Its finally here, Time to hit the road!!!....

The 6M KW Rover departs DM09nm for points East 
6AM Monday June 11th 2012.

A total of 56 grids will be traversed with efforts to stop
and setp the yagi in key grids needed by the vehicle's
owner - WX7M. 

My stop in DL88 it a quick stop to work the man who 
setup this trip to begin with. It is in no way in competition
with the fine effort being put forth by Marshal and his
highly dedicated group. I hope to be home in time to work 
them myself as I need these grids as well. 

As we are traveling a rather long distance over many days
I didnt even try and guess at exact times per each grid
so please don't ask.

This is 6M only to help those with their FFMA awards.

Route is as follows...

Here is a list of the grids sorted by Field,





(1) I plan to CQ 50.125 CW/SSB and move to 
50.150 when activity demands it.

(2) I Plan to Use FSK441A when Mobile into
a KB6KQ Loop on the rear corner of the truck. 
CQing 50.260 1st & note my rcv frequency
in that message (Usually 50.255). Once I hear
Responses on my Rcv freq, I switch all further
Transmissions to there until activity dies, then resume
the split operation of CQ and announce where I 
am Listening. I will always be transmitting on the
1st sequence....

(3) WX7M, W7GJ, KU7Z, KC6ZWT, W6OMF,
and a few others know my cell # and can pass info
to me if needed.
