EU-192

For three days at the beginning of July, operators SM3DMP, SM3RAB and SM3WMU will activate one of the latest additions to the IOTA program. EU-192 is an island shared by Sweden and Finland. The island has been activated twice by two separate expeditions from the Finnish side of the border. Both activations were performed during the winter under Arctic conditions, both weather-wise and radio-wise. A great number of EU-stations were worked but not many contacts were made with NA, SA, AS and OC. The team, operating as SF2CW, will try to make up for that during this summer time expedition.

NA-187

At long last, I finally received an email with the "Green Light" from a primary Government Agency needed to activate IOTA NA-187 (subject to certain restrictions).  The email has now been forwarded to the final decision making entity in the process.

Access to NA-187 is forbidden during the seabird nesting period of March through August, so I am looking at a SEPT-OCT time period if all goes well.

Due to the restrictions and poor solar cycle condx from the (Real) West Coast NA especially to EU via the Polar Path, this presents various challenges.  My "ATNi FIRST" PROTOCOL Operating Strategy will be absolutely critical to insure as many serious IOTA Chasers on the current 2019 IOTA Honour Role & Annual Listing in need of ONE QSO for credit with NA-187 have a possibility to make it into the log.  The details are in 7 LANGUAGES at:
