I did check to see about how she felt about your request.
Not in the cards, but maybe Tom could help out.
Had a look in the log and I also need that on PSK31 but did make 6M USB contact 2014 Field Day

Don't suppose you could sell her on a KX3 for a birthday gift and a birthday minitrip across the border to CN98 could you?  Lots of us would really appreciate CN98 - hi hi!  Happy Early Birthday wishes.

Barry -


Thanks for reminding me--I forgot about that. I'm still looking for hole 13 because my one QSO with that area (the wet grid BE05) was prior to the GOLF starting date.

We can look even closer to home with our Golf endorsement
which could not be completed without the wet ones.

Congrats Jim
Glad to help.

TU 4 the update Rick.

Oct18 may be tough as it is near my B'day es wife likes to surprise
me with mini trips.
May ask to stay home this year.

Big Congrats to Jim K5SP.  That was the last QSO he needed for 366!  Fine job.  

And Barry VB7150 - you are a trooper up there in your piece of Paradise.  If I'm not mistaken you just need tomorrow and then Oct. 18.

366 is doable!  It just takes determination, perserverance, and only a little bit of luck.

They may not count for DXCC but they still count for certain grid awards.

In fact, at least one award program (www.gapawards.com) has a special category for "wet" grids that don't contain any land.

P.S. For those that don't recognize GAPA, it's the renamed awards that were formerly known as TARA's grid and prefix awards (which actually, even longer ago, started out as PODXS and 070 awards).

I would like to see what they use. Any input you have would be appreciated.
I have access to a field out back from me. I've just not taken the time to
put any wires up at home. I also would like a portable one to use for
outings.

how much land do you have...Our FD group sets out beverages for 40 and 80

only sit a few feet above ground, a termination resistor at one end makes
them directional, some matching needs to be done(guess I'll have to check
the antenna handbook).

Thanks Barry, VB7150, we struggled but got the contact completed.  Your signal was very strong at first, but then really faded and when we closed you were down in the mud.

Thanks again

Jim, K5SP

I agree about unpopulated grids.
Also need to factor in the Black Holes of which there appear to be a few.

Yup, kinda figured that many grids out West have more critters than people.  Some are probably government land which is probably posted "no trespassing" (Area 51).  Some is also in mountains or deserts which often has little or no population.

Guess I'm like you in that I call CQ  and am always surprised at whoever  answers... just like fishing !  When I work someone for the second time, it's like meeting up with an old friend.
