The equipment I used on Norfolk Island was an Icom IC706MKIIg, 20 amp switch mode power supply, an ATU/antenna analyser and two antennas.
The antennas were a loaded dipole and an 80m dipole wire antenna.
For summits on the Air activities I used a Yaesu FT 817 with 14v volt LiPo battery and the loaded dipole (Buddipole).
I operated on HF bands with the majority of the 239 contacts made on 15m.
My operating time was most afternoons and evenings.
This internet connection on the Island is via a private carrier and I was required to purchase bandwidth to access the internet. The service was slow.
Steve VK3TSR provided great assistance back in Australia by passing on emailed information.
Telecommunications is also through a private service provider. This is quite costly.
The SOTA activation was on Saturday the 24th May 2014 at about 1pm local time.
The island time zone is UTC+10.50
Many thanks to Matt VK1MA who was of great assistance with the SOTA activation. Sorry we could not make contact on 12m.
I used the following frequencies as calling frequencies +- QRM and will QSY as required.
6m 50.150MHz, no 6m contacts.
