Default I will be traveling to Moab 2012

This year I am going to travel on 17M.
Last year the 20M was too noisy, to many nets, to many in-use frequencies.

I will test my 17M hamstick for best SWR and simply travel on that frequency. I will publish the frequency here after the weekend.

It will be a long drive, so I appreciate any contact I can get.

I'm leaving Thu 4/26 after work.

You can see me here:

If I am moving, I will be on the published 17M frequency.
On Sat I will be around Denver so my 2M will be monitoring freq Dave gave me last year.



Once I am at Moab and stationary, I will put up at times a 17M 1/4 wave using Buddipole components. I probably will not bather with a dipole. I have had great success with a full 1/4 and it is so easy to mount. I can do it in 5 minutes.



Hope to hear from you all

Rami
