N7CQQ News Release
Well gang, we have thrown in the towel on getting to Tokelau, ZK3 this time around. The boat is normally scheduled for a two week turn around with about two days to get to and two days to return from Tokelau. This month the boat scheduled to go to Tokelau was tasked to do another cruse and another boat was substituted from New Zealand. The weather has delayed the arrival of the substituted boat from New Zealand so we still don’t know when the boat to Tokelau will depart Apia, Western Samoa.
But wait the story gets better!
The return boat trip is “Scheduled” for departure from Apia, WS on September 18th, The return date to Apia, WS after picking us up at Tokelau is September 29th give or take weather and the changing schedule. The scheduled flight returning Ron N6XT and John N7CQQ back home is scheduled out of American Samoa on October 1. So we have given up our attempt to visit Tokelau this trip. We will continue to operate 5W and KH8 when we return to AS about the 19th or 20th of September to see the Swains guys return. We have lots of information to share about visiting Samoa and Tokelau.
73, de John 5W0QQ Ron 5W0XT see you in the pile up and still having fun in the Pacific.
