Q. How do you work KH1?

  1. Make sure you can copy before calling. Do not call us if you can't copy!

  3. Call once on a clear frequency...Keep it short so that you can hear us.
  4. Make fast QSOs...we call you, just give signal report!

  6. We will upload QSOs often to Clublog...do not dupe QSOs, unless you are not in the log.

Q. What is the LoTW upload policy for early donors -- i.e, before the DXpedition begins?
A. Dateline DX Association has a policy of uploading all pre-QRV donor's QSOs to LoTW when we return from the DXpedition and are confident the logs are correct.   We expect this to be about 10 days after we QRT (it's a long boat and plane ride home).  It is our special thanks for those who support us to get there.
