Question:

 

From Duncan

Hi Folks, I'm looking for a RTTY contact any band for my DXCC. Botswana has so fare eluded me! Please take a short look to the south east at Sun rise for New Zealand & Pacific stations. It's a polar path and very difficult for us with Europe and Japan calling. Thanks in advance, and good luck guys!  73

 

Answer:

 

Hi Duncan,

 

I know that some members of the team are very interested in data modes. I am sure that we will at some point be operating in RTTY I will pass this on to all the members of the team. We hope to work you.

 

Kind Regards

Question:

 

Dear A25UK-team,

I happily read that you will be QRV from A2! A2 has not been active on 160m for a longer time and for sure it is not only me hoping to catch you on 160m. Please dedicate some time for the top band on CW working split. Best propagation to Europe should be 2200 to 0200 UTC.

Many thanks in advance fro all your efforts .

Have fun in A2.

Best regards,

Bernhard DJ5MN

 

Answer:

 

Hi Bernhard,

 

Unfortunately I don’t operate in the CW portion of the band. However, with this in mind there are a couple of operators who specialise in CW such as Nick (G4FAL). I will pass on your request.
Best regards,

 

Giles M0TGV

 

Question:

 

6m operations + Lotw for A25UK would be great.

VY 73,

Nico

 

Answer:

Hi Nico,

Sorry for the wait for the reply. I can confirm that logs will be uploaded to LOTW when we return to the UK. For more information, please see the logs link on the left of this page. At the present moment in time, due to weight restrictions, it looks like we will not be taking a 6-meter antenna.

Best Reghards,

 

Giles M0TGV

 

Question:

 

Hi,

I've been looking for a A2 QSO on 10MHz for many years. Are you going to use a specific frequency on 30m? I'm asking to know where to park my VFO on April 13th. Good luck and have a nice trip, Timo - OH2BMH

 

Answer:

 

Hi Timo,

Thank you for your question. Unfortunately, I am unable to give an exact frequency. However, I can confirm, we will at some point be operating on the 30 Meters band. We look forward to hearing from you.

Best Regards

Giles M0TGV
