Very nice.

You should photo shop your 100 out, put the camel in it's place with the strap attached :)

Yes, camels are useful.
When putting a new repeater on top of Mt St Catherine in the Sinai, around 1995, we planned for the use of helicopter. Then one of the local techs came up with the idea....
So, instead of a 10,000 $ heli-lift, it was a 600 $ camel trip.
Mast sections on one, repeater station on another, and then the solar power station. Backpacks on and start walking. Great trip if you start early, like 4 am.
And yes, LC-80 up to the foot. The steps & paths were too steep and narrow though.

Bon week-end

Now that sounds like a fun days work :) What was the repeater for? Can't think of any ham clubs that would spend that on a repeater :mrgreen:

Nice pic Jon, is that the same place as your pic of the 100 doing the same sort of thing but in the dry?

Yes, it is dry unless there's been quite a lot of rain and then you wonder why it's called the water fall :)

That was for the UN Observer Group Egypt, monitoring the Israel-Egypt peace treaty agreed at Camp David in -78.
Now, I must say that I didn't go on this trip, had to stay in the HQ, but the guys who went had a great time.
