From the Ohio/Penn DX Bulletin:

ZK3, TOKELAU (Update). Operators Hans/DL6JGN and Guenter/DL2AWG will be
active as ZK3N from Nukunonu Atoll (OC-048) between April 23rd and May
8th. Activity will be on 80-10 meters using CW, SSB and the Digital modes.
They will be using a TS590 with a Tokyo Hy-Power solid state amp; K3 with
a 500 watt solid state amp; AV640 and Tripod Leg for 40-10 and GP for 80m.
QSL via DL2AWG. Subject to a reliable Internet connection, they will upload
their log to ClubLog on a daily basis. Otherwise, the complete log will be
uploaded upon their return. There is a ZK3N Web page available at:
                          http://www.tokelau2013.de

I have it listed at #51 on the Most Wanted List and I need it for a new one.

ZK3N info first displayed on DX World.net on November 25, 2012. How did you not see it then?  Tongue

Got Tokelau on 5 bands, 2 modes. So, dont expect any interference from AF3Y.

I continue to be surprised at some of these entities that you guys dont already have confirmed.
Time really does fly. hi hi
I know Tokelau has been QRV at least a couple or three times since 2008. There was a 2 man expedition I believe, in March of 2010. (N7OU & W7YAQ) Seems like there was another in Oct. of 2010.

GL to all of you who need this one Grin

Gene, I'll bet you a sawbuck you need things I worked a long time ago.  Wink  When I worked H40FN a little over a week ago I wrote I needed 3 countries that were even less needed on The Most Wanted List.  Tokelau was one, Timor Leste another, and the thrid I forget.  Probably due to the fact I have spent more time off the air than on since I was first licensed.

It seems I was not the only ham to have missed the prior bulletins since two hams appreciate the tip. I subscribed to the LoTW reflector during the height of their problems and all it did was clutter my mailbox with a bunch of meaningless messages. I unsubscribed so things are more manageable now.

I am sure you would win that bet Chris. Logged my first DX in 2006. Many, if not MOST, of the toughies have not been QRV since then.

I guess it just seems like I worked some of these in the last year or so, that so many people need.  In reality, its been several years, and that DOES make a difference.

Even for a left coaster like me, I still need a few out in the Pacific like Tokelau for a ATNO. Now if I can just get someone to activate my few pacific holdouts like Kingman, Ducie, Scaffold Reef, and Banaba, then I would be happy Smiley

I need all four and I've been licensed while they were active but off the air while they were QRV.

Gene, there are too many biographies for me to keep track of. You were licensed in 2006 and have not taken anytime off from the hobby?  What is your current DXCC count again?

Retired in 2002, Licensed in 2003, inactive 2004-2005. Worked/logged my first DX in Feb. of 2006 (YV5TX), and never looked back/was hooked. Conditions really sucked when I first started DXing Sad, but with so many entities available to me, as a newbie, it was still fun.

Current DXCC count is 312 worked/confirmed (314, counting deleted entities).

Gene,

You have done remarkably well considering the lousy conditions you had for for about 5 or 6 years and the restrictions on your antennas.

I think you are probably the elder statesman of the DX forum but you must have some valuable advice and wisdom to pass down to us youngsters.  Wink

Thanks, Chris...... I think I worked pretty hard at it, but had a bit of luck as well.

Yep, I am an elder for sure, but positively no statesman. hi hi

Advice & wisdom? Hmmm, same as we all know...... LISTEN more and transmit less.

(Hope you were not expecting any magic DX bullet from me. I never found one, tho I still keep looking. Cool)
