OC-276. (Update) Members of the "ORDA PAPUA DXPEDITION TEAM" will
activate for the first time Mapia Island as YB9Y. However, it was reported [edited], "Due to weather reasons, which the team received from the captain of the vessel Papua Lima, there is now a delayed departure from the original schedule. It can be confirmed that the team departure will be on the evening of October 20th, from Jakarta and will arrive in Bras Island – Mapia Island on the morning of October 22nd, and plan to start activity on the 22nd October at 09:00 UTC."
The YB9Y operation will be active until October 28th. Activity will be on 160-6 meters using CW, SSB and the Digital modes. QSL via YB1GJS, direct or by the Bureau. A OQRS will be used on ClubLog. For more details and updates, see:
OC-295. (Small correction to previous OPDX bulletin). John, 9M6XRO, tells OPDX: "Sebatik Island is actually NOT a new IOTA activation. We
members of the Borneo Amateur Radio Club first activated it as 9M4SEB in 2006. In 2010, 9M6DXX/P and 9M6XRO/P also operated from Sebatik. The IOTA website shows 22% of claimants with OC-295 from these operations. The confusion arises because Sebatik Island is a split sovereignty island - the northern part belongs to Malaysia and the south to Indonesia. This will actually be the first operation from the YB side. It
will also be a chance for me to work OC-295 :-)".
