11/17/2007 Random Hour Summary
- All we need is another acronym but... I get a number of reports along
the line of "tried not complete with" or "part way with " so I propose
using 'TNC' in the summaries for them tried, not complete. We don't
mean 'terminal node controller' - hi.

- Hello all,A group of us out here in the west are planning on activating a few grid squares on MS and EME this coming season.We will be on active on 6 and 2 meters with preamps, big antennas and 1 Kw amplifiers.We are thinking of doing a test run in the spring from perhaps DM57 but this isn't chiseled in stone.There are States like NE and ND that haven't been active in quite sometime so we are looking at activating them if there is enough interest.We need some input though from all of you so we can plan a productive road trip later on.What grids/States are on your most wanted list?Respond to the list so others will know of your needs.There doesn't seem to be a list anywhere so all of your responses will be put into a database that can perhaps be posted on a website at a later date.That would be a big help to other rovers planning trips.The group of "Super 7's" by the way will be Jim W60UU, Jim KS7S, Doug K7IP and Barry VE3CDX/W7Thanks in advance!73,The Super 7's Team
- Barry, I have attached a copy of the Six Meter Final Grid report of a
survey of the most needed grids that was conducted last fall. Not sure
if it will make it out to the reflector , hopefully you will get it, and
you can at least share it with the Super 7's Team. It should give you
an idea what is needed from the entire USA 6 meter op's perspective.
There are a number of "HOT" needed grids out west here. These reflect a
number of the ones that I could use, and many others, on six as well.
Two meter QSO's from these same grids would be greatly appreciated by
all as well. Not to mention 222 and 432 Mhz QSO's. I am getting ahead
of myself as well now. Once you guys get your feet on the ground and
find that you have time and may need equipment for other bands, please
do not hesitate to ask both the reflector and myself.
