VK9L/G7VJR – Lord Howe Island – April 2016
I will be visiting Lord Howe island, IOTA OC-004, between 15 April and 20 April 2016. I’ll be on the HF bands, currently planning 100W and CW only, using wire verticals. Baggage allowances on the Dash-8 aircraft are limited so I am probably not going to be able to carry a linear, but I have picked a favourable north-facing QTH for QSOs with Europe and will be focusing on the radio at peak times.

QSLs are handled by Charles, M0OXO. I will upload my log to LoTW. I do not need your QSL card so I would prefer it if you could use OQRS with Charles, to ensure you get your card without incurring any waste.
See you on the bands!
