The Braveheart left Mangareva in time. On their way to Ducie Island some operators of the VP6DX team is active as a /MM operation and produce good signals in North America and Europe.
I just (Friday morning in Europe) got the message from Roger (WA6ZVP) that he had a QSO with Milt (N5IA). The Braveheart is about 100 miles away from Ducie Island. The team expects to arrive at the island at daybreak Friday. They are a day ahead of the nominal timeline so we expect them to be operational at Feb 10th.
We would be delighted if DX editors would publish this information as widely as possible and DXers bring it to the attention of their clubs and fellow DXers.
