MSØINT

June 18th - 21st 2010

In a Pan-European project, SMØMDG Bjørn, EA3NT Christian, EA2TA George, F4BKV Vincent , IZ7ATN Simon and leader MMØNDX Col will – weather permitting – try to be active from the remote North Atlantic island group of the Flannans 20 miles north west of the Outer Hebrides. Activated in 1989, 1995, 1999 and 2002, the mysterious Flannan Isles are certainly a much needed but extremely difficult to access IOTA.

Purpose

The purpose of this expedition is to put Flannan Islands EU-118 on the air to give all island chasers world-wide the chance to get this rare island group logged, with a special focus on areas where EU-118 is in extreme demand.

Expedition goals
  • On the air Fri June 18, 2 stations 24-hrs (possibly 3 stations in daylight)
  • All bands from 80-6 meter, both SSB and CW
  • Pay special attention to JA demand of EU-118
  • End operations at Mon June 21
  • Return Safely to Stornoway
