I'm back to running counties on HF CW and SSB. With 53 counties in North Dakota to put out, it's difficult to predict when I'll be in a particular grid square. You can check a county hunting website (http://ch.w6rk.com) for spots on my HF ops and see where I'm at. For the time being, it's the best thing I've got for tracking since I'm not on APRS yet.
We should be in DN86 and DN96 for much of today (17 Oct). But since we're just a few miles from the ND / SD state line, we're going to swing across into SD to hit the DN85 / DN95 line for the AO27 pass which rises locally at 17/1919Z. At this latitude, I'll miss the first minute or two of voice operation, but I'll do my best with the limited time.
After this pass, we'll return to ND to focus on the grids and counties there.
Jim, ND9M / VQ9JC
Bowman ND / Bowman Co. / DN86
