Thanks for the info Col.  Great team assembled and I've had the pleasure to work a couple of them before.

Looks like a great team! I look forward to chasing bandfills when they are QRV,

Needing 10, 12, 30 and 80 meter contacts which I missed when the VK9NI group was there in 2009.

Positively like the "Member Agreement" for all to see.

GL to the team, and all who might need this one.

No 160M - major bummer. I have Norfolk on 80 - 10M, but would love 160M . . .

The agreement and openness on their web site is excellent.

GL to all who need them.

Dont discount 160m as we will have antennas available and may be QRV on 160m.
We will be listening and lets just see what unfolds with propagation while we are there.
Previously on YJ0 conditions have been poor for 160m around May with very few contacts (if any) in the log.
Cheers Lee

Maybe something good will come from the ZL9HR fiasco after all.

That is a very simply worded agreement which was made public, but, in my view, very important. It will be awfully hard for somebody to make a claim that the rules weren't followed after one agrees to that agreement since it is written in everyday English.

I think the agreement is a big step forward and the authors should be applauded, both for creating it and making it public.  I particularly like the fact it is written in layman's terms without resorting to a bunch of legalize. One does not need to be a lawyer to understand what was written and agreed to. 

I hope the expedition to Norfolk Island goes well.

Hello Lee-VK3GK, good luck with your DXpedition.  I am very glad to see the remaining DX0DX items get some use and benefit the DX community. I wish you and your team much fun and great success.

I'll certainly be listening.
This would be an ATNO here.

This "simple agreement" is one we have been using for the last couple of years with ODXG.
The reason it works is that ther is NO hidden agenda, we all know where we stand and as far as i am concerned Reputation and Ethics are much more important than "short term gains."

Also there is a less funding involved which probably makes it a bit easier, HOWEVER we all agree how funds will be split up at the end, and stick to our word.

With some other recent DX-expeditions, "Just because it is apparently 'legal' or 'contractual', doesn't make it right" Smiley

The only omission from the agreement is that everyone contributes an equal share to any costs incurred (that where not covered by donations).
 
So with this agreement $200 per person "lifetime membership" goes towards helping out ODXG that has nothing to do with the DXpedition.

Well for ZL9HR in which team members did not have to pay the full
input costs for the event plus we did not hit them up for lifetime membership to HARAOA.
That would have been $1,600.

Maybe something good will come from the ZL9HR fiasco after all.

That is a very simply worded agreement which was made public, but, in my view, very important. It will be awfully hard for somebody to make a claim that the rules weren't followed after one agrees to that agreement since it is written in everyday English.

Super-duper signal an hour after my sunrise on 30M this AM. VK9N isn't an ATNO for me, but wow, this is looking to be good stuff!

Got 'em on 12 SSB about an hour ago. My 43' vert is a lousy high band antenna. We struggled through the QSB.

The high bands are pretty good to Oceania.  I got VK9NT on 10m and 12m, and A35UD on 10m.

Yep, I just got them on 10m a bit ago. That was on my "Umbrella Stand Moxon ®" that wobbles on on my deck and 100 watts.  Grin

I was on 20 meters with a very good run rate for the NEQP and decided to see if there was any sporadic E on 10 meters. I heard a local station on 28.495 calling over and over so I figured there a DX station.  I worked VK9NT at about 0000 UTC. Not a new one, or new band, since I worked Jim Smith back in 1990 but they may use LoTW and that would be nice.
