Hej Boye

Var sidste weekend sammen med Jacky ZL3CW og Mike WA6O.
og i følge dem vil der for de fleste OZ'er ikke være problemer med at komme i loggen.

begge to et par gode stabile operatører, så mon ikke .....


73's og god jagt

Hej Kenneth
Ja jeg tror også der er gode chancer
Sidste expd. var ca. samme datoer og kørt 160m-15m det er kun 12/10m der mangler !
Det bliver måske ikke i denne omgang ?

Hej her some news

VP6D has reached another significant milestone.

After a short delay the VP6D equipment is on its way to Braveheart in New Zealand.

The shipment was consolidated on to 5 pallets, with a total weight of 1,615 kg (3,553 pounds) and released to Cathay Pacific Cargo airlines by our customs broker in Hayward, California.

The shipment was trucked to San Francisco International Airport for delivery to Cathay Pacific’s cargo hub in Hong Kong. From there it goes to Auckland, New Zealand where it will clear Customs and Bio-security, then taken to our customs broker in Tauranga, New Zealand for delivery to Braveheart. We built in plenty of buffer to meet the contracted date to load Braveheart and manage any unexpected delays.

It’s been a busy several weeks to get all the equipment consolidated, integrated, tested and packed for shipment. The short delay allowed us to add a few late arriving items: SPE high power amplifiers, a spare set of band pass filters and a drone, we think you will agree the delay was justified. At Braveheart’s warehouse the pallets will be unwrapped and inventoried. The shipping cases will not be opened unless visibly damaged.

The next major milestone will be in October when team members begin their journey to meet the Braveheart at Mangareva, French Polynesia. It's been a long 16 months of detailed planning and coordination - the target is now in sight.

In case you missed the latest Clublog update, VP6/D is shown as #19 Most Wanted.

With donations at 78% of target we’re looking forward to additional DXers joining the project’s donor list on VP6D.com

Hej
Så er det vist ved at være tid for Braveheart til at sejle fra
New Zealand til Mangareva, French Polynesia der er ca 5000Km

Opsamling af Opp. fra Totegie Airport formentlig den 14-15 Oct.
Landningbanen er kun ca. 1.5KM lang

Derefter ca 1000Km at sejle til Ducie Isl

Det er samme rute som sidste gang !

Landnings banen ses i højre top af billedet

Hej last news

18. 09. 12


The VP6D – Ducie Island 2018 project is on schedule. The equipment is now at Tauranga, New Zealand, stored in the Braveheart’s warehouse.

A real challenge for DX-pedition teams on uninhabited islands is knowing where in the world they’re being heard. The usual pilot reports tell us what happened, not what’s happening, propagation predictions tell us what might happen.

We understand that propagation may produce only short openings from Ducie Island to many locations around the world. For example, it’s not unusual for an EU opening to occur but EU callers are covered up by callers from other geographies. Until propagation changes for the better the EU stations can’t get through.

We have therefore augmented our pilot process to quickly identify these openings and get this information to the VP6D operators so they can exploit them. We’re confident this new capability will result in more timely coverage of difficult paths.

No one likes to be continually asked for donations. Today’s reality is DX-peditions to ecologically sensitive and restricted entities are expensive. Our boat and the freight invoices to New Zealand are now paid, the team is hoping to cover ~50% of the project cost.

Our fund raising target plus projected OQRS income should cover the remaining 50%. These bills must be paid whether or not you make a Q. We have a team of A1 operators who have been working on this project for 17 months, they can use your help.

Look for another announcement in the next press release on or about Sept 21st.

Hej Boye

I toppen af siden er der angivet signalstyrke fareladen
der er også et link til mere info (før man kører en prediction) :
http://voacap.blogspot.com/2015/07/intr ... harts.html

RX og TX grå felter:
graphical presentation of sunrise and sunset times to help predict low-band openings (hover the mouse over the 'TX' and 'RX' labels on the bottom left of the tables to see the exact sunrise and sunset times in UTC)

Hej
Kører ikke selv 6M !

6M EME
18. 09. 20

Hello 6m DXers!

As you have undoubtedly heard, VP6D is planning to be QRV on 6m EME starting next month. EME CNDX look relatively good every day of their trip, and the days after October 30 include the best days of the month (lowest Degradation) for EME.

Seneste nyt: The VP6D – Ducie Island 2018 project is on schedule.

We are excited to announce that we’ll be using DXA during VP6D. Bob Schmieder KK6EK of Cordell Expeditions offered us the use of DXA and we gladly accepted. By pointing your browser to http://www.dxa3.org DXA allows anyone with an ordinary browser to see VP6D activity, in near real time.
