AD0AX/VY0 – Ellesmere Island, NA-008


    Rob, KC0VEU will again be /VY0 in Eureka, Ellesmere Island, Nunavut, Canada (IOTA NA-008, grid loc EQ79ax) from June 22 – July 05 on official business.

    Sometime during his stay, and weather permitting, he will attempt to operate from the PEARL facility 15km away, which is located at 80°N, 86°25’W and therefore in the rare ER grid (ER60) for those who chase the CQ Grid Fields award, and the rare ITU Zone 75.

    PEARL (the Polar Environment Atmospheric Research Laboratory) is also a separate base for the Arctic Challenge. This is Rob’s fifth time on Ellesmere.

    KC0VEU recently passed his Extra class exam and is expecting a new call sign in the AD0 block, but will still sign /VY0. QSL is direct or bureau to his home call, KC0VEU.
