From the ZL7X Page:

"The team will be QRV as ZL7X by JH1GNU, JH1HRJ and JE1SCJ especially on low bands and digital mode. We will arrive on the island on Oct 16th late afternoon and will start the first call in the evening. On the second day, low band antennas will be launched for 160m/80m operation which will be starting QRV 17th evening until Oct. 22nd evening before we leave the island on Oct. 23rd morning.

JH1GNU (Shige) will be focusing especially to 160/80m CW at night time, JE1SCJ (Tack) will be trying all band and mode, ZL3JP/JH1HRJ (Kaz) will be focusing to digital mode especially FT8 (DXpdetion mode).

For FT8 operation, please do not forget to set your WSJT-X software to Hound mode when you call us. And please do not call under 1000Hz for your transmission frequency, because WSJT-X will not respond any station calling under 1000Hz set up. Please read WSJT-X manual in advance if you call us by FT8 DXpediton mode. When 160m QRV, it will be non-DXpedition mode, and QSX 1911 for JA.

The team has now completed the test of a new vertical anntenna system with loop type ground, which is designed by Shige.

Log and QSL information:

Club log will be updated gradually depending upon the network connection.

QSL via the bureau/SASE direct to QSL manager JA0VSH, LoTW and e-QSL will be uploaded after the pedition.

Hope to see you all on the air. 73s de Dr. K. Oya JH1HRJ/ZL3JP"
