Update Octoberber 14: Due to the COVID pandemic, the team has decided to cancel their planned December activation of TO9W from the beautiful island of Saint Martin. We are sad to miss this year’s low band DX season and sad to miss the people and beauty of this wonderful island. Current plans, assuming the pandemic is no longer in control of our lives, include a six meter operation in June 2021 and our annual low bands activation currently planned for November 30-December 10, 2021. The TO9W webpage will be updated with the latest information and dates. [tnx K9EL]
Update November 16: Frequencies for Fox & Hound: 3567, 7056, 10131, 14090, 18095, 21091, 24911 and 28091 KHz
Update November 5: In less than 30 days, we will be in Saint Martin! We arrive late on December 3rd and we will spend all day December 4th and probably into the 5th setting up antennas. We will put one station on the air as soon as possible, most likely 20 meters. Ultimately we will be able to have 3 stations operating simultaneously. All antennas will come down on December 13th. We have a new large fiber-glass mast for an improved 160 meter TX antenna. We will alternate between CW and FT8 on 160 meters.
Please make sure to update your logging programs to recognize TO9W as Saint Martin. Our intention is activate Club Log real time log updates, assuming a steady Internet connection. We plan to upload to LoTW daily. All questions, comments and requests for schedules should be sent to our pilots, K9NB or W9MK. Our QSL Manager is W9ILY.

We are returning to the beautiful island of Saint Martin in December 2019 using our new TO9W calsign. Our primary focus will be on the low bands – 40, 80, 160, primarily using CW and FT8 to maximize the number of contacts. We will pay special attention to Asia as the window is very small. There will be activity on other bands and modes as time permits.
