Upcoming USI Expeditions

Nothing from Thu Oct 18, 2018 to Wed Oct 24, 2018.
U.S. Islands is a great way to go on a mini-DXpedition without spending a lot of money. Discovering islands in your own back yard and setting up a station outdoors is always a good time. If hams have only operated outdoors during Field Day, we offer another route to get outside and enjoy portable ham radio in a different way.
USI has two operating activities each year:
- One-Day-Getaway is just that, a casual day of island portable operations the second Saturday of May. Activating or qualifying a new island, 1DG is a perfect way to hone your on the air operating skills and perfect your portable or mobile “field day kit”.
- The W/VE Island QSO Party is our once a year “contest” that has a class for just about any individual or group. Operate from a friends island “Fixed” QTH, take your club on a single island “Expedition”, or go on a mobile or waterborne “Rover” adventure.
Any way you like it, portable, walk on, paddle to, motor to, mobile, drive on, USI is year around ham radio fun.
