he realized he could get fed early. This is what cats do.
I'm up early because I am trying to contact Wake Island on 40 meters and that's when propagation is best even though today it will be lousy.
Wake is a DXpedition and therefore I have a limited time, unlike England which will be there for a while.
The Wake DXpedition is dedicated to the 98.
The Japanese force that took Wake Island in late 1941 murdered 98 civilians that were Morrison-Knudsen employees.
Years ago I met a guy that had been on Wake when the Japanese took it. He had been evacuated along with the Marines and sailors that had been taken prisoner. He had spent 4 years in Japanese captivity and when he got out M-K had his job waiting.
He was in interesting old man that was dying when I met him and he showed me a card M-K had given him listing him as a survivor of Wake-Cavite-Guam, three places M-K had people captured from.
The old duck came from a constriction family and as soon as his brother heard he was either dead or in Japanese captivity he went straight into the SeaBees and built airfields in the Pacific.
ANyway I am up, I have checked propagation reports my rig in on frequency and the antenna is tunes up.
It doesn't look too good but propagation says I have a fighting chance if I can beat the big guns.
We'll see what happens
