Freight logistics on track

Hi everyone

It's only a few weeks to go. There are many logistics involved with this DXpedition as I need to organise not only the radio equipment but also all aspects of life support. Red Island is totally uninhabited and so everything from food, water, medical, generator, fuel, shelter, etc also needs to be arranged.

Much of the equipment has arrived in Bamaga in far north Queensland including the amplifier, amp power supply and generator. There are just a couple more boxes to express freight up there.

I've arranged with the two air lines I'm flying with to take extra baggage, in particular the Spiderbeam poles for the 20m and 15m vertical dipoles.
