XV2LC will soon start operation from Ho Coc

Malcolm will soon be in Ho Coc, in the Ho Chi Minh City nearby province of Ba Ria – Vung Tau. He had enjoyed delightful pile-ups from Saigon were conditions on 20m were fair. His setup in XV2A HCMC station was good but industrial and human activities related QRM was far stronger than the years before, making traffic sometime exhausting.

Operations in Ho Coc should start from tuesday in the evening or wednesday. Malcolm will focus on lower bands and CW, installing inverted V for 160m and 80m… He will also have a vertical for 20m. Enjoy DX!

XV2LC and XV4LC from August 12th to September 9th

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.
