Randy, N0TG, reports on the upcoming CY9C operation for August 19-29th [edited]: The CY9C DXpedition team is very busy with last minute details and packing.
All equipment will begin the journey to our take off point in Nova Scotia,
August 13-14th. We plan to be partially on the air on 19th August and
fully operational 20th August. The home page of our website has a link
for those who desire to check the log. Log data will be posted LIVE.
We will be using ClubLog and OQRS. Direct QSL via WA4DAN.
Activating 60m for the first time from St. Paul is exciting for the team. And, while conditions will be a challenge for 160m, the team is energized to give it a serious effort. Also, be assured we will pay attention to the long and/or difficult propagation paths on all bands when conditions are workable. We look forward to working not only the more common bands CW/SSB/RTTY, but also 6m, 2m EME and Satellite.
We appreciate the donations and support by many. Even now in these
last days, support is most helpful and appreciated. Our sincere thanks
to all interested and following this dxpedition. We look forward to
working you. Thank you.
