Pilot Stations

Off Island Support – A35JT Pilot Team

To assist the A35JT expedition team get quickly dialed in to what bands are open from when for Tonga, we have enlisted the help of various pilot stations around the globe. The role of the pilot stations are to gather SWL reports as to when stations in their area are hearing the DXpedition or other stations in the vicinity (eg 3D2AG in Fiji). SWL reports containing the date, time, band and mode are then compiled and forwarded to the team on the island, so they will know when they are being heard and adjust their operating schedule for various continents to target them at the right time.

NOTE: pilots do not take NIL complaints, requests for certain bands or modes (wish list), etc. These will be considered only after the expedition via our QSL manager via the OQRS Busted Call Request function.
