K9APW - (Change from previously published plan)

The earlier announced plans for Dan, K9IBM, and Dick, K9APW, to activate 14 south west and west central Wisconsin counties for the contest have been canceled due to unplanned events.

 

Instead of being a mobile operation, we may still simply set up a portable operation from Iowa county -- again, plans are a bit indefinite but most hoped for!!

 

See you on the air, hopefully, from Blue Mound State Park in Iowa County --

WB9TFF and WB9TFH

Hello all,

 

Donna WB9TFF and I WB9TFH will be mobile in the WIQP.

She and I will call with our call, so you can work us both.

Route may change, right now counties,

Racine

Waukesha

Washington

Ozaukee is semi-rare so most of our time there.

Bands; 20m, 40m, and 80m, SSB using 2 Hamsticks on each of the rear truck doors and A/B switch.

We plan to make a least 12 Q's in each county for the bonus points before parking in Ozaukee for the rest of the WIQP.

K9TIT

K9TIT will once again be mobile for the WI QSO Party this year.

We will have three operators, Tim KC9FSH, Andy KC9IZF and Nate AB9TE. The plan right now is to attempt two HF stations, primarily on 20m and 40m SSB however band choice may change. We will also have a 2m/440 station that we will make contacts on however the main focus will be on HF.

 

The counties will be the following:

Door

Kewaunee

Brown

Manitowoc

Sheboygan

Ozaukee (Depending on time)

Washington (Depending on time)

Fond du Lac

Dodge

Green Lake

Waushara

Winnebago

Waupaca (Depending on time)

Outagamie

 

We typically alter our route as we run but we will for sure operate from the counties that are not listed as depending on time.

W9NAW

Hello Everyone--I am on the move again!! This time I will be operating from Green Lake County (GRL). I have picked a motel in Princeton at the junction of State Roads 23 and 73 (Acorn Ridge Motel).

 

I will have two different OCFD antennas strung between trees. I will probably start on 20 meters and then 40 and 75 (all SSB mode). I will have a rig monitoring 146.55 MHz--FM. Any of the rovers that are close, give me a call.

 

Good luck to all. Most of all have fun.
