Knut Magne Haugland, LA3KY, of Norway, passed away on December 25. He was 92. Haugland was one of six men, who with Thor Heyerdahl in 1947, successfully crossed the Pacific Ocean in a 45 foot raft made of balsa wood and bamboo — named Kon-Tiki — to prove that people from South America could have settled Polynesia in pre-Columbian times.

P5DX-what could have been….
This morning, I had to cancel a DXpedition. It was one of the hardest decisions of my life. It was not for lack of permission, it was not for lack of a team and equipment willing to go.
