Upcoming St. Pierre and Miquelon DXpedition Update

I have been in contact with Oliver OE5OHO and he was kind enough to give a reply concerning logistics of where to stay and operate  in FP land.  Being that my stay is only for 4 days, it would be wiser to stay in St. Pierre rather than take the boat to Miquelon unless other opportunities arise.  I also reached out to Eric KV1J and Jean Pierre FP5CJ.  Eric KV1J is going there in late February 2015.  Eric contacted me by email and offered some helpful tips.

Current Schedule:

July 8, 2015 - Leave Charlotte NC and Fly to Halifax, NS and drive to Prince Edward Island VY2 - about a 3 hour drive from Halifax.  Purchase tickets to St. Pierre while at Halifax.

July 9, 2015 - Start operations in the VY2TT station of K6LA.  There are 4 ops there that week - Phil AC4Q/VY2, Bill N4IQ/VY2, Bob ND7J/VY2 and me NY4G/VY2

I will attempt to set-up portable stations on the north beaches of Prince Edward Island apart from operations in VY2TT during the day.

July 10-12 - IARU HF Championship from VY2

July 14 - Drive down to Halifax very early in the morning

July 14 - Fly to St. Pierre - set up accomodations

July 15 - First full day operation in St. Pierre or Miquelon (still TBD as to where I will stay)

July 16-17 Holiday style operation in FP land

July 18 - break down and fly back to Halifax.  Fly connection to Charlotte NC.  Drive back to Travelers Rest SC
