With the 7O6T Yemen dxpedition in full swing from Socotra Island, AF-028, Irish hams can look forward to another big activation this month with the forthcoming XX9 Macau dxpedition. This dxpedition will be on air for JUST ONE WEEK from May 17th to 23rd inclusive, so it will be tough to fill out slots as it is expected to be in high demand. They will transmit from IOTA AS-075 (Coloane Island OL62SC).
XX9 Macau is the 78th most wanted DXCC entity out of 340, according to DX Publishing. The team consists of ten hams, mainly from Spain, and one Welsh-born operator, F5VLY Adrian, who now lives in France.
They will be active on all HF bands from 160-10m and also 6 metres, in CW, phone and RTTY. For more details see their website.
