6m from Kanton Island, Kiribati by T31T Polish DX pedition - Ended

This page will bring You fresh news about 50MHz  activity from T31T,  Kanton, Central Kiribati.

A  Polish DX-Pedition by REBEL DX Goup will run EU's Most Wanted #5 DXCC entity on HF, but special, 
first ever 50MHz activity from Kanton Island will be conducted by well known globetrotter 
 Mek SP7VC

Main operation will start after long trip from Poland to Samoa 5W1, and few days sailing to remote Kanton Island. Estimated time - October 1-2nd. 

Due to transportation costs, ( more than $1k ) and high luggage manipulation fees, attemp to bring EME equipment there and Moonbounce operation on 6m has been cancelled.

Mek will utilise one of Icom's IC-7300 and 4 element Yagi designed by YU7EF for terrestial Es operation, all possible modes. If You feel there's a chance to any opening into particular part of VK/JA/ZL please send DXCLX spot. Although there will be no real time DXcluster usage, we will try to QSP message to Mek.

Below is a Azimuthal map with headings from Kanton Island.
