Susan is expected to sail to Johnston about mid January and be active from KH3 for a week, starting approximately on 21st January.
Susan is a 76 years old lady who likes to sail solo aboard her boat “USSV DHARMA.” Contrary to what her age might suggest, Susan is an expert on the latest technologies from the world of radio. Not limited to amateur radio traffic, she regularly uses Pactor3 to receive e-mails with current weather, knows how to keep in touch with the network of the Coast Guard and participates daily in the Pacific Radio Net on 40 meters (7088 LSB)for help with navigation.

She is now in Honolulu, Hawaii. Amazingly she got permission to land at Johnston Island, which last year was ranked the 24th most wanted DXCC entity. Johnston is an atoll on which the U.S. Air Force had a military base. The base was operational from 1944 to 2003, the year in which it was entirely dismantled, and today it looks like a barren island where obvious signs of human presence remains, but now everything is destroyed.
