The Lake Superior Grid Expedition cards have been
printed and are in transit. I hope to receive them
in a few days.
With that in mind, I should have some ready before the
AMSAT Symposium. If you worked me on the trip and plan
to attend the Symposium, please drop me an email off line.
I will bring cards to Chicago and give them to you in
There will be 11 different cards for the various locations. A
picture of the Minnesota card is on my website, papays.com/sat
and qrz.com. There were about 350 unique callsigns out of
2069 qso's. This is a good indicator that it's not just a
handful of stations that are operating on the birds. There is
a growing interest in satellites and many of the newer operators
are working towards their Satellite VUCC!
Operating "portable" away from your home grid is both challenging
and rewarding. Once you try it, you'll always think about taking
your gear with you when you have the opportunity to travel. There
is always a need for uncommon grids. Many grids that were once
active can become rare in a short time. Don't be afraid to show
up from any grid. There will always be someone that needs it and
they will appreciate the effort that you make to operate from there.
