Our goal was to work every grid square in Oklahoma. We started in September planning the route and giving VHF contesting presentations to all the clubs we could find along the way - and at two OK hamfests. Oddly enough warm temperatures in Oklahoma in January blessed our journey! We did go through several thunderstorms in SE and Eastern Oklahoma, but weathered the trip well! We discovered that our trusted Tahoe (with 257,500 miles) had a number of mechanical problems just 5 days before the contest which after evalution by the dealership it was revealed that the Tahoe would never rove again. On Thursday evening, we purchased a used 2011 Suburban with the same internal and external form/fit. On Friday morning, we stripped the Tahoe of all the antennas and radio and equipment. On Friday afternoon we re-outfitted the Suburban - and we continued with our journey of VHF enlightenment through the Sooner State in the contest! Despite travelling through a part of the country that is sparcely populated, we discovered that our score actually improved over our rove last January from Waco to Houston to Dallas to Tulsa to OKC! We attribute this to an additional operator, more experience, and the addition of 1.25m and 23cm antennas to the vehicle!
