Update April 20: FM03, FM02, EM93 Activation Update: April 20 - 22, 2021 at 0000UTC 4.20.21
I have arrived in FM03 after visiting all three locations and selecting activation sites. I have made some adjustments in the final locations.
The FM03 site is moved to boat launching ramp location in the National Forest on the South Carolina coast. Also I am making another change in the FM03 schedule. I will be QRV for 2 hours at MR then I need to stop for 1 hour then will resume. Photos of the locations in the direction of moonrise are included below.

I will have Internet access at FM03. Weak signals at FM02 and EM93. The weather is perfect.

During the activation of FM03 on Tuesday I must pause the activation from 1900UTC until 2000UTC. The revised operation times are as follows:
FM03FA29 - 33.0393N -79.5617W MR 1700UTC - 1900UTCAz63 Tuesday April 20th
FM03FA29 - 33.0393N -79.5617W 2000UTC Az63 Tuesday April 20th - 0100UTC April 21
FM02CW88 - 32.9518N -79.7621W MR 1800UTC - 2359UTC Az67 Wednesday April21th
EM93FA - 33.0195N -81.5507W MR 1916UTC Az73 Thursday April 22th -0200UTC Friday April 23rd

Unfortunately I can't work both ends of the passes for APAC because I would have consective days of 24 hours awake because I am also doing MS operations in the early mornings.

At EM93 MR may be delayed because of elevation gain in MR direction.


Update April 10: Operation cancelled. He is planning to reschedule for the weekend of April 23, 24, 25, which should have excellent conditions.


Update April 5: FM03. FM02, EM93 Activation Update: 
This is the updated plan for the activations next weekend:

FM03GB48 - 33.07886N -79.4647W MR 1032UTC Az95 Saturday April 10th
FM02CW88 - 32.9518N -79.7621W MR 1100UTC Az88 Sunday April 11th
EM93FA45 - 33.0218N -81.5454W MR 1134UTC Az82 Monday April 12th


I will arrive to inspect each location before sunset on the previous day. Depending on the site I may erect the antenna array then go back to the hotel. When I return to the site I can be on the air in 10 minutes. Only have to start the generator and connect the cables.

On April 10th and 11th I plan to be on the air for at least 8 hours at each site. Priority will be 2M JT65 EME. There is a meteor shower this weekend so I also plan to operate some MS on 6M and 2M with dual stations. I may run MS before moonrise and after all 2M EME callers have completed QSOs.

On Monday April 12th I plan to be on 6M and 2M MS from EM93 before MR. I plan to operate 2M EME until 1700UTC on April 12th. I have an 8 hour drive home on April 12th therefore I need to suspend operations no later than 1700UTC.

Planned calling frequency is 144.130 2nd. I should have good Internet connections at all sites.

On April 10th and 11th, after all 2M EME JT65 callers have completed QSO's. I may be available to try Q65 for anyone who is interested in experimenting.

I use Google Earth Pro with Earthpoint extensions to find locations. The image resolution is good enough to see power lines and in many cases possible fences/gates. I use Rune's SM5CUI Moontracker to verify locations, moonrise, azimuth and other information to plan where I locate the antenna array for best moon visibility, to aviod local QRN sources and noise from the truck/portable station.


KA6U plans to be on 2m EME from FM03, FM02 and EM93 in April 10-12, 2021

I am planning to activate FM03, FM02 and EM93 on the Atlantic Ocean coast of South Carolina.

More details as the date is closer.
