Seems they may be early, according to their latest update:

“Our original timetable was to be QRV by 05:00 UTC 27 June.  We think we will beat that by 24 hours.”

Looking at their GPS map, in my estimation, they could arrive close to the island in about six and a half hours from now, at around 0400 their local time. It will be a perfect timing because their sunrise will be at 0544, so they will have the entire day to get on the island and start building their QTH. The weather forecast is good.

Looking Good!

I was getting anxious about their getting there late, and me missing them.

Now I'm looking forward to my third ATNO this year, after zero last year this is a bonanza!

I have already pointed my beams to 53 degrees in readiness.

This is the first time I will monitor one of these and try to connect.
Where do I learn what frequencies/bands/modes they may use?

Thanks,

Well, my phone app alert are all set for KH1. Shouldn't be long now.

WOW, how things have changed. I get an alert on my phone, go to the shack and work the station then confirm it's in their log on club log. After it's over use OQRS to QSL and in a week or so, sometimes sooner the country is confirmed.

Almost seems like cheating but a heck of a lot better then the good ole days Grin

They have arrived! They will be there ten or eleven days - which means only one weekend - going to be crazy!

I'm pretty much set and ready to go. With all the hype about the FT8 dxpedition mode, I'm really curious to try to get my first QSO with them in that mode just to see how it all works. I picked up and tested/connected a computer control cable to work with the software so it can make the radio do what it needs to do. It will be interesting to see the QSO rates. Of course I'll want them on CW/SSB and other bands if I can get them. Not sure how difficult a path it will be from NJ.

a little dissapointed they have been there 14 + hours i thought they might have 1 station up and running would be the smart thing to do 40m / 20m get the qso's started whittle away the big guns. i suppose its their money i only need 1 slot then the pressure is off we have some nice sporadic e's even 10m mightr have been possible

I woke up at their sunset hoping to catch them when they start, but they didn't. Excellent CONDX on 20m though.

Usually the DXpedition has to be QRV for a minute and a half before the critiques start (wrong band, wrong mode, wrong time, wrong op, wrong audience, wrong *, etc.)

Why speculate?  http://kh7z.net/ and http://baker2018.net/ have all the scoop.
