CHIMP CHASE - Let Us Know Your Plans
You’ve had a couple weeks to make your plans. Please let us know if you plan to go Chimp Chase portable and we will look for you!!
A Chimp qualified portable expedition site must be away from your home radio shack. You may use home power but you need to set up a temporary/portable antenna and station away from the home shack. Backyard ops and park picnic benches are encouraged for this category.
If this operation is at an official POTA or SOTA so much the better! Let us know the details using the Reflector.
For this introductory attempt to be a valid CHIMP CHASE, the operation must take place during the Daze #4 event and make at least 5 two-way PSK31 contacts with different call signs / bands.
Post your intended CHIMP activation by responding to this notice. Include planned times and bands of operation to greatly increase your successes.
Note that no prior approval is required to enjoy a sunny afternoon on the patio!
Following successful completion of your CHIMP operation, post your story on the Reflector or just send me an email advising me of your successful operation and a “CHIMP CHASE Atta-Boy” PDF will be emailed to you.
