EG8, CANARY ISLANDS (Special Event). Look for special event station EG8ISS
to be on the air between February 12th and March 11th, from Las Palmas,
Gran Canaria (AF-004, DIE S-005, WLOTA L 0969). Activity is to celebrate/
publicize the first ARISS (International Space Station) contact with one
of the "Institute for Technological Development and Innovation in Communi-
cations" (IDeTIC) facilities on campus. The special event station will be
on the HF bands, 40-10 meters, using CW, SSB, RTTY,*PSK31* and SSTV. Also,
activities are planned for VHF (2m FM local and R7 repeater) and the
satellites (AO-27, SO-50, AO-51 and VO-52). There is a special QSL card
designed for this event that will be automatically mailed to your QRZ.com
address. Please, keep in mind that they aren't highly skilled radio
operators, so be patient if there are any pileups. More info is available
on the QRZ.com under EG8ISS. A Twitter page is also available at:
