K8GP Rover plans for ARRL Sept VHF 2014

Terry W8ZN and I (Andy/K1RA) will be roving again this coming weekend as K8GP/R to attempt to better our effort in June. This time we will attempt to take the newly rebuilt W8ZN Rover (Dodge RAM, towing trailer), which will offer us more power, bigger antennas and extra operating room over the N3UW van. We will take a somewhat similar route as in June. As it stands our grid stops and rough times will be:

Sat. GMT
FM19aw 1800-2000
FN10ca 2100-2300
FN00rg 0100-0400 (barring access issues)
or
FN00wa/FM09wx 0100-0400

Sun. GMT
FN00rg 1000-1300
FM09te 1530-1730
FM18ax 1830-2030
FM08us 2130-0300

Hoping for good E-W tropo Sunday morning if Hepburn tropo predictions hold true and maybe some ES or AU on 50 & 144 MHz during the evenings.

I’ll op 50-432 MHz and Terry will op 902-10368 MHz.

I’ll use our standard freq of 144.247 for coordination and fallback and use pass freqs of 50.247, 144.247, 222.147 and 432.147.

73 and GL to all this weekend!
