St. Eustatius DXpedition 2011

Farewell Party

Posted on 2011-10-16 in Lates News | by

The farewell party took place at Wlodek’s home yesterday. It was attended by  by local Dx-men – SP6AEG, SP6EF, SP6LMQ and SQ6R, members of SPDX Club. Strategy of operation on the bands and final equipment review took place. It was decided that during the high SFI the special attention should be given to 12 & 10 m band . Despite more as 1200 QSOs on 160m in 2010′ operation log there is still big demand for this band as well. So we decided to put the special attention to those bands. Anyhow expedition will operate on all HF bands CW, RTTY and SSB. We are getting some enquires from such remote from PJ5 countries as JA & BY for skeeds. We will pay a special attention for Asia and far east anyhow propagation windows are very narrow to those direction (about 40 minutes on 40m and 15 minutes on 80 meters). So would you please send  e-mails with some SWL reports from those regions of the world and we will follow the instruction. After tomorrow we are starting towards Sint Eustatius (called Statia by the  local people) with 150 kg of luggage, mostly equipment and antennas as we don’t need to much clothes on the warm island ( 30C  day/25 C night). If everything go up to the schedule we start our operation on Thursday early afternoon local time (around 17 UTC). See you on the air.
