The CY9C DXpedition to St. Paul Island, scheduled for August 19, 2016 – August 29, 2016, has announced that Lee Imber, WW2DX, has joined the DXpedition team and will add satellite operations, as well as 2 meter EME and 6 meter operations, to the DXpedition plans.
St. Paul Island is located in gridsquare FN97 in the Cabot Strait between Cape Breton Island, Nova Scotia and Cape Ray, Newfoundland and is a separate entity on the ARRL DXCC list. It also counts as a country for the AMSAT OSCAR Satellite Communications Achievement Award, AMSAT OSCAR Sexagesimal Award, and AMSAT OSCAR Century Award. Most of Europe and North America should be easily workable from this location. St. Paul Island has not been activated on satellite since July 1998.
For further information about the DXpedition, please see the CY9C DXpedition website.
This operation and other planned amateur satellite grid/DX operations are posted on the AMSAT Upcoming Satellite Operations page.
