 Goals

Life in FM13 on Two Meters will be very interesting. It will either be very slow, or hopefully busy with Tropo Ducting along the Coast. We would like to work as many grid squares as possible on SSB, for our multipliers, and work FM Simplex  along Coastal Carolina. With the right conditions, working Florida and the Northeast USA are possibleon FM and SSB.  We hope to enhance those slow times by working WSJT both EME (Moon Bounce) and MS (Meteor Scatter). FM Simplex will be very crutial to our success  too.
