Hello 6m DXers! This year's dedicated 6m EME DXpedition will be from V6M in PK90va, August 26-September 3, 2015, in celebration of my 50 years of VHF DXing. I hope to surpass my record from last July's DXpedition to KH8, where I completed with 68 stations on 6m EME. Anyway, you know that you can count on me to be making a dedicated effort to work as many serious 6m operators as possible! I will not have any internet or email communications from V6, but I havepublished a planned operating schedule on myweb page. Full details are here:http://www.bigskyspaces.com/w7gj/Micronesia2015.htm

WAKE ISLAND, KH9

Posted by Admin

Mike, AG6IP, is in the planning stages for a DXpedition to Wake Island (OC-053) in September 2015 for 2 weeks. He states "I plan to be there sometime in early September to commemorate the 70th anniversary of the end of Battle of Wake along with a group of World War II vets. I have reserved a special callsign K6W from September 4-19th, 2015. I am seeking monetary donations and sponsors that would like to help to put Wake Island back on the air in 2015. I will be operating 80-6 meters using Digital(PSK, RTTY and JT65) and SSB. Donations will off set a small portion of my out-of-pocket equipment shipping, transportation, lodging, operating and postage expenses while there. Wake Island is currently #46 on DXCC most wanted in ClubLog and currently restricted to the public. There are no commercial flights in to the island. I have also operated out of ZC4 land UK bases in Cyprus twice in 2007 and 2014 as ZC4MIS
Please share link to other amateur radio operators around the world. Thanks..... Mike." For more details and updates, watch: https://fundrazr.com/campaigns/bvqHd?psid=691bff52b5b94c36b264224fc67df05b
