UPDATE: Oct 16 2018 : Follow the "Braveheart" to Ducie! The Garmin sponsored "follow the ship" link has been turned on - here's the link: https://share.garmin.com/vp6d
Ducie Island (OC-182 and twenty one on Clublog's "most wanted" list) will be active soon! This will be an ATNO for many of us and the only chance at Ducie for some time to come.
This DXpedition has contracted the Braveheart, a veteran of several previous DXpeditions, to get them safely to and from the island. They will also be operating a maritime mobile station while under way.
A few things to remember:
1) They will NOT be using Clublog but they WILL have an online log that they plan on uploading to daily.
2) Early donors to the VP6D DXpedition will get their QSL via LOTW while the team is still on the island! The rest of the log will be uploaded to LOTW six months after the expedition is over.
3) They will have an OQRS on their website but not on Clublog.
They will also be QSL'ing direct and via the bureau. For complete info visit their detailed QSL policy page here...
The Braveheart will be the VP6D DXpedition Ship
