Update: Juan de Nova 2016 DXpedition
Juan de Nova 2016 DXpedition
In a few days, the first 2 operators (F2DX & F6BEE) will head to Mayotte island.
They plan to be active between March 18th to 24th from 40 to 6m, signing FH/F2DX and FH/F6BEE. Reports are welcome to give us an idea of the propagation, which will be similar on Juan de Nova.
The 8 other operators will join them later. We are filling the suitcases
with all the sensitive equipment that has not been shipped on the crates. Each piece is carefully checked.
On the other hand, we are working on the last details. We just released
a webpage dedicated to 6m operation which gives all details for TEP and
EME contacts tentatives (Earth-Moon-Earth).
Our pilots received a bunch of reports regarding 12 & 17m RTTY frequencies. Because it was not our first aim to activate these slots, we
have decide not to work RTTY on these bands and keep the focus on 30/20/15m to maximize the number of unique callsigns worked.
The band plan has been updated.
We have just uploaded a short video called 'we are ready' with a message to the international amateur radio community.
We are preparing a communication about the QSL and logs.
These informations will be published on the website before our departure.
Get ready ! FT4JA – Juan de Nova 2016 Expedition
