Tromelin team is flying to destination right now. For me, it is the dxpedition of the year, as it is one of the four DXCC countries I have missed. It is obvious that I am very excited writing down these lines. FT4TA will be active till the 10th of November. So we’ll have plenty of time to play and enjoy the pile-ups. For now, we are just warming up the engines bearing 150 degrees….Good luck old men!

Everybody of us, who had been involved in DXCC award, knows who he is. The ARRL DXCC chief award manager of course! Even though our acquaintance was established through emails, questions and answers about the awards matters our feelings for him are quite strong. He was so friendly, patient and kind with all of us that nobody was heard complaining. And we all suddenly have been struck by the bad news:
“DXCC Manager Bill Moore, NC1L, was seriously injured in an automobile accident about two weeks ago. His neck was broken, leaving him paralyzed from his upper body down, with limited movement of his arms. Recovery will be difficult and slow, and is not expected to be total. Bill would like to hear from his friends. He is currently in the Mount Sinai Rehab Hospital in Hartford, but cards and well wishes should be sent to
92 Reservoir Rd, Newington, CT 06111″.
If wishes could do any help we have a pile up of them to send you. We need you back on duty soon dear Bill, healthy and smiling as ever.

What a day! Today I was a very lucky old man working Hawaii on 6m. Fred (KH7Y) was coming LP with a signal of 57 with a lot of flutter in a half an hour opening. It was a really thrilling experience.
Here they are some post-party comments on ON4KST chat.
Cheers…to you all.

Last night was a very interesting one of 6m. It was a kind of celebration of spring equinox. It was a party actually. F2 propagation offered the drinks and south America countries among other were invited. It started about 21:00z and lasted more than two hours (I do not know exactly when ended because I got to bed early). South Europe enjoyed it the most.
UPTATE: VP8NO came late to the party! Worked today afternoon. Long live magic band.

FT5ZM is QRT now. They stopped transmissions a bit earlier because a severe storm is approaching the island. It seams that they will have a rough crossing back. They kept us busy for two weeks and as was it predicted they proved once more time they are a very capable and efficient crew. We all wish them a safe journey back.

FT5ZM on route to Amsterdam island. I worked them this morning in 28021 CW as VK6FZM/MM. They delivered a very decent signal, promising easy QSOs from the island as well.
Have a nice trip to your destination old boys.Our thoughts with you.
Update: Track their position on line here!
