VK - Australia - 28.11.12

VK5VF 6m Beacon - VK5BC wrote: "You may have noticed that the VK5VF 6m beacon is now on 50.320MHz, previously 52.450MHz. It was reactivated over the last weekend (24/25 Nov) on this new frequency. Received Email from Mark VK5AVQ advising of the change;
The Adelaide 6m beacon is again operation, and confirming "on-air" 2 Meters and 70 cm's (which recently failed due to a power supply cap) 6 Meter has been off air for a while (it died). A decision was then made to build a new beacon, which Col VK5ACE kindly undertook.
At the same time we succumbed to pressure to shift the frequency from 52.450 MHz to 50.320 MHz to align with the WIA band plan.
A new feature is that the unit is now frequency locked to the GPS site standard, also a recent addition.
Other details remain unchanged such as power, location and antenna.
We are pleased to have the beacon back on air for the upcoming season.
Mark VK5AVQ, Colin (VK5ACE)"




ZL9 - Campbell Is. - 26.11.12 (Reminders)

The team and all equipment left Bluff on the very southern most point of New Zealand's south island today en-route to Campbell Island.
A journey of up to 60 hours on the Great Southern Ocean, before they reach the UNESCO World Heritage Campbell Island IOTA (OC-037) / World Flora and Fauna radio award (ZLFF-019) DXCC most wanted No. 11.
ZL9HR will be active on all bands from 160m to 6m as soon as the antennas are up and the equipment installed from November 28th to December 9th.
So if you want to contact the guys please remember from Wednesday to point any beams in Campbell Island direction. Here's hoping for mild weather for the sea trip and good propagation for the event. As always please refer to the DX'Pedition's website zl9hr.com for all details and latest updates.
According to ICPO bullettin John 9M6XRO, on Nov, 25, sent this SMS:
Rough weather between us and ZL9 so we will shelter in the lee of Stewart Island for one to two days. ETA ZL9 uncertain.
