Mike --

I think you should reconsider your operating plan.

In the current sunspot cycle, operating conditions are pretty good on
the higher bands.

I used to take makeshift dipoles to the Northern Minnesota fishing
camps.  Fed them with RG-58.  I had lots of great contacts in the early
70's on 15M.  20m should be real  hot these days.

If I were in your spot I would investigate 2m handhelds.  From the
Galcier Peak area at 9000 feet, you should have several good shots into
the Seattle area.  If worse cames to worse for emergency work you could
always walk around the mountain.  Check with the local amateur clubs for
repeater availability.
