NO5W 2010 OKQP Route

Colin-KU5B, Gary-W5ZL, and I are planning to be active again this year in the Oklahoma QSO Party running a multi-two out of my 2002 Pathfinder covering about thirty-six counties from southwestern to northeastern Oklahoma. Starting out in Ardmore we'll travel west to cover all of the counties south of I-40 and west of I-35 and once we reach I-40 we'll swing back east through Oklahoma City and up to Stillwater for the evening. Then on Sunday we'll go north and east as far as Tulsa before turning back south and, if the timing is right, ending up in Love with about 15 minutes remaining in the party. 

As in the past we will focus on 20m and 40m CW and SSB. We do plan to also have 15m capability and plan to hit it harder than we have done in the past since things have been picking up lately on that band. We'll also have 80m capability and will give that band a try after the sunsets. Hope to see you in our 2010 Oklahoma QSO Party log. Here's a list of our counties in the order we plan to cover them.

*If we are on schedule on Saturday we will continue on up I-35 to spend about 15 minutes in Noble and, in that case, may not devote much time to Noble on Sunday if we get an early start.
