W8JVP and KE8BSV are going on a POTA tour!

Club member and Member at Large, Ken Irish (W8JVP) and son Dennis (KE8BSV) will be taking a tour of National Parks, Monuments and Memorials, west of the Mississippi and activating POTA references along the way. Their tour starts May 17, 2022 and will go for 26 days into mid June. 

They’ll be living and working in a 29 ft motorhome and their equipment will consist of an ICOM 7100 and a 36ft vertical telescoping mast mounted on the back of the motorhome as well as a backup OCFD 40 meter dipole. For local comms they’ll be using a Comet UHV mobile antenna (20/40 6 Meter and 2 M capable ). 

They’ll be on the lookout for local hams  on 40 and 20 meters, so let’s help them get their contact quotas for activations!  Keep your eyes on the POTA spotting page at https://pota.app/#/  for their call signs and help them activate! 

Their itinerary can be found below.
