The group of Martti, OH2BH; Pertti, OH2PM; Veijo, OH6KN; Antti, OH7EA and Juha, OH8NC from Radio Arcala (OH8X) will escape the Nordic ice and snow to provide you with a 5R8 on low bands and a zone 39 multiplier. Their destination will be Antananarivo, the Republic of Madagascar, and the callsign 5R8X will hit the bands from October 26 – November 10, 2010, including the CQWW SSB Contest.
The Arcalians - OH2BH, OH2PM, OH6KN, OH7EA and OH8NC - are traveling to this island nation in the Indian Ocean not only to provide a dual multiplier but to do a variety of things at once. In CQWW, they will be multi-op, single-TX while also making sure, with their awesome lineup of LF antennas, to offer a 5R8 on the low bands for those in need. Their low-band activity will last for two weeks, including CQWW plus the following weekend, with two stations expected to be on at prime hours.
OH2PM and OH6KN will dedicate their efforts to 160M and 80M. This activity is primarily targeted to satisfy global demand on the low bands. The team will be using a large field and a setup of vertical antennas on all low bands. WARC activity will also be provided. The 5R8X team will be using lightweight K3 radios by Elecraft and appreciate their support and cooperation. This operation will be conducted in collaboration with Ake, 5R8FU.
