NO5W 2009 OKQP Route

Gary (W5ZL), Colin (KU5B) and I plan to be active again in the 2009 Oklahoma QSO Party as a multi-two mobile. We'll be operating two stations, and sharing the driving and operating duties. Our route is looking like it has some large counties so in those counties we plan to use both CW and SSB with initial focus on CW. We'll have capability on 80, 40, 20, 15, and 10 but expect 40/20 to be the money bands. Here are the counties in order of coverage. Hope we work you in the 2009 Oklahoma QSO Party.



Carter[1] Jefferson Stephens Grady Caddo
Comanche Cotton Tillman Jackson Greer
Kiowa[1] Greer Harmon Beckham RogerMills[1]
Beckman Washita Custer Dewey Woodward[1]
Major Woods Alfalfa Grant Kay[3]
Noble[3] Garfield[2] Kingfisher Blaine Canadian
Oklahoma Cleveland[1] Oklahoma Pottawatomie Pontotoc
McClain Garvin Murray Carter Johnston[3]
Marshall[3] Bryan[3] Marshall[3] Love
1. Time in these counties will be 15 minutes or less
2. Depending on time Garfield will be last on Saturday, or first on Sunday, or both.
3. Kay and Noble on Saturday are time permitting as are Johnston, Marshall, Bryan on Sunday.
4. We intend to operate all 18 hours of the party. So, for example, if we happen to arrive in Grant just north of Garfiled with an hour or so left we likely will loop on east through Kay and Noble. Similarly on Sunday if we see there is time we might add Bryan between Marshall and Love.

Added 26-Mar-09: We executed the above plan with the exception of Kay and Noble which had to be bypassed due to time limitations brought on by a closed road whose detour added too much time. More details about our trip and the results may be found on our 2009 OK QP 3830 Report.
