                                              2016 AQP Jun 4th, CDT 11:00AM until 11:00PM Saturday

                                                                      Click the linkabove for Information and Rules

I will be operating mobile in the following counties

1.  Clarke

2.  Choctaw

3.  Washington

4.  Monroe

5.  Escambia

6.  Conecuh

7.  Butler

8.  Crenshaw

9.  Covington

10.  Coffee (bonus if I have time)

11.  Dale (bonus if I have time)

12.  Geneva (this is my home county)

Here is the route that I will actually travel.   I will take off very early Saturday morning and travel to Coffeeville, AL, about 190 miles and hope to be there before the start of the AQP.   I will work Clarke, Choctaw and Washington counties, then move over to Monroeville for Monroe county.  Next I will go to I-65 and go to Escambia county, then back track a bit to Evergreen for Conecuh county and Greenville for Butler county.   Next will be Brantley in Crenshaw County and then down to Opp for Covington County.   From here I will go to Enterprise for Coffee county and then down to Clayhatchee for Dale County.  Finally I will land in Hartford for Geneva County.   Actually cover more than 250+ plus miles.

Here is a map of the trip starting with Coffeeville to Fadette (my home).

This will be about a 450 miles round trip from Fadette to Coffeeville and back.  The driving time from Coffeeville to Fadette is about 6+ hours.  So my operating time will be limited to 6 hours.  Actually it will take over 4 hours just to get to Coffeeville from my home!

Will be operating CW on 20m (somewhere around 14036) and 40m (around 7036) in each county, if these frequencies are busy then I will move around as necessary.  Even though 40m may be thin during the early afternoon hours, I will try there for atleast 15 minute or until I can no longer hear any stations, then I will move to 20m.  I am a bit uncertain about 80m, the noise has been so great down here in South Alabama, but I will see what happens. 

Here is a picture of the mobile, that consist of a 1999 Chevrolet Silverado, with 390k miles.   The radio is a Kenwood TS-50 with the 500hz CW filter (backup will be a IC-706), antennas are the Hustler Resonators for 20m, 40m, and 80m.  Will computer log with Writelog an old laptop and use a W3YY interface for CW.  I always take a spare battery to have a backup for the car's battery.

Looking forward to working as many of you as I can.
