A reminder that Nobby (G0VJG) will be Qrv as VK6/G0VJG between the 11th & 16th February 2023. He will be operating from The NCRG Northern Corridor Radio Group about 20km from Perth. He will be using a Kenwood TS-990 with a SPE Expert 2K-FA amplifier and a Ultrabeam UB-04EL-640 antenna at about 100 feet.
Between the 17th and 23rd he will qrv as VK9CVG from the West Island, Cocos Keeling Islands (IOTA OC-003) where he will use a smaller set up of a Yaesu FT-857 and Juma (1000) PA into verticals (80 thro 10m) on the beach.
A huge shout our and thanks to the NCRG Radio Club, Perth, Australia for allowing Nobby the opportunity of using their station and operating from VK6.
Don’t forget that Nobby is a Team Member of MM0UKI, the team heading to Rockall in May 2023. Please check out their Website to keep abreast of plans for the activation of a very rare and dangerous IOTA alongside team mates Emil Bergmann (DL8JJ) and Cam Cameron.
