TX5K - Clipperton - 28.01.13 (Update)

Just another update on how things are going ;-) All 5 boxes with my 6m station and sleeping tent have been received in California for transfer to the Shogun.
Additionally, the crate with my generator and the two boxes for the Alpha 8406 amplifier have also been received.   So we are on schedule to have everything
transferred by truck to San Diego and loaded on the Shogun for our 6 day voyage to Clipperton, which begins on February 18.  I will be leaving Montana by plane early in the morning on February 18, so do not expect to have email after February 17.
I am just now recovering from 10 days of "breakthrough flu", so I should be in good health for the upcoming Clipperton trip and operation.   We had obtained flu shots last year before our departure for Niue, so this recent sickness was not nearly as bad as it could have been.
PY2YP has prepared an hourly VOCAP PowerPoint projecting MUF in various directions from Clipperton Island.   If interested, you can find a link to it on my 6m Clipperton web page:
Another recent development you will see described on that page is that I have installed the KST2ME TELNET client on my laptop to use in accessing the ON4KST REGION
2 and ON4KST EME chat pages.  There is a chance that I MAY be able to access info these through the main TX5K WiFi network.  Regardless, I hope to be on the air before the network is operational, so please watch for me on 6m!
GL and VY 73, Lance"
