    Thanks to the Northern Ohio Amateur Radio Society, Northern Ohio DX
    Association, Ohio/Penn PacketCluster Network, the AB5K's AR Clusters
    Network and PG5M for the following DX information.

    Dear editor/colleague,
    For immediate release:

    New IOTA on Ice DXpedition
    Inakari Island coordinates: Lat: 65° 41' 49.4460" Lon: 24° 10' 5.0460"
    We are proud to announce that a new IOTA island will be activated for the
    first time by a small international team during this very cold winter with
    local temperatures on the island dropping to around -20C (-4F).

    Kataja/Inakari Island has been added to the list by the IOTA Committee in
    October 2018 as EU192. Martti-OH2BH, Nigel-G3TXF, Niko-OH2GEK and Gerben-
    PG5M will be travelling by snow mobiles several kilometers out over the
    frozen seas of the Bothnian Bay to set up camp on Inakari Island, the
    Finnish part where they will use an abandoned fisherman’s refuge. As
    Inakari Island is part of the Bothnian Bay National Park the party need
    to obey several related restrictions, but they have been successful in
    dealing with them all.

    From 7-11 February, we will be running two stations simultaneously across
    80-40-30-20-17-15 meters, operating CW and SSB. Call sign is OH10X and
    QSL via PG5M and using Club Log. Log search is available on Club Log. We
    will provide daily posts on www.dx.to to keep you updated on progress and
    on the conditions on the island.


    Gerben = PG5M
