V63PR at Falalop Island, Ulithi Atoll

I worked with V63PR at Falalop Island, Ulithi Atoll, Federated States of Micronesia yesterday evening local time on 30 meter band. It was not easy as my antenna was a low vertical and I had to repeat my callsign several times and received a signal report of 449.

Several years ago, V63LR was on the air from the same island. I looked for the signals in vain then, though I was able to receive interesting report on the possible site of the remains of Japanese airmen who perished somewhere in the atoll during WWII from the operator, Kei san, after his visit to the island.

V63PR is an island expedition by JJ8DEN, one of the most active expeditioners in Japan nowadays. The operator seems to have amazing energy to go to oversea as well as domestic locations every year from Hokkaido.

I wrote a letter to the operator two years ago asking questions about his location of his activities in Sado Island, Niigata, conducted half year in advance to my operation in Sado. He was very kind to reply, but it took a few weeks after I wrote my letter since he was somewhere in the Pacific when my letter reached his home.

Some of his activities took place in national parks or qusi-national parks, I think it would be nice if he becomes interested in the WFF program.
