View Full Version : Try two -- up and back from Deerfield this weekend

10-14-2010, 10:08 AM
Plan on being on 40 and checking 7255 and 7258 regularly form 1300Z to about 1800Z (9 to 2 EDST).

Or...by previous arrangement some other frequency.

Or...will periodically call CQ between 7200 & 7225.

Or...another band?

Also...from the fester itself, Friday evening on 75. I'll be prowling the band, or calling as pre-arranged.

Will have my compter & can check the board for late possibilities.

AND...I might even be using my new-old TR-7. If I don't quickly find a connector or a mic at that hamfest, I didn't even try!!!

Hope to hear all the melodius voices from the Island!

Let us know -- either post, email or PM -- where on 75 you will call and at what time.

I will also try tomorrow in the morning on 7255, but 75 in the evening is often better choice.

It's 7:00 here in Manchester. Been to Deerfield, got all I need to get the TR-7 on the air, and should be on 75 about 10:00. Whether with the Drake or the Yaesu. (It's a bitch trying to find Heil mic pinouts...guess I have to take a w.a.g. at it!

So 10:00 around 3800 I'll call and listen -- we should be able to hook-up.

Leaving for dinner now. Hope to yak it up later!

I shall make the attempt.

I"m right on schedule..only 3 wires to solder...ahem IF I"ve got the connections right. I'll let you know if I'm going out earlier.

I think I'm done wirimg the mic and I'm headed out to try it. If it's good, I'll be on a while. If not, and I hear you calling I'll hook up the Yaesu. If I don't hear you, I've still got enough time to try again before 10:00.

Right now 3797 is pretty quiet.

Must be an awkward path between us, Albi. Ah, well...someday...

The attempts are fun, tho!!!

Yea, in Manchester, NH, the band was pretty quiet around 3800, except for my calls.

Piffle. One can make contact and move. While it may not be proper to hold extended QSOs in a DX window, using it for ANY purpose is quite within both the Rules and etiquette.
