Новости IOTA (6 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 28 июня по 4 июля (согласно DXCluster) и добавлено несколько сообщений (с фото) о работе с островов.

     on their QSNs on the PacketCluster reports...

OC-139. Grant, VK5GR, on July 5th, updated the following on his VK5KI Expedition to Kangaroo Island between July 13-18th [edited]: «Preparations are almost complete for the VK5KI mini DXpedition to Kangaroo Island. We are on track to depart Monday week (July 13th) on the Sealink Ferry to the island, part of the South Australia State East Centre IOTA group. Andrew, VK5AKH, and I are preparing to take two stations, the first comprising an Elecraft K3S+KPA500, with the second consisting of an Icom IC7600 and SPE 1.5K-LFA (the amplifier that didnt make it to Tonga). We will have a HexBeam on 20-10m, a dedicated 40m vertical and a multi-band vertical for 160-10m. We will be operating SSB, CW and multiple digital modes, including FT8. We do not expect to run Fox/Hound mode this trip but stay tuned on the clusters as we could switch over if we are receiving excessive calls.» For more updates/details, see Grant’s Web page at: https://vk5gr-iota.net
