When QRV?

UPDATE from team member, Jerry WB9Z @ 16:25z or 21:25 pm FT5ZM local time.

Still a long way from getting on air. The terrain is very rough for walking and putting up antennas. We’re talking up to 2 feet of dead grass on top of lava rock. This is one of the (if not the) roughest Dxpeditions ever been on. The entire team is exhausted after a very long day. All generators are in place, but there is still so much to be done

They anticipate not being on the air until at least 0700z tomorrow January 26th.

  1. Congratulations on progress so far and rest easy, as the next few days will be very busy, but hopefully a lot of fun for the team as well as those like me who will be after as many bands and modes as possible. I worked Amsterday twice before but never got a confirmation as I didn’t pursue it at the time and now it’s too late. I worked FB8ZF from Guam in 1975 as KG6JED, and FB8ZQ in 1983 but by the time I got around to getting a confirmation F3CW’s house flooded and the logs were lost. I won’t let this one slip through my fingers. Thanks so much for what you are doing. This means a great deal to me. 73

  2. Congratulations on getting there.
    Hope to hear you guys tomorrow and work you next week (after the big guns hi).
    Will be one of the few chances to work this entity.
    Never worked this entity so any band/mode will do.
    Looking at the most wanted list I am not the only one!
    Thanks for this activition and all the best.

  3. Congrats on safe arrival. Worked the MM station on the Braveheart last weekend. You guys may need to rest up a day (or two) after that voyage … get some sleep!

  4. Congratulations to the team on a safe arrival and for putting Amsterdam on the air. Thanks for the Braveheart contacts – if these are any indication, propagation should be favorable. My best wishes for a fantastic DXpedition experience and a very safe and smooth voyage back to Fremantle.

  5. It will be great to work the Island again. I also worked them as FT5ZJ on 10m back in August 1999 but never received a qsl card from Michael’s manager at the time and never pursued him.
    Good luck with this far more professional dxpedition.

  6. I wonder how many will not even get an all time new one because so many others will be obsessed with working FT5ZM on every band and mode?? Too bad it’s like that.
