K6VVA/KL7 Point Lay Barrier Island

FIRST TIME IOTA ACTIVATION ADVISORY ***

IOTA: NA-242 (Point Lay Barrier Island)

DATES: 22 July - 26 July (2011)

CALLSIGN: K6VVA/KL7

OPERATORS: Rick, K6VVA & Mike, K9AJ

DATES: 22 July - 26 July (2011)

QSL ROUTE: ONLY via N6AWD (Direct or Bureau) - Do NOT send QSLs to K6VVA !!!


Primarily CW on 40/30/20/17m. Dates may change slightly depending upon local WX.
The objective is a minimum QRV of 3 days within the indicated date range.
There is a slight possibility for a brief NA-172 activation as K9AJ/KL7 right after NA-242 before we leave the North Slope of Alaska. Info updates will be posted to Latest News section of the NA-242 Expedition website.

Due to the possibility of polar bears at NA-242, we have purchased electric bear fences, bear spray, and must hire one or more local "Bear Guards" with heavy firepower for 24/7 protection.
This will be a dangerous and extremely costly IOTA expedition also due to the mostly air transportation of equipment.

NA-242 in July is "The Main Event" after K6VVA warmup expeditions to NA-184 (April), NA-066 (May with NI6T) and NA-091 (June with W6NV).

FYI & 73...
