Hello friends:

I will be heading to Northern Maine into the wilderness north of Moose head lake and this side of Quebec Thursday [October 7] AM early.  (7-8 hr drive).

I am hoping to activate parks that have never been activated.  Might not even be able to spot myself due to no wifi or cell coverage.  I am hoping to operate about 14059 CW (top of the hour) or 14340 SSB (30 minutes past the hour) any time after 1500 UTC to 0000 UTC……….. From 0000 – 1400 UTC 7059kc CW top of the hour and 7249kc SSB 30 minutes after the hour.

Currently AK9A, WA!MAD, K0KLB & Wi1G will be trying their best to help on freq. If anyone can hear me and spot me on the POTA site it would be greatly appreciated.

Possible parks will be :

  • Moxie Falls Property State Preserve.             K-8444
  • Lily Bay State Park                                          K-2394
  • Seboomook Lake Property State Preserve     K-8443
  • St. John Pond Ecological Reserve                  K-9171
  • Lobster Lake Property State Preserve    K-8442

APRS will be on for tracking:
