Noel F6BGC will be active as 8Q7NC from Maldives Islands - 12 to 22 March 2016.
I am on the island now.
The Communication Authority of Maldives gave the following callsign : 8Q7NC ,
the same I received in 2007, 2010 and 2013.
My location is Thulhagiri Island in North Male Atoll '.
The station will be very simple:
Icom IC706 MK2G, microHAM usb3 interface, Icom tuner AH4
and Alinco switching power supply.
The home made vertical antenna is a fishing rod, about 10m up,
installed on the beach with lots of radians, a few meters from the sea.
I will enter the qso using win-test.
This "Suitcase Expedition" will be an opportunity to spend good time with my family,
and I will turn on the radio from time to time, alternating with seaside activities.
This year I will try to be active from 7 to 50 MHz, depending on conditions,
in 3 modes : SSB, CW and RTTY.
On the island the internet access is limited, I am not sure to be able to connect to a cluster,
so listen the bands and monitor the cluster.
Thanks for sending some spots if you happen to hear me.
There are 4 hours delay with Europe, and night falls near 18h00 local time, 2:00 p.m. in Europe, so it will be easier
to contact me in the morning and at noon.
To send any information, my way, please contact Jean Louis F5DJL, or Damien F5RRS, they will find a way to inform me.
QSL direct to F6BGC, or via REF bureau.
I already replied to all direct QSL for 2007, 2010 and 2013.
All 3 logs have been uploaded to LoTW and ClubLog.
I confirmed all qso via REF Bureau for 2007 and 2010.
For 2016, I will answer to all direct QSL with SAE and Green Stamp (s).
Logs will be on LoTW and ClubLog within 3 months after my return.
