The next IOTA DXpedition

I'm pleased to announce that my next IOTA DXpedition will be to Bremer Island OC-185 on April 18 to 23 2012 and the antenna will be a Spiderbeam 10-15-20 tribander on a 10m Spiderbeam mast.

When we were living in Townsville in north Queensland it was a great launching base for doing four DXpeditions to three different VK4 IOTA’s as VK4LDX/P:
  • Fitzroy Island OC-172 (October 2010)
  • Magnetic Island OC-171 (December 2010)
  • Horn Island OC-138 (March 2011)
  • Magnetic Island OC-171 (April 2011)
Now that we've moved back to Alice Springs, Northern Territory I'm looking forward to operating from a VK8 IOTA. 


  1. Hi Craig, hope preparations are all going well. Just sorry I won't be home in time to work you from VK8. I'll keep an eye out and see if I hear you from VK0/M. Envy you mate. best of luck.

  2. Hi Trevor

    Yes hoping for some big pile ups, although they won't be as big as yours on Macquarie!

    Hope to see you on the bands mate :)
