Re: Grids

When I started chasing grids did the same, but wasn't satisfied with size; so I took it to copy place and had it enlarged to twice the size in B&W.  When I worked a new grid I just color it it with a pencil (your choice of color).
Chart fits on back of shack door.  I abandoned it for the chart because my station is in cabinet with doors and the Excel sheet is taped to door for quick reference . 

This afternoon I saw a station on 40m who was in DM97, but he faded qiuckly and was gone in a minute. Rats !

I made a chart like that but I also have a copy of the ARRL Grid Locator for North America map.  It is printed in landscape format on regular 8 1/2 by 11 paper.  What I do is I put a red dot in the square of every grid that shows worked in the 070 Checker.  I occasionally will pull up the info on the checker and be sure my chart agrees with the grids approved by the checker.  At a quick glance, I can see if I have that grid.  I have most of the grids in the eastern US but a lot of spaces left in the west.  I also put an X in the squares that the 070 awards do not use.

Happy Radio!

A few months ago I made a little list of needed grids using Excel and keep next to radio so when I work a grid I can quickly see if I need it.  It has been very helpful/  Last night I compared it to the checker  and found that a few had been worked .   Crossed them off list, but found a couple that were missing and not worked.

Wonder if anyone working on grids does same ???    Still have lots of grids to work and it may be years before I finish , if ever.
