I am hoping to have around 800W sometimes while mobile; more often 100W. Stops will generally be done with 800W to 3el.
I am working on a schedule right now and will get it out ASAP. Barry, KS7DX will be my Pilot. I will have cell phone and OnStar but no rolling Internet. When moving in early AM hours, I will be on 50.255 WSJT FSK441 mode 1st sequence.
During day hours, most likely a combo of FSK441 and a CQ CW beacon on 50155 until band opening indications appear. Please send comments special requests, etc. via private email off the reflector.

PY - Brazil - 07.16.11
Orlando (PT2OP) and Fred (PY2XB) will carry on an operation from Parazinho Biologic Reserve in Bailique Archipel (SA-045) From August 17th thru August 24th 2011.
The team will operate on SSB/CW and DIGITAL modes from 40m to 10m. They will use IOTA and DX frequencies. The callsigns have been issued as PQ8OP (Orlando) and PQ8XB (Fred). Orlando will carry on mostly Phone and Digital traffic. Fred will do mostly CW and also DIGITAL.
They will also have 6m capabilities and will monitor the band for openings. The equipment will be Icoms 706 and 7000 with an 400W THP amplifier. Antennas will be an SteppIR vertical (40-6m) and a Zepp (40-10m). Power will be off a Diesel generator. Eventually, during generator off periods, batteries will be used.
The Parazinho Bilologic Reserve is an biologic sanctuary. Only an Environmental Ministery/State Secretary outpost is available in the site. The site is about
300km straight line far from French Guyana border.
Few meters from the outpost there is an automatic Lighthouse run by Brazilian Navy. So this operation will not only account for a rare IOTA but also for WLOTA awards (L-1123) and ALRHS (number awaiting confirmation).
QSO valid for Brazilian Islands Diplom DIB AP-03; Brazilian Lighthouses Diploma DFB AP-03 and South American Lighthouses Diplom DFA.
The team will arrive in Macapa, capital city of the state of Amapa, on August 14th. Then on the 16th it will sail to the Biologic Reserve. The boat ride takes 12 hours to Vila Progresso - a small fishermen community, plus 30 minutes in a motor boat to the reserve. Boat ride schedule will depend on tides that can get amplitudes as high as 10meters.
The team will take food , water and essential goods as well a spare generator and fuel for the entire period. The team will return on the 25th to Macapa, depending on the tide levels.
To be confirmed, on the August 26th its planned an activation from São José de Macapa Fortress, the biggest historic brazilian fortress. Valid for DFH Historical Brazilian Fortress with code DFH AP-01.
PQ8OP cards will be handled by PT2OP and PQ8XB cards by PT7WA.

ST0 - Southern Sudan - 07.14.11
On July 9th, the Republic of South Sudan was born upon their successful declaration of independence from Sudan. The Country of Sudan has congratulated and recognized the Republic of South Sudan.
Today, on July 14th, 2011, the United Nations admitted the Republic of South Sudan as the newest member state. This is a significant achievement for this new country and a significant milestone for amateur radio. It is expected that the ARRL will now add South Sudan to the DXCC list of entities.
The DX Friends and the Intrepid-DX Group continue to move forward with their plans to activate this new entity with a multi-national DXpedition team. With our visas in hand, the teams will soon be making their way towards Africa and ultimately to Juba, the new capitol of this new nation.
We will have five active stations, operating 24 hrs a day.
We will be in regular contact with our US, EU and JA Pilot Stations and we will pay close attention to propagation reports from them. We ask that you please make contact with the pilot stations only during the DXpedition and to please refrain from contacting the team members directly via email. We will announce our call sign once we are in Juba and ready to become active.
The Intrepid-DX Group and The DX Friends.

The Republic of South Sudan Is Now a DXCC Entity
At 10:18 AM (EDT) on Thursday, July 14, the UN General Assembly met to vote on whether or not to admit the Republic of South Sudan as its 193rd member state. The Republic of South Sudan was admitted by a vote of acclimation and is now a member of the United Nations. Immediately following the General Assembly meeting, the flag of the Republic of South Sudan flew for the first time in front of the UN, ceremoniously marking its membership in the UN. Now that the Republic of South Sudan is a member of the United Nations, the new country is now a DXCC entity by way of Section II, 1(a) of the DXCC rules. The DXCC Desk will begin immediately accepting QSOs for this new entity, with a start date of July 14, 2011.
According to DXCC Manager Bill Moore, NC1L, the Honor Roll numbers move from 340 to 341 for the Top of the Honor Roll, and for Honor Roll it becomes 332. “The deadline for the Honor Roll and annual listings is December 31, so you must submit the new entity to DXCC by then in order to retain your Honor Roll status,” Moore explained. “For Logbook of The World (LoTW), you may submit all your QSOs with the Republic of South Sudan stations anytime. There is no need to hold them out of your log or do anything differently from what you already have been doing. You do not need to assign country names or identifiers. After we issue certificates to the Republic of South Sudan license holders, LoTW will make matches and assign the correct entities automatically.”
As of July 14, the International Telecommunication Union (ITU) has not announced a prefix block for the Republic of South Sudan.
For programmers and others who require use of the DXCC entity code, the code assigned to Republic of South Sudan is 521.
