The team's primary focus will be on 40, 80 and 160 meters during hours of darkness. We will also operate 30 through 6 depending on openings. Primary modes will be CW and FT8. Our plan is to operate FT8 in Fox/Hound mode on DXpedition frequencies. SSB and RTTY are also planned. We will also do some activity on 60 meters as time permits.
When the normal FT8 frequencies are busy, we will operate Fox/Hound mode on:
3567, 7056, 10131, 14090, 18095, 21091, 24911 and 28091 KHz. If those frequencies are busy, we will announce our operating frequency.
We will be an entry in the ARRL 160 Meter contest, 3-5 December.

TO9W - W9ILY will handle all QSL requests. All QSOs will be posted on LOTW. QSL cards will be available. We prefer the use of Club Log OQRS for both direct and bureau cards. Cards may also be requested direct to W9ILY - Unfortunately IRCs cannot be accepted. Requests via the bureau are OK.
