A team comprising Chris VK3QB, Allan VK2CA, Brenton VK3CBV and Luke VK3HJ are fully prepared and departing the eastern seaboard of Australia on Thursday 26 August, bound for Vanuatu. They plan to be operational on 20 mtrs by 00.00UTC on Friday 27th. Other bands will come on line during the day. The vertical antennas have been constructed, tested and are seemingly working very well.

A special emphasis will be placed on the WARC bands, so look out for YJ0VK on 10, 18 & 24 Mhz. 160 mtrs will be operational each day at Vanuatu sunrise and sunset. The team is hoping for DXCC during the six days of operation. More information on the DX pedition and QSL’ing can be found at The team goal is to work as many stations as possible, have some fun and enjoy a break on a beautiful Pacific Island.
