MC0SHL – Ramsey Island EU-124


    The Strumble Head DX and Contest Group will once again be activating Ramsey Island EU-124 between 12th and 16th July 2012. They will be on all bands from 40M through to 6M using 2 Hexbeams and a Windom.

    This year they are hoping to have a station dedicated to digital, mostly RTTY, using a TS480 at 200w and one of the Hexbeams. They have also analysed their logs and noticed 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. All details and (hopefully) a daily blog will be available on their website

    *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 if this is the case.
