We will have our normal HF stations, 2 X TS590s, 3 element tribander and dipoles. Last year we came in 11th in the 2A category with 2200 QSOs.
I am happy to announce that this year we will make a big VHF effort!!! We would love to contact as many local VHF guys as possible.

Our planned activity:
We will be on 2 meters with a 14 element Yagi and 150 watts, calling CQ on 144.200 SSB ( with a voice keyer so we don’t lose our voice). We can also make FM contacts on 2 mtrs.
We will be on for all of the satellite passes, the XW2 birds look good.
We will be on 6 meters calling CQ on 50.125 - 3 element beam and 100 watts
We also have 432 mhz – if anyone wants to try. 5 elements and 50 watts.
And- we are also going to try EME ! We can phase two 14 element Yagis together and run 150 watts. It will be tough to make a QSO, but if some of the big gun European EME guys are on, it should be possible. I have a lot of EME experience, so we are hopeful !
