It’s now been over a month since the VK0EK team returned from Heard Island. Some of us have gone back to our day jobs, others have moved on to other adventures. We are all discovering that there is Life After Heard Island. If you made contact with us via amateur radio, confirmations for all QSOs have been uploaded to Logbook of the World and paper QSL cards are being distributed by postal mail and via the bureau (if you have any questions about QSLs, please contact our QSL manager, Tim M0URX).
None of us will forget the VK0EK experience. It took years of organization and months away from family and friends. The expedition was an intense experience where old friendships were strengthened and new ones were forged.
Right now, I am looking forward to having a little more time to make posts here!
73, Dave, K3EL, Radio Team Leader, VK0EK
