SHEMYA ISLAND (NA-037) ---> "Fred, KL7FBI arrived on Shemya Island on 14
May", VE3LYC reports, "and so far had a very busy work schedule. There is no
cell phone coverage on the island, and he only has access to email communi-
cation at work. He installed an inverted V and during the last week operated
with 100W, always on 14260 kHz, for very short periods of time after work,
testing the propagation. Nevertheless, he is scheduled to leave the island
on July 10 and during the remaining period of time will try to be more
active. Please note that he leaves work daily at 3 UTC, not only during the
weekdays, but often during the weekend as well. As such, he intends to show
up on 14260 kHz (he operates only SSB) after 4 UTC, calling CQ IOTA. If a
pile-up forms, he will announce that will operate split. In case that he
doesn't need to go to work during the weekend, he will try to show up at
different times, but always on the above QRG". [TNX VE3LYC]
