Just 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)

Qsl Cards for the recent operation from AS-088 are now with the printer. It is unlikely they will be mailed to you before the January update…..but who knows
……OC-202 rescheduled until later this year due to heavy seas..
…They will now activate Lubang Island OC-126, qrv 1300 UTC today but this time as DU1UD/p.
Chris & Dindo hope to get onto Calagua tomorrow morning. As long as they manage to get the early boat and set-up goes according to plan, they aim to be qrv around 12midday tomorrow (5th). Please bear in mind they have been unable to recce this remote Island so things may change 😉 ………
Chris VK3FY, Nik VK3FNIK & Dindo DU1UD will be active as DX8DX from Luzon Island IOTA OC-042 between 23rd to 29/12/2016 with the possibility of other IOTA’s in the same region (IOTA OC-130, IOTA OC-235 etc).
On the 6th, 7th & 8th January 2017 DX8DX will be qrv from the Calagua Islands IOTA OC-202, one of the Calagua Islands Group.
They will be qrv on 40-10M with limited activity on 80 & 160M using SSB and CW modes with the help of two small PA and Band Pass Filters.
QSL via M0OXO OQRS or M0OXO Direct Post Mail.
**Please DO NOT add cards for other activations (A70X) in the same envelope as this will slow down the processing of these cards for the IOTA January deadline.
