NU0Q - Wednesday 08/08/2018 to Friday 08/24/2018 using SSB and CW
Summer vacation trip out west. Mostly CW, but can do SSB if helpful. The trip is mostly unplanned, but ultimately plan to get to western Montana and probably northern Idaho. I intend to run Crawford IA, Plymouth IA, and Chouteau MT to get credit for the last three for third time WBOW and also pick up some MG counties in MT. Please help with spotting and giving me MG contacts. Cell coverage will be non-existent in many areas. Trip will end in Kansas in time for the Kansas QSO Party, where I'll be operating as N0U on August 25-26.

KA2LHO - Sunday 08/19/2018 to Wednesday 08/22/2018 using SSB and CW
We have a trip to Key Largo planned for August 19 through 22. Our trip home will vary slightly from the trip down.

One of several purposes for this trip is to finish running my last 8 counties in Florida-a personal goal of mine to complete by the end of 2018. So please contact me even if you don't need the county.

The trip will vary slightly on the way down as we swing east from Osceola into Brevard which is a county I need to run but not on the normal route. Our route home will then pick up Okeechobee but not include Brevard.

Dates: Down-Aug 19, Back Aug 22

Times: Aug 19-We will be leaving after church on so it will be all afternoon and into the evening. Aug 22-not yet discussed but I would expect in the 8-9 am EDT time range.

Bands/Mode Plan: 20 ssb, 20 cw, 30 cw, 40 cw, 40 ssb as time permits in the county. This may be reversed as bands change later in the day. We expect all counties to be run on the fly.

NOTE: We will be activating several parks in Monroe County during our stay so if you don't get it on the way down there will be plenty of opportunities.

N0AC - Monday 08/20/2018 to Monday 08/20/2018 using CW Only
I will be QRV from my mobile station about 0100-0600z (7pm-midnight MDT Aug 19th) while my wife is doing an evening photo shoot. I will activate POTA K-1230 and Teller County, Co towards the early hours. We will then head East for her overnight shoot and I will activate grid square DM89, which has about 800 QSOs on the scoreboard, and is in Lincoln County, Co. I'll then move to grid square DN90, which is rare as it only has 36 QSOs on the scoreboard, and is in Dundy County, Ne. I will try 80-40-30-20m on the 8's. Please spot me as I don't have a cell phone.

K3IMC - Friday 08/24/2018 to Tuesday 08/28/2018 using SSB Only
The reason for the trip is to finish up Master's Gold for me. I need three counties to finish: Franklin, VA, Martin, NC and Queens, NY. I will be transmitting from various counties on my way to and from these counties. I will have capability for 40m, 30m, 20m, and 17 m., as well as both SSB and CW. If they are not wet, I plan to transmit mostly from county lines. My plan will be to transmit on 20 SSB, then 40 SSB and finally 20 CW. I will operate other frequencies and modes on request. The operating frequency for 40m will be on the SSB frequency. I will be transmitting my position via APRS as K3IMC-8. My cell number is 706-302-0725.

Thursday, Aug 23
I will be living my home shortly before 11 am and drive 335 miles to Concord, NC, without really putting out counties because of late start due to a doctor's appointment. I will be driving exclusively on I85. If you really need a county on this route, I will try to put it out for you.

This morning I will be touring ARRL Headquarter. With luck, I will transmit from W1AW as well as using my call, which is in Hartford County, CT. I will try to post my operating frequencies if you want to work W1aw. I will be leaving W1AW in the afternoon, and start the return trip. I will attempt to transmit from counties that I pass through depending on road conditions and traffic. No promises!

CT: New Haven, Fairfield
NY: Putnam, Westchester, Rockland

Wednesday, Aug 29 and Thursday, Aug 30
I have 900 miles to drive home, and it is Labor Day Weekend. I plan to drive hard and fast on interstates via I81, I77, and I85. I do not plan on stopping to put about any counties. If you really need a county along my route, I try to get it for you.

Special Note: The highlighted counties are the counties I really need to work some one good for Master's Gold so I can claim the county for my award. Any help would be appreciated.
