I'm interested in scheduling an HF Station Recon with some HF operators. Before I begin to invest in the gear I'd like to conduct some remote HF Station Recons. Doesn't need to be a lot of people, but perhaps at least 3-4 vehicles.
Rick, Perhaps we can arrange either before, during or immediately after some of the up coming ops. Otherwise if we meet somewhere in the middle between OC and Tem. I'm up to join some short 1/2 day outings.
Yes, that sounds good. I will be heading up to the Sierra OP Thusday night so we might have some time Friday.
I am also OK with getting together more locally. Let talk more next weekend. I will have my HF base station and HF mobile there.
For the November HF Recon, I won't be able to join in person, but I hope to have my RV rig up that weekend north of Joshua Tree.
Perhaps you can keep me updated on your frequency.,,
That will be great Donald. We can try to schedule comms. What bands can you cover? We will probably be on 40 or 80 meters.
Candy and I will not be able to go to this op, but I can hopefully participate from home.
I think as we get more involved with HF and long distance comms, even when you can't attend an op, you might be able to participate.
I will try and schedule some time just to make contact with those monitoring from home.
So, I've got the HF in the mobile and it's functional thanks to help from Rick Bean W8KO. Looking forward to this.
We should coordinate with the stations that cannot make it so we can test HF comms.
Rick, if Don will be in Joshua Tree is he only reachable by NVIS? Will a vertical (DX) antenna just skip over him if he's too close?
Chris, possibly. But we will just have to see. I think experimenting like this is a much fun as operating.
