WB0TEV 2012 TXQP Route
This year WBØTEV/M will be operating SSB only. The plan is
to activate 35 counties but I may have to cut some corners and drop a
few if I get too far behind schedule. Unlike previous years when I have
been assisted by KK5MR, I may be traveling solo as Mark may well be
unavailable this year. So, unless I rig up a means of recording for
post contest playback and log transcription, I may be in drive, stop,
operate, drive mode.
I'll be mostly on 20m but time permitting will try and get on 40m
briefly from each county to make these counties available for fellow
Texans and those too close for 20m. I may tend to gravitate to freqs
ending in "6" if QRM so permits. On occasion I'll try 15m and even 10m
if they look promising. On 15m check around 21.336, 28.336 on 10m. On
40m the 50 kHz BW of the Hustler vertical will be set to cover
7200-7250, I'll aim first for 7236 if its available. On 20m I plan on
bouncing between the county hunter's net on 14.336 when they can
accommodate me an in the typical 14250-14275 alley (or somewhat
I'll be most grateful to all who spot me on ch.w6rk.com to drive more
QSO's my way. The county list (subject to revision) and
guesstimated time of entry for each is listed below. I plan to start
Saturday AM at the tri-county intersection of Grayson, Collin and
Fannin counties. Those with an * are the ones most likely to be omitted
if I fall too far behind schedule.
I'll likely be QRT 2230-2330 Saturday for a stop in Longview to visit
my kids at college.
CU on the radio!
