Re: Alaskan grid squares



I was on one AO-51 pass from near Talkeetna(sp?) on Thursday afternoon, with 
only a few other stations on. I'll be at the BBQ kicking off the hamfest 
tomorrow evening, and will try to be on the air, but I'll tell ya...the 
mountains are making the low parts of the passes very difficult.
