Palmyra Island 2016

Palmyra Atoll is a national wildlife refuge and is located about 1000 miles south of Hawaii. It was discovered by chance in 1789 and in 1802, the USS Palmyra shipwrecked there giving it its name.

South Sandwich and South Georgia Islands 2016

This represents one of the most complex DXpeditions in history in activating both the #3 most wanted and #8 most wanted DXCC entities, both located at or below the Antarctic Circle. This was in January-February 2016. The team faced ferocious winds and storms and threatening ice flows. The South Georgia Island team tallied nearly 84,000 QSO's and the South Sandwich Island operation tallied over 54,000 QSO's in very difficult conditions.
