The 2018 ARRL International Grid Chase applies to all bands except 60
meters. See http://www.arrl.org/news/announcing-the-arrl-

I figure EL79 will be popular. I wiil be portable at the lighthouse on St
George Island on New Years Day for this pass. I will appreciate any

SO-50 will be visible from St George Island, on Monday, January 1, 2018
16:16:39 UTC
Starting in the SW (223°)
Ending in the NNE (19°) at 16:29:48 UTC
Maximum elevation: 39.8°°

Then on to St. George Island State Park. At the park will start HF Ops at
1200 CST/1800 UTC for two hours. We will spot to DX Summit.  We will upload
the logs to LOTW. Upload yours to obtain Grid Chase credit for matching

Note the park is KFF-0635, the Lighthouse is USA 140, and the Island is
FL007S and NA-85.  Jim K4LIX and Cory N4UVR may also be active from EL79.
