Subject: 3 to go for my 2nd Star (More)

Message: Ray, KD2HEA, came on 40M this morning and gave me Essex, NY.. Thanks, Ray! I have 3 counties left to finish it up my 2nd Star. 1) Sheridan, MT - Only a handful of operators in the county, no one has responded to emails or letters sent, yet 2) Petroleum, MT - No amateur operators listed for this county....bummer! 3) Clark, ID - 2 operators listed, one's license is about to expire. Letter sent to the other, but no response as of yet. Therefore, since I am now retired and the advanced weather forecast for that area of the country looks decent for the end of next week, I am planning a trip starting on Thursday, the 10th. Looks like about about a 3100 mile round trip. Will be taking my son, KDØTWY, with me who holds technician privileges in case band conditions are so poor I can't hear anyone on 20, 40 or 80 meters. Looks like self-credit is the way to go... My wife thinks I'm crazy, well what can I say... I think she already knew this when she married me. If the weather holds, watch for my upcoming trip to be posted. If by chance I get an email from someone in Sheridan, or Clark counties, willing to come on and help me out, I will probably shorten my trip. Butch WYØA
