After the fun of the VK4LDX/P DXpedition to Fitzroy Island on IOTA OC-172 during October 16-22 2010, see http://vk4ldxoc172.blogspot.com/, my wife has agreed to another trip to a different IOTA. So a shorter 3 day expedition over a single weekend with my XYL Michelle is being planned for
December 10-12 2010.
I will be using the same strategy by using a multiband vertical close to the beach. There are two key improvements I need for this trip. Firstly to have the accommodation grounds to myself so I don’t have to worry about upsetting guests or managers with antennas, especially the radials. Secondly and most importantly, to find a location that still has the same water path to JA and Europe that Fitzroy Island did, but to also have a good take-off to North America. I believe I’ve ticked both of these boxes with the location I’ve booked.
