Maldives on amateur radio

Andrew, G7COD, will be operational from Adaaran Hudhuranfushi in the North Male Atoll, Maldives, AS-013 using the call 8Q7AK from 5th January to 16th January 2011. Using SSB and CW on the 80 to 10 metre bands including WARC, he hopes to be operational most days in his spare time from approximately 07:30 to 08:30, 09:00 to 10:30, 13:00 to 1500 and 17:30 to 18:00 UTC.

This time it is with work, not holiday, therefore I hope to be qrv during my spare time.

Spot frequencies to be used are:

3.793, 7.063, 14.190, 18.133, 21.253 and 24.953 MHz SSB +/- 10KHz to allow for QRM.

For comprehensive details of QSL information etc, please check 8Q7AK on QRZ.COM

IMPORTANT NOTE: I am completely up to date with the return of QSL's for those received direct from previous activations. If you have not received yours, please send your QSL again.

All QSL's should be sent via the bureau or direct to G7COD.

Please note: 8Q7AK is approved for DXCC credits.

All the very best for 2011.

Andrew, G7COD
