QSL: LOG OF THE WORLD OR SASE

Ham Member Lookups: 54509

 

2017 Alabama QSO Party

Jun 3rd (11AM CDST to 11PM CDST)

Will try to cover 9 counties this year.  As in the past I won't have a driver, so will drive to a county then operate, then to the next county and so forth. 

Here is a graphic of my intended route (subject to change).

I will start at 11AM in COVINGTON, then within a few minute should land in ESCAMBIA (approx 12PM), then CONECUH (approx 1PM), then to BULTER (approx 2:15PM), CRENSHAW (3:30PM), COFFEE (approx 5PM), DALE (approx 6:15PM), HOUSTON (approx  GENEVA (approx 7:10PM) and HOUSTON (approx 8:15PM).  I am guessing at these time, so bear with me on them. 

I will try to operate for 45 minutes in each counties (conditions will be the determining factors).  Operating 20m and 40m CW somewhere around 7040 and 14040.  Look up from there, if the band is crowded then I will move up. 

If I get home before the end of the contest period then I will try to get on 80M PH from my home station in GENEVA county.

----------------------------------------------------------------------

First of all thanks for all the QSOs if you worked me and if you didn't then perhaps next year!

Initial results and notes for next year:

Did cover all 9 counties, operating mobile with NO driver. 

1.  COVI            1608 - 1701         53 min         37Q      

2.  ESCA            1707 - 1757         50 min         34Q

3.  CONE            1918 - 2020         62 min         43Q

4.  BULT             2051 - 2126        35 min         23Q

5.  CREN            2158 - 2220        22 min         15Q

6.  COFF             2346 - 0018        32 min         31Q

7.  DALE            0037 - 0103        36 min         40Q

8.  HOUS            0121 - 0132        11 min         11Q

9.  GENE            0158 - 0207          9 min           9Q

TOTALS                              5 hours 10 min       232Q

Darkest got me in HOUS and GENE. 

Got to get a little book light to shine on the laptop keyboard.  Plus really ran out of steam in GENE just could not go any more! 

Really another antenna would be nice.  Not having to change resonators would remove some aggrevation and perhaps save some time.  Probably spent 30 min or more just changing resonators.
