E51HMK South Cook 2019 DXpedition

South Cook Islands DXpedition to Rarotonga (IOTA OC-013)

March 2019
by Hans-Martin DK2HM
QRV 14. – 22.03.2019
Holiday style operation!

I will be qrv on HF, mainly SSB but also digital modes (FT8)

I am planning to bring my Icom IC-706MK2G
together with an HLA300+ PA.

As antennas I’m planning to bring a Windom Dipole (80-10) and an EFHW 80-10 by myantennas longwire antenna.

My QTH will be in the north-west side of the island for best propagation especially to Europe,
I was also invited to use a local shack with beam and a more powerful PA aswell.
