還暦を迎え、身の丈に合った、無理をしない、シンプル・ライフ備忘録

カテゴリ: DX NEWS

グロリオソ諸島からのDXペディションが始まった。

FT4GL
・運用期間 5月24日~6月19日
・運用バンド、モード 160m~6m、SSB, FT8(F/H), FT4, RTTY
・Club Logにはインターネットが使える時間(現地時間の18時~20時)にアップ。
・LoTWへのアップロードはペディション終了後の6カ月で。

ペディションのサイトは、フランス語だがイギリス国旗マークをクリックすると英語で表示される。
ペディションのサイトからは日本語の表示が上手くできないが、日本語のサイトもある。

27日が代休で休みだったため、26日の深夜に21MHzSSBをワッチしてみたが、信号はかなり弱かった。
午前2時ごろに少し信号が強くなったが、ヨーロッパのパイルがかなり激しい。

6月19日までなので、週末ごとにワッチしてみたい。
オペレータのMarekとはFHからの運用でQSOをしている。
またFH/F5RQQとも先日21MHzCWでQSOをしたが、いずれも日本時間で日付が変わる時間帯だったと思う。
平日の夜更かしは辛い。

425DX News #1723から抜粋
FT/G   - The band plan for the upcoming  FT4GL  operation  from the Glorioso
         Islands  (24 May-19 June) has been posted to the DXpedition's  web-
         site (see below).  This will be a one-man operation carried out  by
         Marek, FH4VVK  in parallel  with his  professional  activities.  He
         plans to be QRV daily with two stations at the same time on on 160-
         6 metres SSB, FT8 (F/H), FT4 and RTTY.  There will be no CW activi-
         ty, as Marek lacks  sufficient knowledge  of that mode to manage  a
         huge pile-up.  QSOs will be uploaded to Club Log  when the Internet
         is available (from 18 to 20 local time).  QSL via F4FTV;  full LoTW
         upload  will follow  six months  after the end  of the  DXpedition.

         awareness about  the global innovation gap,  promote digital inclu-
         sion, and spur action to close the digital divide.

         Tarija, Bolivia on 11-19 May.  They will operate SSB, CW, FT8 (F/H)
         on 160-6 metres,  as well as  SSB and FM  via  LEO satellites.  See

         Club Log's OQRS, or direct to LU1FM.
GI     - Once again the North West Group ARC  (MN0NWG)  is  running  special
         event station  GB0AEL  between 5 and 31 May  to commemorate the an-
         niversary of Amelia Earhart's transatlantic flight.  QSL via MI0HOZ
         (direct or bureau). On 20-21 May 1932,  Earhart  became  the  first
         woman to  fly nonstop and alone across the Atlantic, leaving Harbor
         Grace on  Newfoundland (Canada), and  landing  15 hours later  near
         Londonderry (Northern Ireland).
V4     - Tim, N5TCH will be active  holiday style as V4/N5TCH from  St Kitts
         (NA-104) on 10-17 May.  Most likely he will be QRV during his early
         morning hours. QSL via LoTW; paper cards will not be available.

3D2CCC ---> The DX Rebel Group's DXpedition to Conway Reef began on 28 April
at around 05.30 UTC.  To date, over 50,000 QSOs have been made, but Internet
access for uploading QSOs  to Club Log is very limited.  The 2-man team will
continue  to run  all the  stations  until the diesel fuel  supply  for  the
generators  is exhausted.  QSL via  Club Log's OQRS.  Updates  are posted to
https://www.facebook.com/rebeldxgroup.

5X     - Jack, NP2OR has been active as 5X3L from Kayabwe ("just a few steps
         from the  equator line"),  Uganda since 20 April,  and  will remain
         there until sometime in May. He will be QRV on 20, 10 and once in a
         while on 40 metres.  QSL via LoTW,  or direct via  Club Log's OQRS.
         Updates will be posted to https://hamradiosafari.blogspot.com/.
9X     - Harold, DF2WO  will be active again as  9X2AW  from Rwanda on  2-17
         May. He will operate CW, SSB and digital modes on the HF bands  and
         6 metres. QSL via M0OXO's OQRS. [TNX The Daily DX]
OX     - Bo, OZ1DJJ will be active again as OX3LX from Greenland between  26
         April and 9 May. In his spare time he will operate FT8, RTTY and CW
         from Kangerlussuaq (grid GP60),  Nuuk (grid GP44) and Paamiut (grid
         GP51). QSL via OZ0J; QSOs will be uploaded to LoTW and Club Log.
FT/G   - Marek, FH4VVK will be active as FT4GL  from Grande Glorieuse,  Glo-
         rioso Islands  (AF-011)  from  24 May to 19 June.  The most  recent
         activity from the islands dates back to 2009 (FT5GA),  and the Glo-
         rieuses are currently ranked  8th  on  Club Log's  DXCC Most Wanted
         List.  This one-man operation will be carried out in  parallel with
         Marek's professional activities.  He hopes to be QRV daily with two
         stations at the same time - one on FT8  and  one on SSB or RTTY (he
         lacks sufficient knowledge  of CW to manage a huge pile-up).  There
         will be no  activity on 6 metres, EME, or via satellite.  QSOs will
         be uploaded to  Club Log on a daily basis;  access to the  Internet
         will be available  for two hours a day,  from 18 to 20  local time.
         QSL via F4FTV (direct or bureau);  full LoTW upload will follow six
         months after the end of the DXpedition. Bookmark

この週末は、DXペディションでバンドが賑やかだった。
3G0YA(イースター島)のDXペディションをいろいろなバンドで追いかけた。
A5(ブータン王国)、TT8(チャド)、TX7(オーストラル諸島)のペディションは、この週末はFT8での運用が多かったように感じた。

425DX Newsから抜粋。

TT8    - Six operators of the  Italian DXpedition Team  (Franco I1FQH, Alfeo
         I1HJT, Tony I2PJA, Silvano I2YSB, Angelo IK2CKR and Stefano IK2HKT)
         will be active as TT8RR (SSB, CW and RTTY),  TT8XX (FT8)  and TT8TT
         (callsign for QSOs via QO-100) from Chad on 17-30 April.  They will
         run four stations on 80-6 metres,  plus  one station  dedicated  to
         satellite.  Operations will start on FT8  (F/H at first, and normal
         mode  on  standard frequencies  when the pileup  decreases),  other
         modes  will follow.  The hottest period  of  the  year  approaches
         (temperatures  expected to reach  43 degrees Celsius  in the shade)
         and the team has already taken measures  by procuring an additional
         backup power generator,  as the  on-site generator will not be able
         to run 24/7. QSL via I2YSB.  See http://www.i2ysb.com/idt/ for more
         information, band plan and OQRS for direct cards included.

CE0Y   - 3G0YA is the callsign issued  to the  18 April-6 May  DXpedition to
         Easter Island (SA-001)  [425DXN 1719].  Ben DL6FBL,  Win DK9IP  and
         Lutz DM6EE  will operate  SSB, FT8 and CW on 160-6 metres.  QSL via
         Club Log's OQRS  (preferred), or via DJ4MX. More information can be
         found on https://www.qrz.com/db/3G0YA.

A5     - Janusz, SP9FIH  and  Leszek, SP6CIK  will be active  from Bhutan as
         A52P and A52CI,  respectively,  from  19 April to 4 May.  They will
         operate  SSB, CW  and digital modes on  40-6 metres.  Their  QTH is
         located at about 3000 metres a.s.l., with a good short path opening
         to North America, Europe and Japan.  QSLs via Club Log's OQRS.  See
         https://a5.dxpeditions.org for more information.

FO/A   - Jeff, K5WE  and Craig, W5CCP will be active as  TX7W  from Raivavae
         (OC-114), Austral Islands on 16-30 April.  They will operate mainly
         CW and FT8  (multi stream mode, not F/H),  with some SSB, RTTY  and
         FT4, on 160-6 metres. QSL via Club Log's OQRS (preferred), LoTW, or
         direct to K5WE. Depending upon a reliable Internet connection, logs
         will be uploaded to Club Log daily, and Club Log's Livestream  will
         be enabled.  See  https://k5we.com/tx7w/  for more information  and
         updates.

4月6日 DX Worldから抜粋
UPDATE
With a small log upload so far, VP6G has been quite active on the higher bands since QRV on April 5th.

2月17日付 425DX News #1711から抜粋

VP6    - Gerben PG5M will be active as VP6G from Pitcairn Island (OC-044) on

         4-14 April. He will operate CW and FT8 on 40-10 metres: "I will run
         two stations (if antenna situation permits), primarily CW and addi-
         tionally FT8 using MSHV",  he says.  QSL via M0OXO's OQRS and LoTW.
         See https://dx.to/vp6g/ for more information.


この週末は、ハイバンドで聞こえたが信号が弱く、アメリカのパイルアップが壁となってQSOできなかった。
来週末に期待したい。
