American Samoa, KH8. Lance, W7GJ, wrote: In recent years, KH8 has become a very difficult catch on 6m. For that reason, this year I have made plans to activate American Samoa as KH8/W7GJ on 6m EME from July 13 to July 28. I will concentrate on July 13-21, when EME conditions are most favorable. We will also operate on terrestrial propagation modes if they become available, but expect to be busy contacting many single yagi stations via EME using JT65A mode. If you still need KH8 on 6m, I certainly hope you will take advantage of
 this opportunity to contact us!. The reason for this advance notice is to give you time to clear your schedule and finalize any station improvements before the DXpedition. The QTH selected has a negative horizon out over the ocean from moonrise in the east, around through north to moonset in the west, so we will have common moon with Europe on both moonrise and moonset. Current details plus future updates are available on my website: As with my previous 6m EME DXpeditions to the Pacific, contributions are very much needed and welcomed! It is a lot of effort and expense to haul a 6m EME station halfway around the world! Any amount is very much appreciated and can be submitted to my Pay Pal account via my email address of: Many thanks for your continued support, and I hope to put many of you serious 6m DXers in the log this July!
