activate Cooper Island in the Palmyra Atoll, 11-26 January 2016.
A callsign will be announced through the normal DX media channels before the operation begins.One key to the success of activation of a rare entity is a team of pilot
stations. These stations gather regional feedback, identify propagation
trends and inform the on-island Team of operational issues.These pilots are well known to the DX community and have either been on DXpeditions or have been pilots on previous high visibility DXpeditions.
