YO3HJV: Isola D'Elba activation - IOTA: EU-028

The Elba vacation has finished... Now I am in Firenze but no unpacking the radio... The hotel policy do not allowed radio operation from room.
This evening i will be in Bologna in order to catch the fly to Bucharest tomorrow morning.
I will post my consideration from Elba operations here on a separate post.
Also, on I will post some of the most beautiful pictures i take in this vacation.


Between 21st of July to 27th of July, I will be on vacation on Elba Island (IOTA EU-028).
Lat:42:49:33N (42.82596)
Lon:10:23:24E (10.38987)

I will work on SSB on 7.060 Mhz, 14.260, 18.128, 21.260, 24.950, 28.460 and 28.560 MHz and 50.110Mhz , under the callsign:


The rig :

-FT857D transceiver;

-Alinco DM-330MVE power supply for full 100W output;

-Horizontal wire dipole for NVIS on 40m and multiband;

-LDG Z-100 Automatic antenna tuner;

-IBM Thinkpad X40 for logbook.

The QSO's will count for IOTA Awards and DCI Awards.

To confirm a QSO, I will use e-qsl service and a special printed QSL Card.

I will also confirm SWL reports via Bureau.

I don't know yet if the QSL card will be sent direct or via Bureau. TBAL.

I don't know if I will have a reliable internet connection but If so, the e-qsl will be sent instantly direct from HRD Logbook.

I will try to setup the antenna for NVIS operation on 40m band in order to give a chance for close european stations to have a QSO with me.

You can ask for sked here, by a short comment. I will try to make the qso's according to this sked askings.

Remember that I am in holiday so... don't be angry if I skip a sked! Please...

You can find more informations of IOTA Program and EU-028 here.
