Saw you twice, but the band is not good right now.  There also is a Olivia station on top of you.

A modern linear amp is 'history' for me. After a dismal time on those 3 bands all thoughts of replacing my 50 year old Heath HA14 amps are off the table. 🤔.

Paul:

Same thing happened here a few years back. I was working a club member (NIDXA) who was working in VE3-land with a station he had up there. He also had his home Station about 30 miles from me. I joked about him being able to work himself ; so he fired up his home station remotely and worked himself with his VE3 call and his U.S. Call. I worked both of them and got confirmations on LoTW ! A strange QSO, but fun !

No matter how you figure it, combining his WA and HI logs, he got credit for both Hawaii and WA.

Even more amusing: I have not logged a QSO with CN98 on any mode, any band.  None.

Paula,

Grid chasing is fun!!

And the 070 club members provide these rare opportunities to finish off a state and roll up the numbers like no other group!

I'm sitting at 329 Grids (of 488) and 23 States completed. A long way to go yet.

Have fun!!

Keep us posted.
I do hear you. The minimum travel time for me to get into DN08 is about 4 hours. So it will take a little more planning than a 1.5 hour jaunt up into CN98.
I’m not saying I’m not going to do it. I’m just saying it needs to be part of a bigger effort or some other reason to travel to that part of the state, as it’s either an overnight trip, or else it’s a really long day consisting of mostly driving and a little radio.

It’ll be a distance of just about 100 mies/160km. It’ll make for an interesting day, for sure.

It’ll be nice to get some contacts on 30 tho. My OCFD is a horrible performer on 30m so the chance to work that band is a treat.

The plan is set.  I will go up to CN98 tomorrow.  Folks who can’t work tomorrow, do not despair, I will make another trip later this summer.

I plan to be on site by 6/22 2030Z and QRV by 2100Z - a little time to allow for a certain amount of futzing around, as I have not been to the planned site.  If I can arrange things perfectly I might be able to get there earlier but for now that’s the plan.

If the site doesn’t work out plan B is to just drive around until I find a place to set up.

Current plan is to wrap things up around 6/23 0130Z.

I will start on 20m.  Other bands as conditions permit.  I should be in cell coverage and I’ll be looking at pskreporter, etc. to try to judge what seems promising.

Barry, when I at home, I am lucky if I can see your signals on 20m, I think they just go right over my head.  Up in Granite Falls the distance will not be much more favorable, so we may need to get adaptable and creative to make it happen.  That will be fun, I am looking forward to that challenge!
