The Black Country DX & Contest group will be QRV from Fair Isle, IOTA EU-012, from the 9TH to the 15th September 2015.
We expect to be QRV from 18:00 UTC on the 9th to 16:00 UTC on the 15th September 2015.
We will be on 10m – 40m in CW, RTTY, SSB and some PSK.
Due to no mains power throughout the night we will QRT each night around 2330 local and QRV each morning from 0730 local. Hence, no 160 or 80 meters.
We will have 3 stations on the air at all times from 0730 till 2330 each day from the 10th to 14th September.

Given the remoteness of Fair Isle the team are pleased to report that they have been able to upload the log to Club Log and LoTW directly from the Island.
On the evening of the 10th, Simon reported that they are viewing the Aurora Borealis. On the downside this means that band conditons are very poor at this time.
