JP32
We arrived at JP32 yesterday after a long journey. There, the planned location turned out to be inaccessible. Went looking for another spot that we eventually found. But there were a lot of campers that had a problem with the noise of our generator.
Because a rest evening and morning was also welcome, we decided not to be QRV. JP32 is cancelled. We continue to JP42. The schedule changes slightly and JP42 now stands for 29/6, 30/6 and 1/7. Then we have an extra day for the return journey. The average traveling speed in Norway is 60 km/h and we need the extra time to catch the boat..

2022-06-29


We are now in JP42LA.
The schedule has been slightly modified. It's basically the same schedule as previously published just everything a day ahead.
JP42LA starts on 2022-06-29. We start at 4m.
On 2022-06-30 we will also start at 4m in the morning. This until 11 UTC. At 11 UTC convert to EME at 2m. EME in the afternoon is going to be a tough one because the sun is right next to the moon, but I'm going to try anyway.
At 16:00 UTC again MS at 2m. On 2022-07-01 still MS at 2m until about 10 UTC. Then break off and drive towards Kristiansand..
