For those using Twitter and Facebook, here’s compilation of the mobile codes with a heavy dose of thanks to TweetSheet and Facebook Help. Send the message in the column to the code at the top of the respective column, ex. 40404 to Twitter. On some phones, it may be possible to update your profile in both without using HelloTxt by sending the same update to both accounts.

Since one works on one side of the State and the Wife lives on the other side of the State, commuting has taken an adventure with High Frequency Radio.

Back in the 70’s, when we were dating, the trip, every other week, was made with a Webster BandSpanner and a Swan 350. During those trips, HF CW (Morse Code) was done. Can’t say there will be an HF CW effort in the near future. The Government’s already talking about making folks hang up their cell, even with Bluetooth. Lets not give them anything else to think about.

At Twitter, one can follow the announced frequencies for the travels. There should also be a link to follow on Automatic Position Reporting System.

Nevertheless, HF mobile operations seems to be fun. Recent contacts have been made with Wyoming, Tennessee, Florida, Kansas, Arkansas, Texas, and Indiana, just to name a few, on 20, 40, 60, and 75 meter bands.

Come join the fun on HF. One never knows which interesting person will chat next.
