VU7, LAKSHADWEEP ISLANDS
Manoj, VU2CPL, informs OPDX that he is planning to visit Kavaratti Island (AS-011) in the Lakshadweep Islands group [ranked 60th on ClubLog's most wanted list], along with Siddhu, VU3NXI, between November 29th and December 2nd. They will be active as VU7MS. Activity will be holiday style on 40/20/17/15 meters using CW and SSB. They will be near the IOTA frequencies as much as possible and will be operating split always. Only one station/operator will be active at a time due to limitations in logistics (Only a small aircraft can fly to the island and their baggage allowance is only 15 kg per person). Equipment is an IC-7300 with PA2500 Linear Amplifier. Antennas will be simple verticals at the beach on spiderpoles from
