South Orkney Islands DX-pedition
During the week of October 21 – 27, 2019 team members and helpers met in Placerville and Los Altos Hills, California to consolidate, test and repack the equipment to be used during the South Orkney Island DX-pedition.
On Friday, October 25th we visited the Elecraft factory to receive 8 K3s stations, including amplifiers, pan adapters and other supporting equipment. During the week antennas were assembled, tuned, tested and marked for easy transport and reassembly.
All software was loaded on Lenovo laptops, QSOs were entered into N1MM and test logs were uploaded to our log search server over the Inmarsat BGAN satellite network.
