JA1NLX/VK4 from OC-187 updated

Propagation forecast in August by VOACAP online says that the window may open ........

For EU
05z - 07z on 14MHz, 08z - 10z on 21MHz, 10z - 12z on 18MHz, 14z - 16z on 14MHz and 21z - 23z on 14MHz

For NA
00z - 06z on 21MHz, 04z - 08z on 18MHz and 06z - 13z on 14MHz

This is my operating plan at present time. As you know KU2F/VK4 is now active from OC-187.
He says that best time/freq is 21z - 23z on 14MHz for EU and 11z - 13z on 14MHz for NA.

Anyway your suggestion and advice will be very much appreciated.
Lizard Island does not provide internet service in the room. It is only available in guest lounge.
Please do not send me direct e-mail or request message on DX spot during vacation because
I can not read anything online.   Stay tuned.....


  1. Hi Aki!

    I think that your frequency schedule is good for EU.

  2. Hello!
    Long path usually works with S9-signals around
    05-07Z on 20 mtrs.
    Northern Scandinavia has no chance 21-23Z
    KU2F was VERY weak at that time.
    Hope to work You!
