T6 - Afganistan - 4.10.11

 (Press Release #2). Paul, N6PSE, Co-Leader of the T6PSE DXpedition, reports: "The Intrepid-DX Group continues to move forward with our plans to conduct a DXpedition from Afghanistan to take place during ten days in May of 2011. Due to security concerns, the exact dates and location of the DXpedition will not be announced until the eve of our activation. The team is closely monitoring the security situation and events in the news coming from Afghanistan. Unless conditions worsen in the comings weeks, our plans are a go!
Our primary objective is to activate Afghanistan with a goal of providing s many DXers as possible a 'new one' with this rare DXCC entity and, as a secondary objective, to give as many band-slots as possible. We will focus on North and South America during those periods when propagation is possible to those areas. We anticipate that we will be working EU amateur stations nearly around the clock, but we will ask for their cooperation to allow us to work North and South America during those brief periods each day when propagation will permit us to work those far away regions.
The team consists of eight operators including: Co-Leader Paul Ewing/ N6PSE, Co-Leader David Collingham/K3LP, Hrane Milosevic/YT1AD, Krassy Petkov/K1LZ, Al Hernandez/K3VN, David Flack/AH6HY, Alex Pavlenko/UX0LL and David Ritchie/W6DR.
You can find out more about our plans at: http://www.intrepid-dx.com/t6pse/index.php
Thank you, Paul S. Ewing/N6PSE, Co-Leader T6PSE DXpedition"
