    VK9WX - Willis Island

    VK9WX Willis Island. Sands Sandeep Purushan, VU2WXW, VK4WXW is currently active as VK9WX from Willis Island, IOTA OC - 007, Australia.
    He is working on HF Bands.
    DXCC Country - Willis Island.
    Information from his qrz page:
    The Australian Bureau of Meteorology has a weather monitoring station on Willis Island. The station was established in 1921, it serves as an early cyclone warning service for the state of Queensland.

    The meteorological station is staffed by crew of 4 that rotate every 6 months. There are 2 Observers (including myself), 1 Officer In Charge (OIC/Observer) and 1 Technician. I have been on the Island since October 2022 and will be here until the end of April 2023.

    My regular callsign is VK4WXW I am based in Brisbane QLD Australia.

    My operating position on Willis Island is a Yaesu FT-891 transceiver with a DX Commander Classic multiband vertical antenna. I have an SDRplay receiver that I am yet to setup.

    I am hoping to make a number of contacts during my time here. Thank you for visiting the VK9WX QRZ page and look forward to having a QSO with you on the air!

    73’s & Best Regards,

    Sands (VK9WX)

              The full log has now been uploaded to LOTW. You may need to QRX a while to see results as the queue at ARRL LOTW can sometimes take a while during the Holidays.
              A special four side QSL Card is in the Print Process for VK9WX.
