Willis Island DXpedition 2015

An international team activated amateur radio DXpedition station VK9WA from Willis Islets November 14-23, 2015. Willis Island was #32 on the Club Log most wanted entities list at the time and had not had a significant activation since 2008.

The team operated 160-10 meters on SSB, CW, and RTTY from Middle Islet. The island is 450km off the Eastern Australia coast and is only 4 acres in size. We concluded the operation with nearly 62,000 contacts.
