The teams website tells us ”It was named aftee Eusebio Kino. The name also applies to the adjacent bay between Alcatraz Island and Punta San-Nicolas, Sonora. The names Bahía de Kino and Bahía Kino are used interchangeably.” Founded in the 1920s as a small fishing camp, Bahía de Kino is a thriving community of about 7,000 inhabitants The town is administered as part of the municipality of Hermosillo. I
t is located on land that was part of the traditional territory of the Seri people who now live to the north on their communal property. The team will be using Yaesu and Kenwood transceivers and in the main the antennas are verticals, the exception being a Moseley TA-33 beam for 10, 15 & 20 meter bands. They have two amplifiers at their disposal so the UK should be in a good position to work them, the early morning on the lower bands and of course on the higher bands between lunch time and early evening being the better times to catch them.
Qsl will be via EA5XC, click callsign for details. Good luck to the team, here’s hoping I manage to work the new IOTA.
