Re: [wsjtgroup] K7BV October So.Cal Grid Trip - planning
FWIW, CM87, CM96, and CM97 are quite active, since they include well populated parts of the Bay Area with lots of hams. I wouldn't expect them to be rare. CM86 may be a different story -- a very small segment of it is occupied by the town of Santa Cruz, but most of it is water. K6EU tries to light it up as a rover when he has time, and has found a pretty nice QTH within the UCSC campus. Other spots he's scouted are pretty noisy. This one is easy to drive to, high and quiet, with a good look in almost every direction. If you're going to come over here, that's probably where you want to go.

We can presume that catching an Es opening will be a reeeal long shot now so I am working up a travel plan that has heavy emphasis on operating hours that could produce good meteor scatter opportunities.Below is a list of grids I believe some need for FFMA and/or for WSJT meteor scatter awards. However, the list was made up several weeks ago. I would appreciate a note from anyone who thinks they might be around for meteor scatter tries during the trip and what grids they need - I do not want to miss anyone.If there are other grids in the southern half of California that you would like me to try and cover, please let me know which ones.Planned Trip CoverageCM 86, 87, 94, 95, 96,97DM 03, 06, 08, 2373Dennis K7BV
