New IOTA first activation

| February 8, 2019

A new Islands on the Air (IOTA) island, Inakari Island, EU192, is being activated by a small international team for the first time.

It will be on the air until Monday, 11 February 2019 at 0600UTC.

Kataja/Inakari Island was added to the official IOTA list last year.

Martti, OH2BH; Nigel, G3TXF; Niko, OH2GEK and Gerben, PG5M, will be travelling by snowmobile several kilometres over the frozen surface of Bothnian Bay to set up camp on the Finnish part of Inakari Island, where they will use an abandoned fisherman’s refuge.

The Island is part of the Bothnian Bay National Park.

The team will run two stations simultaneously on 80, 40, 30, 20, 17 and 15 metres using CW and SSB.

The call sign to look for is OH10X.

QSL via PG5M using Club Log.
