Heard Island VK0EK DXpedition Team Has Arrived, Operation Hours Away
#1
The VK0EK DXpedition began operation on 40 meters on March 23 and was expected to soon start on 30 meters.

A VK0EK DXpedition “reconnaissance team” has arrived on Heard Island. Bob Schmieder, KK6EK; Arliss Thompson, W7XU; Bill Mitchell, AE0EE, and Dave Lloyd, K3EL, are on the island with several members of the R/V Braveheart crew to get the lay of the land. The DXpedition team plans to spend about 3 weeks on Heard Island, which is the fifth most-wanted DXCC entity, according to ClubLog’s DXCC Most Wanted List. Co-organizer Rich Holoch, KY6R, spoke with Schmieder via satellite telephone.
