Craig VK5CE will be activating Gabo Island OC-196 on January 31 to February 1, 2017. The last organised IOTA DXpedition was back in 2001. There were a couple of lighthouse weekend operations but their focus was ILLW and not IOTA and hence QSOs were mainly with VK/ZL lighthouses and a little bit of DX, as indicated by there only being 2.8% claimed by current IOTA chasers in the last 8 years as per the 2016 IOTA Directory (page 118).
