* We will listen DOWN 2-3 in 160m to JA. We will listen UP to all others.

It is important to highlight that such frequencies are preferable, but may be changed by depending upon several reasons (e.g. QRM, local noise, etc…)

PP1CZ will be the one responsible for uploading logs at Club Log. If you wish to clarify any issue related to log, please address your e-mail to PP1CZ: .

XX9B Team is committed to contact all ham ops in the pile-up, but for several reasons, we know that it may not be possible. So, please, bear in mind that we will do our best to get you, but BE PATIENT! If we restrict calls to some places, that will be done in specific time frames when propagation uses to be opened to such places. Please, be polite, respect it and wait for your time.

DXpeditions are far from honeymoons. A couple of unexpected issues arise, no matter how cautious you have been. Therefore, we encourage you to foster your ham spirit and comply with the simple guidelines of the DX Code of Conduct.

Finally, we are proud to welcome PY5KD – Luciano who joined the team last month and will be instrumental for the success of this DXpedition.

  1. Given the recent excellent operation from Macao, the in demand band for XX9 is 160mtrs. You should reconsider your priorities and make an effort there, if at all possible. Club Log stats will show you how much the need there is outside of Japan.

  2. Hello, most Inportant Band should be 80m and 160m … all other are not Most wanted, on Air of couple Expeditions in past and Rare because difficult Condx. But They can work many JA on higher Bands in Low SFI 🙂 but no Matter, GL and GD Condx 73

  3. I also very much hope that you will be able to activate the range of 160 meters.
    Thank you in advance, good luck and success in everything. Good health to you

  4. Wishing you all good luck and looking forward to catch you on air from such a place with hard transmitting condx.
    Best 73s de Jose EA5BCQ.
