LA - Norway - 10.07.14
LI4LN planning to be QRV in NRAU Nordic Activity Contests (NAC) 6 m on Thursday 10 July (17 - 21 UTC), and 4 m on Thursday 17 July (17 - 21 UTC), both contests from the fairly rare QTH locator square JO29 with 5 element Yagi antennas and 100 W output power (using a new Icom IC-7100 + small PA + RX preamp), all modes (CW, SSB, FM, digital WSJT), on both 6 m and 4 m.
If no ES or aurora or tropo, check 6 m MS (JT6M mode, 1st period) near 50230 kHz (+/-).
Please note: On 4 m in this county NO operation is permitted between 70.1875 and 70.2625 kHz, because of commercial services there. This means that my operation will be 70.150 - 70.180 MHz (most likely 70170 - 70.180) and 70.270 - 70.300 (most likely 70.290 - 70.300), depending on QRM and QRN. MS mode on 4 m will be FSK441, 1st period.
I can operate split frequency, and will check 69.950 and 69.990 MHz (or elsewhere, if notified) on RX if the 4 m band is open to Germany.
The special call sign LI4LN will be used (in commemoration of the bicentennial of the Norwegian Constitution during 2014). Contacts will count for the special "Norway 1814" award: http://www.dxawards.com/inet2014.htm#NORGE
