Re: June contest questions

Up at Lake Superior two years ago I watched a guy work 274 miles with a barefor transverter and a 20 dB horn on 10 GHz. Always worth a try. Sorry to hear you're locked up this weekend, but you'll have some fun. Good luck Bob.
Things changed and I can no longer leave home this weekend (on call, stuff at work not behaving, etc). I will do what I can from DM65uv which is probably going to be limited to 2 and 6 meter bands.
At some point in the near future I want to scout out Clara Peak in DM66va. Descriptions online suggest it's an easy drive until the last 1/4 mile. We'll see!
Catch you guys this weekend.
I'd like to participate in the contest this weekend to do an equipment shakedown. I hear there are some locations that I can drive to and setup and make a few Qs, but really have no idea about where the preferred locations are or what's even close to me (I'm in Los Alamos).
The plan is to drag out the 6 meter hexbeam (folds up), small 2 meter beam (Arrow, handheld but probably will strap it down to a pole), 23cm (cheap yagi with 25W DEMI transverter), and 10GHz dish (DEMI transverter right into the feed, 10mW I think). I'd appreciate any recommendations that are not crazy far from home on where to setup.
