K6VVA/KL7 IOTA NA-004 (QRX'd)
After much serious deliberation of multiple factors, I have made
a strategic decision to QRX my scheduled NA-004 activation until
late Spring or early Summer 2019.
The sub-freezing temperatures during mostly dark hours now in this
70+ Degrees North Latitude Polar Bear part of KL7 are not friendly
to outside antenna repairs in the event of unforeseen problems.
And since propagation from NA-004 this month will be mostly on 40m,
I also believe too many Little Pistol IOTA Chaser QSOs would not
happen without availability of 20m as the primary band to all Geo-Areas.
I am not looking forward to canceling all my plane flights, but believe
this temporary QRX will benefit more of those who need NA-004 when the
activation is rescheduled.
This is a (QRX) postponement, and NOT a cancellation !!!
Operation: Primarily CW mode on 20m, 30m, 40m * (some SSB)
Equipment: TS-480HX (200w) + Vertical w/16 Sloping Radials
(And: Extra TS-480, power supply, computer, antenna parts)
NOTE: Partial log uploads *may* take place during the Expd.
IOTA Credit will be ONLY via iota-world.org "QSO Matching"
once the Expd is over, and final "Validation" by IOTA LTD.
(Only AFTER the Expedition is over)
