2016 Idaho QSO Party

WW7D/M will be mixed mode, low power mobile for the 2016 run of the Idaho QSO party. This year, I’ll largely follow last year’s route. The first column of times is the scheduled county line crossing. The duration of a stop on a county line or in a single county is shown in bold:

Frequencies
I’ll be on phone and cw on 80 to 10 (whatever band is open) looking for a slot in the “mobile window”.

CW I generally try: 3.547, 7.027, 14.047, 21.047, 28.047 MHz

SSB is a little more difficult to nail down a frequency for a mobile, but here are my planned starting places: 3.857, 7.267, 14.337, 21.347, 28.487 MHz
