For the AZ QSO party trip, the weather is looking like it will be AWESOME. Looks like no rain in the forecast, Highs near mid 70’s, lows near mid 40’s.
As of right now there are no fire restrictions.
Communications plan is, 446.050 simplex frequency in and near the campground. Rimlink repeater for communications outside the campground.
Communications plan for the weekend will be, 20 meter and 40 Meter PSK31, with maybe a 10 meter during the morning or day if the band is open. 10, 20, and 40 meter SSB. Early morning hours might allow us to do some 12 meter activity as individuals, but not for the QSO party. We will try to announce our frequency as much as possible. If you hear us, please spot us.
We will be using the N3FJP software to handle our logging.

Video and Audio will be recorded throughout the event, with hopes to get a YouTube video up after the trip.
There is a $10 fee to camp at the campground with automated machines that take a credit card. So be prepared to pay for your site. The official word is: The Tonto Daily Pass, Discovery Passes, and Interagency Passes are no longer accepted as a “camping” pass for these sites.
