Large multi-operator, multi-stationDXpedition to St Brandon, 3B7 is over here...
3B7C is on the air and even from first activity day they are operates on 160m band!
They will be active from 07-24 September 2007.
The Five Star DXers Association team, which brought you
the 9M0C, D68C and 3B9C DXpeditions, is active from
St Brandon now.
This web site http://www.3b7c.com/
will carry all the information about the
expedition, including log search, QSL requests and details
on frequencies and modes.
160m band equipment:
Titanex V160S 85 foot vertical
In addition to the above we will have a number of receiving antennas including Beverages, loops, dipoles etc. We hope to experiment with a new design for LF reception.
The 3B7C Team are proud to announce the following operators which will be assisting the DXpedition. Please click on the thumbnail picture of each operator to view their biography. Please be aware that this page contains a large number of pictures, and may take some time to load on a low speed line.
3B7C Frequencies and Modes
3B7C plans to operate on the following frequencies:
We will operate on the above modes and frequencies. The frequencies are a guide.
We will nearly always work split frequency and will regularly announce the frequencies on which we are listening.
We will only make contacts on our transmitting frequency during the last few days of the DXpedition if the pile-ups have disappeared.
We will also use slow CW toward the end of our expedition, to allow newcomers to Morse Code to make a contact with us.
Listen to the operator carefully. Each has been briefed to give the 3B7C callsign at least after every two QSOs and to announce the listening frequencies every five QSO's.
We will not work by numbers; we feel that with good ears and equipment this is quite unnecessary.
Please click on the links below according to your QSL requirements:
FSDXA does not collect or retain QSL cards. Will amateurs requesting QSL cards, either direct or via the bureau, please try NOT to send a separate card for each QSO. A typed, printed or hand-written list of all QSOs on the reverse of the card is preferred.
QSO data error policy
To avoid flooding QSL bureau with unwanted cards, we will not QSL unless we are requested to do so by one of the above means. When we do receive a QSL request, we will respond 100%, as defined above, provided the QSO is correct in our log.
Well what we can tell more? As its FOC participated DX-pedition we can expecting high-end operation "concert" on the bands.
First night I slept during their time so I do not know how they went thru to EU...
There is short help using the DX-Cluster OH2AQ but Your band reports from the band are welcomed !
