Portable Goals and NPOTA!
I can’t believe it has been almost a year since I have posted here! I have lots of interests and tend to bounce around between them.
But for 2016 I want to be more consistently in ham radio. So I have set a goal…
There are about 45 weeks left in 2016, so my goal is to complete 45 portable activities this year and document them here on my blog!
Also, tomorrow, February 25th, 2016 I will be activating NPOTA TR07,TR11,TR14 (Oregon NHT + Santa Fe NHT + California NHT) from Lone Elm park in Olathe, KS.
I will be operating my KX3 5 watts CW (maybe SSB if time allows) into a vertical. 14.060+/- and 7.030 +/-. I plan to arrive about 19:00 UTC (1:00 pm local) and operate for a couple of hours.
If you hear me please spot me. This will be my first activation, and my CW is a bit rusty, so the sending speed will be slow! Be patient with me!
This park has historical significance because it was used as a major campground along these 3 trails. Originally it was about 80 acres, and so many trees were cut down by the campers it became known as “Lone Elm”.
That’s all for today, I will report back after the NPOTA activation tomorrow!
