Cocos (Keeling) Islands 2016

Plan

Band plan VK 20M

Our DXpedition will be active from 160 to 10m as follows:

Band Modes Antennas
160 CW Inv.L – Beverages for receiving
80 CW + SSB Vertical – Beverages for receiving
40 CW + SSB Vertical
30 CW + RTTY Vertical
20 CW + SSB + RTTY 5 band beams
17 CW + SSB + RTTY 5 band beams
15 CW + SSB 5 band beams
12 CW + SSB 5 band beams
10 CW + SSB 5 band beams

We will always work Split. Please do not call on our transmit frequency. SSB split will start most of the time 5 KHz up to our transmit frequency. CW/RTTY will start 1 KHz up to our transmit frequency. We will also try to keep our splits as narrow as possible. If we are not listening UP, we are listening DN. Always listen to and follow the operators instructions. No specific frequencies has been choosen. The above table might change if the situation requires it.

Before calling, please make sure you can copy VK9CK well enough for a good QSO.
