Jacek, SP5APW informs DX-World that he has plans to be active from both OC-092 and OC-244 in March 2023. Here’s the full info from Jacek:

Originally this activity from Calayan Island was scheduled for spring 2020. Unfortunately, the COVID-19 pandemic prevented my plan from being implemented. So, I am coming back to this idea after 3 years.

This time the activation of OC-092 will be preceded by the activation of OC-244 from Marinduque Island. From OC-092 I will work using the callsign DU1/SP5APW and from OC-244 as DU1/SP5APW/P.

As far as I know the last activation of OC-092 took place in June 2017 (DU2/JA1PBV) and the activation of OC-244 in October 2018 (4G1L). So, I expect a lot of interest from IOTA hunters.

The equipment I will use is: ICOM 7300, Yaesu FT-857D, wire antennas and Buddipole. Operation on the 40-10m SSB and FT-8. Operation on 6m digi modes only.

  • DU1/SP5APW/P – Marinduque Island, OC-244 during March 9-14.
  • DU1/SP5APW – Calayan Island OC-092 during March 18-26.
