We would like to announce that we are currently in the final planning stages of our regular trip to Ramsey Island – IOTA EU-124.
This year we are going to try to have 3 stations on air full time as we are only there for 3 nights.
Arrive on island Friday 19th June
Depart island Monday 22nd June
We will be using 3 of the new “Hexpedition” hexbeams built by Ant, one will be directed to the West to allow us to work as many stations in the USA as possible as we seem to be lacking contacts from there each year. There may be some digi mode operating and again we will be looking on 6m to work as many as possible on there too.
Team members this year include a new addition of Vinny, M0TAV, who we welcome into the fold as a guest operator. Vinny is the antenna erector here in the midlands and has experience of operating from around the world when he was working on cruise ships and from his time in Thailand.
The full team this year are;
Jane – Rob’s wife and the chief chef and the one who keeps us in check
Laura MW6INK – Ant’s wife and Janes right hand
Glenys G8KWD – Tony’s wife and Janes left hand
The girls are in charge as usual and I am sure will keep us all in our place.
Usual DX Code of conduct rules will be adhered to (FULL CALL ONLY) and the regular QSL route via M0URX. Please do not send your card to us via the bureau as we do not need your card, but use Tim’s on line request service to get your card sent this way free of charge – or request direct and donate a couple of dollars to assist with our costs.
There may be some operating the days before and after from the farm as we all assemble and get ready to travel.
We look forward to meeting you on the air and again we ask to listen to who we call and just act in a true Ham Spirit and allow us to complete the QSO’s.
