N4UP - Tuesday 05/02/2017 to Friday 05/05/2017 using SSB and CW

Four-Day Trip to West Virginia and Eastern Kentucky.

The second of two trips to finish running West Virginia. The plan is 80m CW, 40m CW, 30m CW, 20m CW, then either 40m SSB or 20m SSB. If 40m SSB has no clear frequency, will try 20m SSB. If 80m CW is not favorable, we may try 17m instead. The preference is CW, but will add SSB as needed.

We will check texts at every stop ( 703.801.7095 ). Text only, please no voice calls or voice mail ). We can only check email at night from the hotel.

Counties in bold are early morning counties. For each of those counties we will tend to make non-CH contacts, one on CW and one on SSB, unless we know someone needs it.

The following dates and schedule are tentative.

Tuesday May 2 Starting around 11:30 am EDT 1530 UTC

West Virginia --- Nicholas, Clay, Roane, Calhoun, Braxton, Gilmer, and Lewis
