Sep. 16, 2015. We are pround to present our East Coast Support Team, centered in Fluvanna County, Virginia.

Manny K4MSR is our ARES EC for the county. There are about 20 in the local ARES group, but the ones pictured above are ardent DXers and those assisting us directly with the VKØEK DXpedition. The group meets on the ARES Net every Monday evening at 8 pm (local), and for breakfast every Wednesday morning at 7:30 AM. They also participate as a team in an annual field day.

These gentlemen have become a very important part of our Heard Island Team. Glenn W4XR has volunteered his truck and trailer for transporting the tents and associated equipment from HDT Global in Buena Vista, VA, to the accumulation point at the home of team member Ken Karr NG2H. Several others will also drive down with Glenn and all are assisting to haul and organize the equipment that will go into the shipping contain that will arrive late December. While their preparatory work will be complete when the container is shipped from Norfolk, VA to Cape Town, South Africa, currently scheduled for late December.
