VK9PN Lord Howe Island on the air
A mini dxpedition to Lord Howe Island has begun today. This rare entity in the Pacific is being activated by three operators for the duration of one week under the callsign VK9PN. They will operate on CW and SSB on all bands from 160 metres to 10 metres.
The main ops are Patrick VK2PN and Mira OK1NG and they will later be joined by Chris VK3FY for the CQ WPX CW contest.
For more information on this exciting dxpedition, visit their website: http://www.qsl.net/vk2pn/
Thankfully, I already have this rare DXCC in my log, having been just one of two EIs to have worked VK9OL last year.
