BITS & PIECES -

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
FINLAND, Feb.11.2015

SCIENCE EXPEDITION TO FERNANDO DE NORONHA, PW0F
 Friday, Feb.20 thru Wednesday Feb.25, 2015
   Dr. Ville Hiilesmaa, PY2ZEA and Senior Researcher Martti Laine, OH2BH on
science expedition.
   Next week's PW0F operation carries major scientific value, which may
result in some sporadic and unexpected appearance and/or sudden
disappearance of the signal. The essence of the study is taking two ladies
to a somewhat remote island and putting their psychological stability to the
test while left idling in the absence of two men running the ARRL DX
Contest. Depending on the intermediate results the ladys' minds may be
further challenged by testing the effect of other radio frequencies outside
of the contest frequency spectrum.
   The results will be distributed on their science paper QSL card via
OH2BH.

CAYMAN ISLANDS, ZF2BH FOR MORE CONTACTS TO PEOPLE
 Tuesday Mar.03 thru Mar.09, 2015
   The party of Leena, OH2BE and Martti, OH2BH will continue their study
tour to Cayman Islands, where Martti will air ZF2BH in the ARRL SSB Contest
along with Joe, ZF2AH (W6VNR).
   The duo is grateful for the assistance of John ZF1DJ, Andrew ZF1EJ, Joe
ZF2AH and John ZF2AM and the entire gang at the Cayman Amateur Radio
Society, ZF1A.
   ZF2BH via OH2BH & ZF2AH via W6VNR.
