VK0EK – March 6 – April 20, 2016

Oct. 19, 2015. Several members of the VKØEK team are continuing the process of preparing the computers, networks, and radio systems for the VKØEK expedition. Bill Mitchell (above) is one of several team members who combine their devotion to amateur radio with a professional career in science. He is a PhD chemist, with a broad range of interests. His dissertation was focused on high-precision uranium-lead dating. Above, he is at VKØEK HQ inWalnut Creek, CA, working with Jack K6JEB to ensure that the software on all computers is standardized, and that the automatic updating of various applications is disabled in order to prevent unnecessary downloading over the satellite to Heard Island during the expedition.
