Good morning fellow satelliteers!
Just a reminder that an Argentinian team featuring LU3YK, LU5FF, LU7VB, LU7YS, LU8YD and LU9VEA will be active from San Cristobal, Galapagos Islands (Grid EI59) as *HC8LUT* between November 29 to December 8, 2017.They plan to operate HF-6m and satellites. The focus on satellites will be on AO-7, FO-29 and FM satellites (including AO-91 if available).
I have been in contact with Alejandro, LU8YD, and he informed me that they will use a pair of Icom IC-7000, through a 5 elements VHF and 10 elements UHF yagis. Satellite ops will be secondary since the radios will be shared with the HF operation. They will try work as many passes as they can, with good coverage towards the United States.
Please keep it civil and avoid working them repeatedly. Let's give everybody a chance!
I will be in touch with the team during the expedition and will try to pass as much information as I can.
Confirmations will be available on LoTW, Clublog and EQSL.
Have a great day
