This is what we think we will do, propagation and you will decide what bands we will operate at what time. We all know propagation predictions is just that, predictions. We will try to stay away from calling specific areas for long time, but there will be periods of short openings to various places and we will try our best to make the most of them.

We will be operating 80 thru 10 meters SSB, RTTY, PSK63 and FT8. We will make an effort in running 160m WSPR while not operating during nights. Please read our FT8 guidelines carefully before calling us on FT8. The guidelines can be found here.

Likely openings (all times in UTC):

USA/Canada:
W1, W2, W3 (Also similar VE2, VE3):
This is one of the most difficult paths and is directly over the pole.
If the Geo does not play nice, we will be cut off even during the small openings we will get on this path.
But we will try the following likely openings:
30m around 1000
20m 1200-1900
17m around 1400 and again around 1900

Europe:
40m 1900-2200
30m 1700-0000
20m 1200-2100
17m 0800-1900
15m (Northern EU) 1000-1100, 1600-1700; (Southern EU) 0600-1800
12m (Northern EU) around 1600; (Southern EU) 0900-1600
10m (Southern EU only) 1000-1200

For Europe, we expect 30m to be a good opening, and 20m, 17m to be the best openings.

W4:
30m around 1100
20m 1200-1600
17m around 1500, 1800 and 2330 perhaps sporadically in between.
15m around 1900

W6, W7:
40m 1100-1500
30m 0900-1600
20m 1600-1900, perhaps 2200-0000
17m around 1900 and 2300-0100

W5:
40m around 1200
30m 1200-1300
20m 1400-1700, maybe around 2300
17m 1500-1700, maybe around 2300

South America:
40m around 2200
30m 2100-2300
20m (PY East Coast) 0900-1100, (YV) 0000-0200
17m 0900-1200
15m 1000-1200
12m (YV) 1100-1200
