A35JP/P OC-123 QRT after 1,600 QSOs

2017-03-31 | Past DX peditions

A35JP/P from OC-123 Niuafo'ou Island (ex. Tin Can Island) started its operation at 23rd March 2017, 0701z (First QSO JA0RUG), and QRT at 28th March 2017, 1019z (Last QSO with AI5I). Approx. 1,600 QSO were made during this period. After QRT, and after 40 hours voyage, I have safely returned Nuku'alofa now.

Because of AC power limitation (Poor generator) and Internet-free in the Island, I had to log-in by hand writing to the note-book, please let me have some time to convert from note book to e-log. Once I returned in Tokyo next week, I will upload to LoTW and Clublog as soon as possible.

My QTH was "Esia Village". I could use a room of TCC's switching station (Tonga Telecommunications Corporation) .

As I have to go to 6Y5 soon, Please wait for requesting QSL card to me for a while. QSL card might be issued from May or June. Apology for your patience.

For the time being, please enjoy some photographs on OC-123....

Thank you for all those who called me. I know that there are still many stations who need OC-123. I will be there again some time in 2019. So CU soon.
