VK0EK – March 6 – April 20, 2016


Expedition Leader Bob, KK6EK – (with friends) . . .

Today was a good day for radio operations. Outside it was very gusty, the high winds pick up dust and dirt as it moves over the volcanic sand near camp. Walking is difficult, and volcanic grit and sand get everywhere. However, inside the tents it’s much nicer (with warm clothing). A heater provides comfort in the operating tent, and the adjoining sleeping tent is warmer than the outside air. Additional heat comes from the radios and computers of five stations, most of which are in use around the clock.

    The success of the VK0EK DXpedition is reflected in Bob’s happy smile! Even the penguins in the background are giving the Team a well-deserved round of applause!

    The statistics are impressive and I have witnessed them climbing througout the day! Interesting to note that CW contacts make up around 80% of the total. Fantastic!

    I just cannot help being continuously impressed by the smooth, efficient and polite operating that I have heard by all of the Team members, be it on CW or SSB!

    Well done, well done!!!
