Operation from OC-111

Emae Island, OC-111During our stay in Vanuatu we are planning operation from Emae Island, OC-111, Shepherd Islands group, as well. Only a one-day operation can be expected. We will do our best to organize this trip, but it highly depends on the local circumstances and possibilities, as well as, the weather conditions. We will keep you informed.

HF Terrain Assessment

George, HA5UK has made the HFTA calculation for our QTH at the Nirvana Resort, Port Villa, Vanuatu. There is no vertical option available in the HFTA software, so the calculation based on dipole antenna at 10 meters up, as compromise. We will use verticals in salt water, so we expect even better results to these main directions.
