KH9/WA2YUN off the air until mid May

KH9/WA2YUN off the air until mid May

I just heard from Colin that he had to send his radio in for repair. He hopes to
have it back in time for the optimum 6m EME conditions in May. GL and VY 73, Lance

Bugger the EME and JT65, how about the very real likelihood of a real contact via TEP and phone/CW? !!! :wink:

Hello!

A number of people have been inquiring regarding the status of KH9, so I wanted to
pass along this update.

I just heard from WA2YUN that he expects to receive his repaired K3 the next mail
flight to Wake Island, which is May 21. The good news is that the radio is now
functioning 100% again and is extremely sensitive. The bad news is that Colin will
be leaving the island on that same plane, and will not return for a month.

However, he promises to do everything possible to become active on 6m EME and Es
after he returns to Wake Island on June 18. GL and VY 73, Lance
