Southgate Amateur Radio Club News brief:


YJ0X Vanuatu DXpedition

Everything is on schedule for our arrival in Vanuatu on October 3rd.

We hope to have at least two of the stations working and at least one aerial up for that evening.

The emphasis the next day will be installing the contest band antennas ready for the Oceania DX contest SSB leg later on that day, though we do hope to make some Qs as well. Soon after the contest, we’ll be adding the WARC band antennas and 6m set-up, and when time permits the 160m antenna.

We will be looking for openings to South America and Africa, the two continents most needing YJ for a new one, so if you’re outside these areas, please QRX for the very short time it will take to work through callers.

Regarding the Oceania SSB and CW legs, Clublog real-time uploads will be switched off during this time and uploaded soon after the contest ends.

The YJ0X crew has worked together very well through the planning stages and we’re all very excited to be undertaking this adventure!

See you in the pile-ups!

Paul, Phil, Gordon and Geoff

Almost everything is prepared for the Vanuatu DXpedition (YJ0X), which should get underway on 03 October 2014.  This is a fairly rare country, so be ready for the pileups and some QRM.  Paul, Phil, Gordon, and Geoff are experienced operators and they will try to be evenhanded in giving out contacts.
