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!
