Swains Island DX-Pedition 2007
Update 4/2/07, 9:30 AM
First, I want to thank all organizations and amateur radio operators who have donated to the Swains Island DX-pedition - N8S. If you have not donated and want to, please go to our website at: http://www.yt1ad.info/n8s/index.html
All equipment has been loaded on the boat. We are in the process of having operator personal luggaged moved from Hotel to Boat as I write.
We have decided to purchase two additional 5K to 6K generators to ensure we have proper back-up. They'll cost us additional $1k each here on American Samoa.
Our team of international operators have arrived safely and are ready to serve the DX-Community with pride.
We will depart American Samoa at 1:00 PM today, April 2. We expect the boat ride to take approx. 30 hours.
Last evening, our team had a review meeting to discuss any concerns and to obtain any addition items deemed necessary by team members. The main issue was getting additional generators.
We expect to get the first station on the air within 2 hours after arriving on the island, April 3. Our team will work through the night to get all antennas and equipment up and running by the end of April 3, 2007.
If you have any special request, visit our Guest log on the web site to make your comments or sugguestions.
These comments will be reviewed with our pilot stations at 6:00 PM each day local time and also 8:00 AM in the morning when QSO logs will be sent for updating to the web site.
We do have a sat phone and will be checking spots. Please be kind. :) Our goal is to make the DX-community happy and server them well.
We look forward to seeing everyone from the island.
