We will have the first time high power stations for 2m EME in Ogasawara. As you know, some Japanese beginners tried QRP EME at the starting point because we have two hurdles to get the high power station license. One is clearing Safety Guidelines for Use of Radio Waves. Two is the station inspection. Big problem for us is the inspection in Ogasawara because it is isolated islands from JA. However, we will be able to get formal licenses of high power for 2m EME.
EquipmentsWe will use 4 by CD's 211 (4x11ele, H-pol only, full AZ/EL by arms strong), 500W HPA, mast mounted preamp and GPS time base.
Locationhe Grid locator is QL17cc.
We have a mountain to East direction. So, we will have short time window only for U.S. and Americans. For EU, we have no problem and we will be able to work till our moonset.
QRV Plan6m EME: We will announce to N0UK chat when QRV.
2m EME: We will work random QSO by JT65B. We are always TX first on 144.075 and RX on 144.075/144.115.
LoggerIt is too much expensive for Internet connection in Ogasawara. But we will try to login N0UK logger and DX cluster while operating EME.
Pilot StationIf we will be not able to make the Internet connection in Ogasawara, JH0MHE Shiro will co-work with us as the Pilot station and He will post our announcement to N0UK logger and others.
