News flash!! Starting Monday I will be activating Cuyahoga Valley National Park National Parks on the Air Unit NP14. My work is taking me to the Cleveland Area, so rather than shack up in the standard Hampton Inn, Holiday Inn, etc. I found alternative arrangements - this means that I'll be staying inside the park.
During the day I'll be working, so my plan is to be on the air every night, from the time I get back into the park after my work day, until sleep knocks at my door. I plan on eating my dinner between contacts, so I'll only stop for a couple hours each evening when I pause for nightly Facetime chat with my family back at home, and to take care of any work related odds and ends that just can't wait.
The plan is to be on at least 40 meters and 20 meters, but I'll have the capability for everything from 80 meters through 6. If I do anything other than 40 and 20, 80 would be the most likely candidate, followed by "maybe" 6 meters in the early mornings before I have to head out (if I didn't stay up too late the night before...). With any luck I'll have more success than I did the last time I was at Cuyahoga. You can read about that here.
Anyway, that's it for now - watch for updates here on my blog and on the NPOTA Facebook group on the 7th, 8th, and 9th of November, and we'll see how much of a dent I can help to make towards 1 million QSO's for NPOTA!

Welcome to my Ham Radio Blog! This blog was started primarily to share my two concurrent shack builds - my mobile station and my home station. Over time, this has grown to include sharing about my operations, and general radio-related thoughts that I have as a newer operator.
Proving that hams do indeed still build stuff!
100 Watts and Wire is an awesome community, based around an excellent podcast.
