I didn't know what you are referring to until I saw it on the cluster.  I worked him on RTTY on a clear frequency above all the callers Cheesy  I'm not an IOTA chaser but the island name and 'atoll' sounds very rare for an IOTA Cheesy

There may be a mistake somewhere. We have our choice of Pukapuka, in the Cook Islands, or Puka-Puka, in French Polynesia. The QRZ entry for FO/KH0PR says "Pukapuka Island/French Polynesia."  Huh

Since E51 is the prefix for the Cook Islands it has to be Puka-Puka since FO prefix is for French Polyneisa.

Pukapuka Atoll IOTA OC-062 is a very rare island therefore this operation is a real treat for us, the IOTA chasers. You should become one Jonathan, you are missing alot.

That's the noise my old Epson printer made when it was cleaning its print head.
