US Islands Announcement – First Time Activation Oct 17th 2009

Members of Mancorad W9DK Radio Club are planning a first time activation of “The Flats” an Island in the “Fox River,” Outagamie County, Appleton, Wisconsin

The Flats Island

It has a pre-approved US Islands ID which will be released upon successful activation.

Expected activation team is

Steve K9ZW *
Carl KA9WYK *
Tim N7TAL and

* = Usual “W9DK Island Activation Ring Leaders” as the rest may have issues with work schedules. We will confirm the activation participants after the event.

Planning to on-air from approximately 1400 UTC (9 am local) onwards.

If we do not have a pile up, we will likely move to one of the other pre-approved Islands nearby once “The Flats” is well qualified. Potential “second stops” are both on Lake Buttes des Morts – Winnebago County.

Our rain date is Sunday the 18th.

Our double rain date is a reschedule.

We will be on 20m SSB and possibly PSK, and additional frequencies as weather & antennas allow.

Announcement coordination will also be done via my blog “With Varying Frequency” at

If the weather is good we may have live email and log posting from the island.
