Only 3 days to go

Don't forget folks only 3 days to go before the Strumble Head DX and Contest Group (SHDXCG) will once again be activating 1 Welcome to Ramsey Island EU124 2011Ramsey Island (EU-124, WFF GWFF-072) (12th to 16th July 2012).

They will be on all bands from 40M through to 6M using 2 Hexbeams and a Windom. radios will be a Kenwood TS590s, a Kenwood TS480 (see below) and a Yaesu FT890. This year a station will be dedicated to digital, mostly RTTY, using the TS480 at 200w and one of the Hexbeams. They have also analysed their logs and seen that there is a shortage of contacts with North and South America, and also the countries around the Caribbean. They have looked at the terrain and the location of the antennas with a view to getting one Hexbeam a little higher to clear a small ridge that blocks the Westerly direction allowing these contacts to be made.

As usual QSL via the manager Tim, M0URX, using his OQRS system for a speedy turn around. Logs will be uploaded to LOTW and Clublog as soon as they get back to the mainland. 

The team have also advised that they will operate from their farm HQ if they are unable to make the crossing to the island due to bad weather, but will announce on air and on the website if this is the case.
