This Sunday, Flo will be on the air from BI-004 Ambecoa Isl. After a 1st reco. trip, it appears that BI-004 is accessible at low tide, with boots, at the south point. But if it fails, he will go to BI-005…
Comment from the operator:….”Access on BI-004 is possible, but it’s a long way walking in this “swamp” area ! Please listen well, be patient, as I’m not able to produce a big signal from there. Ambecoa Isl. Is located in a “biospheric area” so I use only “green energy” 12v Battery… I hope to write you down in the log.. 73, cu on the air” …
Stay tuned ! Some more islands / lighthouses coming until end april 2015 !

30IR/BI002 Chacharramendi Isl.

Lasts days, 3 Inland Waterways Islands in Biscay were activated, as “new one” on 11m.
Comment from the operator:
”Characteristics of theses 3 islands/rock are that, even if they are officially listed as IWI, they are located near the Atlantic ocean, and so, like any coastal Islands /rocks, they are affected by low /high tide…As of today, a bunch of “islands hunters” already worked me on all 3 islands/rock, so thanks to them, as well as the other ones, for their interest. I’ll be sporadically active again from these locations till April. Bests 73, cu on the air” ….
Reminder: Wait end of April 2015 before sending any logs entries and Qsl request! (to 14IR017)
(We expect multiple re-activations of these 3 ones, and maybe more to come till then)
QSL will be via 14IR017. One QSL for the whole island tour so don't hurry to send your QSL ! Wait until end april and group your cards ! Good luck !
