Yeah, there's a few of those out there. I vaguely recall there being a few "four-fers" out in the midwest, but I can't swear to it. 

You definitely get your money's worth on those!

Hey, Barry - you just have to work one station in the grid. That'll give you credit for both states.

Oops !!!    Missed it by a few miles.  EN46 covers 3 states.  Had to look back in my logs.

Worked W0JFM back in 2013 and he's in EN46  which credit was given for MN/WI/MI....  if he still around he's a triple play for those 3 states !

Hope you have luck finding him !

Do you do Mobile or Portable?

Rick - N7WE
 

Do you operate PSK31 mobile or portable?  It doesn't have to be complex or costly to go /M or /P.  And it is tons of fun!  It can be as close as a picnic table in a nearby park or as far away as an ocean cruise!  Steve - W3HF is probably the Dean of our portable/mobile operators.  And I know there are several year-after-year dedicated APE ops out there.  Dick - KC3EF has recently done some trips with more planned.  And if memory serves, Byron - W7RIV did a couple of ops last year.  I'm sure there are many others.  

If you do, how about posting a breif description of your portable/mobile setup here to encourage others to give it a try?  Power source, rig, interface, antenna, etc. and anything else you want to add.  Share your knowledge and help someone else experience the fun of PSK31 - /M or /P.

Want to give it a try but have questions?  Post here.  There are lots of knowledgable members who will be very glad to help.

GO MOBILE - GO PORTABLE!

DN01 and DN02.  These two grids are located on the Nevada-Oregon border.  One on each side.  Easy-Peasy to bag both on the same trip.  Good starting point is Lakeview Oregon (nice town – we’ve been there).  The grids are about 27 miles SE as the crow flies.  There are good roads to follow – albeit a few more miles – and it is great country.  Even has wild burros and an Opal mine open to the public!

Rick
I agree this is a good one to try.
Good accommodation in Lakeview, Opals in Nevada, if ur lucky Opals at Juniper Ridge, And of course, there is the world famous
sunstone mines at Plush, OR. Vy easy to spend a week there.

Well, the knee surgery went well and only took 35 minutes!!

now the recovery process. So far, it has been okay but painful. two of the
procedures I’m supposed got lift my leg and so far I have been unable to do so
but today I was able to raise it about an inch or two so some progress made
today. I am supposed to start outpatient therapy on Tuesday so I’m not
looking forward to that but we will see.

Subject: [070Club] Wondering about 6m PSK31 this coming season

I'm wondering about 6m PSK31 for the coming season.  In the past, I've used a 6m halo and done mostly JT65 and MSK144. But there has been very little PSK.  In fact, I only have 6 - 6m PSK31 QSOs in the log.  So before I spend some $ on a yagi, though I'd check here to see just how much interest, if any, there is for 6m.  Thanks for any and all replies.

That's amazing! 35 minutes.
In the old days you would have had to just deal with it.  So glad that it is not an option anymore.

Just for kicks I did a breakdown of the hams in EN28 via QRZ.com.  Here's what I found:


Technican    23


General        14


Advanced      1


Extra              8


Expired          11    (since 2016 and older)



                  __________


TOTAL          57    QRZ says 58 so I may have missed one


Possible PSK  =23



They have a club website, but looks mostly repeater oriented    http://www.lowra.com
