XRØYG – Easter Island


Between 20-27 March 2013, a team of British hams will be active from Easter Island on all bands 160m to 10m, mainly CW. We will run the HF bands but we also plan to work challenging paths on the low bands, emphasis on Europe.

We are using Elecraft K3s, small PAs and vertical antennas. Depending on the space available we will use a beverage or flag for RX on the low bands.

Club Log uploads and LoTW uploads will occur daily and OQRS will be available.

Team Members are – Michael G7VJR, Nigel G3TXF, John G4IRN, Martin G3ZAY

About author View all posts Author website

Charles M0OXO

I was born in the 1960’s and have lived all my life in the Coal Mining Town of Barnsley in South Yorkshire, Northern England. My parents were all from this area of Yorkshire and my father worked in the main Industry of the local Collieries as a face worker. I have been married to my wife Debbie for 35+ years and we have two children and two grandchildren.

I have been licensed for around 20 years after my interest was re-kindled when I retired from my role as a Police Officer within South Yorkshire Police Force. The latter few years were spent as Radio Operator in the Force Operations Control Room at Sheffield, before my career ended.

IOTA chasing is (and always has been) my real passion, as climbing the ladder to reach Honour Roll status was always my main aim. The 1000 Islands Trophy is still out of reach but I am heading in the right direction. I am currently a Board Member of IOTA Ltd and IREF.

In my free time I am a keen Photographer of Wildlife, Aviation, (anything really) but the QSL Manager role is my main passion within Ham Radio.
