VP8IDX News 15 February 2016

VP8 Team was able to locate a great hill top location this afternoon offered by Mario VP8ALJ and we plan to have two stations dedicated to 160m plus 80/40m with low noise about 1 mile outside of town here in the Falkland Islands. We will be using VP8IDX call sign. In addition, we will have third station at the hotel with a triband vertical and vertical for 30m. Each station will have 1k amplifier. Our team will see you guys on the bands.
