Proposed Australia (VK) to EU Microwave DX Expedition, June/July 2015.

Following our visit to the popular Friedrichshafen Hamfest in 2014, Australian Amateurs… Alan – VK3XPD and David – VK5KK in conjunction with Wolfgang – OE4WOG and “friends” decided we would participate in a VK – EU, DX Expedition in 2015. This idea was born over Dinner in a local Friedrichshafen Restaurant, June 2014.

So, once again, David and I will be attending the 2015 Friedrichshafen Hamfest over the weekend of June 26 & 27th. This time however, we will also be bringing with us “portable” Transverters for various Microwave and Millimetre Wave Bands. In the week following the Hamfest, it is our desire to work as many EU stations as possible… on as many Bands as possible from OE, DM, F, HB, I and depending on the Propagation, to other more distance countries.

Our Operating “window” will also include the popular “European 3rd Sub Regional Contest”... better known as the VHF Field Day on the weekend of July 4th and 5th, 2015.

By necessity due to our International travel, the Portable RF gear we bring will generally be QRP'ish.
We will however have GPS Locked capabilities for our Transverters on 23cm (2 Watts), 10 GHz (1 watt), 24 GHz (1 Watt), 5.7 GHz (? Watts), 47 GHz (25 mW), 76 GHz (5 Milliwatts) and 122 GHz. The latter will be a “bare” Mixer feeding a 250mm Dish. We will also have 2 Metres and 70 cms (5 Watts) from our FT-817 IF Radio’s hopefully feeding small Yagi's. Wolfgang has investigated/suggested several Operating sites. These are both high Mountains in Austria - Pfander Mt in JN47vm, Elevation 1064 metres ASL and Zugspitze Mt in JN57lk, Elevation 2962 metres ASL.  

So… to summarise our proposed DX Expedition :

OPERATORS : Alan – VK3XPD and David – VK5KK.
DATES : Monday, June 29th through to Sunday, July 5th, 2015.
BANDS : 2 Metres, 70 cms, 23 cms, 5 GHz, 10 GHz, 24 GHz, 47 GHz, 76 GHz and 122 GHz.
OPERATING SITES : Pfander Mt and Zugspitze Mt.
We will be Posting more specific details to the usual Forums and Websites progressively in 2015.
We would appreciate it greatly if Readers could forward this to as many interested Amateurs as possible.

For the latest Updates... I refer you to Alan's Website...

We welcome any comments or questions you may have regarding our proposed DX Expedition.

Thank you.
Alan – VK3XPD, David – VK5KK, Wolfgang – OE4WOG and friends.
