    In this historic week in American history, we elect a new President, celebrate Walter Cronkite, KB2GSG [SK], and rest assured this show will not make it to the broadcasting archive in Washington, D.C. Be that as it may, Christian home brews, hangs and tunes an 80M dipole. Plus, Steve, WA5SAT introduces us to an upcoming DXpedition with two possible DXCC entities. All of this and more on this episode of 100 Watts and a Wire.

    Activate two entities? There is a place to do three in one shot. It's on my list.

    Just took the gear to Tobago (fk91), Suriname (gj06), Guyana (gj15, 25) and Panama (zero contacts) via satellite.

    Tried four, got three this trip. Survived the attempt. On HF from Suriname. Currently two active hams in country. Number of hams there triples during a contest.

    Suriname is a return again.

    Listen directionally!

    In July 2011, Bill NZ5N worked satellites from the Austria/Hungary/Slovakia border tripoint, activating 3 DXCC entities at one time. Bill wrote about it, and posted some photos, at:

    Bill worked a few stations on both sides of the Atlantic from that spot on an AO-7 pass, and more Europeans on other satellite passes.

    In July 2010, I worked the AO-27 and AO-51 satellites from the Peace Arch, on the Canada/USA border south of Vancouver. I used both of my call signs WD9EWK and VA7EWK, as I had one foot in Canada (British Columbia) and the other in the USA (Washington state), next to a border marker in the park around the arch.

    This is a video made from audio recorded during the AO-51 pass I worked, along with photos I took that afternoon:

    Unlike most points on this border, visitors are free to walk across the border within the park around the Peace Arch, as long as the leave the park from the direction they entered. Otherwise, a stop at Customs is required. Two US Customs agents walked by me while I was on the border with my radio and antenna, and only said "hello" in passing.
