Hilltopping in Nebraska is about the same everywhere, since there are so few hills. However, there are valleys for the rivers so our activity might better named "valley topping." My intention was to visit the Springview Cemetary about five miles further north but the overnight rains made these roads very slippery.

I used this convenient pull-off north of Springview, NE, in June 2018. It worked great and made many meteor scatter and FT8 contacts. There were no houses or power lines nearby and background noise was non-existent.

There is very little traffic, but anyone that passed did stop to chat and see what I'm doing, including a reporter from the Springview Herald local paper.
