Mellish Reef is located in the Coral Sea, approximately 1100 km north-east of Brisbane, Australia. Currently number 24 on ClubLog’s Most Wanted List, Mellish Reef was last activated in 2009. An international team will operate for 12 days, using 6 stations with linear amplifiers and vertical antennas.

Discussions are underway with the appropriate authorities and potential transport suppliers. Additional information will be available on the team’s soon to be activated web site after the documentation is finalized.

Currently signed up for the project are: Pista HA5AO, Dave K3EL, Glenn KE4KY, Jacky ZL3CW, George HA5UK, Gene K5GS and Les W2LK. As the project progresses we will announce additional operators and details.
