Given how great the ops were on VP6D, I am anxiously looking forward to this one.  These guys were good!

Good luck for all who need that rare one. I cleaned 'em out when VP8ORK was there in Feb. 2011. I'll be in the chase for a Marathon point and a lowbands Q but that's it for me.

Great news and I'm thrilled. It's one of 7 that I still need. This will produce a lot of excitement!

Great to hear I might work a new one next year! I hope the bottom of the cycle doesn't foil my chances.

VP8ORK was completely unheard here.

Just when I thought my short list would never get shorter these wonderful guys are about to give us another thrill like they did on VP6D.  Go for it team!

Great operators indeed with good propagation skills, antenna skills and   they worked all areas of the world in a balanced and fair way.  Unlike the recent run of dx'peditions that ignore 3/4's  of the world and who just give the propagation opportunities to a limited number of areas of the world.  Professionals and fair operators. I wish them well.

I worked South Orkney on 2-6-11 on 40CW from NE Illinois.  As I remember contacts were rare west of the Mississippi river.  Hope to work them again.

I worked the 2011 expedition on a few bands.. it would be nice to add a few more. This team did a great job with vp6d, thanks and good luck with this next one.

I missed the 2011 DXpedition and never worked VP8O before, so this is an opportunity for an ATNO #326 for me.

Good luck and safe travels to the team.

Wow, hard to believe it's been 8 years already since VP8ORK.  Undecided

Hope to hear the next one!

It happens to the best of us, occasionally.

I have VP8O worked on 40 SSB (AY1ZA) and 30 CW (VP8ORK) so will be looking for plenty of bandfills and a digital modes QSO.  This is one of those selective entities that I haven't worked on 20 meters, but have worked on other bands, along with VK9C, VK9X, VK0H, A7, YI, A9, 8Q, JX, HV, Spratley, 9M2, 9V, XW, EP, AP,  and probably a couple more that escape my 52 year old memory right now.
