Thanks for nothing.  You could at least give us a better hint than the one you stated.

I'll help out with that...
Lockheed made them in the 50's.

Good luck!! Grin

Hmmm, Lockeed made them in the 50's....you mean they're going to operate mobile aerial from a U-2 spy plane while in flight??? Cheesy

They made the Lockheed T33A Shooting Star.

There are a few others that haven't been on for a while but would undoubtedly command a lot of attention. San Felix is at #19, JD/m and JD/o are always a challenge for NA, TI9 hasn't been on for a while (although that's one I don't need anywhere myself), VK9X rsees activity every year but rarely anything beyond a vacation-style operation. It's been a while since 9U and 5U have been on as well.



Only need San Felix and Christmas (which is QRV now), out of that group.  I hope to land VK9X shortly with a little luck this time Roll Eyes. 73, Gene AF3Y

Well, I'm good with Banaba.  I sure need a lot more band fills for T33 than Clipperton, which like most on this list, I have from daylight to dark.  I remember stringing up an end-fed longwire to work Clipperton on 160m years ago, one that turned out to be very difficult to tune.  I spent a day stringing the thing around the yard, up and down the tower and thru trees, wherever I could find a support.  Evening came and I went in the house and worked 'em first call.  After all that work, I thought "That's it ?!?"

Anyway I'm still wondering what a Lockheed Banaba is?

Maybe K7MH was thinking of this: http://www.worth1000.com/entries/258128/flying-banana (maybe a Lockheed Skunk Works project...)

It's been a while since 9U and 5U have been on as well.

I worked 5U in 2008. According to ClubLog it used to be pretty active until then, and then it suddenly went dark. JD/O I actually worked and confirmed this year.

It's a real shame that some entities aren't active. Banaba supposedly has a permanent population and they are not like P5 or 7O or uninhabited like KP1/5.
