Ducie Island is situated about 472 km East of Pitcairn, a little bit South of the tropic of Cancer. The island is only 6.4 sqkm large, there is practically no drinking water and very sparse vegetation can be found at a few places only. It is very difficult to get onto the island so only very few people are visiting it. But Ducie Island is a hotbed for thousands of seabirds.
The birth of the new Princess Elisabeth was reason for the Belgian licensing authority to allow the Belgian radio amateurs using the prefix OQ until Dec 31, 2001.
