Well today had its ups and downs on propagation.  Morning seemed poor and it improved in the afternoon.  At first I thought today was going to be a washout on trying to activate DM86, with no traces showing up when the XYL and I left the hotel in Dumas, TX.  Started calling while in DM95 with no responses.  When I crossed over into DM86 I saw NU4C, Paul on the waterfall and made contact.  The conditions were spotty, but good enough to put him in the log.  A bit later N9AVY, Jerry answered my call and he was in the log. Then I worked N8FL, Alan and then N4GBK, Bill.  Worked a total of 8 stations from the grid.  Visited the Capulin Volcano NM which has a great view.  We could see the mountains in CO form there, some still had snow on them.  Headed down the road toward Raton, NM for lunch and was just going to shut down when N9AVY showed up on the waterfall and Jerry got to work me in DM76.  After lunch we went down to the wildlife refuge and did some bird watching.  One of the best views was a golden eagle.  Started back up I25 toward Pueblo and called a lot for DM76, but not much action.  

I am happy with my first mobile digital adventure.  One thing I found is that can be hard to type if the roads are bouncy.  We will be in Dillon, CO for the next week.  I will post when we are starting back on the road.  

Thanks to all who had the patience to work my lower powered station.

Worked him a short while ago.  He's in DM86 New Mexico.  Conditions not good but we made a QSO. 14.070 + 2000

Also, seeing R9CQ Asiatic Russia fairly strong right now at about 14.070 + 1500.

Good Morning!!

A good day yesterday in spite of questionable propagation. We had 86 QSOs on 20m, 30m, 40m, and 80m. mostly 20m. We already have several 3 Band APE Hunter Certificate winners. Even Matt, "APE in the Boonies", W5MMW/VE3 earned his Cert. Another APE to APE first for the Pontoon Portable boys.

Starting this morning on 40m and 20m. Look for "KC9UR Pontoon Portable".

Finally figured out the problem with the Half-square. Muskrats must have chewed thru switch control cable. Now working OK.

Operation switching to Bob on 20m. Stan will call on 17m 18,100 +2,000 HZ and check-call on 6m on the half hours. 40m looks promising as we hear SSB but see no traces. Will check back again.


Look for us. Got 18 in the log on 20m so far.

Yahoo decided to bury the announcement I posted yesterday into an old thread from years past, so I'm re-posting it:


The KC9UR Pontoon Portable APE has been spotted thrashing about northeast Indiana preparing to get on the air this Friday afternoon, Aug 25th, and continuing through Sunday morning, Aug 27th.  Stan (W9SMR) and I are looking forward to our 5th consecutive APE from beautiful Round Lake, and to reconnecting with hunters of years past as well as working as many new PSKers as possible (last year's contact total exceeded 200).  As in previous years, we're offering a custom QSL card and also a nice certificate to the persistent hunters who work us on three or more bands.  We will be operating two stations on 80 thru 6 meters, propagation permitting.  We'll post updates to this forum when we get on the air.

Happy hunting!

30m is such a magic band. After working KC9UR, I found GW1AKT just below and was able to get a QSO using only 15W.

Caught Stan on 40m  weak, QSB signal, but workable.    Being as close to IN as I am, 20m was a "no go" .

Finally figured out the problem with the Half-square. Muskrats must have chewed thru switch control cable. Now working OK.

Operation switching to Bob on 20m. Stan will call on 17m 18,100 +2,000 HZ and check-call on 6m on the half hours. 40m looks promising as we hear SSB but see no traces. Will check back again.


Look for us. Got 18 in the log on 20m so far.

73,
Stan

WE finally got the antennas up and tuned.

Saw PropNet from EL99 on 6m. Will call on the half-hours around 50,290 +2,000 Hz.

Otherwise, look for KC9UR on 20m 14,070 +2,000 Hz
 
Bob tuning up for 17m. If we can find a hole around the FT8 signals..

Worked first ever APE to APE using Pontoon Portable to Pontoon Portable stations. Tnx Matt, W5MMW/VE3

Yahoo decided to bury the announcement I posted yesterday into an old thread from years past, so I'm re-posting it:


The KC9UR Pontoon Portable APE has been spotted thrashing about northeast Indiana preparing to get on the air this Friday afternoon, Aug 25th, and continuing through Sunday morning, Aug 27th.  Stan (W9SMR) and I are looking forward to our 5th consecutive APE from beautiful Round Lake, and to reconnecting with hunters of years past as well as working as many new PSKers as possible (last year's contact total exceeded 200).  As in previous years, we're offering a custom QSL card and also a nice certificate to the persistent hunters who work us on three or more bands.  We will be operating two stations on 80 thru 6 meters, propagation permitting.  We'll post updates to this forum when we get on the air.

Happy hunting!
Stan (W9SMR) and Bob (KC9UR)

Stan and Bob,

I'm listening in from time to time, starting with 20m, but...it doesn't look good at the moment.

Hopefully we'll get a break so that you can get a couple of us left-coasters.
