N4KGL Plans for the 11 July RaDAR Challenge

N4KGLwill operate RaDAR Challenge from Opal Beach on Santa Rosa Island in Northwest Florida. The island is very narrow with the Gulf of Mexico on the Southside and Santa Rosa Sound on the Northside. We will use a vertically polarized antenna to take advantage of the saltwater effect. Since the IARU HF Championship Contest will be underway, we will check 17 meters first, then 40 or 20 meters.  We will use low power and be on foot.
