VK9NT Norfolk Island May 2016
A team of five Australian radio amateurs will activate Norfolk Island from 20th May until 31 May 2016 to coincide with the Wireless Institute of Australia’s 2016 Annual General Meeting and conference, also being held on Norfolk Island.
Chris Chapman VK3QB, Brenton Vowles VK3YB, Luke Steele VK3HJ, Lee Moyle VK3GK and Allan Meredith VK2CA will activate VK9NT from 20th May to 31st May 2016 on all bands from 160m to 10m, CW, SSB & RTTY. Equipment will comprise two Kenwood TS-480HX transceivers and one Elecraft KX-3 transceiver with a KPA100 amplifier. These will feed dipoles strung up about 25-30 metres high between the majestic Norfolk Island Pines, and a Sloper antenna for 160m. The team will also be activating stations for the SOTA and WWFF awards programs.
It’s worth noting that a WIA Commemorative Station VI9ANZAC will also be activated over the AGM weekend. It will be a busy time with many radio amateurs expected to be on the island.
