UPDATE – Part 1 to the VK5MAV/6 story can be read here

September 13, 2016: Many ops were wondering if Andy was ok due to inactivity from the island. He updates IOTA chasers:

“Thank you all who was worrying and tried to help. I’m back in Derby in one piece, scratched, limping, with stretched leg muscles, bit fried skin, with few new scars and new sudden financial debts. Still is bloody scared. Chance to not get any QSO from me was extremely high, close to 100%. Anyway all is good now. Longer report will be published in 2-3 day when back home. Club Log will be uploaded bit later – used paper log for last 3 days. Sorry I didn’t spend enough time on bands – most important thing was to survive. Hope most of IOTA enthusiasts have got new island.”


July 31, 2016 – Andy, VK5MAV has announced he will be active from Viney Island OC-266 between September 9-13, 2016. QRV on HF bands. QSL via Club Log or Direct.
