FROM THE WEBSITE OF VE3LYC AND PA3EXX:
Cezar/VE3LYC and Johan/PA3EXX will attempt a very challenging expedition to Wollaston islands (SA-031) and Diego Ramirez islands (SA-097) between approximately January 7 and 22, 2011. In demand by 98% of IOTA chasers, SA-031 currently ranks #6 on the Most Wanted IOTA list World Wide and #1 in South America, whereas SA-097 has never been activated. The plan is to operate for 4 days from Herschel Is (SA-031) and Gonzalo Is. (SA-097). However, weather and sea conditions can influence significantly this schedule. The team has retained for this trip the services of Thomas, an experienced skipper, with his 40 ft yacht, well equiped for Antarctic waters.
CE9/VE3LYC and CE9/PA3EXX
Frequencies and modes:
Frequencies: 15, 17, 20, 30 and 40m depending on the propagation conditions.
