Island activities:
EU-010. Members of the Camb-Hams will be active as GS3PYE/P from the Isle of Lewis between April 26th and May 3rd. The Camb-Hams have been activating the Scottish Isles each year since 2008
and will be travelling to the Isle of Lewis in the Scottish Outer Hebrides in 2014.
Thirteen operators will be active on all bands and many modes from 4m to 80m, 2m & 70cm for Satellites and 2m & 23cm for EME between April 26th and May 3rd. The HF bands will be covered by five simultaneous stations, while the 6m & 4m stations will have a great take-off towards the UK and Europe from the island's northern tip in IO68 square.
All stations will be able to run at the full UK power limit. EME operations will use 150W to 55 elements on 23cm and 400W to 17 elements on 2m, primarily on JT65 but also available for CW skeds - if your station is big enough.
Satellite operations on 2m & 70cm will use X-Quad antennas and a fully automatic Az/El tracking system. Activity is planned on AO-7 (mode B), VO-52, FO-29, SO-50 & AO-73. Contest operations will take place in the
RSGB 70MHz UKAC on April 29th.
A number of the group is planning to make an extra trip to operate as GS6PYE/P from the Shiant Isles (EU-112). They are aiming for afternoon/ early evening operations on April 28th, but may switch to April 30th if the weather is bad. The group will be active on HF mobile and APRS as they travel, starting on April 25th. All the up-to-date plans and progress will be on <>.
Most importantly, this is a group of good friends doing what they enjoy, so please give them a call and enjoy the trip with them. Active on the
