VK0 - MACQUARIE ISLAND Alan, VK0MM, is strictly abiding his operating schedule published at http://www.geocities.com/vk0ld/1.html.

If you contact him more often than twice ALL your QSOs will be deleted from his log. He also asks everybody NOT to spot him on the cluster network since this attracts only additional "Airwaves Policemen". RTTY operation may take place some time in August or September. QSLs will be mailed after his return home. Do NOT request them earlier!
