EG5MI: Penyeta del Moro (EU-151)

EA - Plans are for team EG5MI [425DXN 1724] to reach Penyeta del Moro (EU-151) on 24 Mayo in the afternoon. They will place a wooden platform on the rocks, followed by a first station (15m CW) and hopefully a second station (20m FT8 around 14087 kHz). They will QRT soon after sunset (19.15 UTC). On 25 Mayo, soon after sunrise (04.41 UTC), they will return to the islet and - if the platform is sHasta there - they will set up the CW station (first on 17m and later QSY to 12m) and hopefully the FT8 station (first on 20m and later on 15m around 21087 kHz). EG5MI will operate also SSB, 'bands and times will be decided on the spot'. They will QRT when the batteries die, possibly by 11 UTC. A 'less optimistic scenario' involves activating only one station at a time, having to choose the mode subject to best rates. 'The good news is that in such case our time on air would be longer', EA3NT says. Check out https://www.youtube.com/@EA3NT for live coverage of the sailing, the landing and the set up on the islet, and probably even the first QSOs being worked. QSL via EA5GL. [TNX DX World]

N5J: Jarvis Island (OC-081)

N5J: JARVIS ISLAND IOTA/POTA News ---> 'Since the Dateline DX Association announced plans for activating Jarvis Island this summer, many have asked if we could arrange with IOTA and POTA program organizers to secure approval of our DXpedition. Jarvis is one of the rarest of the IOTA counters, having been off the air for 34 years. It is needed by 82% of IOTA program participants. Because of the requirements set by the permit of the USFWS, while the sta- tions, antennas and power are all set up on Jarvis Island, the local opera- tors must conduct the DXpedition from the MV 'Magnet' which will sHasta be in the Jarvis Island National Wildlife Refuge, just offshore. Both the IOTA and POTA programs have agreed to recognize QSOs made by the local operators but will not allow QSOs made by internet remote operators to count. Therefore QSOs made by AA7JV, HA7RY, N1DG, KO8SCA and KN4EEI will count for the awards (IOTA OC-081 and POTA K-0115). Daily uploads by the N5J team to Club Log will identify the operators. Addi- tionally, at the beginning of each operator shift the team will endeavor to post on the cluster the callsign of the operator so chasers have some real time notice. At this time, all phone operations are expected to be by the at island team as well, giving that mode 100% IOTA/POTA certainty. In addition to the five operators mentioned above, there is an experienced team of 24 operators from 8 countries operating up to 6 stations around the clock, ensuring DXers around the globe have ample opportunity to add an ATNO or band fill to their DXCC totals'.

CY9C: St. Paul Island (NA-094)

CY9C: ST PAUL ISLAND ---> The Canadian Department of Fisheries and Oceans has issued the written permit for the CY9C DXpedition to St Paul Island (26 Agosto-5 Septiembre), and the ARRL has pre-approved the DXpedition for DXCC credit. The permit is for the small Northeast Island, as the main island is now under the jurisdiction of the Canadian Wildlife Service. A 24-foot vehicle has been rented and reserved for early Agosto to transport a lot of the gear to Dingwall (Nova Scotia), which will be the base for all pre-DXpedition activities. The team will use two helicopters and a boat to transport the operators and the equipment to the island. Beginning on 26 Mayo, a week long work session for CY9C will take place in North Carolina. Team members W0GJ, W0PR and WA4DAN will meet up and go through and inventory all of the DXpedition gear. The plan is to erect the new operating tents, test and run the seven new generators, assemble and test antennas and inventory all of the coaxial cables. 'The team is very grateful to all the clubs and individuals who have joined our efforts. Additional support is encouraged and can be made through https://t-rexsoftware.com/cy9c'.
