That is great news!

The team is scheduled to be on air from around UTC 0001/28th June, which is next Thursday my time.

My new antenna is scheduled to arrive right around the same time. I'm still undecided what will be more fun, sitting at the radio chasing KH1, or assembling my new antenna.  Grin

New antenna? I hope it's not another 20 m only antenna!

Marvin, you should work them on 20 m immediately they are on air, then you'll have plenty of time to assemble and install the new antenna.

It's a lovely sunny day here. Temperature has reached double digits (C)!

 Grin Grin Grin

I'm getting 20M6 by M2, which is yet another 20 m monobander, but it has a much longer boom than my current LJ-205CA by Hy-Gain. Currently I have 5 elements on a 34 foot (10.4 meters) long boom. The new one will have 6 elements on a 59 foot (18 meters) long boom.

It may end up being a disappointment if the improvement is insignificant, but I've been dreaming about a longer boom for the past couple of years and I just have to give it a try.  Grin

Sure would be interested in the Long John if you sell it.

Jim,

Yes, I will have no need for it (unless I will be unable to install the new monster antenna for some reason).

The Long John is an excellent antenna (it actually won 20m DX Marathon 3 years in a row  Grin ), I'm just not sure how to package it to ship it to you. I'll see if the new antenna comes in some useful re-usable packaging.

Wow!  With a 59 foot boom 20 meter monoband I might never leave 20 meters, except to go to 6 meters when it is open!  I don't think my yard is 59 feet wide.

Will we get another video of the monster being hauled aloft?

If I don't run into problems installing the monster, then yes, photos and/or a video will follow. The UPS Freight shipment successfully crossed the USA / Canada border on Friday. It will likely arrive to my remote QTH on Monday. I plan to go there (a 6 hour round trip from my home) a week from now. If all goes well, I'll be installing the new antenna in the middle of the KH1 expedition.

Great, really keen to see this monster, compared to measly 4 ele.

Good luck and be careful.

I just worked the team heading to Baker Island, KH7Z/MM on 14.090 MHz in the DXpedition FT8 mode. Their signal is fantastic, between +7 and +13 dB in the past 10 minutes. It's 3 am here, or 0700 UTC.
