Scott Thompson, KB6CC, operated Amateur Radio while on a temporary assignment with the United States Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) as part of the disaster recovery efforts following Typhoon Axel. This unofficial "DXpedition" was located on Majuro in the Marshall Islands, specifically: 7 degrees 0 minutes North, 171 degrees 20
minutes East.

Majuro is the seat of government for the Republic of the Marshall Islands (RMI), one of the many island groups that from 1947 to 1986 were part of the Pacific Trust Territories administered by the United States (KX6). Now, under a 1986 Treaty of Free Association with the United States, the Republic of the Marshall Islands is a new country (V73) progressing towards complete independence and self-determination in the Pacific.
