Day 2 of driving done

Hi everyone. After 1100km of driving yesterday, Andy VK5MAV and I have done another 1100km of driving again today and have arrived safely in Esperance WA.

Tomorrow involves 480 km driving to Albany WA and then we can finally take a break from this marathon driving effort.

For those of you in North America who are a little worried about getting in the log, as you know I also put a strong focus on listening for this part of the world and this DXpedition will be no exception.

Apart from the typical vertical on 20m, we will also have a 3 element 20m vertical dipole array fixed short path to North America. So in the period of 1000 to 1600 UTC there will be many times I'll be listening for North America only on 20m SSB (400W) using the VDA. Then I'll switch back to the vertical other times and listen for other areas of the world.
