Information from Phil:


I will be on Wake Island (Atoll) for a rotation of 3 months on and 1 month off starting in April 2018. As of now I have not establsiehd what day or time I will be on the air (we are +12 UTC), Once I determine my availability, I will post it here and notify ARRL to be posted in the DX bulletin. I will be using an Elecraft KX3 into either a G5RV or a Buddipole, power output will be QRP for now. I will be working split and please have patience with me as I have not been on the receiving side of a pile-up. I do use LoTW but can only upload when internet is available.....which is limited.

As of now I do not have QSL cards but I hope to have some on my next rotation. We do have a US Post Office on the island but mail is only delivered every two weeks during resupply. I hope to work out the logistics and cost for the QSL cards for those that want them.
