TX5S Update 14th January

We had a late start from San Diego due to weather. After the first day of rough seas the ocean is now relatively calm and the team is in the ship’s routine.

Currently, we’re about 3.5 days from Clipperton. We estimate 2 days to move the equipment to the island and setup the campsites.

The Elecraft K4 / KPA-500 is being used on CW, SSB and FT8, last count just over 1000 QSOs in the log.
While underway we’re using N6WM/MM.
The /MM QSL card will include a Date / Time – Grid Square lookup table.

The Early Donor Program has been extended until the first QSO from the island is logged.  Cheers,  GS K5GS
