K1024 A91 High res

In just 3 weeks from now, the A91HI DXpedition team will assemble in Al Dar, Bahrain to prepare for their departure to Hawar Island AS-202 NEW. Since our last update, the team have been rather busy. All equipment has been shipped and has already arrived safely in Bahrain. Everything is good to go with all necessary clearances, permits and licenses now in hand.

Please give a big welcome to Charles M0OXO as our QSL manager. As we will now have internet on the island, Charles plans to upload each day to Club Log. This will help to minimise any dupes.

We will be QRV with up to 5 stations at any one time. A comprehensive range of VDAs, verticals and SP7IDX technology Hexbeam antennas will be used to ensure good signals into all geographical areas of the world. We aim to work as many unique stations as possible to give out this brand new IOTA, therefore we will only operate from 40m through 10m; CW, SSB and Digital.

New photos have been added to our website which is being updated regularly. Please consider making a small donation to help offset the team’s growing expenses and remember, we are still offering a ‘Free QSL’ to those who donate a minimum of €5.00. We will be delighted to add your callsign to this page. A big thank you to those groups and individuals who have already contributed.

To make your QSO happen, we will now be QRV for one extra day – expect 1st signals from 18:00 UTC 27th April to 1st May 2016.

You can follow our progress on Twitter especially while we are en-route to the island where tips, news, plans and photos will continue. See for further updates.

See you soon from Hawar Island AS-202 NEW.
