Aki, JA1NLX, will once again be active as 3D2YA from Mana Island
(OC-121) sometime in October or November. He was there in 2008
and 2009.

Activity will be on 40-10 meters using CW (only during the first half of his operation), SSB and the Digital modes.

Suggested frequencies are:
CW - 7015, 10115, 14040, 18085, 21040, 24905 and 28040 kHz
SSB - 14260, 18125, 21260, 24950 and 28460 kHz

His equipment will be an IC-7000 w/100W into a Bravo 5 1/2 wave vertical Dipole and HFp Vertical.

QSL via JA1NLX, direct w/SASE (2 USDs) or OQRS
(Direct [3 USDs] or Bureau). Do not send IRCs. Do not send your QSL via
the Bureau (not a JARL member). He will send you QSL via the Bureau from GlobalQSL only if you request OQRS Bureau.

LoTW and Online Log will be available when he returns home -- unless he has a good internet connection on the island.

Daily updates may be uploaded on the following Blog page, if internet is available on the island: http://ja1nlx-aki.blogspot.jp

This is fantastic news that Aki, JA1NLX, will go return to Mana Island in October or November of this year. For the last six years we haven’t heard any news from the island.

It's good to keep notes like this. Most people will forget, but when you have frequencies, locations and times recorded you can keep in your memory banks what it was like before.

It is true that most people will forget and recording things is the best way to preserve a memory. Most people have not realized that the human mind easily forgets.

That's a great news. I respect people who take their time to make records because it will be useful in the future to track what had been done in the past. Not to mention the effort he did because I can only imagine how hard it is to broadcast from an island with poor reception.

Indeed, making records never occurs naturally for me and I am sure this is also true for many people out there. At times people do what they have to do out of passion because I can imagine it is not easy broadcasting from an island.
