DXpedition Announcement: Svalbard, July 2015

From 10th-17th July 2015, I will be one of six operators activating the JW5E shack on Svalbard.

We’ll be operating on 40m-10m (and maybe some 6m if conditions allow), mainly on SSB and CW, using JW/{homecall}.

We won’t arrive in Longyearbyen until late in the evening of Friday 10th, and we depart very early in the morning on Friday 17th, so in practice we’ll be QRV for about six days.

Please remember that Svalbard has midnight sun for about four months, so it won’t get dark while we’re there. That means that we’re expecting 40m and 15m+ to be very difficult.

QSL will be via Clublog OQRS (please don’t send paper cards). We will be swapping operator at times, so please ensure you log the correct home call – don’t rely on an old spot from the cluster.
