DX8DX UPDATE - Charles tells I.C.P.O. "Further news from Dindo DX8DX for the upcoming IOTA activation. Dindo's plans have changed which means he will be only able to activate one of the proposed Islands this time around. He hopes to make the crossing (between 12 and 18 hours depending on the Sea state) and to hopefully be in Pangutaran (IOTA OC-188) by 26 September. He will remain there until the 3rd October. Of course I must again remind you that Dindo will be working intermittently throughout this period so operating will be sporadic periods but nevertheless as he is now there for a full week and that this is the rarest of the groups, we hope this will be a popular outcome for the IOTA chasers." [M0OXO] Futher Update 24/
09/2014 11:30:53 PM - Dindo has now arrived on Pangutaran Island (IOTA OC-188) ahead of schedule and hopes to be QRV in the coming hours. [M0OXO]
