i'm a bit confused: He was qrv from Christmas Island locator OH29 , but did not make it to Cocos Keeling locator NH87?
Yes, he was on his flight to Cocos Keeling Island but the plane had to return to Perth due to bad weather on the route.
Some days later Mikio san found a flight from Perth to Christmas Island which allowed him to activate VK9QO.
Did anyone get a qsl from VK9QO?
no, please give Mikio san some more time
VK9QO confirmed via LOTW today. Took 22 days, pretty fast. So, yes, Mikio
