      Good day everyone
      The Muskegon Area Amtaeur Radio Council's Venturing Crew 9050 will
      be activating the South Manitou Island this weekend. Operations
      will begin Saturday afternoon and run until Sunday night or Monday
      morning. The crew is going to hike in, setup camp, setup a field
      station and then be on the air. Since the island has strict
      rules,evyerhing is carried in their backpacks and by hand. This
      makes it challenging. There is no commerical power available on the
      island once you leave the dock and that immediate area. All camp
      areas are rugged. No power, no plumbing, no running water.

      Special event call sign: W8M

      Hours of operation: Saturday afternoon through Sunday night or
      Monday morning.

      Frequency: Look for them in the general portion of the 40 and 20
      meter band. Evening time they may drop down to 75 meter.
      Operations will be via voice and CW.
