FP/K9OT – St. Pierre & Miquelon

    In 2011, for our eighth visit, K9OT & KB9LIE will just use the call FP/K9OT. We plan on driving to Sydney, Nova Scotia and taking Air Saint-Pierre to St. Pierre, then enjoying a ferry ride or short flight to the island of Miquelon. Our destination as always is ham-friendly Motel Miquelon (formerly Maxotel), once again using Room 5. We also plan on attending the Maritime DX Forum in Halifax on the trip back home.

    We mainly use wire vertical antennas and 100 watts, due to Air Saint-Pierre baggage limits. We do CW and sideband only, with 80-10 meter capability. Main bands are 40, 30, 20, and 17. We will participate in the RSGB IOTA contest as a multi-operator/mixed-mode station. Please point your beams towards FP for a nice multiplier!
