43SE144 & The Sierra Echo DX Group are no longer active. I have been closed down by the ACMA (Australian Communications & Media Authority). My equipment has been sold & now only have my Cobra 146GTL & antennas. All my radio friends can now find me on the LEGAL 40chs. I'm now 110% behind The World Radio Club. Over the coming months, there will be changes to this forum, deleting all SEDX criteria & putting in TWRC data. 43WR144. Pete.

hi all, I'm back again after a very eventfull 10 days. As some of you have probly heard, I was done by the ACMA (Australian Communications & Media Authority).

I got done with Section 46 - Unlicensed operation of radio communications devices

Section 47 - Unlawful possession of radio communications devices.

I had to despose of the devices within 7 days & advise them I complied. " In this instance, the ACMA has used discretion and has chosen not to issue you Penalty Infringement Notices or escalate to prosecution, however, any future non-compliance will be viewed more seriously." I'm going to frame the 2 ACMA Warning Notices & put them up on the wall. So in a nutshell, I got a severe official warning.

I had to post the RCI 2970 & Palomar Amp to Head Office in Melbourne & sort of sold the Icom & Kenwood to my amateur mate Mick, to look after them till I get my F-Call. I'm booked in to do the Amateur exam on the 23rd of this month.

So I'm back on air again with only the Cobra 146GTL 40 channel SSB & 12 watts.

HIHI all - Robert here. Use handle BOB DOLE on AM local and just picked up 2SE369 for DXing. I am a HAM KB8UFP general class, and picked up 11M cuz I found a Royce 1-632 that I fixed for cheap. Finding that it coincides with the apparent uptick in the sunspot cycle to really start to get some good DX is just awesome! I can't believe how much of a difference a few sunspots makes. Glad to be a part of the group 73 and gud DX de Bob 2SE369

  2011 Islands Fiesta
Posted by 43SE144 @ Fri Oct 29, 2010 11:28 pm
Introduction
Spread over 2 weekends at opposite ends of the year to ensure the best possible propagation for radio operators in both hemispheres, the 2011 EMU Islands Fiesta (EIF) © promises to be the biggest and most exciting experience for Islands On The Air (IOTA) enthusiasts on the world 11m calendar, regardless of whichever club they are associated with.

Not only does Part 1 of the EMU Islands Fiesta (EIF) coincide with the popular Oceania Contest but with IOTA activities from a number of affiliated clubs set to take place in continents in both hemispheres, this E.M.U. project can be described as an Islands DX-travaganza of the greatest kind — not just for IOTA Hunters chasing new islands — but for serious IOTA DXpeditioners also!

2011 Islands Fiesta Guidelines (Draft)
Dates:
* Part 1: January 8 00:00 UTC — January 9 23:59 UTC
* Part 2: June 4 00:00 UTC — June 5 23:59 UTC

Participation
* EMU affiliated and non-affiliated clubs and members are invited to participate
* To facilitate advertising of the event, all IOTA DXpedition teams must register their intended participation by contacting the Project Manager/s with the necessary details (i.e. Island to be activated, station, team members, callsign, etc.). Please note that all details must first be approved by the affiliated or non-affiliated club’s HQ Team.

Callsigns
* EMU does not issue callsigns for this event. Instead, participants are encouraged to use the systems in place within their own club and to follow the accepted IOTA callsign protocols of past activities which involves using the RSGB reference number as the callsign suffix (e.g. 14OD/EU-XXX, or 3AC/SA-XXX, or 43DA/OC-XXX, etc.).
* Advice or assistance will be provided by the Project Managers if required

Frequencies & Modes
* 26—27 MHz (Participants are encouraged to adhere to their national frequency allocation for citizens band operations)
* SSB, AM, FM

Categories
1. Home IOTA Operator/Team (i.e. Operator/s TX from his own island home)
2. DXpedition Operator/Team (i.e. Operator/s TX from an island which is not their normal residence)
3. IOTA Hunter (i.e. Operator who works IOTA stations from his home or portable location)
— OC
— EU
— AS
— NA
— SA
— Overall

Proofs
* To be judged as valid IOTA in this project, all proofs must be submitted to the F.A.C.T. (See http://www.emudx.com/fact/)
* Activating teams must provide all proofs (pictures, videos, GPS, etc.) within 1 month of the event taking place so that the activation can validated.
* If no sufficient proofs are received, the activation will be deemed as non-valid and the contacts made will not be taken into account for point scoring or the exchange of QSL cards.
* All proofs must be sent no later than 1 month after the activity to fact@emu.com or by post mail.
* Participants are encouraged to adhere to their own club’s DXpedition and proofs protocol also

QSL Confirmation Cards
