OC-084. Tov, T32TV, who was previously on Christmas Island, is now
active from the rare IOTA Washington Island. His length of stay was not mentioned. Tov is 100% on solar power at this time. Not enough power to run his linear amp. If anyone has any ideas how he can get more power out of the solar setup, please let Stan, KH6CG, know. Stan is Tov QSL Manager. He states, "I am hoping we can possibly get some necessary solar equipment donated to him to increase his storage capacity and total power. Tov is running a Yaesu FT-450D and a Hygain
AV-640 vertical. 6-40meters. Presently running only 100 watts, but does have a linear amp that can run as much as 600w if he can get the power to run it." Activity so far has been on 20 and 10 meters SSB.
