Thanks to the Northern Ohio Amateur Radio Society, Northern Ohio DX
Association, Ohio/Penn PacketCluster Network, AB5K & the AR TelNet
Clusters Network CX3AN and W8GEX for the following DX information.

KH9, WAKE ISLAND (Update/Scheduled - Press Release #6): "The Wake Atoll
Commemorative DXpedition team has been approved for entry onto Wake Atoll.
Our equipment is already on Wake and in safe storage awaiting our arrival.
The 12-Operator team includes: Joe -AA4NN, John-K6MM, Craig-K9CT, Mike-
K9NW, Ralph-K9ZO, Lou-N2TU, Jim-N9TK, Mark-NA6M, Dick-W3OA, Joe-W8GEX,
Hal-W8HC, and Jerry-WB9Z.
The plan is for the team to assemble in Hawaii on 30-October, depart
01-November, arrive on 02-November and immediately erect antennas and
set-up the stations. There will be two CW and two SSB stations on the
air. The CW site will be located across from the Arrivals terminal and
the SSB site will be housed in a "beach house" near downtown Wake.
We are planning on being QRV 03-November through 15-November (Wake time).
If there are any changes, they will be posted on our website.
Logs will be uploaded to ClubLog as time and internet access allows.
This is a commemorative DXpedition. Our prime objective is to honor
the lives and contributions of the Forgotten 98 civilian contractors who
lost their lives on Wake during WWII. Some of these men have yet to be
identified. If you know any of the Forgotten 98 or their relatives,
modern DNA testing may identify their remains and provide for a proper
burial. Please take a moment to look through their names.
Wake Atoll is an active military base and access is extremely limited.
The Team is most grateful to the United States Air Force for allowing
this Commemoration to take place.
Also, Team wants to thank the DX community, including generous worldwide
Foundations, Clubs, Individuals, Equipment manufacturers and outlets for
their outstanding support of the Wake commemorative efforts. These DX-
peditions are extremely expensive and could not be accomplished without the
support of the entire DX community Visit the website to view our sponsors
and make your personal donation.
Please note! A few other DXpeditions will be on the air during the Wake
operation. To avoid the dreaded "not in the log", please be sure which
DXpedition you are working! Our operators will announce the K9W callsign
often to help identify your contact.
Please check our website frequently for updates. http:/
And don't forget to sign our guestbook!
