Next weekend, in fact, January 28th – 29th, 1900 UTC to 1859 UTC.
Right now, I am planning on operating from Wildcat Mountain State Park 1900 to 2200 UTC Saturday and 1400 to 1859 on Sunday. This park is also K-1480, I’m hoping the WFD rules will allow me to do a POTA activation simultaneously; gotta love a two-fer!
I will post more as the event approaches; please leave a comment if you will be operating WFD too, but remember that WFD rules prohibit pre-arranging of contacts before the event, so let’s not do that.
Thanks for stopping to look at driftlessqrp.com today, please come to visit again!
UPDATE, January 22nd: registered my site at Wildcat Mountain on the WFD website.
UPDATE, January 23rd: I have my operation posted on the POTA scheduled activations page, where I see about 6 other people who will be combining WFD & POTA. I had a sudden thought over breakfast today about doing a three-fer with SOTA, but unfortunately Wildcat Mountain is not on the SOTA list; I will investigate what is required to get a summit on that list, but that probably won’t happen by Saturday morning.
2/4/23, update re: Wildcat Mountain and SOTA – as I was compiling the information needed to support a request to add a summit to the SOTA list I figured out the reason that Wildcat Mountain was not listed; the key word is “prominence”. Look up a definition if you want precision, I will just summarize by saying that it does not sufficiently stand out from the surrounding terrain to qualify under SOTA rules.
