Check into the Annual Golden Packet Event from 1100 to 1400 on 445.925
(voice PL 100) for the 15 Mountain Tops along the Appalachians, trying to
relay the Golden APRS packet from Maine to Georgia.  If you have APRS,
monitor 144.34 to see the packets.  Do not transmit though until the Golden
Packet message has been successful.
