Hello all,

My wife and I will be taking 5 days to drive a rental truck from DFW, North
Texas to Boston to move daughter and new husband's stuff to their new home
and law school.  The type of truck and the logistics of the trip will not
really work with casual satellite ops.  Maybe someday.

However, I would love to make terrestrial QSOs with some of you folks along
the way as I will have a dual bander and a small antenna mounted to the
truck. Would love to say hi on local repeaters along the way.

Here is the route and rough projected time table.

Friday, August 28th, Afternoon-evening.  Dallas, Texarkana, Little Rock.
Saturday, August 29th, Little Rock, Memphis, Nashville, Elizabethtown, KY,
Springfield KY.
Sunday, August 30th, Springfield, KY, Lexington, KY, Cincinnati, Columbus,
Monday, August 31st, Erie, Buffalo, Rochester, Syracuse, Schenectady.
Tuesday, September 1st Albany Springfield, Boston.

There might be some schedule flex, especially the last two days but that
should be close.  Contact me off list via my n5hyp at yahoo.com email with
Callsign, city, repeater/s PL and other pertinent information.

Perhaps we can exchange more than just a Grid Square.  What a concept.
