Re: Update 2 - Planned August PSK31 Expedition (APE) Activations
Not much forgotten there. Sounds like a blast!
Can you give me a UTC shutdown target time? I invented 24:00 for your Aug. 7 APE.
I will repost an update with your added APE in a few days.

I'm also going to be operating on Saturday, August 14th, from the Palomar Observatory in the Cleveland National Forest, at 5,617' asl. It's grid DM13.
Primary will be 20 meters, but I can go to other bands for local type stations, and as the propagation permits I'll try higher bands. I definitely will try CQ'n on the higher bands. 17m, 15, 12m and 10m.
I'll start about 0500 Z, +/-, and go all day.
What am I forgetting?

Be on the lookout for APEs starting:
August 4th, 19:00 to 24:00 - KK6KMU
August 7th, 05:30 to 24:00 – N6MG
This looks to be one of the most popular activities this year. This is the most APE activations we have had since 2012 when 10 APEs took to the field.
