    Practice HF Mobile Net Control Station Deployments

    We will be practicing setting up multiple net control stations from 8AM to 2PM approx.

    Stations on the air will be in northern California and Temecula California.

    We will be preparing over the net 6 months for our Dual Base Camp op in Nov. 10th, 2018. Stations will have their own nav-comm teams during the November operation and will be intentionally required to use NVIS (near vertical incident skywave).

    The camping near Brown's Camp in the Turtle Mountains was absolutely beautiful. This area is so unique. The op included navigating to caches around the lost arch area and the use of mesh network between net control and the rendezvous point.

    W8KO set up HF communications our of the back of his homemade trailer (below).

    This year was a whole lot cooler than usual. Only one medivac helo at our stage 3, but it was one of our ham radio volunteers who was not feeling well. The medical team took no chances and called in the bird.

    A few pictures of this operation:

    Dear Operators,

    This is our new blog, and we hope you will check in periodically to see what is new about past trips, upcoming trips, and changes in Land Ops.  We had a busy January and February, with a trip to Quartzite Arizona and the Quartzfest, where we gave a presentation to about 70 ham operators on our group, and the next day staged 3 mini-ops for the group.  In February, we held our overland trip from Barstow to The Trona Pinnacles, including a great dinner at the Idle Spurs Steakhouse in Barstow.
