Sorry to say but I could not go to any outer islands this time such as Niuatoputapu (OC-191), Niuafo'ou (OC-123), Vava'u (OC-064) and Ha'apai (OC-169) due to restriction of transportation of COVID19.

I will activate A35JP again some time in 2022 depending on the situation of COVID19.

A35JP postponed

2021-06-12 | DX news

It is so sorry to announce that I finally had to decide to withdraw from Fiji and return to Japan on 14th June 2021 since my flight from 3D2 to A35 can not be approved by Tongan government even I spent two months wait for their decision. It is very unfortunate but due to Covid-19 pandemic in Fiji. 

I am planning to retry to enter Tonga in August or September this year via ZL.
