I think the terrain got him. He was N bound on 264 and that is lots of canyons and mesas. Saw him work another couple of stations, then a EA station opened calling CQ USA right on top of him. Saw Stan move up and continue calling...then Dick was gone, gone, gone. But everyone hang in there. He should pop back up when the road gets up on top of one of the mesas.

HE'S BACK 14.072.100 AT 2043 utc!

I saw Dick signing off with KD9HAV about 15 minutes ago. PSKReporter shows him being seen in SE.

Calling him but no traces from him. Seeing lots of EU signals here.

GL...need DM46. Must have missed DM55 earlier.

Looks like we will be going thru DM65, DM55, DM45, DM46, and either DM47 or DM36 and staying overnight in DM37.  Probably won't hit any of the wanted grids until after 12:00 PM MDT.  I will try to post a more exact time, but depending on the route we take, there may not be good cell coverage.

Missed all you guys !    Just hooked up Signalink USB for the last time before giving up and it worked.  Had a QSO on 40m with N3CAU at 1945 UTC. 

 

Maybe I’ll be able to catch KC3EF/m in a needed grid.

DM63 Activation

Richard Rohrer
 

Worked the following stations today from DM63:   N7WE, AK4MK, NN9K, and KK4ZSH on the way to the wildlife refuge.  When we left the refuge fired  up the radio and worked VA7GEM and N2MLP just before leaving the DM63 grid.  Hit very heavy TStorms that were left over from the tropic storm.  

We may be changing our route thru NM and AZ on our way to DM46, I will post before we leave Albuquerque.

Re: KC3EF - DM63

Richard Rohrer
 

Yes, Steve is correct, we visited the Very Large Array Radio Telescope.  Really neat to see.  28 antennas covering 13 miles.  When we were out in the antenna field they started repointing the antennas.  It was neat to watch a choregraphed movement of multiple antennas.  The have a big hydraulic crawler that moves the antennas from position to position.  There are 82 miles of rail track for the crawler to move on.  No RF emitters are allowed on the site, had to turn off everything.  This place is in the middle of no where.  It was a 1 ½ hour drive from Albuquerque to the turn off and then another 1 drive to the site.  Nothing around there.  All the employees are bused in from a couple of locations.

I assumed he meant the Very Large Array, based on his route (which includes New Mexico).

 

Also, all those beautiful antennas would be an appropriate destination for a ham.

OK, I have to finally ask.  I looked up VLA and got Very Large Array, Virginia Library Association, Volunteer Lawyers for the Arts as well as several other references that probably do not apply.
