Here we are again and our next DXpedition plan…
After our team experiences from last years (5T0SP and J88HL) this time we decided to find a next DX target. We have checked many possible places. After some meetings and many discussions finally we choosed Christmas Island (OC-002).
It’s a long way from Europe with a few stops and there are luggage weight limits. ClubLog records locate VK9X on the 68th place of the Most Wanted Countries (28th in NA/SA, 103 rd in EU). From time to time the Island is visited by HAM groups. Overall it makes the DXpedition even more interesting and challenging.
After making up our mind we started to plan the DXpedition. Now our QTH is booked, we are testing the equipment and – the most important thing – our VK9X licensewas issued. We will be active as VK9XSP (the call we have applied for).
We will be active from October 18 till October 31. Activity on bands 160 – 6 meters. Modes: CW, SSB and RTTY. At least two stations will be active 24 hours a day. One station will take part in the CQ WW DX SSB Contest.
We will have internet access and we are going to upload our logs to ClubLog as often as possible.
Our QTH is located in the north-east part of the Island with wide open directions to Japan, North America and Europe.
Please visit other pages of our website where we published details about operators, equipment, planned frequencies etc.
We hope to meet you on bands from VK9X…
