    In the Spring edition of the Northern California Dx Foundation newsletter, is an 8-page (pdf) story on Malpelo/HK0NA

    Yes I received mine also enjoyed reading it and passed it on to several of my DX friends in my club. This is one club that I'm proud to support individually as well as my regional DXCC/CC Club.

    They had the HK0NA story at the Sunday morning Breakfast at the Visalia DX Convention last weekend. Program was by Bob, K4UEE, the expedition leader. There were 2 stations operational on this rock, one about 1/2 way up the steep mountain, and one at the very top. The lower station was completely blocked to most of the US, which I why I rarely heard them. But the tippy top station had a great sig to the West Coast and that was my only contact. You have to see the program to imagine how HARD it was to get there. A real MOUNTAIN CLIMB, in 100+ degree heat, loads of crabby CRABS nipping at their ankles the whole time and just incredible STRAIN to get it up there!

    I don't know why they didn't use a Helicopter to get the stuff to the top. Next time someone goes there, a Helicopter should be a MUST!

    Supposedly, the whole team will be at Dayton to put on the show again, so this is a MUST SEE for all the DXers to experience what the team had to go through to give them a QSO!

    Don't know WHEN the cards are coming out. I have one contact on 20 SSB with them, which duplicates a contact I had way back when with the last DXpedition there, HK0TU. But it was exciting nevertheless. The cards are going to be beautiful, we saw a preview of those too.

    Any DXpedition led by K4UEE is well planned and executed. No stones are left unturned. We saw a presentation at the Apr 19th SEDXC meeting by another one of our members who was on the HKØNA DXpedition. Using a helicopter was bought up when we were asked if we had any questions. That certainly would have made things easier, but they were told from the beginning that no helicopters were allowed. The Colombian government doesn't want to disturb the boobies (bird types :)) or other wildlife. They were told if a medical emergency occurred a helicopter would be sent, otherwise things had to be done the hard way.

    I received the paper qsl the other day so thought I would check LOTW and sure enough confirmed on 20.17/12/15/10 CW & Phone but not credited for DXCC on any bands. Has this dxpedition not been approved for credit?:confused:

    Even the early operation by them with their own calls was accepted a long time ago, while they were there.

    Not sure what you mean by "not credited" for DXCC on any bands.
    It wouldn't be "credited" (or awarded) to your account until you applied it to your account. It should however show up as "selected" for being applied on LOTW.

    I got the card but don't see it in LOTW as yet.

    Yes, what I was trying to say is that it does not show as "selected" for being applied.

    HK0NA has not uploaded any of their logs yet. They plan to do so some time in August or September.

    I submitted 20 cards to ARRL card checker in May, along with a LOTW submission. The LOTW entities were credited within a few days. The cards (non LOTW) entities showed up on LOTW today, a bit longer than a month since Dayton where I had them checked.

    The LoTW uploading has started--I got a QSL for 12M SSB!

    They are apparently just beginning their LoTW uploads.
    Out of 20 confirmed Q's (paper card) only 5 Q's
    are showing up as comfirmed on LoTW, and they were
    just done in the last day or so.
    I check my account most every day
    to see if there are any new confirmations.

    It's funny; I worked them on 40 Meter CW, but the QSO didn't appear in their website log, so two days later I worked them again on 40 Meter CW. Today I had confirmations on LOTW for both of the QSOs. I don't know what happened that my first qso didn't appear in their website log. Has anyone else here had that happen?

    Same for me.

    Looks like their LoTW upload is complete.
    All 20 Q's confirmed.
