Midway Atoll        
 

 

 

Stepping Stone of The Pacific

Well known as a World War II battleground, a military base and a trans-oceanic fuel stop, today Midway has an entirely new purpose. Managed by the US Fish and Wildlife Service this ancient volcanic atoll is now a national wildlife refuge and gateway to the remote Northwest Hawaiian Islands.

Thousands of people once worked on Midway, but today only a handful of dedicated staff and volunteers remain. Their ongoing mission is to bring the atoll back to its natural state and maintain a precious national monument.

Working closely with Midway's new caretakers and mindful of the sensitive environmental issues, this DXpedition demonstrated how Amateur Radio is now a welcome activity inside one of America’s most protected wildlife reserves.
