OC-295 Sebatik Island IOTA DX'pedition 24-27 September 2010

Not being much of a BLOGGER I like to spend my time in the workshop making things and lots of noise :-)

A while back you may have read that John 9M6XRO purchased a Hexbeam off me for portable/IOTA events and the like of. Tim M0URX has just posted on his blog that the team is ready to go on September the 24 - 27 OC-295 Sebatik Island.

I would like to wish them a safe journey and successful DX'pedition.

Write up thanks to Tim M0URX



9M6XRO, 9M6DXX, 9W6AMC, 9W6LEE and G3USR plan to activate the rare IOTA island of Pulau Sebatik, OC-295, from 24 to 27 September inclusive. The operation will be on 10 - 80m with the emphasis on 15 - 40m. Two stations will be used with amplifiers to a HexBeam and verticals located directly above the sea water.

Callsigns will be 9M6XRO/P on CW and 9M6DXX/P on SSB and it is hoped to have both stations on the air during all the major openings to Europe and North America. OC-295 has only been claimed by 14.2% of IOTA participants, having been activated just once before, in July 2006. QSL both callsigns via M0URX, direct, bureau, or LoTW.
