tried to land on the island of Dibba Rock, but could not because of winds and waves. Another attempt -- "possibly" in January.

OC-272. (Correction) Last week we misunderstood Budi's, YF1AR, E-mail
sent to OPDX and reported that Kisar Island was postponed. This is not the case. Instead, operators Budi/YF1AR and Imam/YF4IR will still be active as homecall/8 from Kisar Island (LH IDO-376) by the time you read this until December 25th. However, Joppy/ YB8XM is the operator who had to "postpone due to a new work assignment".
