Support QRP CoA Everywhere

Tuesday 27 May 2014


For all you IOTA chasers... I'll be doing the solo qrp thing again from Sweden during the RSGB IOTA contest

Garpen Island which is also an active Light House. EU-037 Over on the right hand side of Sweden.
About 3 or 4 km from the mainland.

Satellite photo.. the station and antennas will be on the Northern 'spit'


It  will be a LONG call sign so when logging please for heavens sake get it right !

SM7/M1KTA/P (CW) or Sierra Mike Seven Stroke Mike One Kilo Tango Alpha Stroke Portable (SSB) I will be confirming qso by LoTW as soon as I am able, QSL cards will be direct buro cards will be very slow, please include $5 to cover postage.

I have confirmed that I will be using the shed/hut on the left and will use the whole shore line beyond for antennas. (vertical dipoles and maybe a VDA)

Garpen is a bit of a holiday day trip place some days when WX is nice so I'll grab food from a cafe on the island. If WX is bad I will probably get stuck on the island  so will keep making qso.

Should be qrv from early on the Saturday 26th (maybe 25th overnight) to last light on Sunday 27th

I will be using batteries and solar power but I will also have power with extension cable from next house.

Quick fly in, train and fly out.

See you in the contest.

ILLW serial is SE0004 no idea if that is what LH chasers need.
