With the kind permission of Mrs Ann Law, widow of the late Robert F. Law, the callsign EI9E was reissued by the Office of the Director of Telecommunications Regulation to a successor in his post of RTÉ's Engineer-in-Charge in the Southern Area of the RTÉ Transmission Network, based in Cork.

The callsign is now allocated to the "Network Southern Area Radio Experimenters' Club" with John Hearne, EI2FG, as the licence holder.
It is used by members of the RTÉ Transmission Network (now 2RN) staff and friends for conducting radio experiments.

Operation is from various different locations including portable operation for VHF, UHF and meteor scatter expeditions as follows:
The group is active in major HF contests from Co. Wexford in IO62RG.

Operation in VHF Field Day on the first full weekend of July every year is from the White Mountain in Co. Wexford in IO62OM. The 2018 event will take place on July 7th and 8th and we'll be there. You can see our VHF Field Day operation on http://ei9e.blogspot.ie/

In 2011 we started to do portable meteor scatter on 6m, 4m and 2m during the Perseids shower in August from Co. Kerry in IO42SD. In 2012 we returned to the same site.

In August 2013 we travelled to Co. Donegal to IO55VD to operate MS again on 6m, 4m and 2m during the Perseids meteor shower. We were very lucky to have an excellent Es opening which gave us >1000 contacts on 6m.

In August 2014 we travelled to Co. Kerry to IO41TU and operated 6m, 4m and 2m meteor scatter and some 2m EME at moonrise. We also made some 23cm EME contacts with a single 67 element antenna.

In August 2015 we travelled to Achill Island in Co. Mayo to IO43XW and operated meteor scatter on 6, 4 and 2m as well as making 55 2m EME QSOs. In total we made over 850 QSOs and we hope we gave IO43 to many who were looking for the square.

In August 2016 we operated from IO44WD during the Perseids meteor shower on 6m, 4m and 2m and made over 900 QSOs. These were a mixture of SSB, CW, JT6M, FSK441 and JT65 including several dozen on 2m EME. Even CLA seemed to enjoy himself although it can be hard to tell!

In August 2017 we operated from EI2FG's new shack in IO61AX, Co. Waterford on 6m, 4m and 2m and made many contacts including the new FT8 mode on 6m and some EME on 2m using JT65.

Logbook of the World is the preferred route for confirming contacts (QSLs) and our logs are uploaded promptly.

If you have worked us on either 70cm or 23cm on VHF Field Day this is what we were using:
