This coming weekend (16-17 June 2018) will be a "double-header" ham fest
weekend in Michigan.

On Saturday 16 June, WA8LMF will be traveling to Midland Michigan (about 65
Miles/105Km nearly due north of my home QTH).  He will depart about 0500 EDT
(0900 UTC) for this event that runs Saturday morning through around noon
local.

Then on Sunday 17 June, he will be traveling to Monroe, Michigan (about 75
miles/120KM to the southeast in far southeastern Michigan, midway between
Detroit, MI and Toledo, Ohio. Again, he will depart around 0500 local EDT.
This event, (which is far larger than Midland since it draws from the
Detroit metro area and all of northwestern Ohio), usually breaks up around
1400 hrs local..


On both outings, he will be running test beacons on 60 meters APRS.   As
before, the setup will be:

  * *5403.50 KHz USB* (US 60-meter "channel 5")
  * *WA8LMF-6*  beacon on standard *300-baud AX.25* packet APRS on 1600/1800
Hz
    tones
  * *WA8LMF-66* beacon on APRS Messenger *MFSK16 APRS* on 2100 Hz center
tone.

he will have his home igate/mapping UI-Webserver running.   Goto
