I am extremely excited about both announced and the parade of yet to be announced DXpeditions in the pipeline. I feel that very exciting times are ahead!
The early 2018 “mega Dxpedition” to Bouvet Island, led by the “best of the best” will surely be exciting! Their world-class team will certainly do a great job despite the many obstacles and challenges that they will encounter along the way. Their planning and preparations are extremely impressive and this group will certainly do the best job possible. Wishing them all success!
The KH1-Baker Island Team has just launched their website. They have also assembled a world class crew capable of a great performance. I hope that propagation and weather allows them to meet their DXpeditions goals.
They plan to be active for ten days in late June/early July 2018. That’s not exactly a prime propagation window as say compared to March/April or September/October would be. Low bands will certainly be affected by these dates. Let’s hope that their Sponsors are excited enough by their plans to help them move forward.
Weather may also be a factor for the KH1-Baker team as the Central Pacific hurricane season is from June 1 to November 3rd (according to accuweather.com)
Let’s hope the bad weather and poor propagation that has plagued other recent South Pacific DXpeditions does not adversely affect the KH1-Baker Team. You can see their new website here: http://baker2018.net
And let’s not forget the previously announced DXpeditions to VK9-Christmas Island, VK9-Cocos Keeling and the November Dxpedition to Mellish Reef by the VK9MA team. I’m also looking forward to working many of my 3D2R/3D2C team mates as they activate Spratly in March 2018 as 9M0W.
Definitely exciting times ahead!
