- Message from Seb, F8IJV
UPDATE: I have had to postpone my activity in Fiji planned for October 2011 due to personal reasons. I hope to be able to go there next 2012 or 2013. Of course, I will give more news when I will have some.
I plan to be in Fiji during next 2011 October. Definitive dates are not fixed yet. I will try to be active during my free time (I wonâ€™t be in â€œDXâ€™peditionâ€) and I got 3D2JV license delivered a few days ago. I will be active from 3D2AG Tony QTH from Liti Levu (IOTA OC-016) and I also will participate to the CQ WW SSB 2011 from there. If itâ€™s possible to go to Rotuma by plane, and if itâ€™s not too expensive, I would like to operate few days from there.
Rig used will be Yaesu FT-450, Spiderbeam 5 bands yagi, and three vertical antenna for 160, 80 & 40m bands. Maybe a K9AY for reception. Bands activated should be from 160m to 6m. Modes: mainly SSB and FM on 10m, and a bit of digital if Iâ€™m good enough. QSL info will be via my home call F8IJV, via buro & direct, & LOTW. More infos when I will have more news and details for this activity.
