HF Voyager is in the water

We successfully launched the HF Voyager on its shakedown cruise yesterday. It will be operating off of the Kohala Coast on the North side of the Big Island of Hawaii.

We are listening in the audio pass band of 14070 MHz USB.The 'operating protocol' for this mission is to call "KH6JF KH6JF de <your call> <your call>", Wait about 10 seconds and you should hear a response on your calling frequency. You will receive a Lat/Lon,  grid square, and a serial number as part of the message back to you. Please do not follow-up with an exchange at this time as we have no way to log any information beyond you initial call.

Feel free to call multiple times during the day. We do ask that after you get a response, you wait at least 10 minutes before you try again to allow other hams an opportunity to make contact.

If you have any comments or questions, please email us at jrfarc at jupiterfoundation.org.

Thanks and 73,
