KK6MC/r in January VHF Contest
Here is my preliminary itinerary for the January VHF contest. As has become my tradition, I am going south and west for the January contest. I have had enough of scraping 6 inches of snow off the rover in the morning or mucking about in slush to get ready. As a result of this QSOes may be difficult with many of you from northern and central NM from some of the stops.
I also have rearranged things a bit and am starting in El Paso and working my way over to AZ so that I can be on in AZ Sunday morning for the SOTA activity.
I will have all bands 50MHz to 1296MHz. I will have APRS through cell coverage, look for KK6MC-6 on APRS.fi. You can text (preferred) or call (505) 228-5491 to contact me. Good luck to all!
