Permission granted for K9W Wake Atoll DXpedition

| November 1, 2013

The K9W Wake Atoll DXpedition, which was put on ice as a result of the partial US government shutdown, now has US Air Force permission to visit Wake. Their equipment is already on Wake and in safe storage awaiting their arrival. The 12 operators plan to arrive on 2 November and immediately erect antennas and set up the stations. The team expects to have two CW and two SSB stations on the air, and current plans call for K9W to be active from 3 to 15 November. The team has posted its operating plan on its website.
