band is "dead" for Es, we will operate FSK441(First Sequence always),
also on 50.150MHz. This is the same frequency we used in EL58. Because
of the battery power problem, we may not be able to operate all night
long on MS. We may have to conserve battery power by shutting down in
the late evening and charging both our battery packs. In any case, we
intend to be on MS in the early AM hours.
JTRG will be conducting a DXpedition and activating a US Island (FL479S) from within the cold-war bomb shelter built for President John F. Kennedy on Peanut Island!
Buried underground and encased by lead, concrete and rebar, the DX operating stations will be positioned inside the bunker. However, much like the communications prior to the threat of a nuclear attack, we'll be reaching out to the world as W4K! In addition the bunker, we'll also operate from the Coast Guard Museum and boat house as well.
The event will take place May 29th and 30th of 2010, so we'll be posting additional information as we get near.
