Iceland/Greenland/Faroe Islands on Satellite July 4-19

Gabe Zeifman NJ7H/VE6NJH has finalized plans for an upcoming trip to
Iceland, Greenland, and the Faroe Islands. Once again, this is a trip
with family so radio is not his priority. However, he will put forth
my best effort to give these rare entities and associated grids to
everyone in range.

Gabe will be arriving in Iceland at about 0000Z on July 5 and spend
one night
at the hotel on the airport (access to HP83/84 line).

Gabe reports, “We will be in Iceland until July 10 with numerous
grids in the HP and IP fields possible, no strict plan yet.

“We will continue on to the Faroe Islands July 10-14. I will make an
effort to operate from both IP61 and IP62 while in the Faroes.

“Finally, we will head to Greenland on July 14th staying until the
18th. The destination in Greenland is Ilulissat in GP49. I do not
anticipate any other grids to be activated in Greenland, although if
there is an opportunity I will, but I don’t expect any opportunities.
>From GP49 all of North/Central America and Europe should be in range,
along with portions of South America, Asia, and Africa, much of it
even possible on SO-50. I anticipate a nearly perfect horizon to the

“On the 19th we travel back to the US with a several hour connection
in Iceland. I will also have two nights on the beginning and end in
New York City, and July 21-25 in Florida (anyone who needs EM90, hit
me up).

“In exciting news, this very well may be the last DX use of NJ7H.
Don’t worry, I am not retired from roving. I am beginning my training
at the FAA as an air traffic controller on July 26th and will be very
busy with that. I expect facility placement in late October, and I am
requesting Alaska. Although I cannot yet be certain, I have been told
that I should expect to receive my request.

“QSLing for this trip will be via LoTW. I still need to get some new
generic cards printed, but if you need paper I’ll get cards printed
eventually, just don’t expect rush service (I have some from other
trips in the backlog, don’t worry I havn’t forgotten).”

Calls to be used:

Iceland: TF/NJ7H
Greenland: OX/NJ7H
Faroe Islands: OY/NJ7H
