CY0, Sable Island DXpeditionWhile the event is still in the planning stages, Murray, WA4DAN, has received permission from Parks Canada for a one-day DXpedition to CY0 Sable Island, slated for September 8th, 2014.
The second operator will be Randy, N0TG, also a veteran DXpeditioner with prior experience on Sable Island.
They will be using the Sable Island Amateur Radio Station that he and the CY0P team left behind after their venture as CY0P in October 2013. Murray will be QRV on SSB and Randy will operate CW.
Antennas are expected to be 17m and 20m Yagis.
At least one of the two stations will be QRO.
As usual, travel will be via Maritime Air Charter using their Britten-Norman Islander. Hours of operation will be limited by the requirement to fly during daylight hours.
With luck, the DXpedition (proposed callsign CY0C) will operate from
approximately 1300-2100z on September 8th. Trip planning and logistics
support are being provided by Gary, VE1RGB, who has been the logistics
coordinator for three previous CY0 ventures and was an operator at CY0P.
On this trip, he will not be operating, but will instead be providing
technical and operational support to Murray and Randy, and to the Sable
Island ARS. Gary will be the QSL manager for CY0C. Over-night stays on
Sable Island are currently not being authorized because of renovations
being carried out to Parks Canada facilities on the island.
