Today I am kayaking out to Fort Gorges in Casco Bay off of Portland, Maine.
Fort Gorges qualifies as a Castle on the Air (COTA): K-00376.
Activation Details
Date: Monday, August 12th, 2019
Time: 4:00pm EST
Wx: 75 degrees and sunny
I plan on taking the following radio gear:
  • LNR Precision Mountain Topper (how aptly named) and a couple of 9V batteries
  • Packtenna end fed antenna for 20m
I will have my InReach and as always you can follow me in real time.
I plan on operating 20 meters. I will be spotting myself via my InReach and cell (if available). I will also try to update my Twitter account.
