He states, "Exact dates to be advised. They depend on weather and boat availability - it's 400 km trip in open sea. Hopefully cyclone season will be finished than. Fishing boat will drop me off and come back 6 days later (hopefully).... I will stay on the reef for 6 days alone as usual. Sorry, no internet access from there, just satphone for emergency case (hopefully won't be used for such purpose). 
Activity will be mainly 20/15 meters using an Icom IC-7200 transceiver w/100w, 20/15m VDAs and multi-dipole antennas. Logs will be uploaded when back to mainland.
QSL via ClubLog's OQRS or via RN3RQ for Bureau QSLs (It will take 5-6 months). For more details, watch:
