YI9PSE - Iraq, April 2 - 12

I just voted for what bands/modes I need Iraq on (RTTY plus all bands except 20-M) and I noticed many WVDXA members had also voted. To vote, click on the "Survey" link on their website - YI9PSE. This should be a great DX'pedition to pick up many needed band/mode counters. They are planning to use FIVE complete stations complete with IC-7600 transceivers and Acom amps. Antennas include a 3-L SteppIR, 2-L SteppIR, Force 12 C3S, SteppIR Vertical, 1/4 wave verticals for 30, 40, 80 and 160-M, and a 300-foot Beverage. That's some very workable stations. With Iraq being some 6400 miles from us, it's a little difficult to work but the class of operators and the quality of equipment on this DX'pedition makes it look very good. The website will have an online log and QSL's will be uploaded to LoTW in late 2010. With FIVE complete stations operating all bands from 160 to 10-M (CW, SSB, & RTTY) this should satisfy the demand for Iraq for many folks. GL to all WVDXA members in the pileups.

Hi Clark and everyone. Glad to find your site. Great product. I used to live in CHS in South Hills. Was just a few feet under the highest point in the city according to the topo maps, Loudon Heights Road and Thomas Circle. We are in Memphis now. Very active DXing both HF and VHF/UHF. Only need Bouvet for a clean sweep. I miss Charleston. I'm glad to see you have such an active DXing community. Listen for me on the bands.
