VK0EK – March 6 – April 20, 2016


It looks like they might be 1/4 of the way home. They were spotted on WSPR in ND19 at 0800z April 13, but there have been no ZL/ZS9HI/MM spots on the cluster.

I have no direct communication with them – but as I said in the last post – WSPR kept us all from worrying. And Windyty.com did give a hint of their situation – I am sure they have been hunkered down with rough seas.

You can see that they are about at the same latitude as Kerguelin, and this means they are probably just getting out of the roughest seas – hard to tell, but Windtyty.com gives the best clue:


Jan, ZS6BMN sent another very nice WSPR report (thanks Jan!):

  1. We should give a huge round of applause to Rich Holich, KY6R. Rich did a tremendous job of helping everyone to get into the log by his graphs and charts both before the DXpedition and while the DXpedition was on-going. Conditions were rough at times but all those clues and hints about how antennas and propagation worked were instrumental in helping amateurs around the world to work VK0EK. If nothing else, most of us learned more than we ever had about how to work a DX station. Thanks again Rich for an outstanding job well done. I’ve never seen so much information put forth in my 63 years of Amateur Radio operation. 🙂
