tt8tt-team-300x277.jpg“The Italian DXpedition Team is pleased to announce its next DXpedition. Unlike some of its previous activities this trip is dedicated to a specific event: the recent authorization for the usage of 6 meter band in Republic of Kenya. Using this frequency the team will dedicate its effort to a less time on HF compared to others recent activations. The trip is planned for the 21st of May until the 31st of May 2015 and the crew will use the call 5ZØL. The IDT will leave in Kenya the 5JXX6 5 elements antenna to Daniel 5Z4/EA4ATI, to continue the activities on 6m after the end of the dxpedition.”

Ramsey Island, G

Posted by Admin

Members of the Strumble Head DX and Contest Group (SHDXCG) will once again be activating Ramsey Island between June 19-22nd. Activity will be on 20-6 meters with 3 stations on the air full time as they are only there for 3 nights. They will be using 3 of the new "Hexpedition" hexbeams built by Ant, one will be directed to the West to allow them to work as many stations in the USA as possible as they seem to be lacking contacts from there each year. There may be some digi mode operating, and again, they will be looking on 6m to work as many as possible on there too. As usual, QSL via the manager Tim, M0URX, (see www.m0urx.com) 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 Web site at: http://www.mc0shl.com
