Expedition was quite successful.  5301 QSOs have been uploaded to ClubLog, 5126 net QSOs (less dupes), 3696 different call signs. OQRS available.

Some inaccuracy can be found in Band/Continent table, but the picture as a whole is still OK.

We got back to  Vancouver, BC on September 5. It will take a while to update the web-site, SPONSORS page will be done first.

Log  is already uploaded to LoTW. 

Printed QSLs are expected by mid-October, so all sponsors will be Number One priority for direct mail without additional QSL request.

Kayak Island  IOTA NA-157

GRID  BO79qt

Be aware of pirates NL6/AA7CH!  I've got a number of e-mails with the QSO data to confirm for the times I was off. Propagation is bad, especially to Europe where topography plays against us.  I upload QSOs  to ClubLog daily, please check it!

 A lot of efforts made to reach EU - please click at the picture of off-shore antenna below. You can also e-mail me. I am here, on Kayak Island, in the middle of nowhere, to have as many stations in MY log as possible.

In spite of poor propagation, heavy rains,  storm winds blowing almost every day, so Spiderbeam antenna remained unpacked, topography playing against any direction but Asia  and numerous evidences of Grizzly Bears around,   4296 QSOs have been uploaded to ClubLog, 4068 net QSOs (less dupes), 3059 different call signs. OQRS available. Mlt - the number of countries worked.

Due to bad weather we arrived to Kayak Island one day later and had to depart one day earlier.

Some inaccuracy can be found in Band/Continent table, but the picture as a whole is still OK.

Log should be uploaded to LoTW by mid-September or earlier. 

Printed QSLs are expected by mid-October, so all sponsors will be Number One priority for direct mail without additional QSL request.
