WB0TEV 2011 TXQP Route

    Assisted by KK5MR WB0TEV plans to be QRV in the 2011 Texas QSO party from the following 3 dozen or so counties. Unlike previous years when WB0TEV/M was 99-100% SSB, this year I plan on doing a modest amount of CW as well. My Morse skills are not what they used to be (but getting better), so will do mostly S&P on 40 CW but for counties where it looks like I’m the only source for CW I may get bold and call CQ.

    If the neighborhood around X.040 is too crowded I might call on my “secret” backwater frequencies of 7.066/14.066 MHz. Mid-day I may try 10m (28.410) at 10 minutes past the hour and 15m (21.315) at 15 minutes past the hour. Others are encouraged to try this “10 at 10” and “15 at 15” paradigm to spark successful activity on those bands.

    Will be QRT much of 2100-2300Z Saturday for supper and a visit with my kids at LeTourneau University in Longview before doing a loop to the south before returning to Longview from whence we will begin again Sunday AM. May get on either 80m CW or 75m SSB during the backtrack from San Augustine/Shelby to Gregg in the closing minutes Saturday, but will likely stay on 40m/20m if they stay productive.

    We should be squawking WB0TEV-10 on APRS. Will try to watch http://ch.w6rk.com for spots and expect to be spotted there myself as well.

I expect to actually run ahead of this time line especially early on. If we fall significantly behind schedule,
some (*) counties may be dropped. Hope to spend the last 15-30 minutes Sunday at the intersection of
