Terry W8ZN and Andy K1RA will be activating the Grid Pirates K8GP station from grid square FM19bb in northern Virginia this upcoming ARRL January VHF contest. We will be operating in the multi-operator, high power category, though only using 2 stations. We will have dedicated 50 and 144 MHz stations and 222 MHz through 10 GHz will be handled by the 144 MHz operator. Please be patient if you wish to work us on the higher bands as we may be multi-tasking to cover all the bands with just the two of us.
We also plan on operating some WSJT on 50 and 144 MHz with 1.5 KW power and multiple antennas. We will mainly be looking to work random contacts. We’ll be calling CQ U or D on the respective WSJT calling frequencies. If you would like a sked with us, we’d be happy to set one up with you and attempt a contact. Please email us at k8gp2011 @ k8gp . net if you would like more info. 73 and hope to contact you in the contest!
