3D2C – Conway Reef - 04.07.12

Press Release #1
The World-Wide DX Group, led by Hrane Milosevic-YT1AD, is pleased to announce our next DXpedition, as 3D2C from the remote South-Pacific atoll of Conway Reef. This Dxpedition will take place from September 24th to October 5th, 2012. The World-Wide DX Group is the same group which brought you the recent 3D2R Rotuma Island Dxpedition in September, 2011.
Our primary objective is to activate Conway Reef with a goal of providing as 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 target European contacts during those periods when propagation is possible and we will ask JA and North America to stand buy during those brief periods when the bands are open to EU.
The team consists of sixteen operators including: Leader-Hrane Milozevic-YT1AD, Co-Leader Alex Romanov-UA4HOX, Co-Leader Paul Ewing-N6PSE, Dave Flack-AH6HY, David Jorgensen-WD5COV, Vasily Kozerodov-RW4NW, Dr. Alan Eshelman-K6SRZ-Team Physician, Alan Maenchen-AD6E, Sergej Yanovsky-RZ3FW, Craig Thompson-K9CT, Stanislav Vatev-LZ1CG, George Williams-N6NKT, Alexander Kuznetsov-RW3RN, Peter Sprengel-PY5CC and Mike Flowers-K6MKF.
Our QSL Manager is Hrane Milosevic-YT1AD. We will have OQRS, we will accept direct and bureau QSL cards. We plan to upload our logs to Club Log on a daily basis.
At this time, we are seeking Foundation, Club and individual support for this Dxpedition.
You can find out more about our plans at our 3D2C website http://www.yt1ad.info/3d2c/index.html.
Thank you,  The World-Wide-DX Group

3D2C team will be QRV from Conway Reef Island on 2m and 6 EME with WSJT65 A,B,C on next FRQ:

PT0S – St Peter and St Paul Rocks - 03.07.12

The Araucaria DX Group, in conjunction with the TX3A Team, is pleased to announce a DXpedition to St. Peter and St. Paul Rocks, PY0S, under the call sign PT0S. The DXpedition will take place in the late November to mid December, 2012 time frame. The actual dates will depend on weather conditions and will be announced later on http://pt0s.com/.
There has been an official ban on Amateur Radio activities from PY0S. Although the ban, which was created for environmental and safety reasons, remains in place, the Araucaria DX Group was given a special permit by Brazil’s SECIRM (Secretaria da Comissao Interministerial para Os Recursos do Mar), the Brazilian Navy, Ministry of Environment and LABRE to conduct a two week long operation.
The operation will have a strong low band focus. There will be a dedicated 160 meter station operating on 160 meters from sunset to sunrise. A second station will be on 80 and 40 meters at night. During the day we will operate two stations on the higher bands — and 6 meters — based on conditions. RTTY will also be supported.
The DXpedition’s goal is to give this rare and difficult entity to as many amateurs as possible, taking maximum advantage of this unique opportunity. The group will be using newly designed RX antennas and receiving equipment to allow small and QRP stations to work PT0S on all bands, but especially on 80 and 160 meters.
All QSO-s will be loaded onto LoTW within 36 hours of taking place.
Operators will be Fred Carvalho PY2XB (PY2XB/PY0F, PQ0F, VP5/PY2XB, 8P9XB), Peter Sprengel PP5XX/PY5CC (PY0FM, PW0T, HK0NA). Tomi Pekarik, HA7RY and George Wallner, AA7JV. Due to environmental considerations, we have been limited to four operators.
