I will be a rover this contest on 50-3456 MHz + 10G and Laser. My current plan is to start in FN22xp pointing east and then work my way back west in the evening, hitting FN23 and FN12 via thruway travel (FM and 2m/70cm SSB). If time permits I will setup in FN13gb later in the evening. Sunday I will start in FN02wv for a few hours, then proceed to FN03wa for a few hours.This should leave a couple of hours to bounce around FN13 and FN12 before the Rover Blitz around dinner. Equipment condition and my own personal energy will dictate what I do from here. Options from most likely to least likely are 1) My driveway FN13ge 2) Webster Park FN13gg or 3) Erie PA (EN91/EN92). This schedule may change as other rovers post their plans and I try to maximize our efforts.

I just discovered a problem with this plan.FN22xp is about 190 miles away from the club territory and in order to count toward club credit, I must be within 175 miles. I am reconsidering something closer. FN23 - 100 cows ??

You may want to try FN23oa near Little Falls, NY. I went there once. I need to look it up in my book

2000 FN13gb

Sunday

0800 FN02wv
1100 FN12dt
