Lance, W7GJ, will go this year to V6 to work 6 meters EME, and this is his mail announcing this new operation:
This year's dedicated 6m EME DXpedition will be from V6M in PK90va, August 26-September 3, 2015, in celebration of my 50 years of VHF DXing. I hope to surpass my record from last July's DXpedition to KH8, where I completed with 68 stations on 6m EME. Anyway, you know that you can count on me to be making a dedicated effort to work as many serious 6m operators as possible! I will not have any internet or email communications from V6, but I have published a planned operating schedule on my web page. Full details are here: http://www.bigskyspaces.com/w7gj/Micronesia2015.htm
This is a solo expedition, and is going to be an expensive one. It seems like I am beginning to run out of cheap rare places to go on 6m EME DXpeditions that are new DXCC for virtually all the contacts! Please consider making a contribution, as explained on my web page above, either direct by mail (to the address shown at the bottom of this email) or to my PayPal account (which is the same as this email address). MNI TNX!
Please call me if you do copy me on some terrestrial mode of propagation. If I am calling CQ on JT65A, I am probably aiming at the moon, so please answer me with the JT65A EME mode from WSJT9 or WSJT10 - NOT any HF JT65A program! With limited moon windows, I don't have time to shut down the EME operation and switch modes, so I will only answer callers who call using the proper JT65A version when I am calling CQ on EME with JT65A mode.
I don't expect to have any terrestrial ionospheric propagation but it you hear me on CW or SSB, please answer me on whatever mode I am using at that time. Please don't bother asking me for contacts on any other bands - I will be WAY overweight with my 6m gear, and will not be operating any bands other than 6m.
Hopefully this advance notice will provide adequate time for you to get your station geared up to connect with the first ever 6m EME activation of V6 ;-) If you have any questions about EME or JT65A, please look at the links on my website or email me for information. You can also find a large number of very helpful and experienced 6m EME operators available to help you through the Magic Band EME email group (subscription info below).
I hope to be able to give you another new DXCC on 6m soon! GL and VY 73, Lance.
