Craig VK5CE earlier today announced at the IOTA Bash in Texas that Ashmore Reef OC-216 will be activated in early November 2017. The IOTA is claimed by just 3.2% (and will go lower after the annual listings are updated) and it is equal 5th in the world in the IOTA Most Wanted List. This is a one man operation using a tent and generator and the cost is over $14,000. Full details are at

In addition, Craig also informs DX-World he will also be operating from Rowley Shoals OC-230, more details to come on that one.
