Brian Lloyd WB6RQN works on his Mooney M20K 231 airplane equipped with Micom 3 ALE HF Radio.
Austin, Texas, USA: In June 2017, pilot and ham operator Brian Lloyd WB6RQN will embark to retrace the historic worldwide equatorial flight route, commemorating 80 years since Amelia Earhart's famous attempt at circumnavigating the world in 1937. Brian's aircraft is equipped with HF Automatic Link Establishment, and will be active on the ham radio ALE channels during the flight. Ham operators worldwide will be able to connect directly with Brian WB6RQN/AM Air Mobile on High Frequency SSB, ALE and AMD text messaging during the flight. The 125 Watt radio system is equipped with an under-fuselage HF antenna and SGC SG-237 antenna tuning unit.

Brian Lloyd comments, "At this point the planning shows that longest leg of the flight will be from Fiji, across Howland Island (where Amelia and Fred disappeared), and then on to Kauai, Hawaii. That leg is 2,788 nm (3,208mi or 5,163 km) long. The flight time for that leg will be about 15 hours."
The flight's final destination is 2017 EAA AirVenture in Oshkosh Wisconsin USA on Monday 24 July. There is a facebook page devoted to the Project Amelia Earhart 80.
