Jan VHF contest roving plan


James C
 

Hi John,

I'll be looking for you from 66,84,85 ( Only a few left in NM thanks to you!)
I understand this is for the contest but I'll be doing my best to work you in those grids.
Are you running your standard setup? Moxon/100w?
CM on .260?

If we can't get it done would you be open to accepting an M2 3elSS antenna as a donation to your roving efforts?

I appreciate all the new grids and would love to get this antenna in your hands. 

Thank you, Best of luck and stay safe! 73 .-James K7KQA DN06

Here's what I'm thinking:

Saturday

1900Z DM76xv (Truchas Overlook)
2200Z DM66wa

Sunday

1500Z DM74xv
1900Z DM84at
2300Z DM85fa

I am not particularly attached to this plan, so if someone else wants to take a crack at any of these (especially DM76 and DM66) just let me know and I'll adjust.

Times are all approximate and depend on activity, need for sleep, my judgement of evening Es probability, etc.  I believe I'll have cell service everywhere except DM84, so I'll be on NMVHF Slack chat to start but probably move to VHF-Chat Slack rover-raregrid when it's slow.

I'll have the usual setup with 6/2/432, all modes.

73,
