Default the Simplex Radio Check in Denver Thread

From time to time any of us need a simplex radio check.

Anyone able to jump on 146.460 this evening? Sometime between 7 & 10PM? If so, reply and post up from where.

I'm in Sloan's lake. I'll start with my Diamond folding antenna and after some contacts, switch to a 1/4 wave (I think I'm saying that right).

Once I set up APRS I'll want to check that too.

Why simplex? We have a tens of repeaters along the Front Range and you don't need to bother with a local sked.

For APRS you can check your call sign on aprs.fi

Because I want to. I know repeaters will pick it up.
I have not programmed the APRS yet and my radio can show me where others are.
If no one is interested, fine, but can't I try?

Unlikely that it would. This is the prediction of my home station's propagation using a mobile link. I just have an antenna in the attic, nothing special.

Missed this yesterday, but I'd be willing to holler at you tonight on simplex, if you still want to check out a rig. 19:00?
