Rotuma DXpedition 2018


(IOTA OC-060)

> > > 3D2EU < < <



We (Tony 3D2AG, Heye DJ9RR, Ernoe DK2AMM, Hans DL6JGN and Ron PA3EWP) are glad to inform you that our group will be on from Rotuma Island (IOTA OC-060). The operate period is of February 23th to March 16th 2018.

The coordinates: 12o30' S, 177o05' E

Rotuma is a Fijian dependency, consisting of Rotuma Island and nearby islets. These volcanic islands are located 646 kilometres north of Fiji. Rotuma Island itself is 13 kilometres long and 4 kilometres wide, with a land area of approximately 43 square kilometres.
Although the island has been politically part of Fiji since 1881, Rotuman culture more closely resembles that of the Polynesian islands to the east. Because of their Polynesian appearance and distinctive language, Rotumans now constitute a recognizable minority group within the Republic of Fiji.

We have 2 Radio locations on the western peninsula of Rotuma. One in Fapufa in the south. This is the annual QTH of Tony. The second QTH is in Maftoa on the north coast. This is a joint operation using the resources of Tony and the European group. We are guests of Pita Aisea and John Bennett.
At both locations we use diesel gensets for 24h electrical power.
Activity will be on 160-10 meters using CW, SSB and the Digital modes. We will use two stations (2x K3, 1x Expert 1,3k-FA and 1x Tokyo Hy-Power HL-1.1KFX), a Spiderbeam and vertical antennas.
Subject to a reliable Internet connection, we will upload the log to Clublog on a daily basis. Otherwise the complete log will be uploaded upon our return.
QSL via DK2AMM (OQRS, direct, bureau, LotW).
