F4BPO has used XV2A club station at the end of april 2012. If you had QSO with XV2A during this time, check if it was not with Greg. Logs are on ClubLog. QSL via home call and LotW.
Following informations asked by Hans de DK5JI, I have published a page of vietnamese callsign zones. Thanks to Bac Ai de XV2A for the update. Yan, XV4Y.
Nguyen Minh Duc de XV2REH and Nguyen Bac Ai de XV2A were hosted by ARRL at Dayton Hamvention. They toured ARRL Headquarters and discussed plan for the next IARU region 3 conference.
For a short stay and casual HAM Radio operation in Viet-Nam, the best way is to rent a shack and use the station’s callsign.
An agreement from both the VARC and the shack owner is necessary of course, but this reduce the delay needed to obtain the authorization to operate.
Malcolm VK6LC will be XV2LC and XV4LC from 12/08/2010 to 9/09/2010. He will operate from various places : Vung Tau, Ho Chi Minh City (Saigon), Ho Coc, Cu Chi (to be confirmed) and Can Tho. He will use a FT-857D transceiver with a 1kW linear for CW, Phone and digimode activities. Antennas will depend on the place he is operating from from wired antennas for low bands (including a 160m V-Beam), to Ground Plane and small beams at XV2A or XV4TUJ shack.
Malcolm has a long and rich relationship with Viet-Nam having operated from here many times from 1996 to 2007. He has been involved in may actions helping the development of radioamateurisme in modern Viet-Nam. He will arrive here more like a friend rather than a dxpeditioner.
