Hello to all interested in the 222 band.....I still
several states for 222 WAS. I have grouped them into two
"groups"....east and west from me.
The east group consists of KY, WI, MD, DE, ME, RI, VT,
and CT. Of this group, KY and WI could easily be worked
via meteor scatter, IF I can find someone to run with in
those states. So if you know someone that might help,
please try to get us together. MD and DE are also
workable from here on meteors, but those states are in
the "long haul" category. In other words, they are both
at almost maximum distances. The rest are probably
reachable via EME.
The western group consists of NV, MT, OR, WA, and WY.
Of course, there is always HI, but everyone is just
waiting for Bill-ND0B to move there with his Lunar-Links
and FB antennas. None of he above states are reachable
via meteor scatter, so EME will have to be used.
On meteor scatter, I am running 2 x 23el at 135ft and
about 1300W. On 222 EME, I am running 8 x 222XP40s with
full steering and a tower mounted cavity preamp. In the
last week, I have worked two new states....UT thanks
Mike-K7ULS and MN thanks Mike-W0VTT and AC0RA-Wyatt.
If anyone can help me with my 222 WAS, please contact
me. You don't have to have elevation to work me, just a
good tropo station with some power. We can run on your
rising moon(stations to the west of me) or your setting
moon(stations to the east of me).
David-N9HF is also trying hard to finish out his 222
WAS, so if you are active on 222 you might contact him to
see if he needs your state.
