To used the Australian vernacular, it looks like I "stuffed-up" my previous
posting on the VK6VZ/6 operation in the Stew Perry Topband Distance
Challenge on 29/30 December, specifically the possible use of
Transmission may be done between 1810 and 1815, with QSX 10 - 15KHz UP the
band, in the spirit of the old W1BB trans-Pacific QSOs. As the operation
is LP, if transmission is used higher in the band (i.e. 1820 - 1835) QSX up
1 is likely to be used.
In line with the new SPTBDC rules, it is hoped that 6m operation can be
carried out, by Phil VK6APH, operating as VK6APH/6. Phil is intending to
run 100W into a dipole 100m above the sea. I am reliably informed the
lighthouse is an amazing VHF location.
This operation will take place from Australia's first lighthouse, located
at Cape Leeuwin (grid OF75), 9 km north of Augusta and around 300 km south
A special QSL card commemorating the operation will be available for those
who contact VK6VZ/6 or VK6APH/6 at Cape Leeuwin.
