Bahamas IOTA operation

Rick, K6VVA, reports: I am now scheduled to return to the Bahamas again. This time QRV as C6AVA on North Bimini Island IOTA NA-048 from 11 to 14 January (2013).

As always, this will be a primarily CW activation. I may also be QRV in the NAQP CW Contest.

IOTA NA-048 is still needed by 86.1% of ASIA/JA IOTA Claimants, 70.2%
in EU and more than 54.3% in NA. Special efforts will be made for ASIA/JA as I did from NA-054 due to the polar path route. Hopefully propagation will cooperate.

An important note to Italian IOTA Chasers:
If I send your callsign correctly the first time, please do NOT repeat your callsign 2 or 3 times as this unnecessarily wastes time. Stations who repeatedly call out-of-turn (Pileup "Bullies") will be confronted and run the risk of NOT getting into my log. If you cannot copy me, then please do NOT call.
