Cocos Keeling Islands 

October 2011



DL7AFS, Babs and DJ7ZG, Lot  starts again another dxpedition!

We will be QRV from October 19th till November  9th from Cocos Keeling Island.

6m - 80m - mainly in RTTY, PSK and SSB  -  QSL via DL7AFS

Look on the usual DX-frequencies.

Online Log is  available here (opens a new window)

Any further news will be published on this homepage

We will be not active on 160m, due to different reasons:

1. We can't carry much luggage with 2 OPs ( my YL and me)
2. Our space on the rental QTH is limited
3.We have no extra operator - therefore we can't spend our time for 160 m
4.WFF - activity from VKFF-577
4. Please remember, that PSK and RTTY mode in VK-Land on 80m just the range 3620 to 3640 allowed

Cocos Keeling Island

Australia's last unspoilt paradise lies in the azure waters of the Indian Ocean, kissed by the sun and caressed by fragrant trade winds.

Situated 2750 kms northwest of Perth, Western Australia, the Cocos are a group of coral islands that form two atolls. Only two of the 27 islands are inhabited - the rest are waiting for you to explore them.

Cocos has a mild tropical climate. Temperatures through-out the year range from a beautiful 20 to 32 degrees Celsius.

The weather for most of the year is dominated by trade winds from the South-East of approx. 15 knots.
