Thanks for all the QSOs on two passes of FO-29. I think it was 18 QSOs that I made, but will have to confirm from the recording. If you missed me, don't worry. I'll go back soon. It's only a 15 minute walk from my apartment.
I also plan to go to some of the other NPOTAs. There are several within walking distance. I'll bring an AlexLoop next time for HF between passes.

I'm going to stick around for the 1910Z pass of FO-29 as well. Same frequency. I'll probably miss the first couple of minutes of the pass. The Air and Space Museum is in the way!

I am about to depart for the Mall. Please look for me around 435.865 MHz +/- Doppler on the 1724Z pass of FO-29.
Exchange will be a signal report + DZ06. I won't be sending my gridsquare. It's FM18lv, same as when I'm at home.
Tomorrow I will activate the National Mall (DZ06) on the FO-29 pass at 1724Z tomorrow. Unfortunately I can't stay for more than the one pass, but will return several times in the future. The National Mall is about three quarters of a mile north of my apartment, so I will walk there with my normal satellite gear (2 Yaesu FT-817s and a Microset VUR-30 amplifier) and Elk antenna. Since I am carrying everything on me, not setting anything up, and have a relatively discrete location in mind, I do not anticipate any problem with the authorities, but one can never tell! Check my Twitter @PRStoetzer for real time updates.

I will try to activate as many of the feasible NPOTA sites in the District of Columbia as possible on satellite during the rest of the year.
