=Parachute Mobile QSO=
Skydivers will jump from 13,000 feet and once they have deployed their
parachutes they will make contacts (QSOs) with as many hams as possible.
QSOs with the Jumpers will be on 146.430 simplex with an
alternate of 147.570 simplex.
The first jump is scheduled to occur around 1200 hrs and approximately
each hour thereafter. There are plans to make 4 jumps.
