I'm very sad, that we could not get a permisssion from Stena-Lines to operate from the ferry and to activate the wet squares JO85+95 and even JO74 and KO05 and KO06 on board. We used the same ship 2003 under the scandlines-flag and had a lot of fun with amateurradio. So times are changing and I have no idea how to convince the shipping company nowadays. We even asked DFDS on their route from Kiel to Klaipeda, as in 2013 we could operate ham-radio from Saßnitz to Klaipeda - no chance either :-(((. So no wet squares on 6/4+2mtrs.
The booked QTHs on Kihnu and Hiiumaa were more open minded, so permission to operate was granted on both islands. We found QTHs with usefull take-offs towards the main directions, so you can expect the following activities:
SW/6m/4m/2m plus 70+3cm on request and during the NACs at the 12th and 19th of June, main emphasis on VHF-openings from KO19GA (also in the IARU-6m-Contest) and SW from Kihnu-Island.
Please do not expect full time operation. When we're qrv, you'll find us in the ON4KST-chat and/or in the cluster DB0SUE-7. In addition to the activities as ES0UG and ES0UG/8 also CEPT operation could happen. From YL only CEPT.
We'll keep you informed here, if you've any questions drop me a mail.
