VK3BF/VK9C – Cocos Keeling Island

    • Nick, VK2DX reports the following:

    Allan VK3BF/VK9C is active from Cocos-Keeling Is. This operation came as bit of surprise, without any prior announcement.

    In the past any activation of VK9C / VK9X meant minimum 1 week stay on the island due to flight arrangement between VK6-VK9, however in recent months there are number of chartered flights to/from the islands so it is hard to know how long he may be staying there.

    Could be a nice catch for those who chase IOTA 2012 challenge or even ARRL Diamond DXCC Challenge!
