Pete, N6ZE, plans a daytime 3 grid rove on Saturday, 21January2017, during the ARRL VHF Contest. At 11AM PST, Pete & Woodie, KJ6VZC, plan to begin in Ventura, CA (DM04); travel up US-101 past Santa Barbara to Grid CM94 for some limited operating . CM94 ops will be sometime about noon-time. We then plan to travel on CA-1 (PCH) Southward along the coast to Santa Monica (DM03) & Palos Verdes; and thence back to Ventura & Thousand Oaks by approximately 1800 PST.
We plan to use vertical antennas for (6m) SSB 50.125 /CW/FM 52.525; (2m) SSB 144.200/CW/FM 146.52/146.55; (135cm) 223.5 MHz FM; (70cm) SSB/CW 432.1/446.0 FM; & (33cm) 902.1 & 927.5 MHz FM.
We will try to specifically monitor FM frequencies for minutes 00 - 05 of each hour.
(IF we operate on Sunday, we hope to also use 23 cm from the Thousand Oaks area only)
The weather forecast for Saturday is decent; for Sunday, weather will be unsuitable for much roving!
The contest begins at 1100AM PST, Saturday, and ends at 8:00PM PST, Sunday.
We will occasionally check n6ze(a)aol.com for schedule requests.
Good Luck to al.
