February is when the XYL and I do the snowbird thing from Ohio
and stay with our Daughter's Family in SE Texas. Not willing to
give up Ham Radio during that time, I bring my SAT gear with me
and activate nearby Grids.
Yesterday, I checked out my equipment/antenna from the driveway
and worked 7 stations from EM20vg, including UT1FG on FO29.
Today, I went to EL39 and worked 18 stations on SO50 & FO29.
This location makes it easy to activate several nearby Grids since it
is almost in the corner. EL39, EL29 and EM30 are all a short drive.
I have a good spot mapped-out for EM30/31 line, too.
The activations would all be during daylight hours and probably just
on FO29 & SO50. I get very nervous doing things at night that people
If you want to schedule something between now and 3/4, let me know.
73, Bob K8BL/5
