If all goes according to plan, I will cap off my NPOTA activation operation
from Thomas Edison's Lab on SO-50. Activation is posted on the NPOTA page.
Activation from that site will take place this Friday, July 1st. I will be
on the HF bands from around 1630z until the SO-50 pass which will begin for
me in FN20 at approximately 1929z. I will be operating handheld (as I
always do) with my homebrew dual yagi & diplexer and VX-5R.
Not sure if it's appropriate for me to ask for others to 'clear the way',
but I would hope to get in as many NPOTA chasers as possible. If things get
hot & heavy (expected) I will likely skip giving my grid and only announce
it once or twice and focus on giving just the HP44 designator (as required
by NPOTA rules).
Hope to hear many of you!
