I know this is not exactly soon, but something to look forward to for next year Smiley

"Cordell Expeditions is pleased to announce a DXpedition to Clipperton Island in early 2013. The team of 24 will sail from San Diego on Feb. 19, and will be QRV Clipperton for 10 days starting around March 1. We will be active on all bands and all modes, and we will use DXA, the satellite-linked system that displays near-real-time log data on any web browser."

Should be fun. All I need there is 10m. Worked the last operation from 12-160 in two days.

I need this one. Should be a cakewalk compared to Yemen or Somalia.

That'll be an all time new one for me.  Shouldn't be too hard.

And speaking about near realtime log display. That would be a new one next to VK0TH.

I hope no other group decides to jump in a boat and get there before the TX5 team.

Or if another group does jump in a boat can we program their GPS to take them to Kingman instead? Grin

Having worked FO0XX in 1985, this wouldn't be a all time new one, but I still wouldn't mind working them on a few more bands than just the one contact on 40.

Only need them on 160M - so I will make sure I have a better 160M TX antenna up! My K9AY loops on 160M are very good for my tiny lot.

Looking forward to working Clipperton.

Yemen is a challenge for us on the west coast, probably one of the hardest areas for us
to contact.  But thanks to Paul, N6PSE in particular, and the other world class operators many of us made a qso with 7O6T.  (me included  :-)      As you say Clipperton should be a cakewalk for us on the west coast.  Somehow I missed working Clipperton before so this will be an all time new one for me  :-)

Its always nice to have something easy every now and then to work. The last team that went to Clipperton were awesome. I worked them all bands - 80 - 10 with ease. Didn't have a 160M antenna - but will this time around.

Wish they were going to Kingman though - yes - I'm a broken record. . . . . hi hi

Rich, 
What, no Kingman Reef cards ?  I have Kingman confirmed on four bands.
With so many Kingman cards I am thinking about using one of them for a coaster
on my radio desk.  :-)    (sorry Rich, couldn't resist) 

Keep the faith, we should be about due for another Kingman DXpedition.  An easy grab
for us left coast DXers.

Bob K6UJ,

That's what I do with my extra Navassa cards! (1958 & 1969)
