A team composed of 6 operators (Jeff W6UX, Rich AE6RS, Steven K6SGH, Kenan KR6J, John KQ6ES and Tim N6GP) will be active from Anacapa island (IOTA NA-144) during the IOTA Contest (July 28-29, 2012 ) as W6UX/P.Anacapa is part of the Channel islands, just a few miles away from the California coast and is composed of several small volcanic islets.
NA-144 has been confirmed by right at 25% of IOTA chasers. The last known operation from this IOTA was also thanks to the same team during the July 2011 IOTA Contest.
Jeff, W6UX published some nice pictures of last year’s activity from Anacapa on his picasa album.
Look for W6UX/P from 22:00 UTC July 27 to 12:00 UTC July 29 and remember that all QSOs made with IOTA stations during the contest can be credited directly by uploading the contest log.
