A small group of 3 like minded DXer’s have come together to form the Lundy DX Group and have obtained the Club call sign of MX0LDG.
The first activation of the group will be from Lundy Island EU-120 from the 11th – 16th October 2012.
They will be running 2 stations, 3 where possible, on all bands from 40m through 6m, on SSB with the possibility of some data modes from 06:00 hrs to 00:00 hrs each day. The islands electricity is turned off between 00:00 hrs and 06:00 hrs every night. This will be sleep time for the ops.
The equipment to be used will be a Elecraft K3 with a KPA500 amp, a Kenwood TS590s with a Expert 1K amp (400W) and a IC706 as a backup radio/3rd station.
Antennas will be 2 x G3TXQ Hexbeams supplied and built by Ant, MW0JZE, the main sponsor of the activation and a 1/4 wave vertical for 40m.
Team Members: John, M5JON, Peter, M0ILT, Ant, MW0JZE.

16/10/2012 – Update: Stuck on island for another day. WX is bad so no boats sailing. Helicopter does not have any pilots so we fly out tomorrow morning. We have one station still running with a 40m 1/4 wave with several radials. The Vertical tunes well on 15m and are transmitting on 21.255 for a few more hours. Just over 5k in the log and all will be uploaded to LoTW and clublog soon.
Many thanks for working us. MX0LDG (M5JON, M0ILT & MW0JZE)
