Activation Details by Rover[edit]

Jeff WE4B / Marissa W4AQT[edit]

Jeff and Marissa activated Walmart Neighborhood Market #4691. Both stations worked two other associates. Fun and frivolity was had by all!

Ken VE3HLS[edit]

VE3HLS, satellite grid activator, unofficial Tim Hortons Coffee spokesperson, and co-captain of the ARRL featured Springtime Rove to The Great White North, has announced his WMPLOTA 2018 Activation Schedule:

Sat Apr 28[edit]

Walmart Aurora, ON [FN04], 2 hours centered around 19:00 UTC

Sun Apr 29[edit]

Walmart Richmond Hill, ON [FN03], 2 hours centered around 19:00 UTC

Details: I’ll spend an hour or two each day, centered around 19:00 UTC. These aren’t rare grids, and I don’t have all day to spend there.

Adam K0FFY[edit]

K0FFY, satellite dad, fine coffee addict, and amateur amateur, has announced the following WMPLOTA Activations:

Ron AD0DX[edit]

Ham since 1976, first call VE3IIR. Enjoy CW and mobile contesting. Only active on satellites for a few months but having a lot of fun. Enjoy roving and travelling to rare grids. My wife is an active bird watcher, so she enjoys going to out of the way places too. Look for me on Friday April 27th at the 4 corner grid DM 68 / 69 / 78 / 79 just north of Buena Vista, CO on AO-91.

Sun Apr 29[edit]

Look for me on Sunday April 29th from Salida CO WalMart Super Center EM68 on AO-91 at 1930z. It's a 77 deg pass for me. This is gonna be fun !!

Scott K4KDR[edit]

Will be my first attempt at portable sat operation, so let's start with low expectations and go down from there. Note that 28-Apr #WMPLOTA attempt will be outside my normal grid, so if anyone can use FM07, please listen for me. Finally, will be wearing goggles and have absolutely no idea why.

APRS during event: K4KDR-9
