Dick, I too need DE confirmed on LoTW to complete my WAS. However, it might be tricky as I am using a “compromise” antenna – endfed longwire only 6’ off the ground. I will be watching for you Thanksgiving week.

Fr Richard,


Thanks for your kind words.  The XYL and I enjoy activating grids as we travel along.  The XYL gets worried when we don’t work some of the regulars.  Do you still need DE on 40 mtrs?  Will be up there for Thanksgiving week.

Today I went thru grids that most did not need.  Barry wanted DN20 in NE and MO.  Just before the grid Barry was pounding in, no trouble coping.  A minute or two later when I hit the grid he was barely readable.  On the other side of the Mississippi in DN20 MO did not copy him at all.  Best signals were coming from the South.  Had several long QSO with stations in FL.  

Looks like tomorrows grids, unless real-time changes,  are:  EM37, EM47, EM46, EM45, EM55, EM54, EM63, and EM62.  Heading from Springfield, MO to Birmingham, AL.  

If you want to follow our travels send me your personal email and I will send the Google map of the routes.  XYL plans the trips out months in advance and we know the route and where we are staying well in advance.  Don't want to post on group since they can be large.
