N0KV, W0ETT, W0ZA, and WD0E June 10-18th, 2015 from Gingerbread Hill, St. Peters, Montserrat.
Operation will be on 80-2 meters, SSB/CW/RTTY and will include participation in the ARRL VHF Contest and some satellite operation. Will attempt to keep two 500W radios on the air nearly 24 hrs/day.
All QSO’s will be posted to LOTW soon after returning to the US. Paper QSL’s may be obtained via N0KV at the address above. US operators send SASE; others send SASE or SAE + $2 US for return postage.
Six meter beacon will be active on 50.102 when the normal 6M station is not manned (or in use on HF), and operator will listen during beacon tranmitter pauses.
VP2MKV will operate FO-29 only on selected passes. We will attempt the long hops to the edges of coverage if the equipment performs well at low elevations and obstructions allow. We will attempt to post passes we plan to work 24 hours in advance on amsat-bb. The uplink frequency will be 145.925 and we will tune our downlink for stations calling. The location is 16.776924N 62.214474W in grid FK86vs. Equipment is an ICOM 910H and Arrow antenna. Uplink power will be about 20W. Stations are asked to work us only once on the satellite. If we respond with your call you are in the log. We will also attempt to post a list of stations worked to amsat-bb daily.
