I could make plans. I don't have any right now.
I have a little Kenwood TS-50 that travels well.

Going to scout a few locations this weekend. Thinking Lamartine or Mill Creek. Any input would be appreciated.

1) Tune your HT to a local repeater and ask where the nearest Field day site with a GOTA (get on the air) station is and what the site's "talk-in freq" is.

2) Tune to the talk-in freq in your HT and get directions to the site.

3) Go to the site and ask the site mgr what their GOTA procedure is (you'll usu be assigned a "Coach" and time slot).

4) Get on a REAL radio and start making contacts.

*WARNING* this activity is highly addictive. You'll soon be spending a lot of $$ at HRO.

Didn't get up around Empire. Everything that i checked out down south of here is or will be in the path of the Springer fire.

Are you going to get a chance to get out this weekend?

TS-50 is a great rig. Are you planning on coming out? If so, just pack your radio, a cooler and a tent and as soon as Dave chimes in we can pick a spot and head out.
