I will be activating the ARCA Menard's Series West Napa 150 NASCAR race this July 4th, 2024 at Irwindale Speedway in Southern California. I will likely operate 20 and 40 meters and will update this post with frequencies as the event draws nearer. This event is broadcast live on floracing.com.

Starting up at 10AM Pacific, I'll start around 7.275+/-. I'll be here for a while and if propagation picks up later in the afternoon, I'll move to 14.285 +/-

update: moved to 14.244 due to very weak traffic all over the higher part of the band.


I hope to work you!

Well, this year on July 4th, the band conditions absolutely stank throughout the day. I tried both 20m and 40m off and on all afternoon and couldn't muster much of anything. I could barely hear the 13 Colonies special event way down in the noise floor on 20m, but couldn't copy anything over there. Nevertheless, I tried over and over and logged a few contacts:

    Hello everyone, I have a old courier centurion pll 40 channel SSB, it has the extra channels and it has another switch that just moves the frequency down one channel on the dial, what is the purpose for this?
