VK0EK – March 6 – April 20, 2016

One of the key goals of this Expedition is to invite everyone to participate. We have teachers and students across the globe participating, members from the science community participating (Including NOAA and WHOI mentioned earlier), and of course Worldwide Amateur Radio Operators – both DXers and hams from many other interest groups. Today we have received some great maps that we would like to share.

(please click on each map for an expanded view)

Geert ON4ADN shares this DX Atlas map centered on Heard Island, and we think every DXer should have DX Atlas – it is way more than just another pretty mapping tool.

As we have mentioned in several of the “How to Work Us” articles, the Grey Line is your Best Friend. Especially if you are a “little pistol”. Please see the articles for more detail on that.

WSPR SM0EPX-RX2 17 March 2016

We have our new farthest WSPR spot – by SM0EPX and captured and shared by Jan, ZS6BMN, and the next updated Grid Square Map by Jan as well:

Finally, I had to see how Windyty.com displayed today’s wind and waves to see if their map is true to Bob, Adam and Bills earlier reports about sea condition, and they are right on the money:

The wind is indeed at their back!

And the waves are at their stern.

NOAA and WHOI will shortly have all of the data streaming from the buoys to their maps on their web sights, and I hope to get this information by tomorrow.

We invite all teachers and students to share what they might be doing with this web site, and as I understand it – the team will be calling several schools by Sat phone once on the island.

Watch for our next Press Release on “Heard Live” – we think you will really enjoy it!
