    This will be the most costly and difficult Dxpeditions ever planed and executed.
    I wish them well and Hope All remain Safe and WARM.
    This is listed as the MOST Remote Island in the world. This trip has been in the planing stages since 2007.
    I had the privilege of working the 3Y0X to Peter Island as well as meet some of the Team after their return.
    This will be even greater challenge as All equipment and supplies must fly-in via Helicopter.
    Godspeed the team and hope all goes well. I look forward to working them.
    They are trying to secure additional flight time for the Helicopter's.
    This will land equipment and supplies on the Island.
    Donations for fuel/flight time are in the critical stage now.
    All the Best

    I was looking thru their site...Very Nice!...
    They even offer propagation prediction based on your grid square and callsign...if predictions are anywhere close, it gives you the opportunity to see when it may be best to "land" them in the log.
    They are really going all out on 40/80/160m bands...the antennas are outstanding if plans unfold correctly.(y)
    They are now down to just a few weeks before they embark on this incredible $600,000.00+USD DXpedition.:eek:
    Good Luck Team
    All the Best

    Their website is very impressive. Looks like they have their poop in a group for sure.

    Probably all those who are trying to work major Dxpeditions with Buddipoles and 20 meter dipoles at 15ft.:D

    Too bad they're doing this now when we are bottoming out (or at least we hope we finally are) this current solar cycle.

    This will be a prize contact to get in the log.

    Best of luck to all if you are successful!
