and it is documented on their site.

Join me in some MOTAs.  Be safe and 73.
