We are planning to do our Mobile WIQP Expedition this year with a new method and a small change in the crew. The crew will consist of Mike WO9B, Frank KA9FZR and Matt KD9CVA.
We are planning to operate CW only as WO9B. The counties will be MIL, OZA, SHE, MAN, BRO, OUT, WIN, FON, DOD, WAS, MIL, RAC, WAL, JEF, WAU. 14 counties in all. We will be running an APRS tracker as WO9B-9. So follow us as we go. This will be our 2nd WIQP mobile attempt and hopefully we will have learned a thing or two. Looking for lot o'contacts and having a fun afternoon.
Finally, as we did last year, the post WIQP get together will be held at the Bosch in Hales Corners. Come on down. Tell a tale or two. Grab a burger and beer. We plan to be there by 8:00 PM.
Changed the plan just a bit to the following: MIL, OZA, SHE, MAN, BRN, OUT, WIN, FON, DOD, COL, DAN, ROC, WAL, KEN, RAC, MIL (3/6).

I am watching the long range wx models and it’s not looking good right now. As of today (3/5) I am not planning on being mobile, but should the forecast change and shape up I can throw my mobile together pretty quickly. If not mobile, I be looking for WI stations from MN.
I will be operating the BONUS STATION instead of my call from Green County (GRE). Operation will be from the Gasthaus Motel Highway 69 and 30th Street, south side of Monroe, WI. Operation will be on 75, 40 and 20 SSB using OCFD antennas as well as on 2M (146.55 MHz-FM). This time I have a 7 element 2M beam with me. May need help from a passing mobile to confirm the county!
Good luck to all. This is a fun contest. Driving may be a challenge.
Due to the forecast winter strom for the northern half of Wisconsin, the NE9U team has decided to bag our annual trip to my cabin in Florence County. If they get the projected foot of heavy wet snow, we might not get out to main roads until Monday! So we are going to do a more boring southerly route and stick to main roads that will hopefully be plowed and salted.
Here is our route in order:
We will try and stick about 2-3 KC below the advertised frequencies of: 3550, 7050, 14050, 3860, 7230, 14260
40 and 20 meters probably will go long early, so listen for us on 80 early and often!!!! We often go to 80 early and work a couple loud stations and then no one else is around. Watch the packet spots!
The cw skimmers will spot us on CW, but if you hear us on SSB, please spot.

Well, the latest models show the snow ending before the contest start, so we’ll head out and see what we can do. Tentatively, DOR, KEW, BRO, SHA, MEN, LAN, OCO, FOR, FLO, MRN. That will be subject to change based upon the weather and road conditions. Mostly CW. 20, 40, and 80.
We’ll beacon K8IR-7. CU Sunday.

Will go mobile tomorrow however we have decided to not have a set route this year. We're currently thinking about heading west from Appleton on highway 10 but beyond that we don't have plans.
We will have APRS running on my phone under K9TIT-9. We will have 2m, 440 FM, 20m, 40m. 75m SSB. If we have a random opening we will have a 6m antenna with so we won't rule out that band.
73 and talk to you all tomorrow,
Tim KC9FSH and Andy KC9IZF
Operating as K9TIT
Good Luck in the Contest!
