An ODXG team of 6 amateur radio operators from Australia will once again be activating YJ0VK from Port Vila on Efate Island, Vanuatu from the 21st of April till the 5th of May.


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 three stations as often as possible.
