3D2C - Conway Reef - 17.09.12

(Press Release #3). Paul, N6PSE, sent out the following on September 10th [edited]: "DXpedition to Conway Reef as 3D2C -- It is with great excitement that we announce that our preparations for a large multi-national DXpedition to Conway Reef are going according to plan. We now have 19 operators from all over the globe to participate in this tent and generator operation.
Conway Reef is located in the South Pacific Ocean and is #35 on Club Log's most wanted DXCC list.
The bulk of our equipment has arrived and is staged in Suva, Fiji. ICOM is shipping the IC-7600 rigs to us this week, and they will travel with the team to Suva. Our advance team is arriving in Suva on September 21st to commence with equipment testing and loading on our vessel, the venerable Island Dancer II.
The main Team is meeting in Lami Bay, Suva, and departing by ship to Conway Reef on September 24th. The Team expects to arrive at Conway Reef and become active on September 26th. We will complete our Dxpedition on October 5th, 2012, and return to Suva.
The main goals of this DXpedition are to work every amateur radio operator who needs Conway Reef for a new DXCC country. In addition, we will be active on all bands from 1.8 MHz to 144 MHz, including the 5 MHz and 50 MHz bands.
We will be active on CW, SSB and RTTY. Special attention will be made to work far away stations such as Europe and Africa during those periods when propagation permits. The propagation window for EU and Africa is very brief at times and signals may be weak, so we ask everyone in the honored HAM SPIRIT to stand by when asked so that we may fulfill this need. Our destination will have a wide range of options and possibilities.
We will use our Satellite phones to upload our logs on a daily basis to our on-line log. We will upload to LOTW approximately six months following the DXpedition.
Our team consists of these Operators: Hrane/YT1AD (Leader), Aleksej/ UA4HOX (Co-Leader-Operations), Paul/N6PSE (Co-Leader-PR & Fundraising), David/WD5COV, Vasily/RW4NW, David/AH6HY, Alan/K6SRZ (Team Physician), Alan/AD6E, Sergej/RZ3FW, Craig/K9CT, Stan/LZ1GC, George/N6NKT, Peter/ PY5CC, Mike/K6MKF, Jim/K9JM, Miguel/PY3MM, Luciano/PY5KD, Dragan/YT3W and Tevita/3D2TR. Our Pilot Stations are: Aca/YU1AA, Toma/YU1AB and Andre/V51B.
We wish everyone good propagation, and we hope that you enjoy working the 3D2C Team.
We are very grateful to INDEXA, NCDXF and all of the Clubs and in- dividuals who have provided monetary support for this Dxpedition. We sincerely hope we can satisfy your needs!
At this time, we are seeking additional Club and Individual Sponsors to help us defray the costs of carrying out this DXpedition. Donations can be made via the 3D2C web page. OQRS will be available upon completion of the DXpedition.

T30 - Western Kiribati - 17.09.12

3rd Press Release - T30PY/T30SIX
"We are working on the last minute logistic issues as well as on final preparation of our operation. Although Air Pacific has changed our flight schedule multiple times, we are confident that we can keep up with the announced schedule.
The first station should be on the air in the first GMT hours of October 16th. Then we will gradually have all 4 stations running. The quality and even the availability of local Internet need to be confirmed. Our goal is to upload logs in Clublog daily as well as send news to the community periodically. The current DXpeditions in the Pacific area give us additional information about the likely local propagation behavior on HF. We emphasize that we plan to have Low Band stations in every SR/SS as well as the 6m station on EME on every MR/MS. We are grateful for the support received from many individuals, clubs and companies. Support is key for the success of this enterprise.

REPUBLIC OF KOSOVO (To Be On The Air Soon!). 17.09.12

Excerpts from the IARU Region 1 Web page reports: "Monday, September 10, 2012 marked the end of supervised independence of the Republic of Kosovo, a European country with a population of 2 million, and the beginning of its status as a fully sovereign state." It also states, "Kosovo is now an independent country, which must be honored as such. As of today, a total of 91 countries, including most of the industrialized world, such as USA, Japan, Germany, the United Kingdom and France along with the Benelux and Nordic countries, have recognized the Republic of Kosovo. These powers have endorsed the final settlement, the fulfilment of which is now celebrated in Kosovo's capital Prishtina. An Amateur Radio working group headed by IARU Region 1 President Hans Blondeel Timmerman, PB2T, and including IARU Region 1 Executive Committee Member Nikola Percin, 9A5W and Mission Goodwill Kosovo Coordinator Martti Laine, OH2BH, together with their associates are in the final stages of assisting Kosovo's Telecom Authorities in drafting regulations governing Amateur Radio in Kosovo, to bring the original Kosovar operators and their re-vitalized Amateur Radio Association back to the international community.
