Around noon (EDT) today, I’ll start my short journey to the W4DXCC conference in Sevierville, TN.
En route, I’ll pass through three National Parks: the Blue Ridge Parkway, The Appalachian National Scenic Trail and the Great Smoky Mountains National Park. It’s a beautiful drive and the weather appears to be near-ideal–clear skies.
This also affords me the opportunity to activate two “two-fers” for the National Parks On The Air (NPOTA):
- Blue Ridge Parkway and Great Smoky Mountains Park (PK01 & NP26)
- Appalachian Trail and Great Smoky Mountains Park (NP26 & TR01)
I’ll only get credit for three activations, but chasers will have a better opportunity to snag two park entities in one QSO.
I plan to activate the PK01 & NP26 two-fer starting around 17:00 UTC, then the NP26 & TR01 two-fer starting around 19:15 UTC. Look for me on 14,286 and 7,286 +/- 6 kHz.
SWLs: please comment if you happen to hear me at your location!
On the way back from the conference, Sunday morning, I plan to activate the same sites once again (weather permitting).
