VK5MAV/6 & VK5CE/6 – Breaksea Island, OC-243

    UPDATE – video tour by VK5CE found here


    UPDATE: Dates of activity – 29 February – 3 March 2016

    December 19, 2015 – Craig VK5CE met Andy VK5MAV in person for the first time yesterday afternoon and this was our chance to talk about the logistics of this operation and they had a great first meeting.

    Getting to the town of Albany in VK6 from their QTH’s involves a drive of 2700 km (1700 miles) and then they need to charter a helicopter to land on top of the island.

    They will be running two stations at the same time during the day and at night on 10m, 15m, 20m and 40m and will be located on the top of the mountainous island with 360 degree views to all parts of the world. Andy will be operating CW with 100W as VK5MAV/6 and Craig will be operating an amplifier using SSB with 400W as VK5CE/6.
