         and triband  &  duoband yagis  for  10 to  20  metres  and  vertical
         antennas  for  the   low  bands.   Subject  to   support  from   the
         manufacturers and the DX community, the antennas will be left on the
         island. Two 2 KW generators and 1000 litres of gasoline are  planned
         for maximum reliability of power supply. The prospects of a  serious
         6 metre operation depend on the  feasibility of taking an  amplifier
         and beam  antenna  to  Pitcairn  as  well  as  demand  for  such  an
         operation. Side  trips to  rare IOTA  Henderson (OC-056)  and  Ducie
         (OC-182) islands may be considered if there is enough interest  from
         the IOTA community. Donations are welcome to cover the high costs of
         extra equipment, transportation, generator and gasoline expenses and
         can be  sent to  Jukka Heikinheimo,  Rikunkuja 4,  FI-01420  Vantaa,

letters up to 25 grams from Japan  to North America, Europe and Australia  is
110 yen, and to South America and Africa it  is 130 yen. While one US$  might
not be enough (the current exchange rate is 109 yen for US$1), one IRC is all
right, as 1 coupon is equivalent  to one 130 yen stamp.  [TNX Islands On  The
