"Hello EMErs,
everything is ready for the 3B9 Rodrigues Isl. DXpedition.
At last we have received all the permits from the authorities in Mauritius.
The call 3B9EME for V-UHF and for HF is confirmed. Locator MH10qh.
Two groups will operate simultaneously, with preference to the most difficult communications, ie EME.
After much work we can announce that we'll be active with this setup:
144 MHz with 2x8 xpol, preamplifier gift of WA2ODO, amplifier Italab 1kw (Tnx Nico ITB), ICOM IC-7000.
432 MHz with 1 homemade LFA antenna 23 elements, yet to be found preamplifier, amplifier Italab 600w (Tnx Nico ITB), ICOM IC-7000.
50 MHz with homemade LFA antenna 5 elements, amplifier ACOM 1000, homebuilt preamp MGF1302, Kenwood TS-590 (Tnx Giorgio DAE).
For HF, pse see our website http://www.ari.verona.it/veronadxteam/3b9_2013.htm and the main DX bulletins.
Is our intention to operate on 6m, 2m and 70 cm EME till 15° elevation, over 15° will operate only on 2m and 70cm EME. We’ll have 2 stations active simultaneously, if no mutual interferences problems.
We'll try to have an internet connection, although slow.
The flight will depart on September 1 at 17,45 (IT time), and we'll arrive in Rodrigues on September 2 at 20,50 (Rodrigues time). I think we'll start with the operations on moonrise of September 4.
Frequencies: 144,130, 432.090 and 50.190. We'll call always in the even period. (1st) Operating tips on http://www.ari.verona.it/veronadxteam/3b9_2013.htm
