Hello to all 222 ops....Wyatt-AC0RA, John-K1OR, and Paul-N2EME are
wanting to find out which states are still needed for 222 WAS by which
operators. They really want to make a "Still Needed" board for those of
us that are working to earn the 222 WAS award. Please forward your
information to one or all of them.
It has been a VERY long time since a 222 WAS has been awarded. There are
several of us that are trying to get going on that award. The above ops
have been working on a 222 portable station, a loaner if you will, that
can be sent around to various states to try to get those states on the
air. The question is, which states do we need??
I still need MT, NV, OR, WY in the west. I need KY in the central
US(should be easy via meteors or FT8). I need CT, DE, ME, RI, VT, and
MD in the east.
Dave-K1WHS reports that he is working on repairing his 222 antenna and
trying to get everything working. That may be our chance for ME.
A few rovers had promised to go to some of the states that I need, but
were cut off by the stupid virus thing. If you are a 222 op, let
everyone know. Get on the air. Work somebody. The more activity on
222, the better.
Thanks es 73 Marshall K5QE
