Once again the members of the Strumble Head DX and Contest Group (SHDXCG) are heading over the water to activate the rare Ramsey Island (DXCC – Wales, IOTA EU-124, WFF GWFF-072). Activity will take place between July 22nd and July 26th or 27th (all dependent on tides) using the club callsign MC0SHL.

This trip also takes place during the RSGB IOTA Contest (July 24-25th) where they  will be on the air using the club contest callsign MW9W over the weekend. They will again try to make as many contacts both before and during the contest.


They will have3 stations using the following equipment: two Elecraft K3 Transceivers, one Yaesu FT2000, two G3TXQ Hexbeams, 80m Dipole, 40m Vertical and three Acom 1000.
The team will be using MC0SHL on 17 and 12 meters during the contest to try to give as many contacts on these bands. They will be on the air mostly on SSB, but with some RTTY and CW thrown in.

Full details on last years trip can be found here and also in the Gallery.
