For those that are familiar you know I have operated over several years in the past from my family’s place in Ontario, Canada. I missed out on going last year but I am headed back again this year!
Please see my last trip report (combined with Field Day) back in 2009. There are also a couple reports I did – Operation “Red Buoy” and Operation “Red Buoy 2″ while I was there. I will have to get there and see if the “red buoy” is still my internet hotspot. If not, no worries. I’ll just rough it for a few days.
In past years I have run all 3 bands - 6m, 2m, and 70cm. However, the bulk of my contacts has always been on 6m so this year I am simplifying things and just running 6m. I will also have some HF gear, but in terms of VHF I will be pretty much confined to 6m this trip.
This years trip will be July 2-10, and having a radio on the air from the 3-9 as I have time. You can catch me on the following frequency ranges:
SSB – 50.125 to 50.150, unless the band is crowded I may creep up to 50.200
CW – 50.080 to 50.100
PLEASE pass this along to anyone and everyone that has some VHF interest. I always enjoy the pile ups.
See you on the band!
