New IOTA on Ice DXpedition We are proud to announce that a new IOTA island will be activated for the
first time by a small international team during this very cold winter with
local temperatures on the island dropping to around -20C.
Kataja/Inakari Island (Inakari Island coordinates: Lat: 65° 41' 49.4460" Lon: 24° 10' 5.0460") has been added to the list by the IOTA Committee in
October 2018 as EU192.
Martti-OH2BH, Nigel-G3TXF, Niko-OH2GEK and Gerben-PG5M will be travelling by snow mobiles several kilometers out over the frozen seas of the Bothnian Bay to set up camp on Inakari Island, the Finnish part where they will use an abandoned fisherman’s refuge. As Inakari Island is part of the Bothnian Bay National Park the party need to obey several related restrictions, but they have been successful in dealing with them all. https://julkaisut.metsa.fi/assets/pdf/lp/Esitteet/peramerieng.pdf
From 7-11 February, we will be running two stations simultaneously across
80-40-30-20-17-15 meters, operating CW and SSB. Call sign is OH10X and
QSL via PG5M and using Club Log. Log search is available on Club Log.
We will provide daily posts on www.dx.to to keep you updated on progress and on the conditions on the island.
