I will be departing on my annual cross-country road trip from Central Michigan 
to  on Saturday  26 Oct.  I will be variously in Los Angeles, Ridgecrest and 
Sacramento for most of November before the return trip in late November just 
before Thanksgiving.

As usual, I will be beaconing as:

WA8LMF (No SSID)       2 Meters 144.39
WA8LMF-2  (Conventional AX.25 Packet on 30 Meters HF)
WA8LMF-63  (PSK63/GMSK250/MFSK16 on 30 Meters HF)

I will be beaconing alternately on  AX.25 at 10.149.200/400 (Mark & Space 
freqs)  and PSK63  at 10.149.700 on 30 meters, so this is once again an 
opportunity to compare the relative effectiveness of the two modes.  Both modes 
are going out the same radio (FT-857) and antenna (W6HIQ  "Hi-Q" autotune 
screwdriver).

 From time to time, I may QSY to 10.132 MHz or 14.230 MHz for mobile LiveCAM SSTV

If propagation is decent, you may see my mobile being received off-the-air at 
my home UIview 30M HF APRS webserver at
