  Once again we will be heading up to Northeastern Minnesota in conjunction 
with the June VHF contest, with the intent to activate grid  EN48oc for those 
in pursuit of the Fred Fish Memorial Award on six meters. Our plans are similar 
to that of past years, with a focus on 6 meters and 2 meters, although we may 
have time to try some HF, Satellite and EME operations during non VHF contest 
hours.  Our call being used in that time frame will be a special event call 
W0W. Announcement Vince (K0SIX), Maria (K0MPP), John  (WA0VPJ), Brad (KB0HNN), 
Dave (NI0W) and Rick (N0VCF) will activate EN48 from  June 11th through June 
15th. We will be operating from a cabin located on  Gunflint Lake and only a 
stone's throw away from Canada. Our operation will  run with the 2015 ARRL June 
VHF Contest.

  We will utilize a 7-element (6M7JHV) yagi on 6m and a 17-element (2M5WL) on  
2m, both mounted on 20-foot temporary masts. We will be running Elecraft K3's  
and amplifiers which should provide at least 500 watts of power on 6m and  350w 
on 2m. We will have a station on 6m and 2m continuously.

  Tentative frequencies on 6m are 50.148 SSB/CW and 50.248 FSK441. On  
2m,144.208 SSB/CW and 144.148 FSK441. We will be sending on the 1st period 
(0-30  seconds) during FSK441 runs. Please spot us when heard.

  We will not have access to the internet or cellular phone service. Please  
schedule yourself for meteor skeds on the public Google spreadsheet. We will  
print a copy before departing on June 11th.

  Brad's (KB0HNN) vehicle will have APRS and chirping KB0HNN-12 during our trip 
 north. You can follow us at http://aprs.fi/.

  Thanks for your time and remember to keep your antennas north! 
See www.k0six.com/w0w/ for more information and past results.

Please schedule yourself for meteor skeds on the public Google spreadsheet  
using the link above. Our meteor scatter activity will primarily be on  FSK441a 
using the WSJT software. You  may also schedule periods using SSB, CW, or JT65 
modes. We will use 50.248/144.148  for WSJT modes and 50.148/144.208 for CW and 
SSB. We will print a copy of the  spreadsheet before departing on June 11th.
