AF-115 New IOTA

NOVEMBER 14, 2021 – Over a year has passed since this initial info was released. On the ground support is still available and new preparations will begin in the early new year with a view to activating AF-115 in the last quarter of 2022. A lot of planning is needed. The callsign may also change. Further updates to follow.

DECEMBER 2, 2020 – As news of Covid vaccines emerge – with hopefully an improving picture across the world by the middle of next year – plans for this particular island activity will restart after March 2021. Future updates will be posted here.

AUGUST 25, 2020 – Earlier this year, an experienced IOTA team were issued with the callsign ST6SIT. Their intention was to activate Mukawwar island, AF-115 – a never before activated IOTA in the Red Sea, off Sudan. Paperwork, on the ground support and planning was ongoing then Covid-19 struck. Like everyone and everything else, the team will wait until the Covid situation improves globally with a view to eventually renewing the ST6SIT license and restarting plans.

The Pulap atoll is part of the West Chuuk Group (OC-155). This IOTA reference was activated twice, in 1979 by DF6SL/KC6, who operated from Puluwat, and in 2004 by V6O (W5BOS), who operated from Pulap. The group is currently is high demand, (MWL 14.4%). The Satawal atoll is part of the East Yap Group (OC-299), which is still to be activated for the first time.The plan is to arrive in Weno by plane, and sail first to Pulap, located approximately 240 km away westward, and then to Satawal, situated another 240 km further to the west. Radio operations will be carried out from each atoll for 5 days (4 nights). There is no WiFi communication on these islands, but the chasers will be able to track our progress via the InReach system. The respective link will be made available on this website before the start of the expedition. This will also allow us to be in communication with the Pilot station, who will inform the chasers on our progress, and provide us with appropriate feedback from them. Local supply boats sail to Pulap from Weno (Chuuk), and to Satawal from Colonia (Yap). However, their schedule is irregular, and doesn't provide for stays of a few days on the islands. Additionally, such boat rides can be postponed or cancelled with short notice, due to a myriad of factors. Since our project requires a specific time schedule, the only option was to charter a boat. This will not only guarantee that our goals can be achieved, but will ensure that the overall travel time will be kept at a minimum.
