CY0 - Sable Is. - 21.10.12

PRESS RELEASE - date October 20th
[edited]: "Murray/WA4DAN and Ron/AA4VK announce that everything is set for their operation from Sable Island beginning October 22-31st. The weather forecast for Monday looks good, at this time. The only concern is the beach conditions. Rain is forecast for Sunday which could potentially affect the 'beach runway'. Travel to Sable Island is always problematic.
Often, when conditions in Halifax are good, conditions at Sable Island are not good and visa versa. Also, the 'old' Britten-Norman Islander aircraft is not equipped with modern instrumentation, which limits the conditions under which it is safe to fly between the mainland of Nova Scotia and Sable Island. We were unsuccessful in two previous attempts to visit Sable Island. We are optimistic that Monday will be a 'GO'.
As previously advertised, our focus will be on 10, 12, and 15 meters, where the demand for CY0 is greatest, and especially on 10M, where new DX'ers, with modest stations, have the best opportunity to work 'a new one'. Also, we plan to be active in the upcoming CQWW Phone contest on 10, 15, 20, and 40 meters to provide CY0.
We would like to thank Gerry Forbes, Officer-in-Charge for Sable Island for being so helpful in trying to make this, our third attempt, successful.
In addition, we would like to express our appreciation to Gary, VE1RGB, who has provided invaluable logistical support in Halifax, Nova Scotia, the departure point for the flight to Sable Island.
Monitor www.cy0dxpedition.com for the latest updates."
