23cm EME Expedition to KH6

Flights and rental are booked!
I will be operating 1296 EME from Hawaii from October 1st – October 5th 2021 from the island of O’ahu. This will be the first time Hawaii has been activated on 1296 EME since Bruce Clark, K0YW, operating KH7X at KH6YY in 2007.

I will be working holiday / sked style on October 4th and 5th.
