The best spot for working EN67 is the top of Brockway Mountain. The view of
Lake Superior and the surrounding countryside from there is fantastic. I
worked AO-51 from time to time at my summer place in EN56 and have worked
some folks last year from EN67. I didn't get the time this year to get to
that grid. I'm back down in EN82 for the winter but will be back to EN56 in
early May and will try to EN67 then.

> After several years of activating Eagle Harbor Lighthouse (EN57) without
HTs or an Arrow antenna, we were asked by the local hams in upper Michigan
why we don't operate on the satellites anymore. We are now planning on
bringing our sat gear in August 2010 to activate at least EN57 and EN67. And
if Al doesn't have EN56 by that time, I will personally drive down to
Jacobsville and activate it.
> EN66 is on our way to Eagle Harbor, but we usually pass through that
region in mid afternoon EDT on a Friday. As a result, all of our previous
attempts to activate EN66 were unsuccessful. But we will try again next
year, provided there is an FM satellite within range while we are driving
