Spratly Island DXpedition

Steve, 9M6DXX, reports that the 9M4SLL Spratly Island DXpedition will take place between March 10-18th.

Unfortunately Christian, EA3NT, had to withdraw from the DXpedition due
to work reasons, but he has been replaced by two experienced Hungarian
DXpeditioners: Pista HA5AO and George HA5UK.

The other operators are John 9M6XRO, Steve 9M6DXX, James 9V1YC, Don G3BJ, Tony KM0O and Ben N6MU/DJ0YI (total 8 operators).

9M4SLL will operate with five stations simultaneously at peak times,
using mainly Elecraft K3 and K2 transceivers plus full legal power linear
amplifiers on all stations. The antennas will all be verticals and all
will be sited within a few meters of the ocean. In particular we will have
a Titanex V160E 27m (87ft) high vertical for 160 and 80m with a Pennant
antenna for RX on those bands.

Activity will be on 160 to 10m, CW, SSB and RTTY. There will be no 60 meters operation as that is not permitted by the Malaysian licence.

The QSL Manager is Tim, M0URX, and direct or bureau QSLs can be requested by OQRS from his website at

Logs will be uploaded to LoTW as soon as possible after the end of the DXpedition - within a few days. We plan to upload to an online log once per day during the DXpedition.

Further information, including suggested operating frequencies, can be
found on the 9M4SLL page on M0URX's website at
