PLEASE NOTE: Many of these announced operations will be part-time efforts only. If YOUR county (or the county or counties you’re planning to operate from) is/are already listed, please don’t let that stop you from getting on the air anyway! Also note the mode’s being activated – someone may only be doing SSB or CW (or both) – so feel free to fill in any gaps you can.[dual]
