EU-192. Operators Tom/SM3DMP, Ulf/SM3RAB and Tomas/SM3WMU will be active as SF2CW from Kataja/Inakari Island (an island shared
by Sweden and Finland) between July 1-3rd. Per QRZ.com:
"The island has been activated twice by two separate expeditions
from the Finnish side of the border. Both activations were performed during the winter under arctic conditions, both weatherwise and radiowise. A great number of EU-stations were worked, but not many contacts were made with NA, SA, AS and OC. We will try to make up for that during this summer time expedition....
"If You are an EU and have this IOTA worked before (OH10X or OH8AA), we ask You not to work us, at least not day 1 or 2. Main target is those parts of the world that had problems with the previous expeditions due to the winter time conditions."
Their working conditions will be a TS-590SG for CW and an IC-7100 for SSB with one or possibly two amps. Main bands will be 30, 20 and 17 meters. Maybe some 40m. Antennas will be verticals located very close to the water edge. The water being the brackish Gulf of Bothnia. QSL via ClubLog's OQRS or direct via SM3DMP.
