“So where shall we go this year for the DXpedition?”
“What about Tiree?”
“Good idea, but where is Tiree?”

And so the team from the “Black Country DX and Contest Group” find themselves out and about setting up station this year on the Scottish Isle of Tiree. From Thursday 13th September until Monday 17th September MS0OXE will be on air 24/7 and will continue on to Thursday 20th as bands dictate.

The team will be QRV on 160-10m, SSB, CW and RTTY. The team wants to give every operator the chance to work Tiree and additionally for their IOTA marathon scores.
