-----------------------------------------------------------------

Notes on frequencies: For convenience (& my short term memory!!), 18.157.5 MHz. will be my initial location especially while mobile. Depending upon propagation and band conditions, I will try to follow the HFPack clock - for 10-15-17-20 while portable. Also, I might try some NVIS portable on 40m. while in Tillamook if anyone is interested - a new challenge for me.

I AM OPEN TO ANY SUGGESTIONS RE OPERATING TIMES AND FREQUENCIES

If available, I would be happy to pre-arrange a schedule and would appreciate anyone contacting me post it on HFPack and/or Live Wire groups. I will have e-mail accessibility pre 5/17 and some availability during trek.(w2emt@arrl.net)
