Members of the Borneo Amateur Radio Club are mounting a DXpedition to activate the island of Sebatik in Borneo for the first time.
Steve, 9M6DXX, and John, 9M6XRO, aim to operate as 9M4SEB from around 1100UTC on 14 July until about 0300UTC on 17 July 2006.
Activity will be on 10 to 80m, CW and SSB, using up to three stations simultaneously. One station will use a beam antenna and two will use 400W amplifiers.
The RSGB IOTA Committee recently announced that Sebatik Island would count as a new IOTA group.
