Val-d'Or QC is colder and snowier than everywhere else I've been. This
is where the grid activations are really going to be weather dependent.
First of all, I'm afraid I have to sacrifice FN17. It's in the wrong
direction and the distances are too great. Tomorrow will be all about
FN09, FN18 and FN19. To be efficient, I will try to operate from grid
boundaries, specifically FN18/FN19 and then FN09/FN19 a little later.
Hopefully, I can park on the side of the highway without getting in the
way. If you look at it on a map, the highway (Hwy 109 north from
FN18at) connects civilization with...well, very very little! Traffic
should be very light.
I have a long drive to my next hotel tomorrow evening, so I am finishing
up with the AO-7's pass at 2021. I hope I have this right...AO-7 will
be in Mode B tomorrow? If not, there won't be much to do.
SO-50 isn't positioned well. The only opportunity we have tomorrow is
at 1305. I was hoping to do better for the FM-only ops. That's just
the way it is.

As always, keep following me on Twitter @ve3hls for updates...although,
once I'm up there I'll be well out of cellphone range.
