    All packed and ready to go. The team will be meeting in Brisbane on Saturday morning and will fly together to Vanuatu arriving later in the afternoon. We have been advised that the resort we are staying at has recently been hit by lightning and it has taken out the Internet connection! They hope to have it repaired and available by early next week so at the moment it looks like no connectivity until then. We will try other options to do our daily log uploads etc. if it continues to be unavailable. Stay tuned.

    VK/ZL operators please note that we will be allocating some time on ANZAC day to AM operation in memory of the occasion – please listen and give us a call if possible.

    Operators: Chris VK3QB, Allan VK2CA, Lee VK3GK, Michael VK3GHM, Brenton VK3CBV and Luke VK3HJ are all set to start operations by mid morning (UTC) on 21 April from Nirvana Resort, near Port Vila.

    QRV on 160-10m, CW, SSB, Digital.

    For those chasing the ARRL Diamond DXCC Challenge, YJ0VK will count for two country credits – British New Hebrides and French New Hebrides.
