KH4 - Midway Island

Indlæg af oz7c » fre aug 02, 2019 10:18

Hej

KH4 - Midway Island
KH6VV/KH4 is planned for the second half of next February. Midway
Atoll is now number 14 on the Club Log most wanted listing and has not
been on the air in recent years. Over the years the airplane used for
supplies fly-ins was downsides and visitors were no longer allowed on
the flights. A boat trip of seven days is expected each way on this
expedition. The A/S Machias vessel is planned. You can see it on the
KH6DV QRZ page. KH6DV, Ron, in Kaneohe Bay, Hawaii, is heading this
up. The boat has a pair of 27KW generators, air conditioned sleeping
quarters, radio room and galley.

KH6DV says ops who would like to join should send him an email, as the
planning continues, and if you have FT8 F/H experience, mention that
in your emails. Ron says 11 operators are needed, plus someone with
experience in contacting DX clubs for donations. Donations can go to
the expedition PayPal account, KH6VV@outlook.com. (Note that is a
different callsign, not a typo.) And also note your own callsign with
your donation "so we can add you to the express LoTW list."

Further info: QSL info for KH6VV: via NH6PR with SASE, "no buro."
QSL info for KH6VV/KH4, only OQRS at Club Log.

Hej
Flg. fra QRZ.com
UPDATE II by Ron KH6DV..“We have a list of 10 well experienced expedition operators on the high interest list which is 1-2 fewer then we need. These were received in the first day and a half after the announcement. My hope is that now that we are into the weekend people will have time to consider making the trip. I believe one of the problems is that so many have been there on the last expedition 10 years ago and are looking for new places to go rather then a return to somewhere they have been. We will let this run till about August 15th at which time we need to make the decision to proceed or delay till later in the year”.

UPDATE by Ron KH6DV...”Upon further review by the DXCC desk we will be moving the equipment and operators to land. As I said whatever it takes to count. We wont be going to these efforts to not count. All will be documented”.

Midway Atoll is #14 on the Clublog most wanted list and has not been active for some time. The aircraft used for the logistics flights has been downsized and visitors are no longer allowed to fly to the island. Operators interested in joining the expedition should be prepared to undertake a 6.75 day ocean voyage.

The vessel DXpedition veteran A/S Machias can be seen on my QRZ page KH6DV.

The vessel will provide all power (2 x 27KW generators) and air conditioned sleeping, operating and galley areas.

For operators who would like to join the expedition, please send me an email. Anyone with FT-8 F&H experience from the expedition side please state so.
•What we need:

About 11 operators. Someone with experience in contacting DX clubs to solicit donations. Donations are being accepted at the expedition PayPal account (KH6VV@outlook.com). Make sure you note your callsign so we can add you to the express LoTW list.

Det ser ud til at man har tænkt sig at anvende PWR fra skibet ?
Er der nogen der ved hvad der er indefor DXCC rules, hvorfor ikke kun Ant på land resten i skibet ?

Der er kun ca 90 Km mellem Kure (KH7) Green Isl. og KH4 Sand Island.
KH7 er mere wanted på Most wanted DXCC !

Det var oppe at vende på DX-forum i Visalia i April. Stemningen blandt tilhørerne var, at udstyr skulle stå på land. Om der så kommer en ændring, har jeg ikke set noget om endnu.
Der er kun ca 90 Km mellem Kure (KH7) Green Isl. og KH4 Sand Island.
Og tager man Google Maps så bliver det lidt kortere, ca 60 KM.

Hej ny info:

NEWS UPDATE by Ron KH6DV – We all know that one of the easiest ways to catch a respiratory infection is to travel by airline, visit a hospital or clinic waiting room, or pass through an airport. Expedition operators aren’t going to want to travel while this pandemic is active, then get on a boat with cramped quarters and undertake a 6+ day voyage with others who have also traveled.

I’ve been looking for Coronavirus forecasts, and have finally found what looks like a reliable one. An expert who has accurately predicted other pandemic timelines stated on February 11th that the Coronavirus would burn itself out in 6 months. He didn’t state if that was 6 months from discovery or 6 months from the date of his statement. Using 6 months from the date of his statement, travel should be safe by the end of the first week in August. We are assuming that, because travel for our expedition will be almost two months later, THE EXPEDITION WILL BE UNAFFECTED.

AUGUST 15, 2019 by Ron, KH6DV – For a number of very good reasons the Midway expedition is being postponed. Some of the things we are working on will take a number of months – one will take 4 or 5 by itself. We could postpone for just a couple months but then we would be operating during the summer with its associated terrible conditions.

We have decided to plan for the first two weeks in October 2020. The changes we are working on will make for a much better and more exciting expedition and are well worth waiting for.

Hej
KH4, MIDWAY ISL
Ron, KH6DV announces a trip to Midway in October 2020 for about 2 weeks. Midway Atoll is #14 on the Clublog most wanted list and has not been active for some time. The aircraft used for the logistics flights has been downsized and visitors are no longer allowed to fly to the island. Operators interested in joining the expedition should be prepared to undertake a 6.75 day ocean voyage. The vessel DXpedition veteran A/S Machias can be seen on my QRZ page KH6DV. The vessel will provide all power (2 x 27KW generators and air conditioned sleeping, operating and galley areas.)
More to follow.

Hej

We’ve all seen the latest pandemic news; it’s not progressing in a good direction or anything like the earlier predictions. The U.S. now has 132,000 deaths and the forecast is for 200,000 by November.

We have encountered a strong and understandable push-back related to the original operation date of October 2020. Once the possibility of moving the operation to the second half of February 2021, the conversation turned more positive.

The application for the Special Use Permit for Midway has now been edited and now proposes a period of the second half of February 2021 and will be submitted this week. Two things now need to happen:

1.We need more operator interest.
2.We need more donations to the expedition PayPal page. (KH6VV@outlook.com)
