"6m from TX5K in March ;-)
Well, the contributions from serious 6m DXers rolled in - MNI MNI TNX!  As a result of your support, the travel costs are already paid, and I am planning on going to Clipperton with my proven portable 6m station:
At this point, I am spending money as if I had it, shipping equipment down to California, and buying things like a $1400 generator to take on the trip. The good news is that I tested out the portable 6m station with the new 3kw Honda 110 VAC generator (the Honda 2000 would not work with my switching power supply above about 600w output), and I was able to run 1kw output on JT65A mode using my new Meanwell RSP-2000-48 power supply and 6M-1000 amplifier.  For almost 3 dB difference, I was not willing to compromise the success of the mission, so am now busy building a shipping crate for the generator.
So....please spread the word among serious 6m DXers.   I working very hard and spending lots of money to provide a serious 6m activation of Clipperton Island.   If we get any F2, I will hope to work you on that mode.  In case we do not, I am planning to be QRV for my moonrises through the European moonsets and then again for all the NA moonsets down to my moonset.   I am planning to take the two middle days off from EME and just concentrate on ionospheric prop possibilities those days, because they are unfortunately the worst days of the month for 6m EME.  The proposed tentative schedule is on the above web page, and obviously is subject to the uncertainties of weather, unloading, equipment/logistics problems, etc. etc.  However, since the best EME days during the trip are right at the beginning of the operation, I sure am planning to do whatever I can to be QRV as soon as possible after we arrive and make this a successful venture for everyone.
So, if you have been planning on assembling that big 6m yagi that has been taking up space in your garage, or wiring up that new 6m amplifier, or meaning to get that computer interface connected so you can run digital modes, this is your early warning notice   You have 6 weeks to get ready!
I don't expect to have internet capability after February 17, so I will try to post any further information before then on the above web page.  Otherwise, please just watch for me on 6m! GL and I sure hope to be able to hand out a new 6m DXCC to many of you in a couple months!
MNI TNX again for your encouragement and support!  VY 73, Lance"
