News just in from Adrian KO8SCA is that the 4 ICOM IC7300’s have arrived safely in New York today.
Its great to have ICOM America as one of our Major Equipment sponsors who are loaning us these great transceivers for the DXpedition. They arrived in a Pelican case, ready for traveling!
A perfect day to do some prep work for our radio trip to Christmas and Cocos islands in a couple if weeks. Much thanks to the packer upper of the DXengineering hex beam last time. It makes reassembly to check so much easier.
