IOTA OC-171 (Update)
Craig/VK4LDX will be active as VK4LDX/p from Magnetic Island between December 10-12th. He states, "The focus will be SSB, I don't do CW, but I may do some RTTY and PSK31 if I'm not getting through on SSB. I'll be using a 40m dipole favoring North America, full size aluminium vertical dipole for 15m and the HF9V multiband vertical for 10, 15, 20 and 40m. So there's no need to worry about beam headings, it's all up to band choice and propagation." The operating schedule for his operation is now published on his Blog page at:
