YC9MLL IOTA OC-151 Flores Island

YC9MLL 1BJust a reminder from Leo YC9MLL;

"I have also bought tickets already for Flores Island IOTA OC-151.  I will be on air there most probably on January 18-19 7 21st 2017 and then again on the 22, 24 & 25th January 2017.

I will also be qrv in July 2017 again on the same days 21-22 & 24th.

I will be running 100W mostly on 21 MHz around the IOTA calling freq. or at any clear freq. near it.  I will try to operate split for better results.  I have also 14MHz segment in Indonesia so I may also try that band and 7MHz also if I have a long bamboo pole available.  It was not previously planned to be there but it is a great surprise to be allowed to be back."

(I am mailing out a 12m Spiderbeam Pole to Leo so I hope this will be better than his 'bamboo pole'...73 de Charles)
