We will run FT8 on 50316 in DXped mode. If there is any sign of life, we will CQ on 50.110 CW.
We will be using WSJT-X V1.9 for the DXpedition, mostly in the “Fox and Hounds” DXped mode. Look for us to start on standard mode and post “E6Y Fox Mode” for a few minutes before we QSY to the DXped frreq.
If you’re unfamiliar with DXped mode, you need WSJT-X V1.9. Please read Gary ZL2IFB’s excellent article on WSJT-X, in particular, section 11 which deals with DXped (“Fox and Hound”) mode.
We won”t know if we’re permitted to operate on 60 metres until we pick up our licence the day we arrive. We will post here and Tweet to advise if we can, the frequencies we can use and the power level permitted. Any 60m operation is likely to occur towards the end of our trip.
We have now received the LOTW certificate.
We’ll be using Twitter during the DXpedition, so please follow @Niue_E6Y
Messages will appear in the left side bar of this website.
Our call sign will be E6Y. We are still waiting for a copy of the licence to see if we can operate on 60mb.
This year, we’re off to Niue in October. We arrive in E6 on October 6th and fly out on the 16th. We will enter the Oceania SSB & CW legs as a multi 2 operation.
There will possibly be some FT8 operation. This depends on the conditions of our licence.
Same goes for 60m operation.
