FT4TA Tromelin 2014 – Update
Sunday, 21 September 2014 12:00

21 September 2014

The FT4TA Team informs DxCoffee readers:
In just a month, we’ll leave Europe for Tromelin. Except for a major event, this communication should be the last before departure. It seems important to us to point out the objectives to you that we fixed ourselves.
Initially, we will seek to maximize the number of contacts to give everyone a chance whatever their geographical position. To achieve this goal, we should be active quite often on the most prolific bands. Our operators will make their best to exploit the propagation windows towards certain areas. The collaboration of all will be essential not to waste time, stupidly.
Our second priority will be activity on the low bands, with all the difficulties that it generates. Let’s hope that our equipment and effort will provide good results.
Once a day, the logs of FT4TA will be uploaded on Clublog by a satellite data connection. The leaderboard will not be activated. (to discourage unrestrained race). In addition, we point out that neither the pilots, nor the QSL Manager will have access to the log during the operation. Useless to drown them under e-mails. In case of doubt, please reiterate the contact. 
The dates of our operation will be concomitant with those of the philatelic exhibition of Paris. In addition to a presentation of our activity, the stamps celebrating the 60 years of the 1st amateur radio activity from Tromelin will be presented and put on sale by the TAAF. We are really happy to have taken part in its development and proud to see our activity highlighted.
We are pleased to announce that all the QSL cards requests (direct – OQRS – donors) will have this stamp applied. Envelopes will be then entrusted to the TAAF which will have the responsibility to convey, cover and affix the philatelic marks from the island of Tromelin, these stamps being valid only from the French Southern and Antarctic lands. It may slightly lengthen the answer time but it offers the opportunity of having your QSL and a wonderful philatelic envelope.
Lastly, keep in mind that the conditions under which the expedition will be realized will be testing, more especially as the team is small. We will be lodged by the TAAF. Besides the radio operation, a certain number of additional tasks will be carried out by the team to assist our hosts, which is legitimate in a community life. We could per moment be obliged to temporarily stop the transmissions of one or more stations for a short period.
You can right now find all details on our website. Throughout the stay, our team in France will keep the site updated with news as well as photographs transmitted by satellite with the logs.
Thank you for your encouragements and your support.
The team FT4TA

FT4TA Tromelin 2014 Press Release – August 26th 2014


We have just passed the 100 days mark before the beginning of our FT4TA operation to the island of Tromelin. Since the last official press release many things have evolved well; we are extremely fortunate.

Thanks to the strong mobilization around our project, we are relatively trustful in the fact of being able to gather the necessary budget. If we do not meet last minute problems, and if individual donations continue to flow at the current rate, we should balance our budget (after the expedition). Some partners have not yet validated their assistance, and we definitively count on them!

In addition, several people in Japan have mentioned to us they encountered problems with the Paypal button on our website. In order to circumvent this problem, we invite people who would be in this instance to use our address ( ) directly from their Paypal account.

Almost all of the equipment was gathered by the team. This equipment was lent, purchased or taken from our personal stations. We want to express our thanks to Spiderbeam (masts), Elecraft (radios), OM Power (amplifiers), Microham (interfaces), Messi and Paolini (coaxial cables), DX Engineering (phasing 80m) and DX, which sponsors us the Internet access by satellite to let you use our on-line logbook and read daily news from the team during the operation.

At the end of June, three pallets of equipment had been shipped to Reunion island. They have been transported to Tromelin Sunday (by helicopter) by the logistics service of TAAF.

This possibility was offered to us suddenly and was not in our initial plan. Although it induces very important expenditure, we could not let pass this opportunity because it will deeply modify the physiology of our operation. It would not have been possible for us to carry all this equipment on a small aircraft. This freighting marks the true point of no return!

Our preliminary works with TAAF continue. Michel FM5CD and Seb F5UFX went at the end of May to Réunion to meet our interlocutors (TAAF, civil aviation, airline company). We want to highlight again the trusted relationship and the incommensurable assistance brought by TAAF.

2014 marks the 60th birthday of the first amateur radio activity from Tromelin. Prepared in collaboration with the philatelic service of TAAF, and drawn by an artist, a special stamp will be put on sale at the time of the Autumn Philatelic Exhibition in Paris (November 6th to 9th). During this event, an amateur radio station will be set-up on the TAAF booth by the radio-club of Provins, F6KOP. They will proceed to demonstrate and make contacts with FT4TA team twice a day. It’s very important to promote our activity in such an exhibition.

Our website evolves constantly. The pages known as “classical” are available since the beginning (operators, pilots, QSL manager, sponsors) and news articles appeared lately (historical, bandplan..). Others are in preparation and should be published soon (interview of FR5ZU and F6JJX, two ex-“Tromelin” operators, PowerPoint presentation..).

It is the ideal time to prepare your station to be ready. On October 30th point your antennas towards the Indian Ocean! In the meantime join us on Facebook & Twitter to follow our news and keep an eye on the Tromelin2014 website. A surprise will be announced soon!

Las estadísticas detalladas de esta operación se darán a conocer en los próximos días. Sin embargo, comentaros que hemos hecho un poco más de 9.300 QSOs, y hemos sido capaces de registrar 5.565 estaciones individuales de 111 países del DXCC.

Nos gustaría recordaros amablemente a todos los seguidores del IOTA, una vez más, que estamos buscando su posible apoyo para sufragar algunos de los gastos. Fotos de la operación también se publicarán en breve.
