Propagation

As with my previous VK IOTA DXpeditions, I’m aiming to work 60% Europe, 25% Asia and at least 10% North America. I will be asking Europe and Asia to stand by at certain times to give North America a chance as the openings tend to be short and not as good. There will also be some times during the European openings that I’ll be asking for “United Kingdom and Scandinavia” to give northern Europe a chance.

Where will I be?

I’m going to be on the following bands at the following times (of course this will change depending on band conditions):

0000 to 0100 UTC on 15m, 17m or 20m (maybe even 10m or 12m)

0100 to 0200 UTC on 15m, 17m or 20m (maybe even 12m)

0200 to 0600 UTC on 15m, 17m or 20m 

0600 to 0700 UTC on 15m, 17m or 20m (maybe even 12m)

0700 to 1000 UTC on 15m, 17m or 20m (maybe even 12m, 30m or 40m) 

1000 to 1400 UTC on 15m, 17m or 20m 

1400 to 1600 UTC on 17m or 20m 

1600 to 1900 UTC on 20m 

1900 to 2000 UTC on 17m or 20m (maybe even 30m or 40m) 

2000 to 2100 UTC on 17m or 20m (maybe even 15m, 30m or 40m)  

2100 to 2300 UTC on 15m, 17m or 20m (maybe even 12m)

2300 to 0000 UTC on 15m, 17m or 20m (maybe even 10m or 12m) 

 

 Where to look on the bands:

10m SSB on 28460 to 28495 kHz

12m SSB on 24940 to 24980 kHz

15m SSB on 21240 to 21280 kHz

17m SSB on 18140 to 18160 kHz

20m SSB on 14235 to 14270 kHz

30m PSK63 on 10140 kHz or RTTY 10145 kHz

40m SSB on 7125 to 7200 kHz
