[NEWS UPDATE] Due to a short but very strong storm coming through the QTH earlier today, the 160m antenna is broken. It can be repaired but re-installation will take too long for only 2 more nights, so TO9W is QRT on 160.
DECEMBER 4 – on the scene with team TO9W (pictures credit W9MK)
We are pleased to announce details for the next TO9W activity from the beautiful island of Saint Martin. Activity will take place November 30 to December 9th, 2022. The 2022 team will include K9NU, N9EP, FS4WBS, W9AP and K9EL. Our goal is to make as many QSOs as possible on all bands and modes, with special emphasis on CW. We normally give priority to the 160, 80, 40 bands in that order, but with the increased sunspot activity, we will establish band priorities based on conditions at that time. The first two to three days are dedicated to the installation of antennas. We will operate during breaks and in the evenings the first few days. Antenna installation has priority. We will likely do more FT8 the first few days. We plan real-time uploads using the Club Log Live Stream software for Expeditions assuming a steady Internet connection. John, W9ILY, is our QSL Manager and will upload our logs to LOTW daily. We will be well supported by the excellent pilot team of K9NB, W9MK, AA9A and W9ILY. All requests for information, schedules, QSO verification and general comments should be addressed to TO9W2022@gmail.com. We will once again offer certificates for the most band-modes worked in various categories. Updates and photos will be published on our TO9W Facebook page.
