Новости IOTA (13 июля 2020 г.)

Поскольку совсем не было или было всего несколько новых объявлений IOTA (вероятно, из-за многих ограничений на поездки по COVID-19), снова было решено перечислить некоторые действующие операции IOTA, которые были активны на прошлой неделе с 5 по 11 июля (согласно DXCluster) и добавлено несколько сообщений (с фото) о работе с островов.

We have confirmed with the owner and the weather for the ferry crossing looks excellent. With luck we will have fine weather in the afternoon and get all of the antennas up tomorrow. If all goes well we should appear on air, most likely on 40m first sometime tomorrow night our time. Watch the DX Clusters and out Clublog live feed for details.» For more updates/details, see Grant’s Web page at: https://vk5gr-iota.net


OC-228. Andy, VK5MAV, reported on July 8th, that he is completely disappointed with the position of the Department of Nature for South Australia, which manages/controls access to the south Australian islands. However, Andy stated that he has «only one last option — very light, time and conditions limited, no night activity from Granite Island.» So during this past weekend (on July 12th), Andy planned to do a test visit on Granite Island sometime between 0100-0600z on 20/15 meters using CW with 100 watts into a GP and on battery power. He hopes to give someone a new island contact. Remember, Andy plans to activate Granite Island as VK5MAV/p for the RSGB IOTA Contest (July 25-26th). Activity will be CW only. QSL via ClubLog’s OQRS. NEW FLASH: Just before going to print, Andy sent out the following on July 12th, 8:02 AM (EDT): «If you tried to contact me but with no success — it’s still a hope. If the weather will let me — I will try again next Saturday or Sunday. Participation in IOTA Contest would be pointless as today’s activity demon-strated. My signal was very weak with such setup, especially during daytime. But in general — it was sad event. 7 hours, 150 approximately QSO — not important (for me, but for someone who has got a new island — completely different:-)) Tomorrow I will upload the log to ClubLog and IOTA Committee. As already written — there will be no cards. Well, if anyone needs it badly — my usual card with a sticker. However, I didn’t expect anything else, GP 20/15, ‘radials’ — copper wire into the water. 100 watts, battery powered. No tent, no shelter, no normal table/chair. The toilet is far away. Ward tea — in a thermos brought by me. Temp was + 12, windy with drizzle. I was lucky at least the rain did not happen. That’s it for now, folks 🙂 …. Cheers. Andy VK5MAV.»
