#NevadaMayhem part 1: Central Nevada (DM19) March 21, 2020

David, AD7DB, will venture deep into Central Nevada to specifically activate grid DM19 on Saturday March 21.  This is actually down a side road from “The Loneliest Road in America.”
Hardly any hams even live in that grid. It’s for sure that few ever activate it.  On the way there, Friday March 20, he will try to also activate some or all of:  DM06, DM16, DM07, DM08, DM17 and DM18.  Going home Sunday March 22, he will try to visit them again.  This will be on FM satellites only. Internet and cell coverage may be very poor up there, but for updates check Twitter: https:/twitter.com/ad7db
