UPDATE II – See comment below from BA4TB.

UPDATE: Last weekend the seas were too rough for sailing  to Yongxing so the B7CRA team had to cancel their plans. However, they hope to try again this weekend coming, but they will only receive confirmation they can go some 10 hours beforehand. Therefore, this activity is very last minute.

April 14, 2014 – A group of Chinese hams will be active from the rare IOTA AS-143 (Yongxing Island), Paracel Islands sometime between April 15 to May 15. The actual operation period depends on the schedule of the ship.

Only one radio is allowed to be on the air 24 hours around the clock due to the limit of ops by the local authority.

The assigned callsign will be B7CRA. QSL via BA4EG.
