Lolata Island, Papua New Guinea, IOTA OC-240

Log HB9CWA: 11. October 2004, 11:02 UTC on 15m, CW












QSL-card >>




Roger, P29SX used an HF6 vertical covering 80m, 40m, 20m, 15m and 10m mounted on a spit of sand which was about 60ft from the 'shack'. There was plenty of space to run out radials for each of the five bands.



Operating from Loloata was mainly through the hours of darkness with the bands opening a couple of hours before sunset and closing a few hours after sunrise. 
P29SX used TS570DG tranceivers and operated from nice and well ventilated  shacks.














P29XF's WARC Band vertical was precisely where any good HF vertical antenna should always be - up to its knees in salt water!



According to the IOTA Directory, this was only the third amateur radio operation ever from Loloata. 

This island provides an ideal location for DX-pedition style operations.
