VK9MT Mellish Reef DXpedition to Begin Operation March 29

03/28/2014

The VK9MT Mellish Reef DXpedition is preparing to take to the airwaves this weekend. “Team Mellish” has arrived at Mellish Reef “after 3 miserable days of nasty seas,” a report from the group said. Their equipment is going ashore, and VK9MT should be on the air “sometime” on Saturday, March 29, a day later than initially announced.

The operators will not communicate via e-mail during their 10 day stay on Mellish Reef, which is located some 1150 kilometers north-northeast of Brisbane, Australia. The 10 operators will be active on 160 through 10 meters on CW, SSB, and RTTY. A pilot team is in place to manage all communication between the island team and DXers. An online log will be available.

The DXpedition has spelled out its QSL policy on its website. Last activated in 2009, Mellish Reef is number 22 on ClubLog’s most recent mixed-mode DXCC Most Wanted List. Contact the DXpedition via e-mail. The DXpedition also has a Facebook page. -- Thanks to The Daily DX
