Please see my blog at http://kk4oyj.wordpress.com for the latest details of activities
Please QSL direct to Buzz - NI5DX. All logs are uploaded to LOTW and Clublog.
Please be aware that I am only able to process cards sent to the 9H1MRL bureau once per year at best (which is why I appointed Buzz, NI5DX as my QSL manager). OQRS is active for this callsign - if you need a bureau card, please request it through OQRS and I will sent it when I can - probably also once per year.
I'm an itinerant radio amateur. I've been licensed since 2013 when I took the Advanced Extra Exam in the USA and gained the call KK4OYJ. I am now the holder of a permanent call in Malta 9H5G.
I operate mostly HF, typically SSB, PSK/RTTY/JT65/JT9. I have just one radio - the excellent TS-480HX accompanied by an LDG AT200 Pro II tuner.
I like to experiment with antennas and all those in use are home-brew - Typically, I use a dipole for all bands. depending on QTH, it may be configured as an inverted V. However, I plan to experiment with verticals for when I am near salt water.
I found this article both serious and amusing. http://www.ok1rr.com/index.php/operating/20-errare-humanum-est Well worth a read?

9H5G/C6A - Bahamas IOTA Activations 2014/2015
I intend to travel throughout the bahamas during the winter and spring of 2014 activating the following groups:NA-001 Great Bahama Bank group,NA-113 South Bahamas group, NA-054 Berry Islands, NA-048 Bimini Islands. Some of these are rarer than others but since I will be travelling by boat, I am required to validate NA-054 and NA-048 throught the IOTA Committee. I also hope to activate some islands that are not on the list, even although they seem to qualify (Hogsty Reef, Melita Cay). I hope to have more information on this soon.
I expect to activate these and other groups during winter 2014 and spring 2015.
Working conditions are TS-480HX, Vertical dipoles on 10m, 17m and maybe 20m. Power from a deep-cycle
Logging is likely to be paper and logs will be uploaded as time and available internet permit. I will not always be able to update the Grid Square here remotely - you may have to enter the information in your software manually.
