21/05/2012: Andre, GM3VLB, reports "In the hope of completing what I now call the "SCOTIA challenge", which in my own case means activating the last five of the programme's 200 islands which I haven't yet activated, I am returning to the Orkney (EU-009) group, beginning 21 May, 2012. I have a return booking on 7 June but am prepared to remain in EU-009 longer, if necessary. The 5 remaining islands are Muckle Green Holm (IOSA OR32, SCOTIA OI20), Linga Holm (IOSA OR31, SCOTIA OI21), Eynhallow (IOSA OR24, SCOTIA OI24), Faray (IOSA OR23, SCOTIA OI28) and Calf of Eday (IOSA OR29, SCOTIA OI29). Some are quite difficult to approach and to land on (steep rocky shores) as well as being subject to very strong tidal current (the waters off Eday are in fact the chosen location for testing the latest tidal generators, so near-perfect weather conditions will be required. I believe most may be first-time activations. This will be a solo operation (XYL Veronica having decided discretion was the better part of valour!). If successful, I hope to continue activating islands, this season, in a more relaxed way, hopefully teaming up with regular island buddy Alex G(M)0DHZ to re-activate some less remote islands, which even some of the high-scoring SCOTIA chasers may have missed - I will be doing an analysis of the records to determine the most wanted."
