In May 2014 from the 20th until the 27th I was on Norfolk Island and operating using the call sign VK9DAC.
The trip was to do some bird watching and Amateur Radio operation. During the trip I activated Mt Bates 314m, 4 points VK9/NO-001 for Summits on the Air (SOTA). Where I made 39 contacts.
I registered with the Islands on the Air (IOTA) web site and look forward to contacting those who have not worked Norfolk Island. Several contacts were made with other IslandsOperations
