VK4LDX/P – Horn Island, OC-138


    The dates for the DXpedition to Horn Island OC-138 have been brought forward and will now be on March 10 – 14.  This was going to be holiday style but now it is a full time DXpedition and I plan to operate 18 hours per day.

    I arrive on the island in the morning and will be QRV as VK4LDX/P from around 0800 UTC on the 10th using a 40m dipole, Butternut HF9V vertical and Spiderbeam 10-15-20 tribander. Operation will be on SSB, PSK31 and RTTY (I don’t do CW) on 10, 15, 20 and 40m.

    This IOTA has only been claimed by 19.5% of participants, it was last activated in 2007 over 2 days and prior to that for two days in 2002. Hope to see you on the bands
