2015 AQP

2015 County Activity

The goal is to activate all Alabama counties!!

If you are planning on operating, as a fixed station, mobile or an individual station from an Alabama County(ies), please let me know your callsign, category, mode, what county(ies) and when you will be operating, by sending email to me. Thanks!

Updated May 31st, 2015

County Activity (Includes all stations thus far):
  • Those counties that are grey in color have no activity as yet.
  • Need as many operators as we can for all counties. So please consider operating from your home county. There will be plenty of activity!
  • If you can consider going mobile and cover a few counties, I am sure that it will be fun!

All counties will have activity--Thanks to all that are participating!

Station with a number in parenthesis (ie N4ZZ/M(22)) indicates that this is a moble station and the number indicated the order for which they will visit the county. If you look down this page to the area where the mobiles are listed you will see their listing of the county in order.

  • WA4JA/M: 10-80m Phone, Low Power
    Limestone Morgan Marshall Etowah Calhoun Talladega Cleburne Clay Randolph Chambers If it appears WA4JA/m will be the only active station in some of the counties, I will extend the run and shorten on others that are already covered. John Almon, WA4JA

  • N4QP/M: Plan to be mobile from 1100 to 1900 CST with John N4QP and Gary N4AST driving and occasionally operating. Plan to be on 40CW most of the time, but have 40M SSB and 20M SSB and CW capability. The following counties: 1. Jefferson 2. Culman 3. Walker 4. Marion 5. Fayette 6. Pickens 7. Tuscaloosa 8. Bibb 9. Jefferson

  • K4ZGB/M: Tom will be mobile in 11 counties:
    Tuscaloosa Bibb Shelby Jefferson St Clair Blount Etowah Marshall Dekalb Jackson Cherokee

  • KK4TE SSB: Alright.....Its that time!!! N4SDB is joining the effort and their route takes me from Mobile County, to Washington, Clarke, Wilcox, Marengo, back into Wilcox, Dallas, Perry, Back into Marengo, Hale, Sumpter, Choctaw, back into Washington, and then back into Mobile County for a total of 10 Southwestern Alabama counties. (I65 to hwy 43, to hwy 5, to hwy 80, to hwy 17, to hwy 45 and then home, one BIG loop). I plan to operate on SSB only, mainly on 20 meters. I will be on 40 meters late as I leave Choctaw, change antennas, and head to Washington and Mobile to wrap up my day. I answer paper QSLs 100%. 73 CYA Soon Chuck KK4TE

  • KN4Y CW: Just finished my route, plans are to run following counties in this order: Houston, Geneva, Covington, Escambia, Conecuh, Monroe, Clarke, Washington, Choctaw, Sumter, Perry, Dallas, Wilcox, Butler, Crenshaw, Pike, Dale.

  • N4RNR SSB: I think I will focus on the lower left quarter of the State.  This would include Sumter, Choctaw, Washington, Clarke, Marengo, Perry, Dallas, Wilcox, Monroe, Conecuh, Escambia, Covington, Butler, Crenshaw, Lowndes, and Autauga.  That is 16 counties to cover in 12 hours, which will give me 30-45 minutes in each county. Plan right now is to use my Icom IC-7000 and Hustler antennas for 40 and 20 meters - Phone only.  Ed/KJ4LTA will be my driver.

  • KU4QG/M SSB: Here is a timed list of the counties I intend to travel for the 2015 AQP. I have the ability to work on 10,15,20,40 and 80 meters. Depending on the conditions, time of the day, and the action/response on a band: will determine when and where I will be working a band. As a general rule I will be in a county for approximately 30 min. Working the highest band to the lowest. Generally 10,15,20and 40 in the day till the terminator passes: and 20, 40 and 80 meters into the night. As suggested I will be on the first 10khz general phone band for each band.
    I am still looking for a driver to drive only or co-operator/driver. So here goes my plans: (all times local CST times) County Local UTC Abbreviation Limestone 1100 - 1130 1600 - 1630 LIME Lauderdale 1130 - 1200 1630 - 1700 LAUD Lawrence 1200 - 1230 1700 - 1730 LAWE Colbert 1230 - 1300 1730 - 1800 COLB Franklin 1300 - 1330 1800 - 1830 FRAN Winston 1330 - 1400 1830 - 1900 WINS Marion 1400 - 1430 1900 - 1930 MARI Walker 1430 - 1500 1930 - 2000 WALK Fayette 1500 - 1530 2000 - 2030 FAYE Lamar 1530 - 1600 2030 - 2100 LAMA Pickens 1600 - 1630 2100 - 2130 PICK Greene 1630 - 1700 2130 - 2200 GREE Hale 1700 - 1730 2200 - 2230 HALE Bibb 1730 - 1800 2230 - 2300 BIBB Perry 1800 - 1830 2300 - 2330 PERR Chilton 1830 - 1900 2330 - 0000 CHIL Coosa 1900 - 1930 0000 - 0030 COOS Elmore 1930 - 2000 0030 - 0100 ELMO Macon 2000 - 2030 0100 - 0130 MACO Bullock 2030 - 2100 0130 - 0200 BULL Pike 2100 - 2130 0200 - 0230 PIKE Coffee 2130 - 2200 0230 - 0300 COFF Dale 2200 - 2230 0300 - 0330 DALE Barbour 2230 - 2400 0330 - 0400 BARB I do not think 10 will be up, as it has not been doing to well lately. But I will give It a try. For the most part I plan to 15/20/40 meters, ten minutes each in the day; and 20/40/75 meters in the evening. As requested I will be in the first five or so KHz of the general portion of the respective bands at the Counties/Times listed. Bob
