I received a satellite call from Bob, KK6EK announcing that they had just arrived at Clipperton:
The TX5K Team arrived at Clipperton at 8:30 PM PST – or 0430 UTC. It is dark there now (and even with a full moon they can only just make out the island), so offloading onto the island won’t start until day break.
No one got sick on the way down – all are doing well and have enjoyed the wonderful food and hospitality of the Shogun Crew.
They will take about 2 hours to search for just the right landing spot tomorrow, and if the surf cooperates, they will need all day tomorrow and a good part of the next day to offload and set up. This means the expected start of the DX-pedition going QRV is late in the day (Pacific Time) on February 28th (it will most likely be March 1st in some time zones) – which is as planned.
The team sends their thanks to everyone for your support of this DX-pedition and send their love to their families.
