Wake Atoll Commemorative DXpedition
The Wake Atoll commemorative team's operation at the beginning of October, 2013 is progressing nicely.
The initial phase of the operation, planning, is essentially complete
and the Team has moved into equipment procurement and staging operations.
The equipment will be pre-staged in California and Hawaii prior to transport to Wake. Staging, pre-testing, packing, and shipping under the
direction of Tom, ND2T, and Kimo, KH6U, are major undertakings for DX-
peditions and are essential to assure equipment arriving on-time and
safely on Wake.
Our support Team has been expanded to include these additional Pilot
Stations: Hiroo, JA1WSX (Japan/Asia); Stan, KH6CG (Oceania) and Rich,
KY6R (USA). Additionally, Val, NV9L, has agreed to be the chief pilot
for the operation. As mentioned in the previous release, this support
Team is an essential part of the DXpedition's operation. The information
they gather from the DX communities' feedback during the event, allows
the 'on island team' to adjust their activities to meet changing band
conditions and optimize QSOs worldwide.
Stu, K6TU, will be developing in-depth propagation summaries which will
be posted on our website and Don, N1DG, has been guiding the team on
The Team wants to thank the DX Community, including generous worldwide Foundations and Clubs, equipment manufacturers and outlets for their outstanding support of the Wake Commemorative efforts. These DXpeditions are extremely expensive and could not be accomplished without the support of the entire DX Community.
