Wake Island

Wake Atoll Commemorative DXpedition

The Wake Atoll Commemorative team's operation is progressing nicely.

Most of the equipment needed for this operation has been received and
is being pre-tested prior to shipment to the staging areas. As mentioned
in the previous release, the equipment will be pre-staged in California
and Hawaii prior to transport to Wake. Staging, pre-testing, packing are
essential to assure equipment arriving on-time and safely on Wake.

The two week 'on air' dates are anticipated to start the last week of
September or first week of October. This is entirely dependent on the
military flight schedule into and out of Wake Atoll and this has yet to
be determined. As soon as this is established, we will issue another press release and post it on our website.

Several good options are being considered for our two operating sites
which will be announced soon.

Please note! There are a few other DXpeditions which will be on air
during the Wake Operation. Our band plan, established in early March and documented on our website will be used during our operation.
To avoid the dreaded 'Not in the Log', please be sure which DXpedition you are working! Our operators will announce the K9W often to help identify your contact.

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.
