Thanks all! As Soren noted, this is definitely the beginning of a new era! Only NJ7H will end roving, Gabe the Lunatic will live on (as long as I don’t perish on an ice road on the way)! I do plan to activate many Alaskan and Canadian grids in the near future, and, dare I say, UA0. Juneau is undoubtedly remote (only access by air and sea), so for most days I’ll be isolated to CO28, but I will no doubt make many excursions. I know at some point in the spring I’ll be doing some simulator training in Anchorage. I’ll definitely get around, so my northern roving is just beginning! There are ferries and seaplanes and ASA flights leaving from Juneau every day, so I’ll be able to get around! The terrain in Juneau itself will definitely pose a challenge, but I’ll be doing my best to find the good spots to work from and make sure anyone theoretically within range and capability gets Alaska and CO28 on satellite!
