Thanks Buddy! That was a huge effort, thanks for trying. We'll look again today. I won't be on the air, but let us know when you are on if you can. 

If you have any other questions feel free to give me a call.

Hi all,

My first attempt at an APE activation did not go very well.  I only
tried 20 meters, and I heard a lot of activity... but they couldn't hear
me!  Running QRP level of 5 watts wasn't productive as I only was able
to make 2 contacts for about 4-5 hours of calling.   I had a ton of QRM
from other stations and then some Olivia stations cranked up.   I'll try
again tomorrow from same location, hope to get on the air from noon to
around 4pm.  Next week I'll be operating from a location closer to home
but still QRP as only rig I have presently is a KX2.

Hi Bryon,

Yea, website maintenance is TIME CONSUMING !!!!  I have my own web site where I sell my artwork and it can be a pain.

You can go ahead and post the following schedule

Activation Date: 8/15
            17:00 Z; 20 Meters PSK31
            18:00 Z, 40 Meters PSK31
            19:00 Z, 15 Meters PSK31

I will be on more (days/times), if anyone is interested, watch the Parks on the Air Website Spotting page POTA Spotting.  I will spot myself when I go active.




BTW, good job on the website.  Remember you are a VOLUNTEER :-)

Dale,

Hello sir. I've not done a good job updating the website this year. I'm going to do that this week. I've been sending out posts to the group about who has had events. Sorry you missed those. You can post to the group, or you can email me and I'll post to the group. Once you know we will want to send it out so that we can help drive you some activity. I can also add yours to the website with the others.

Thanks,
Bryon, W7RIV

Hey, Dale!

I'm not worried about the two week window. That exists so that we can give you plenty of advertising time.

Do pass along the days, at least, please. Past that, just feel free to post to the groups.io email reflector.

Speaking of, I see that you're a member of that group, but that you're set to only receive "special" messages. That's eliminating you from the fun! :-)

Seriously, consider being a regular subscriber so that you'll get the other APE notifications and such. Here's the link to the group: https://groups.io/g/070Club

Good luck with your APE event!

I know I am outside the 2 week window, however, my wife and I have decided to go camping in the Natahala National Forest next week.

I did not see a page for any 2018 activites, but would be interested in doing one.

I can do 15/20/40 M with my portable setup.

Do you need specific day and time, or can I post somewhere?

Let me know

Monitored 10.135 from 0100 to 0200.  No PSK signals detected.  Lots of other digital stations on the waterfall using different modes.  It is about 600 miles, should have been able to work you?

Looking for you both on 20m and 40m but seeing only a few faint traces on 20, none of which seem to be you. 40m looks dead to me. Will keep looking… we need only a brief opening!

APE Activation

wd4diy@...
 

I will be doing an APE Activation August 13-17. 
Will be running from Natahala National Forest in the mountains of western North Carolina near Highlands, NC
I will post here 24 hours before activation and then post band/frequency when ready to go.  This will also be good for POTA if you are chasing Parks.
I plan to be on 15/20/40 and will be capable of running 50 watts ( though it is seldom necessary ) and will try to be on for several hours.  Will call CQ PTOA or PODXS APE, call me on either and if you send me a PODXS membership number, I will reply with mine.  I will also be spotted on the POTA board.

Hope to hear you,

73's

APE station

Hi all,

I will go APE this Wednesday and Thursday I will call CQ APE and add /P
to my callsign.   I will be operating 20 and 40 meters. My only rig
right now is an Elecraft KX2 so this will be 100% QRP on battery power. 
Hope you guys can hear me!   I plan to be on from 10AM to 4-5 PM,
depending on condx and wx.  Sorry for short notice, and I also hope to
try this each Wed/Thurs. of the month.

Looks like I might be free at the end of the week for an APE event in Maryland.  Will be heading to Deep Creek Lake or thereabouts for some fishing and radio fun.  Look for me on 20 and 40.  Will be checking the rules so I comply.  Usually run portable from a van camper when on the road.

I also forgot a key component. My charger for the Yaesu 817nd PA 48 B. I am on a 10 week trip, won’t return home until mid sept. I hoped to operate from Mt Battie in Camden ME and from Prince Edward Island in Canada. Is there anyone in the Camden ME area that would sell me one of these chargers or the AA battery holder for said radio. I will be in Camden ME until Aug 8.
