The Braveheart called on Pitcairn on schedule on Sept. 6. All our DXpedition gear was unloaded and taken ashore by the Pitcairn Island longboats. Generators, fuel, antennas and masts, Flex radios, ACOM amps, the DX Engineering 160 vertical, Yagis — everything. It’s all there, stored safe and dry in the engineering building. When the roads dry out, all our gear will be moved to our operating sites and be ready for us when we arrive in October. This process will save us 150 to 200 man hours of installation time and get us on the air much faster.
