    When you get to Wetok, please look for the eyeglasses I lost there. They are black horn-rim with a Diopter of 1.75. I need them for driving.

    FAQ's V73RRC Ujelang Atoll

    I would like to thank Freq AA7BQ for publication and all who responded!

    Q: Costs of participation
    A: Airfare see from nearest airport to you with destination Majuro, check estimated dates December 3-21
    plus $2-3k for food/transportation/logging inside Marshall Islands and your regular bills for 2-3 weeks
    Q: Skills required
    A: Handling of SSB/CW pileups, extra language in addition to English is a plus (Spanish/French/Japanese)
    Q: Travel documents
    A: US passport, non US Citizens may require a visa
    Q: What so special about Ujelang Atoll and why now?
    A: Ujelang atoll is uninhabited island and no regular transportation is available.
    We are cooperating with Enewetak-Ujelang Local Government (165ft vessel Lady E) and can tag along for a small donation comparing real costs of chartering of this vessel. Next trip to Ujelang may or may not happen for many years.
    We are on their schedule and it is subject to change/cancellation.
    Q: Operating positions
    A: At least two

    Eniwetok, a nice place to visit

    Spent a glorious 12 mo stay there with the USAF 1253 AACS Sqdn in '59/'60. Lots of swimming, phone patches, swimming, contesting, swimming and operating from KX6BT.
