Isle of Mull, GS3PYE/P

Posted by Admin

Members of the Camb-Hams will once again be active as GS3PYE/P from the Isle of Mull between May 15-22nd. The Camb-Hams have been activating the Scottish Isles each year since 2008 and will be traveling to the Grasspoint, Isle of Mull, in the Scottish Inner Hebrides in 2015. Ten operators will be active on all bands and many modes from 4m to 80m, 2m & 70cm for Satellites and 2m & 23cm for EME. The HF bands will be covered by four simultaneous stations, while the 6m & 4m stations will have a great take-off towards the UK and Europe from the island's eastern edge in IO76EJ 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. 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 major social networks before, during and after the trip, you can check on progress and interact with the operators via their blog or through Twitter, Facebook and YouTube [links below]. 
 
Please check their Web page for details on how to arrange skeds on the more challenging bands, modes, VHF and EME. All links are available via: QSL via OQRS (info on QRZ.com) or M0VFC direct or via bureau. <facebook.com/CambHams> <twitter.com/g3pye> <youtube.com/CambHams>
