NIck G4OOE and I are embarking on a mission next week to SOTA Complete Belgium and Luxembourg. We start on Saturday morning after leaving the ferry in Zeebrugge with ON-027 Pottelberg. From there we plan to make an anticlockwise circuit of Belgium, Luxembourg and the Maastrict area of The Netherlands to take in PA-002 and PA-003. We will also activate the border summit of F/NO-047 on Saturday, and if we have time on our last day, two German summits on our way back to Europoort where we will catch the ferry back to Hull.
Nick will be taking care of 40m CW and SSB whilst I will take care of 30m CW, 20m CW and SSB. If Nick is still working the 40m band and I have worked 20m down to nothing and there is free time I will try calling on the 17m band. Operating time on each summit will be a maximum of one hour to accommodate the number of planned activations.
After hearing ON6ZQ working split succesfully a few weeks ago on CW, listening up 1 KHz ± we will also be operating the same way. So please do not call us on our transmit frequency on CW as we will not be listening there. We will check our TX frequency for activity before we start up and close down on that band. On SSB we will transmit and receive on the same frequency.
