I've had the Chesapeake Bay Bridge/Tunnel on my Bucket List
for many years and have decided to get it crossed-off this
As a key part of the Trip, I'll be activating Delaware and
several skinny Coastal Grids on Satellites. A number of folks
have mentioned that they still need DE confirmed for their
It'll be a quick trip with driving over 1200 miles in 3 days
with numerous stops for passes and 2 overnights. I'll leave
early on Wed 5/24 and head for Delaware in hopes of getting
there early afternoon for several passes into the late evening.
Thu 5/25 has me heading down the DelMarVa Peninsula to cross
the Bridge by early evening when I'll be in the Norfolk Area.
Fri 5/26 has me on the road for the Home QTH.
My hope is to activate Grid Lines wherever possible to cut down
the traveling. The plan is to do FM29/28/27/26/16 in that order
on FO29, SO50, AO7 and the XW's. I have no set operating schedule
as of now and will be relying on my phone's AMSAT-Droid for the
Pass info. The Q's will all go into LoTW after I return home and
will be posted as simply K8BL as in the past for US contacts.
