E6     - All logistics arrangements are now complete for the E6GG  operation
        from Niue (OC-040) on 16-29 September [425DXN 1259].  All  antennas
        are complete and tested, as are  all  the  stations  and  computing
        equipment.  The  team  expects  some  limited  operation  from   15
        September, with all stations operational on the  16th.  There  will
        be four complete high power stations, which will be using  antennas
        at the water's edge and cliff-top  optimised  for  low  angle  high
        gain. They will also use a  beverage  directed  to  Europe  for  LF
        receiving. For RTTY they  will  deploy  multi-channel  receive,  so
        your best chance of an early  RTTY  QSO  is  to  choose  a  calling
        frequency and stay on that frequency  until  the  team  finds  you.
        RTTY is likely to be only on a maximum of two  bands.  The  website
        ( includes a propagation analysis. The  team  will  be
        listening  exclusively  for  Europe  during  the  relatively  short
        European openings on LF. Plans are to upload  logs  daily  to  Club
