Adventures in ham radio

WW7D/R will be active for the 2014 ARRL UHF Contest in the Pacific Northwest. I’ll be on the following bands/modes:

  • 222.1 MHz SSB/CW at 100 W
  • 223.5 MHz FM at 50 W
  • 432.1 MHz SSB/CW at 100 W
  • 446 MHz FM at 20 W
  • 903.1 MHz SSB/CW at 40 W
  • 927.5 MHz FM at 15 W
  • 1296.1 MHz SSB/CW at 18 W
  • 1294 MHz FM at 1 W

I’ll nearly continuously monitor all these calling frequencies except for 1296.1 MHz and 903.1 (they share an IF rig, so one at a time). At fixed locations, a 25′ mast will be deployed with yagis. Smaller (and lower) yagis will be used in motion.

Here is the schedule of stops (times in PDT):

Saturday

  • CN98cb, Mt. Pilchuck (2970′): 11:00 AM to 12:15 PM
  • CN88xa, Lake Stevens, WA (400′): 01:25 PM to 02:25 PM

  1. […] It was quite similar to my 2013 route but using a different spot near Mt. Pilchuck in CN98, one stop at a new location in CN87, a different CN97 stop, and slightly different stops in CN86 and CN96. I posted the schedule here. […]
