Equipment

Each stations that will be set up on the island will be able to communicate in the 3 different modes. Operators and stations must be versatile. Each operating position will have an amplifier and a CW/RTTY interface.

In order to maximize the configuration of the location and more specifically the proximity of the ocean we intend to use monoband vertical antennas as well as VDA that have proven to give excellent results during top DXpeditions in the last few years. They also allow for a quick setup, which is an important criterion for a team of 6 people on location for only 10 days.
