There is a planned dxpedition to Ducie Island which is located in the Indian Ocean. The island is uninhabited so the only time you will ever get to work this callsign is when lots of money is raised to allow these guys to go there and activate it.

They will be there between 20th of October and 3 November 2018, so quite a long time to wait. No excuses not to have all your antennas up and working properly.

More information can be found at their website vp6d.com/

    $65,000? This must rank as the most ridiculous use of money I've ever seen. The whole ham world, at least as viewed by western eyes, has lost all sense of perspective. Where is the effort to raise that kind of money to promote the hobby amongst youngsters? Where is the effort to fund an all-out war on RFI? Nice trips, if you can get someone else to fund them.
