will begin Saturday afternoon and run until Sunday night or Monday
morning. The crew is going to hike in, setup camp, setup a field
station and then be on the air. Since the island has strict
rules,evyerhing is carried in their backpacks and by hand. This
makes it challenging. There is no commerical power available on the
island once you leave the dock and that immediate area. All camp
areas are rugged. No power, no plumbing, no running water.

Hours of operation: Saturday afternoon through Sunday night or
Frequency: Look for them in the general portion of the 40 and 20
meter band. Evening time they may drop down to 75 meter.
