A note from Andy....
I've had the callsign 101ATOC-069 allocated to me for nearly a year and it was
agreed that I could use it at short notice due to my changing work commitments
and the propagation that has risen recently.
I've informed the AT committee by email that I'll use the callsign from 09:00am
UTC 1/10/12 for 3 weeks with Andy 26AT026 as the mail manager.
I'm using this callsign as I'd like to get a number of operators into my logbook
due to the pile ups I'm receiving and it's only fair that being in a rare
country that many operators get the chance to make the contact and receive the
QSL card if required.
Please note however that I'm NOT a DXpedition and the transmitting will be adhoc
due to work and family commitments.
The only simple rules that I have is please do not cause QRM and listen for the
callsign I'm calling,If anyone causes QRM repeatedly then I'll put you in the
logbook and Blacklisted,a bit of courtesy for other operators will help ensure I
can get as many as possible into the logbook.
Anyone that has already been identified as bad QRM makers in the past will be placed in the log 100% as long as they don't cause QRM again.
If the activation is successful I have the approval to use the callsign again
for a further 3 weeks in the future when time and propagation permits and I'll
always have the "170" callsign and available for QSL after a QSO.
All I can finally ask is,if I'm using my normal QRZ 101AT170 again in future
then please only expect a QSO to be placed in my logbook for a QSL."5/9 & 73's"
won't be entertained in any way.I do prefer a QSO as many know so please
understand I'm giving the opportunity for a quick log whilst the IOTA activation
If your a member of any other forums please foward on.
Many thanks and hope to log you,
