An international team of amateur radio operators will activate DXpedition station VK9WA from the Willis Islands between November 14-23, 2015. Willis is currently #34 on the Club Log most wanted list and has not been activated since 2008.

The team will depart Cairns, Australia on the MV Phoenix vessel for the 30 hour trip to Middle Island in the Willis Islets. The island is only 4 acres in size and uninhabited. They will operate high power CW, SSB, and RTTY on 10 through 80 meters (possibly 160 meters) for 10 days (subject to weather, etc.). The primary focus will be providing all time new contacts with this highly demanded, rarely activated DXCC entity.

Additional details are available here

Initial team members include Rob (N7QT), Jared (N7SMI), Sandro (VE7NY), and Adam (K7EDX). Additional team members (up to 8 total) are being considered.

While this is a small, budget-conscious DXpedition, activating Willis requires significant expense for a charter boat and equipment. We kindly invite you to donate to the cause and support us.
