K9W Wake Atoll: Press Release #4

We receive and publish updates on the DXpedition K9W. We remember that theMediterraneo DX Club is a sponsor ofK9W. Free internal QSL service available for all MDXC Members.

 

The Wake Atoll Commemorative team’s operation is progressing nicely.

Most of the equipment needed for this operation has been received and is being pre-tested prior to shipment to the staging areas. As mentioned in the previous release, the equipment will be pre-staged in California and Hawaii prior to transport to Wake. Staging, pre-testing, packing are essential to assure equipment arriving on-time and safely on Wake.

The two week “on air” dates are anticipated to start the last week of September or first week of October. This is entirely dependent on the military flight schedule into and out of Wake Atoll and this has yet to be determined. As soon as this is established, we will issue another press release and post it on our website.

Several good options are being considered for our two operating sites which will be announced soon.

Please note! There are a few other DXpeditions which will be on air during the Wake Operation. Our band plan, established in early March and documented on our website, will be used during the operation. To avoid the dreaded “Not in the Log”, please be sure which DXpedition you are working! Our operators will announce K9W often to help identify your contact.

The Team wants to thank the DX Community, including generous worldwide Foundations and Clubs, equipment manufacturers and outlets for their outstanding support of the Wake Commemorative efforts. These DXpeditions are extremely expensive and could not be accomplished without the support of the entire DX Community.
