Get outdoors again on Sunday 24 July Noon to 1600 local time to join the
annual Golden Packet attempt.

We need you with your D700 to drive/hike to the top of some of the highest
mountains in the USA and set up as a portable APRS digipeater to see if we
can link a Golden Packet across thousands of miles.

There is an attempt along the Appalachian Trail from Alabama to Maine and
along the Pacific Crest trail from San Diego to Seattle.  Good portable
stations are needed on many mountain tops!  See the above web page for the

IN particular we need stations in the East:
