A team of 6 DXers are activating Lakshadweep Islands from 11th October till 20th October. They will be landing on Island of Agatti by air and then take shift boat to Kavaratti to setup station by the beachside place. Will be active on the air on SSB, CW and Digital on 80m to 10m.

Planned setup:
Upto three stations will be on the air throughout the duration of the operation. A detailed roster has been prepared to optimise operations during the propagation windows to various geographies.

80 mtr ,40 mtr, 30 mtr – verticals

QSL Info:

QSLs will be handled by Manoj, VU2CPL. Logs will be uploaded to LOTW as soon as possible and this is the preferred QSL mode. OQRS will be active once the team is back on mainland. Direct QSL requests are highly discouraged and if this is the only option to request, please include an SAE and 3 GS. Please write to vu7t2017@gmail.com for log check and other enquiries. Internet connection is very poor on the island and please don’t expect any replies during the operation.

Financial Note:

This is completely self-funded operation. Our goal is to do some serious operation to give ATNOs and as much band fills to DXers around the globe and have fun. We welcome any donations which will go towards offsetting our costs of transportation and other large expenses. You may help us to cover our costs by donating any amount using link PayPal.me/vu7t or through donate option in OQRS.
