First and foremost, we want this to be fun. Fun for everyone. Work us on as many bands and modes as you like, share your QSO accomplishments and challenges with your friends, invite the Scouts or the fifth grade class to your station, tell others of the unique history of this island, talk to your barber about it, and have a great time with us.
This will be a “propagation-based” DXpedition. We will do all we can to work parts of the world whose openings are “under” stronger signals. Propagation will determine everything from our fuel consumption to how many hours we sleep. We want to be there for you.
Although there may be some fine tuning, we plan for 8 stations, each capable of maximum legal power, with monoband Yagis for the high bands and verticals with good radial systems and directional receive antennas for the low bands. Remember the big 160 meter antenna DX Engineering designed for Bouvet, that never made it ashore? Fear not, it is going to Pitcairn Island. Under the watchful eye of EY8MM and RA6LBS’s equipment, we are expecting a world-class low band operation. We have the support of DX Engineering, ACOM, and Flex Radio for our stations and we have a great team. It doesn’t get any better than that. More details will appear in the coming months.
