United Radio QSL Management are proud to support the 2009 Rockall EU-189 Expedition. For the teams involved we will provide QSL Management services. Col MM0NDX explains:
Having been in daily contact with Island Man/Andy Strangeway, I fully appreciate just how much time and energy has gone in to arrive at this particular point of the Rockall 2009 expedition. Below is a press release issued on Island Man’s Rockall website. Col, MM0NDX http://dx-hamspirit.com/
Isle of Rockall, EU-189
Press Release http://islandmanrockallexpedition2009.com/
I appreciate it would appear that there has been little news in the last few weeks but I can assure everyone that things have certainly been moving. I expect before Christmas that news of transportation to Rockall being secured will be announced.
Working in tandem with my friend Col, MM0NDX I am acutely aware of the interest shown in EU-189. With this in mind I would like to invite radio hams, be they individuals or clubs, to contact me with their proposals to be part of this exciting expedition. I require the following information to be included in the proposal.
The maximum and minimum number of berths that would be required.
A CV of previous radio activations of those that would be involved.
Any information of additional skills that would strengthen the depth of the expedition, for example any crewing of yacht/boat, tender experience or climbing ability.
The countries who have so far shown the greatest interest in the expedition are Belguim, France, Japan, Norway, UK and USA. I would especially like to hear from Japanese radio hams as not one operator from Japan has ever contacted Rockall. EU-189 is the most wanted IOTA in Japan.
Once the transport has been secured, the team for the expedition will be selected and dates announced. A website can be built especially for the radio hams and a QSL manager is already secured should you require these extras.
