VK9L, LORD HOWE ISLAND (Update/Press Release -- Written by Christian/DL1MGB,
July 9th 2014, 20:07) [edited]: It has been a while since the last news
about our (VK9DLX/VK9LM) DXpedition to Lord Howe Island in October 2014.
But that doesn't mean that nothing happened since then. OK, the experience
we gained with the last DXpeditions in preparing and packing the sea freight
makes it easier with the time. But nevertheless it was again a huge amount
of work to get all ready to go.
  Nearly the whole team met in Goch at the great station of DR1A where we
packed all our equipment. Though we already have a good selection of radios,
amplifiers and antennas on our stock, there are always new ideas coming up
with each DXpedition which lead to even more equipment. So it was this time.
For the planned contest operation as well as for the normal DXpedition we
plan to set up two-radio setups which are sharing the available antennas.
Also the antenna planning needed some brain power. For the high bands we
will use both horizontal and vertical polarized monoband antennas for each
band, because they were available and because they minimize interferences
between the bands. Having a big field to set up antennas is good, but having
the shack at one end of the property, you need long cable runs to feed all
the antennas. Therefore over 1,500 meters of coax cable and another 1,400
meters of control cable went into the boxes. At the end of the weekend we
had over 3 tons of equipment packed in nearly 60 different boxes. They will
now be shipped from Germany to Australia mainland and further on to Lord
Howe Island. Be sure you don't miss the pictures in our gallery on:
  We had one sad moment when Felix, DL5XL, had to tell us that he had to
cancel his participation due to his job commitments at that time. With him
we loose an excellent operator buddy!
  More or less by chance we got in contact with Joerg, DF7TH. He has already
been known to Dietmar, DL3DXX, and Gerd, DJ5IW. They shared the operating
seat at XF4DL in 2006. Being a CW enthusiast he has been active from EI,
TK, LX, OD5, EA8 or IS0 in the past. Working as a freelancer in hardware
and software development, he found the time to join our group to follow to
Lord Howe Island. Having now three Joerg in the team, we decided to name
them after their callsign numbers: Joerg-6 (DF6JC), Joerg-7 (DF7TH) and
Joerg-8 (DL8WPX). Sounds like fun when calling for a Joerg. So welcome to
the team, Joerg-7!
  Feel free to visit the DXpedition website on <http://www.lordhowe2014.org>
and subscribe to our newsletter to stay informed.
