    Episode 401 - Bruce Prior - N7RRBruce Prior, N7RR, loves to operate SOTA in Washington States great outdoors where he has cataloged for SOTA all of the available mountain peaks in the state. I had the great pleasure of
    spending an afternoon last week with Bruce in Washington, activating Mt.
    Walker in Washingtons Olympic Mountain range. My first SOTA activation
    where I learned the basics of SOTA activation. This was a great
    opportunity to get to know my guest in this weeks QSO Today.Show
