It happens sometime in South Pacific but it really happend.
Today's departure suddenly postponed to tomorrow (21st March 2017, PM6:00 Local time) by unknown reason in Tongan NAVY.
Sorry for the delay but this is Tonga....
I will retry to activate Niaufo'ou Island (OC-123), Kingdom of Tonga as A35JP/P between 22 to 28 March 2017. His Majesty Armed Force of Tonga (NAVY) will officially cooperate this activation by transporting me to OC-123 as their mission.
It has been 7 years since last activation of A33A (by K6HFA). OC-123 is located 570km north of the capital Nuku'alofa, and is shaping volcanic rim approx. 8km in diameter with 650 population.
It will be the most challenging DXpedition in my ham life ever because:
There is some possibility to land OC-191 Niuatoputapu Island on the way back to Nuku'alofa. I might QRV from OC-191 for a few days if possible. I hope any tropical Cyclon will not come during this period
See you on the air!!
