A 10 man international team is about to embark to St Paul Island, a top 40 most wanted DXCC, in the Gulf of St Lawrence, Nova Scotia, Canada. The activity commence this week July 26 and ends August 1.
St Paul Island is commonly referred to as the “Graveyard of the Gulf” which has also been the theme for the expedition logotype. The landing at St Paul Island is difficult and dependent on weather, but the team is experienced from such landings previously at the Flannans (EU-118), St. Kilda (EU-059), Market Reef (EU-053) and many other IOTA expeditions.
A total of 6 stations will be deployed and be active on all bands 160 to 6 meter using the call CY9M. Hex beams and Vertical Dipole Arrays will be used on high bands while verticals and receiving antennas will be in service the lower bands.
CY9M will participate in the IOTA contest next weekend, giving both DXCC and IOTA hunters the chance to confirm NA-094. Our contest operation will be limited to 20 meters only, and we will operate both SSB and CW modes throughout the contest.
