PT2IC, PY1ZV and PY6RT plan an operation for 3-4 days in November, callsign PR0T at the PY0T station. Currently planned is CW, SSB andFT8 with a multiband vertical. Operating remote on FT8 will be PY4AZ, PY8WW, PY7RP, PY5EG, PY2XB, PY5KD, PY2WAS and apparently one or two “guests” in addition.
The team, apparently the first three, will be there for 3 days during the change of crew of the Brazilian Navy that are stationed on the island. The bands will be 40-10, and 160 and 80 possible “if conditions allow.” The three ops on the island will do the CW and SSB and the other nine will do FT8 remote. CW and SSB will be at one camp with the FT8 operation as much as 400 meters away. The vertical on CW and SSB will be a BigIR IV or S9. At the FT8 site it’s a DXE-MBVE 5A and a Starlink connection. www.PR0T.com.br
The team will stay in place for about 3 days during the change crew of the Brazilian Navy that resides on the island. We will be on the air from 10 to 40m. 80 and 160m only if local conditions allow.
QSL via M0OXO OQRS
Argentina QSL Bureau has given us many problems with mail being returned since 2015, this package sent last July was returned in October, re-posted in October and returned in July 2023.
Sadly I am no longer able to continue sending Bureau cards to Argentina
In an email from Argentina QSL Bureau i am informed that there is no communication from the PO that the package is ready for collection when it gets handed from customs to Argentina Post. As this is a long term issue I have asked the team to discuss with the mail centre manager, because we are just not able to get QSL cards to the Bureau in Argentina.
The Amateur Radio Experimenter’s Group was formed on the 27th of July 1998, with the intention of promoting experimentation through amateur radio. This year marks the groups’ 25th Anniversary year.
Throughout July and August members of AREG will put the VI25AREG call on the air.
Special achievement certificates will be available for stations who submit an ADIF log to firstname.lastname@example.org that contains contact with VI25AREG on at least three or more different modes of operation.
A special QSL card is also being designed which will be available via Charles M0OXO’s bespoke QSL Service. You will shortly be able to log requests here:
