VK8BI DXpedition – IOTA OC-185

07 Mar 2012 15:00 | Tim Beaumont

I'm pleased to announce that my next IOTA DXpedition will be to Bremer Island OC-185 on April 18 to 23 2012 using the callsign VK8BI. I will be running 400W into a Spiderbeam yagi for 10-12-15-17-20 on a 10m Spiderbeam.

Operation will be SSB only (although I will have the capability of running PSK31/RTTY at rare moments). OC-185 was last activated in 2004 for two days and prior to that in 1999 and is only claimed by 20% of IOTA program participants.

A strong focus will be on North America and Europe. Full operation details are available at which gives details of the blog site that outlines best operating times to different regions of the world.
