REALTIME BAND CONDITIONS WEB SITE <www.bandconditions.com>:
The purpose of this experimental Web site is to provide 24-7-365 actual
(REALTIME) band condition information to CW QRPp, QRPe and CW/SSB for
Contesters interested in increasing their scores. It can also be of
benefit to other Radio Amateurs to determine band conditions for Nets
and casual QSO's. This information is NOT based on any software pre-
dictions or any kind of satellite based readings. It is based on a
new Ionospheric sounding method called 'HF Ionospheric Interferometry'
which operates very similarly to the PolSAR system used by NASA.

S7, SAO TOME AND PRINCIPE. Operators Lee/WW2DX, Ray/W2RE and Pat/N2IEN
will be active as S9TM from Praia between November 28th and December 1st.
The team is planning on taking a WRTC tri-band yagi for 10/15/20 as well
as a OCF for the lower bands. They will have an Expert 1.3K amp with them
for that station. The second station will be K3/KPA500 that will be used
on the 30/17/12m bands. A third station will be setup for LEO satellites
and they are going to attempt 2m EME, but this is new territory for this
group so don't set expectations too high. They will be posting to Twitter
<https://twitter.com/@ww2dx> and possible live streaming using periscope.
QSL via LoTW and paper cards to NR6M.
S79C FINAL PRESS RELEASE. All 6 operators have now returned safely to their
homes after many hours of traveling. We achieved what we set out to do -
and this was to put Coetivy Island on the air for the 1st time. Coetivy
Island is one of the new 11 IOTA groups that was added in July 2014 at
the 50th IOTA convention in Windsor, UK.
Coetivy Island is an active open prison and a rehabilitation center for
Drug abusers. It is 180 miles from anywhere and is only accessible via the
IDC (Islands Development Committee) who have full control of the island.
We were limited to a maximum of 6 persons and had to use the IDC private
airplane charter. The last 180 miles of our project cost over $20,000!
Early on in our planning stages we began a vast sponsoring program. We
needed the help of the IOTA/DX community to help to offset these high
costs. Many DX Clubs and foundations gave assistance for which we are
most grateful. Without the help of all individuals, this project would
not have happened. We had a clear vision of what our goals were, we
always intended to maximize the number of Uniques to give this New IOTA
to as many as possible. 9,808 Unique callsigns were logged!!! We also
realized that regular S7 was most wanted on the US West Coast where we
maximized our antenna farm to empathize into this area during limited
openings. In total, we worked 6,660 North American stations netting 31%
of all QSOs. Special thanks to the Western Washington DX Club who was
the only North American Club to help fund our project.
On Tuesday 17/Nov/15 at 18:00 UTC all 6 stations began CQing altogether.
Clive, 3B8CW, was the 1st into the log on 17m SSB. Our stations were planned
to enable us to be QRV with 2 stations per band. S79C went QRT at 02:19 on
22/Nov/15 on 30m CW with AA4BQ being the last in the log. Altogether a
total of 21,541 QSOs in 146 DXCCs were worked. The team noted excellent
pile-up behavior from all Continents and maximized our QSO count on all
open bands. We encountered daily electricity outages and often had to QRT
to interact with prisoners and inmates.
All supporting documentation has already been submitted, so therefore,
special thanks to Roger G3KMA and the IOTA committee who have already
approved and validated this operation. Our logs are now uploaded to CLUBLOG
and our OQRS facility is already buzzing with requests. We hope to begin
the initial QSL mailing in early - mid January, just in time for the IOTA
Honor Roll update. Logs will be uploaded to LoTW in the coming days once
the inevitable few log errors are corrected.
Sincere thanks to all our sponsors, to the DX Clubs and Foundations listed
below and to our corporate sponsors. Your help is what made our success - T=
Although S79C is now QRT, our work still continues with publications &
presentations and also, for our QSL manager Charles M0OXO, whose work is
now just beginning! Tnx Charles.
All information is available at af119new.com.
On behalf of EA3NT, MM0NDX, PA3EWP, SP5APW & VK5CE, vy 73. We could not
have asked for a better team!
As with all DXpeditioners, plans are already underway for yet another
new one! Stay Tuned!
