IOTA DXpedition to Nosy BeNosy Be means 'big island' in the Malagasy language and Nosy Be, not far from the mother island Madagascar, will be the next destination of the Mediterraneo International DX Club (MDXC) Team!
Look for leader Antonio, IZ8CCW, and the co-leader Gabriele, I2VGW, to head-up a team of operators to be active as 5R8M from Nosy Be Island (AF-057), thanks from the help of a local friend, Michele, 5R8UI, between October 20th and November 4th.
Activity will take place during 16 days and 14 nights. According to their
evaluations, they are confident to give a lot of DXers a chance to work
this country (and IOTA) on the Lower Bands, 30/17/12m and especially on the Digital modes.
The 16 operators will be an international team from countries.
Currently, the operators listed are:
CW - Eric/ON7RN, Feri/YO5OED and Karl/OE3JAG
SSB - Ant/IZ8CCW (Leader), Michel/F5EOT, Steve/IZ5GST and Michele/IK5ZUI
RTTY - Gabriele/I2VGW (Co-Leader), Marco/IZ2GNW, YL Manu/IZ8IYL,
Mario/IK4MTK and Henri/F1HRE
Pilot Stations - Don/N1DG (USA), Rino/IK7JTF (Europe) and Sergio/IK0FTA
QSL Manager is Giuliano, IK2VUC, for direct or Bureau QSLs. However,
there will be an OQRS available on the Web page below. LoTW files will
be uploaded by the end of May 2015.
Activity will be on 160-6 meters using CW, SSB and RTTY. They plan to
have four stations on the air around the clock using dipoles, Inverted L,
verticals and Spiderbeams.
