The Government of the Bahamas has kindly issued a license that will allow operations in 2014-15. The call issued is C6ATS.
I intend to travel throughout the Bahamas during the winter and spring of 2014/5 activating the following groups:NA-001 Great Bahama Bank group,NA-113 South Bahamas group, NA-054 Berry Islands, NA-048 Bimini Islands. Some of these are rarer than others but since I will be travelling by boat, I am required to validate NA-054 and NA-048 through the IOTA Committee. I also hope to activate some islands that are not on the list, even although they seem to qualify (Hogsty Reef).
Working conditions are K3 or TS-480HX, VDA on 10m, 12m, 15m, 17m and maybe 20m. Power from a deep-cycle 35Ah battery recharged as necessary.
Logs will be uploaded to LOTW, Clublog and to NI5DX as time and available internet permit. I will not always be able to update the Grid Square here remotely – you may have to enter the information in your software manually.
OQRS is active for this callsign – if you need a bureau card, please request it through OQRS and I will sent it when I can – probably only once per year, in the summer. For a more responsive paper QSL, please QSL via NI5DX who operates a very timely service.
