Final preparations for the upcoming Sable Island DXpedition are being completed. Canadian authorities have approved the revised dates of 22-31 October. In order to minimize potential impact to the migratory bird population on Sable Island, we have settled on vertical dipole antennas made by “GAP Antennas”.
GAP has already shipped five, pre-drilled, ready-to-go, monoband vertical antennas for 10, 12, 15, 17, and 20 meters. These antennas should arrive in Halifax this week. In addition, we are shipping back-up radio transceivers to Halifax on Monday, October 8. Extra freeze-dried meals are also being shipped, in case our departure from Sable is delayed by weather conditions.
Now that Sable Island has become a national park, it is unclear what limitations, if any, will be placed on future requests for group operations. Even though, we are just a two-person team, we will do our best to provide a new country or new band-country to those in need of CY0. As previously advertised, our focus will be on 10M, 12M, and 15M, where the greatest demand for Sable Island exists.
