MS0INT - EU-118

Look for operators Oscar/EA1DR, George/EA2TA, Christian/EA3NT, Col/MM0NDX, Vincent/F4BKV and Bjorn/SM0MDG to activate Flannan Isles (an extremely difficult island to land on) between June 18-21st. Last activation was in 2002 (also in 1989 and 1995). Callsign will be MS0INT. Their main target will be working as many JA stations as possible and giving everyone a fair chance of working the EU-118 IOTA reference. Therefore, they aim to be active on 80-6 meters trying to get advantage on the best bands, with 2 simultaneous stations on the air (possibly 3 stations in daylight), one on CW and another on SSB. They state, "Since our stay on the island is limited, please remember that 1 QSO will be enough, no matter the band." QSL Manager will be M0URX. The team is still looking for sponsors.

VE7XF 50MHz cross country trip

VE7XF/mobile will be leaving on June 2 for a west-to-east coast-to-coast road trip, CQing all the way from CN89 (Vancouver) through 53 grids, arriving in FN76 (PEI) approximately June 10. The route will be via the Trans-Canada highway all the way. Some of the grids will be rare due to lack of activity in the wilderness, but only a few will be good for the FF challenge. Once in PEI, the call will be VY2AKX (best I could do since my '95 -'96 operation as VY2KX) until about July 13, then back on the road for a return trip to CN89 through the same grids. I'm going to try to get on for the CQ VHF contest from somewhere in Manitoba as VE4KX. I'll be calling on 50.125 when the band is quiet, moving to 50.140 when the band opens IC-706 to a KB6KQ halo on the road, and an IC-756 Pro3 to a 4el yagi when in a fixed mode in PEI. QSL all above to VE7XF (see QRZ.COM) with the usual SASE (US postage OK).
