Boy, its been 3 years since my last ATNO – and since I only am trying to close out my DXCC Honor Roll #1 with 2 more to go – DXing has been off the radar for about a year – when I made DXCC on 160M.
3Y0I certainly has their work cut out for them – but I do like their perseverance – and wish them all the best. Being their West Coast Pilot has me back in the game a little and for a short while I suppose.
My plan is to try to work them from my QTH – I have a great 40M phased vertical array, and the SteppIR Urban Beam up 35′ – which should be good on 30 – 6M. I have on loan, Elliot, K6PFs Ameritron AL-80B – for 1KW (thanks Elliot!). I do have a 70′ vertical on 80M just for laughs – but what the heck, I’ll take a few weeks of “DX-citement” . . .
I do have a Plan B and Plan C – so lets see how this all goes.
