Vanuatu Dxpedition 2010

DXpedition to Vanuatu 2010

A team of 4 Australian amateur radio operators will be activating YJ0VK from near Port Vila on Efate Island, Vanuatu, from the 27th of August to the 2nd of September 2010.


To work as many stations as possible, have some fun and enjoy a bit of a break on a beautiful Pacific Island

We plan to operate two stations as often as possible - remembering that there are only 4 operators available.  We will be making a special effort to focus on the WARC Bands as YJ0 is still well sought after on these bands. 

We gratefully acknowledge our logistical and financial supporters for all their assistance.  If any organisation or individual would like to contribute to help alleviate our freight costs etc please use the link on our Support page.  Any donation will be gratefully accepted.

Our main goal is that you are successful in making a contact with us while we are there. 

73 and see you on air!

The YJ0VK Team





Vanuatu is an archipelago of 83 islands.  The islands gained independence from the Anglo-French condominium in 1980, when the new name of Vanuatu was adopted. YJ0VK will be operating from Efate Island.
