After 4 days on the air from Niuatoputapu Island (OC-191) as A35JP/P, I have safely returned in Japan on 27th August 2017. Total QSOs were 930 this time because of 3days delay of flight.

All Log has been uploaded to LoTW/Clublog. OQRS/SASE/Buro is now available. QSL cards are same as the one printed in 2014.

Thank you for all those who called A35JP/P even in very bad condix.

Good news!

Negotiation with local airline successed now. I will fly by special arranged flight on 19th August 2017 (Saturday) and will start QRV from evening at local time (around 0800 GMT on 19th August) .  If I could land OC-191, I will QRV from there until 23rd August (Wedness day) as A35JP/P.

As there is no internet, please allow me to upload log after I return to civilization in JA.

Weather tomorrow here looks good. Cross your finger...

See you in pile up.
