We need 8-12 volunteers,
which should allow for at least 2 ham/volunteers per rest
stop. Plus at least 1 SAG per route. I must also include
the following caveats:
1) That all rest stops must have the means to setup a temp
station that can operate on UHF (440 simplex) and place an
antenna 12 ft. high..
2) That SAGs have UHF (440 simplex) capability from their
3) 800 mhz radios will also be provided and utilized to promote
training and discipline on using tactical (non-ham) identifiers.
Hams will be asked to operate on an a predetermined 800 mhz
conventional repeater when possible.

Have you looked at the EMCOMM Challenge Award offered in
this year's North Carolina QSO Party?
Please see: http://ncqsoparty.org/index.php?id=rules
We know that the qualifications for this award can be a
little confusing, here are the highlights:
1 - This is a tag-on award and is not a category.
2 - One emergency minded person pre-registers and becomes
the contact for his/her team.
3 - The contact person solicits individuals or clubs that
are or will be operating in one of the NCQP categories for
a county in the chosen emergency management area. (mobiles
or expeditions that will operate across area boundaries
cannot be used)
4 - When the individual or club submits their log they will
enter the team name in the Club field of their Cabrillo
file.(one team name only)
5 - Scores of the individual logs will be added together
to form total points for this award.
6 - When a winner is chosen the contact person will receive
the award and can share between participants of the group.
As to date we have not received any pre-registrations. (see
rules page linked above)
This is a great opportunity to test portability, preparedness
and for leaders to learn more about their resources.
As part of the digital operations W4DW and NC4QP will include
MT63-1K. Stay tuned for possible schedules.
Tnx es 73,
