It gives me great pleasure to announce the awarding of the PSK Traveller Certificate and Rollo Dog Tag to Dick – KC3EF – for his activation of many rare and wanted grids while operating as KC3EF/M during his trips throughout the United States.  He has made a memorable contribution to the 070 Club and its members through his efforts and it is fitting that he be recognized in this manner. Thank You Dick!

And special thanks to Kathy his XYL, who drove many, many miles while Dick was at the keyboard.  She contributed greatly to this effort through her very willing help and support. Thank You Kathy!

Hi Paula and Fr. Richard,

 

Looks like will be in DE from 11/19 thru 11/24.  Probably some ops mobile.  I will have a 20 mtr dipole and a wire vertical feed with my autotuner.  So we can probably try 20 mtrs and possibly 40 mtrs.  Can try higher bands if open.  Most operating will be after 7:00 pm EST, but could be earlier.  Will post when I am on the air.

Dick, I too need DE confirmed on LoTW to complete my WAS. However, it might be tricky as I am using a “compromise” antenna – endfed longwire only 6’ off the ground. I will be watching for you Thanksgiving week.

Fr Richard,

 

Thanks for your kind words.  The XYL and I enjoy activating grids as we travel along.  The XYL gets worried when we don’t work some of the regulars.  Do you still need DE on 40 mtrs?  Will be up there for Thanksgiving week.

Today I went thru grids that most did not need.  Barry wanted DN20 in NE and MO.  Just before the grid Barry was pounding in, no trouble coping.  A minute or two later when I hit the grid he was barely readable.  On the other side of the Mississippi in DN20 MO did not copy him at all.  Best signals were coming from the South.  Had several long QSO with stations in FL.  

Looks like tomorrows grids, unless real-time changes,  are:  EM37, EM47, EM46, EM45, EM55, EM54, EM63, and EM62.  Heading from Springfield, MO to Birmingham, AL.  

If you want to follow our travels send me your personal email and I will send the Google map of the routes.  XYL plans the trips out months in advance and we know the route and where we are staying well in advance.  Don't want to post on group since they can be large.

Not much to report for today.  Propagation seemed to be favoring the East Coast.  Had a couple of nice rag chews and gave out grids to a couple of people.  Tried to work VA7GEM when in EM64, which he wanted, but no luck.  The entire trip thru the part of the grid on I22 took only about 12 minutes at 75 mph.  

Tomorrows grids are nothing special but if anyone want a Q I will be on for a bit in each grid.  EM63, EM71, EM70, EM80, and EL89 my home grid.

If I were a billionaire I would certainly finance your expedition to western grids.  It is a very worthwhile effort and I believe everyone one is grateful for these rare, semi-rare grids.   Hope you and XYL have had lots of fun along the way !

Hi Jerry,
 
If you want to pay for it would be glad to, hi hi.
 
We seem to be going out West at least once a year so stay tuned.
 
Propagation did not favor the mid-West again.  Most of the station worked were in the South.

Hi Barry,

 

Called you all the way thru EM64, but not luck.  Did not see much on waterfall.  Only a couple of stations on the East Coast.

someone else answered and caught your attention.

Hi Paula and Fr. Richard,

 

Looks like will be in DE from 11/19 thru 11/24.  Probably some ops mobile.  I will have a 20 mtr dipole and a wire vertical feed with my autotuner.  So we can probably try 20 mtrs and possibly 40 mtrs.  Can try higher bands if open.  Most operating will be after 7:00 pm EST, but could be earlier.  Will post when I am on the air.

Dick, I too need DE confirmed on LoTW to complete my WAS. However, it might be tricky as I am using a “compromise” antenna – endfed longwire only 6’ off the ground. I will be watching for you Thanksgiving week.

Fr Richard,

 

Thanks for your kind words.  The XYL and I enjoy activating grids as we travel along.  The XYL gets worried when we don’t work some of the regulars.  Do you still need DE on 40 mtrs?  Will be up there for Thanksgiving week.

Looks like tomorrows grids, unless real-time changes,  are:  EM37, EM47, EM46, EM45, EM55, EM54, EM63, and EM62.  Heading from Springfield, MO to Birmingham, AL.  

If you want to follow our travels send me your personal email and I will send the Google map of the routes.  XYL plans the trips out months in advance and we know the route and where we are staying well in advance.  Don't want to post on group since they can be large.
