Message: Arkansas mobile trip comments...I had a blast!! As we all know condx were and are pretty challenging. Although I know some people just couldn't hear me well on the bands I was able to pull in quite a few contacts (more than I expected). Thanks to N4RS, K0DEQ, and WD5CSK I was able to make at least one contact on 80 meters in all 50 counties I ran over the two day trip. After dark 80 CW was really hopping with about 20-30 contacts per county. I even got at least one contact on 75SSB in 90% of the counties. 40 meters was up and down with surprisingly low activity on 40 SSB. 30 was the best and most consistent band. 20 meters CW results were weak at best and SSB contacts almost nonexistent. 17 meters resulted in a couple of contacts in about 50% of the counties. Even 15 meters opened up for a handfull of counties in the early afternoon. Thanks for everyone who rode along and especially for those who spotted me when my self spots just weren't going thru in the mountains. 73!
