CY0 - Sable Is. 02.06.11


"Although the two previous attempts to access the island were unsuccessful, the team is  eagerly  looking  forward  to   March anticipating  improved  weather,  propagation  and a  successful landing", Randy, N0TG says. "We are pleased to  note  that  routine supply flights to Sable for the small staff on the island have been successful and on schedule during January. Hopefully, this will be a continuing trend of improved flight conditions as  we count down to an early March operation. Most of the DXpedition equipment and supplies  are stored in the aircraft hanger in Halifax, Canada, ready to be loaded onto the aircraft". Bookmark www.cy0dxpedition.com for updates.

XF4 - Revillagigedo Is. - 02.07.11

 

Santos, EA4AK, sent out a press release announcing a DXpedition to Revillagigedo (XF4) during March. The assigned callsign will be 4A4A. The DXpedition's Web site is: http://www.revillagigedo2011.com
The team leader and DXpedition organizer is Marcos, XE1B, and the QSL Manager is David, EB7DX <see: http://www.eb7dx.com>. Confirmation will only be DIRECT and LoTW. A team of 9 operators will operate from "Isla Socorro" (officially "Benito Juarez" Island) between March 3-20th. The island's reference numbers are: IOTA NA-030, WAZ Zone 6, ITU Zone 10, Grid Locator DK48MS and located -approx- at Longitude 111º West and Latitude 18º 46´ North. Sunrise will be around 1320z and Sunset around
0100z. Currently the team consists of Marcos/XE1B (Team Leader/SSB), Santos/EA4AK (Logistic/SSB), Vicente/EA5AFP (CW), Fernando/EA5FX (CW), Francisco/EA5KM (CW), Javier/EC4DX (SSB), Edu/EA8AUW (SSB/Digi) and Alejandra Ortiz (Geology - Photography). Activity will be on 160-10 meters, possibly 6 meters, using CW, SSB and the Digital modes. They plan to have a CW team and a SSB team operating simultaneously on the air at all times. Yagis will be used for the higher bands and verticals for the lower bands. Efforts are being made to bring some linear amplifiers to the island. Santos, EA4AK, states, "Because propagation conditions are still low or average we must make a special effort to optimize the DX windows. I have prepared some 'propagation movies' (one for each band) for Revillagigedo to help those with less experience estimating the best times/bands to work 4A4A. You can see the movies on my YouTube 'channel' at: http://www.youtube.com/user/EA4AK  "
The press release also mentions: "The licenses and permits for the 4A4A DXpedition have taken long time to obtain due to the complexity of this archipelago. Revillagigedo is a natural reserve, a protected reserve of the biosphere. Only visits or expeditions of scientific nature are permitted by the relevant Mexican authorities (a prestigious Mexican geologist will travel with the team to perform studies of natural life interest while 4A4A is running). Also, it is an emplacement of military interest, and tightly under the control and supervision of military authorities. These two permits from those two mentioned authorities are absolutely necessary before proceeding to request an amateur radio operating license to the telecommunications authorities." This 4A4A DXpedition is exclusively financed by the personal financial effort of the team of operators. The team is looking for some support from sponsors, clubs or other organizations. See the official Web site (provided above) for details on how to help them. Santos, EA4AK, has also provided a few links for interest:
