This weekend I’ll be out with the irregular bunch at the:
2012 VIRGINIA; Springg-aa-ggeddon, Camp-n-Shoot
I’ll have my new (to me) ICom 760 MkII and Buddipole setup, trying out my mobile battery powered field set up.
Let me know if anyone would like to attempt some comms, if your close enough for 2m that’s fine but I’d really like to attempt HF, 20/40/80m. I’ve only had my general ticket for a few weeks and have only made a limited number of contacts.
Being new to HF I know 20m is good from day, 40 someday but better at night.
If folks would like to set up an ad-hoc net that would be great. I’ve been trying to get the MD/VA/WVA crew to get into Ham and if they see it in action they might realize the value in it.
Let me know any frequencies to try and any times to listen and I’ll be ready.
I’ll have access to ZS until I reach Winchester on Thuresday, about 1700-2000zulu, then it will be hit or miss once I get in the mountains and the camp site.
Hope to QSO with a bunch of ZSRC in the field.
Also I’ll be on 2m on the way down, Balto to Frederick and down to Winchester.
One of the other guy’s is a tech so I’ll be monitoring 2m repeaters around winchester:
147.195, a high power one on a mountain that covers MD, PA and VA almost to Winchester
