60 Meters APRS Test On Road Trip This Weekend
The much-delayed road trip to the east coast
is now finally on, including 60-meters APRS tests. I will be
departing at 0800 local (US EDT/1300 UTC) on Sunday 10 June.
The first day drive will be from the QTH in central Michigan to
Wilkes-Barre, Pennsylvania. On Monday 11 June, I will be
traveling from Wilkes-Barre to Philadelphia, PA; i.e. half day
trip. On Wednesday 13 June, I will make the return trip from
Philly to Michigan.
As in the previous tests, I will be
transmitting on 5403.50 KHz USB (US 60-meter "Channel 5") running
the Yaesu FT-891 into a 60-meter Hamstick. APRS beacons will
be on both:
At home, my TS-2000 with ladder-line-fed 105'
dipole, and my "Special Events" igate/webserver will be
running. Go to
and click the black link for "Special Events Server"
. . .
Will be listening from FM-17 in Virginia. Have a nice trip!
