*Active Soon* 43DA/OC-141, Groote Eylandt Island


In late breaking IOTA news, big gun DX Hunter 43DA020 Geoff will be in action on the mic from

Australia’s remote Groote Eylandt Island (14.0°S 136.53°E) from mid October 2011, in what promises to be one of the most fervently tailed 26-27 MHz Oceania activations of 2011.

Already uploaded to Cluster dk, the callsign for this awe-inspiring activity will be 43DA/OC-141 with OC-141 being the RSGB billed identification number for this and other isles in the Northern Territory (Gulf of Carpentaria) North group.  These include Bickerton, Burney, Bustard, Chasm, Connexion, Gooninnah, Hawknest, Maria, Marinnan, Meringa, Morgan, Nicol, North East, North Point, Round Hill, Sandy, Winchelsea and Woodah islands.

According to all known IOTA databases such as Cluster dk and Islands Base Online, Groote Eylandt Island has never before been activated on 11m due to the fact it’s owned by Indigenous Australians and public access has always been denied!  Thanks to Geoff and his connections, this is about to change!
