Scottish Islands Amateur Radio Challenge :

24-hour Scottish Islands Amateur Radio Challenge

Bob, GM0DEQ will be activating up to 15 Scottish islands within 24 hours in June using a sea plane as transport.

His callsign will be GB4DTD (Dawn To Dusk).

Activity will be on the HF bands, 40-10 metres.


The island list is subject to change due to a few factors governing their sea plane transport. The departure date will be subject to WX too, and will be from Monday, 14th June 2010, onwards as close to the longest day to maximize daylight flying.
