TX0A TX0M Maria Est Atoll Morane Atoll French Polynesia

Time flew very fast, and we have less than a week before boarding our flight to Tahiti. Our skipper has already arrived in Rikitea, and is waiting for us to get there soon.

All the radio equipment components have been inspected, tested, and carefully packed. Additionally, everything else we are taking with us was cross-checked and packed too. Since our luggage allowance on the Air Tahiti flight from Papeete to Rikitea is limited, we eliminated everything redundant, but kept all the components indicated on the equipment section of this website, including the spares. Overall luggage weight remains well above our allowance, so we'll have to do our best to ensure that everything will accompany us to Rikitea! No pressure, of course, hi.

We invite all IOTA chasers to check the expedition website periodically for possible updates. Please note that any posts between Dec 4 and 18 will be made through Johan's (PA3EXX) assistance, our pilot station. If you have any message for us, please forward it to Johan, and he will ensure that is delivered.

We wish to use this opportunity to express once again our deepest gratitude to all the group and individual sponsors of this ambitious project!

Thank you and kind regards,
Cezar, VE3LYC

Do not work EU for awhile. Our band behaviour today does not deserve any QSOs with you. Do focus on US and Asia! Ashmed me.

There are still descent operators in EU Jouko. Don't judge all EU operators that way please. Cezar and Adrian are doing a fantastic job! Very good signals on 30m earlier this afternoon!!
