W9FZ/R Plans for This Evening’s 2m Sprint + WIVUCH County Activations

  IF YOU ARE LOOKING FOR TONIGHT’S 2M FALL SPRINT INFO, IT’S TWO POSTS DOWN THIS PAGE. 
  Heads-up everyone for enhanced activity tonight, in conjunction with the Fall 2m Sprint. 

Bruce, W9FZ will be going out tonight:
“I’m going to activate 3 (WIVUCH) counties on Monday night.   One will be before the sprint and 2 during the sprint.   Yeah, I know it lengthens the evening a bit, but I hope some ops–even if not county hunting will give me some activity from the early county.

Marquette county at 1800-1830 (central time) 144.190   I’ll carry those who want other bands confirmed to other bands.  I’ll be at either EN53jt near Montello or EN53lw near Westfield.

Then in the sprint, I’ll start EN53ls near Markesan for Green Lake County.   I’ll start as soon after the 1900L start time as I can get there.  While there, I’ll gladly carry guys to other bands who want it.   Just give me a hint you’d like to try another band.  I’ll stay on 144.190 or drift even further down to 144.180 for the remainder of the sprint.

I’ll knock off around 2030 (Local)  and drive to Wood County EN54dg SE of Wisc Rapids.  I hope to be on from there around 2115L or sooner.  Same drill on the other bands.

I may do an occasional CQ while enroute to the new grid because I’ll be pointing WNW towards MSP.
I’ll be chirping APRS on http://aprs.fi/?call=w9fz-15

Should be a fun sprint if Hepburn’s tropo forecast is correct.
