Palmyra DXpedition to Sign On as K5P
Palmyra DXpedition is shaping up well.
When the Palmyra DXpedition gets under way in January 2016, operators will be using the call sign K5P. The Pacific Islands DXpedition Group has been granted permission to activate Cooper Island in the Palmyra Atoll.
Palmyra and Jarvis Islands (KH5) ranks number 9 on ClubLog’s DXCC Most Wanted List. “After many months of planning, securing permits, and negotiating contracts with US Fish and Wildlife and the Nature Conservancy, we are quickly approaching the much anticipated DXpedition to Palmyra,” said co-leaders Craig Thompson, K9CT, and Lou Dietrich, N2TU, in a recent news release.
A team of 12 operators will operate five stations over a 14 day period, from January 11 through January 26. Visit the Palmyra 2016 website to learn more.
