MELLISH REEF (Update #3):
Mellish Reef 2014 DX-pedition Update #3
March 24, 2014
From Mackay, Australia
1. The full team assembled in Mackay and has been busy with assigned
tasks and making preparations for sailing. The boat will have a
crew of 5 experienced sailors and 11 passengers.
2. After several days of continuous rain, the boat is loaded with all
our radio equipment, stocked with food and other essentials. The
humidity has been excessive and very uncomfortable to those of us
unaccustomed to such conditions.
3. Our equipment arrived in Australia in excellent condition. We assembled
the CrankIR antennas and made final tuning adjustment to the folding
hex beams. All antennas tuned to specification.
4. On Sunday we met with the Mackay Boy/Girl Scout Council who will
receive some of our surplus equipment.
5. Current plan is to take on fuel for the boat and petrol for the
generators at about 1000 (local) on March 25th - immediately after
fueling we will set sail for Mellish Reef, as scheduled.
6. The team is in good spirits and eager to get underway, seasickness
medication in hand.
7. We ask that everyone please listen for the operator’s directions and
we will do our best to get you in the log.
8. We will see you in the pile-ups.
