Definitely way behind 070 ! ARRL probably won't get a lot of action. The Centennial was good, but then ARRL sought to capitalize on that with the NPOTA to drive interest in LOTW and make money for the League.

This one is just crazy. They'd be better off with something more unique like working U.S. ZIP codes, rest stops on the Interstate system, people in various McDonalds (or other fast food places) parking lots, or anything else more creative.

Not much of ARRL fan these days...

Arrl just announced a grid square chase for 2018 automatically done for
any log submitted in 2018.

Years behind the 070 club.

 it isn't bad enough with weak signals and propagation ...  some clown in Knoxville is running RTTY right in the middle of PSK31 on 14070-72 !    Now we had to fend of RTTY & FT-8.

Re: 30M

Barry,

Sry I only have 40m and 20m available right now.  Yeah E & W routes haven't picked up yet.
Should have purchased the 30m kit from Dave when I had the chance.  Next time I won't be so slow about things.

We'll get there.

Our north-south paths remain strong while east-west is sporadic at best.
I find that 30M is providing some openings around 2400Z as well as 1500Z.
Is 30M an option for you?

Barry,

I'm keeping an eye on the WSPR tracks because there are several stations right in Vancouver.  I check daily on what they are seeing to determine if there is any chance for a contact.
So far they are seeing a lot of hams in 6 land and a few in the mid-west but very sparse from my area.  Also the Gray Line is beginning to shift in our favor so that may be a help.

I've noticed a big drop-off here of PSK31 on 20m with a corresponding pick-up of FT-8.  I'm hoping that someone will remain so that I can get out West a bit although I did have a QSO with K7VIC in Idaho a few weeks ago so there is still hope.  North/South routes are still strong here
