(Relayed from KV1J who is having trouble posting)
I will be operating from the island of Miquelon (Grid GN17)
from October 26 through November 2 as FP/KV1J. The dates
may shift a bit depending on the weather and available
transportation. This is a French territory (Collective) off
the coast of Newfoundland.
I will be mostly on the low bands but plan to take
breaks and work as many of the FM satellite passes
that I can. I have AO-51, AO-27, SO-50, SO-67, and
HO-68 programmed with Doppler shifts in an FT-817.
I will be doing this outside with an Arrow 146/437-10
The weather can get rough where I am and the winds
are high so I will do my best under the conditions.
I have a digital audio recorder tied to both the TX and
RX audio so I will do the final logging when I return inside.
I was on during from this spot in November 2009 using
the AO-51 bird with good results. This trip, I hope to try
other satellites when they are available.
Once I am on the island it gets busy with setup and the
low bands so it is not practical to do scheds but I will
favor the daylight passes since they are easier to operate
I have a web page at -
for more information and I will try to put some status
information there when I can. I do have internet access
but it is not always available.
I will be traveling via the island of Saint Pierre. If I get on
from there, I will be grid GN16. Still operating as FP/KV1J.
