ZL9HR – Campbell Island


In November 2012 I was one of ten operators who activated ZL9HR from Campbell Island, a sub-antarctic island located 52°32′S 169°8′E. The dxpedition comprised a multinational on-island team as well as a supporting crew in Australia and around the world.

At the time of the expedition, ZL9 Auckland/Campbell Islands was number 15 on the current DXCC most wanted list, and number 11 on the ClubLog list. The ZL9HR operation made over 49,000 QSOs despite being curtailed by severe weather, and pushed ZL9 a long way down the most-wanted lists.

More info available at the links on this site, and from various other team members including excellent articles by Glenn, KE4KY and Gene, K5GS.
