I’m starting a new thread for the VK - NA S2S experiment starting at 1930 UTC Saturday 11 March 2017, or 06:30 am local time (VK east coast) Sunday 12 March 2017. VK1 first light is 19:33 UTC while sunrise is 20:00 UTC. I will operate QRO from Mt Ginini VK1/AC-008 at 1760 metres ASL (8 points) for a 2 hour window 19:30 to 21:30 UTC (06:30 to 08:30 local time).
Today I raised a VK - NA S2S thread at the VK SOTA Yahoo site where Andrew VK1DA and Warren ZL2AJ have signed up. Both Andrew and Warren are CW and SSB operators.
Since November 2016 I have seen numerous posts in a range of threads asking for an event like this (VK - NA S2S) to kick off. I’m keen to see serious interest from the enthusiastic North American SOTA activators and chasers. To encourage others, please post your ‘W’ activator alert early.
