Our road trip to western Canada was completed last week. We traveled over 5900 miles and were able to activate 30 grids. The grids included: EM03/04, EM08/09, EN00/01, EN03, EN05, DN97, DN88, DN89, DO60, DN49, DO40, DO21, DO00, CO90, CN78, CN88, CN97, DN07, DN17, DN27, DN26, DN37, DN45, DN76, DN75, DN73 and DN71. A total of 169 contacts were made on satellites SO-50, FO-29, AO-85 and XW-2C
All contacts will be uploaded to LOTW within the next few days. All Canadian contacts will be uploaded using the call N8RO/VE5, 6 or 7. All other contacts will be uploaded using my call N8RO without any portable designation. If you would like a paper card please send a SASE. All paper cards will be mailed out over the next few weeks.
After completing this road trip I have now activated a total of 122 unique grids during my portable operations. Many thanks for all of the contacts on this trip and the previous portable operations.
