Re: Bali on AO40 August 17-18

Hello Wayne,

That is one of our intention on AO-40 Bali QSO Party, which is to work as
much as possible State side, especially the eastern part. (from OI71pg).
We have chosen the areal which is open to horizon (in theory down to 0
degree), both east and west pass, which is 'Serangan'  (in the open space
We will use 3 parabolic dish (9 feet each) with dual-band patch system, and
operate simultaneously. We plan to be active on SSB, CW and PSK-31, subject
to condition of the bird.
This is quite a rare occasion, I know that most of our windows now are on
your office hour.

Best regards,

Reinhard Sual - YB0KTQ
