Seven operators from six US States–led by Scott, Andersen, NE1RD of Acton, MA–will travel to the small island of Montserrat in late January, 2007 to activate that island in a most unique way. Instead of big antennas and tons of equipment, this DXpedition will instead focus on lightweight gear and portable operations. According to the group’s web site, “Even at the bottom of the sunspot cycle we anticipate reaching every corner of the globe.”
The DXpedition plans to operate from beaches, hilltops, and the Montserrat Volcano Observatory. In addition to CW and SSB, data modes such as PSK31, RTTY, and even slow scan TV will be active on all bands 160-6m. Each DXpedition member will be using their own Monstserrat-issued call sign.
