As this will be a one man holiday style expedition I wont be operating 24×7 like the big guns. However, I will make the effort to try and work particular openings propagation willing, with a focus on trying to reach Europe in particular (a very difficult path from Niue over the North Pole).
Some days I will try and be active much of the day, while others will be restricted mostly to the “Likely Most Days” time plan you see below. If you do hear me calling a particular region, please respect that and wait your turn. If I don’t find a particular band open at a nominated time, start looking for me on lower frequencies. Be aware too that I cant change bands quickly (manual adjustment of the antenna will be required) so it could be 5-10 minutes before I come back on air. To that end I will try and limit frequent band changes.
Please Remember: This is based on predictions only – what happens will depend on the state of the bands of course, so it is subject to change without notice.
E6AG Propagation Prediction and Operating Plan
This table has been compiled by examining the VoaCAP predictions from Niue for September 2017 and from the K6TU Propagation Forecast tools. It is under continuous revision in the lead up to the expedition so stay tuned. If you have feedback on a particular path or time please let me know!
