9M6DXX/p and 9M6XRO/p – Sebatik Island, OC-295

    • June 4

    Greetings from Tawau, Sabah…

    John, 9M6XRO, and I were unable to operate from Sebatik Island, OC-295, on this occasion, but we have been able to make arrangements for a 4-day DXpedition there in September. Further details to follow.

    Steve, 9M6DXX

    John, 9M6XRO, and Steve, 9M6DXX, will be visiting Sebatik Island (OC-295) from 3 to 5 June and may be active as 9M6XRO/P (CW) and 9M6DXX/P (SSB) using 100W to a simple wire antenna, although no operation is guaranteed on this occasion.

    The visit is in preparation for a possible DXpedition there later in the year with higher power and better antennas. OC-295 has only been activated once before, in July 2006, and remains high up the IOTA ‘Most Wanted’ list.

    QSL both callsigns via M0URX, direct, bureau or LoTW.
