In Memorium: Kenneth Lamar Lane
My Dad, Kenneth Lamar Lane, passed on July 12, 2017. He was ninety year of age. The obituary is here . What Dad did for me would take up a book. However, Dad's interest in electronics I can share here. He was not an engineer or even a ham radio operator. Hi...

My plans for the July 15th RaDAR Challenge are shaping up. My callsign is N4KGL During the four-hour period of the challenge, I am stopping at four Florida State Parks (See map below) in a 20-mile stretch or as many as I can. I need to make five contacts to move to the next park. My mode of transportation will be my van. I will operate inside the van due to the hot weather here in Northwest Florida. The rig will be the Icom 7100 setup in the van. I am testing a Chameleon antenna with an 18-foot whip attached to a hitch mount for this mission. Therefore, I will not be truly mobile. The contacts will count for the WWFF-KFF Parks On The Air program. There are RaDAR awards sponsored by WWFF-KFF; Warthog for three RaDAR transitions, Rhino for four transitions and Cheetah for six transitions. A RaDAR transition is making five contacts moving the required distance and making five more contacts.The period of the RaDAR awards is 24 four hours. I can keep making stops after the four-hour period of the RaDAR Challenge expires. On a round trip of four parks, I can make six transitions for the Rhino Award. This is my first RaDAR Challenge transitioning in a vehicle. I usually am on foot. I have an offer from Dennis WA6QKN to be my co-pilot. I am looking for RaDAR to RaDAR contacts of course. Note all chasers welcome. I may get some WWFF chasers.If I work a contact in a WWFF listed park those contacts will count for Park to Park when the contact is submitted to WWFF by both stations. I have coined this day of operating "Cheetah Run."
