After several activations from various DX locations during the year 2016, the party wagon will arrive in Antigua for the get-away birthday. V26BH will be active on the actual birthday, November 19, continuing with sporadic activity throughout the weekend.
The party will then move forward to the Commonwealth of Dominica in order to participate in the CQWW CW contest as J70BH. Brian, K1LI, Dan, K1TO, Leena, OH2BE, Martti, OH2BH, Petri, OH2NB and Juha, OH8NC will handle the violins while they are supported by Brian, N3OC, George, K5KG, Lambert, J73LC, Kelly, SM7NHC, Radio Arcala, Yaesu Musen and Expert Amps USA.
QSOs with V26BH and J70BH count for 5 points toward the BOTA award. On the actual day, November 19, communication with the party is also possible through email@example.com.
In addition to these on-air activities, HamSphere(R), the Virtual Amateur Radio platform, will be introduced to the educational system of Dominica on November 23. Under the group’s supervision, selected youth teams will compete for speed and accuracy in an emergency communication drill dubbed “Haminica 2016” as well as getting introduced to virtual version of Amateur Radio. Here the Amateur Radio is experienced in the typical hangout of youth – the Internet. The project is sponsored by Dominica’s National Telecommunication Regulatory Commission, including NTRC Executive Director Craig Nesty and Engineer George James, J73GJ.
The other end of the traffic exercise is managed/observed at the ARRL HQ.
