N5SJ/M IN NM QSO PARTY
N5SJ/M itinerary - NM QSO Party
Here is our itinerary for the NM QSO Party Saturday. Mike N5SJ will operate while Ken, KG5IDN will drive the Cool Bus. If propagation is good, you should be able to find me pretty much anytime around the suggested frequencies. I will also have APRS so you can track our progress.
This will be a kind of a test for the new antennas. Using the Reverse Beacon Network we compared the verticals to a 40 meter dipole up 35' and were pretty close, amazing ourselves. We will see what the real world has to say about that.
Please do not text or call during the contest about arranging QSOes or frequencies as that is forbidden in the rules. There is a suggestion in the rules about NM stations going to the suggested operating frequencies at the top of the hour to work other NM stations, and I will try to do that.
We will operate mainly 40M CW and SSB and 20M CW and SSB.
It easy for us to get behind or ahead of schedule, so don’t hold me to this exact schedule, but we will try as best as we can.
