his driver) hold out. Check for QSL info. Update: Start in Chickasaw and
progress counter clockwise through Chickasaw, Bremer, Butler, Floyd, Howard,
Mitchell, Worth, Winnebago and Hancock. He is coordinating with other teams in

MS0INT - Isle of Rockall, EU-189 (Expedition Postponed)
  Much has happened since the first press release was issued on August 27th. A
few days later, we got word that the 2009 MM0RAI/p Rockall team were again going
to attempt an activation of EU-189 at the end of September. To cut a long story
short, IOTA chasers will be aware that the Belgian team did eventually activate
the island, with the aide of a converted navy rescue vessel and large
inflatables - we congratulate MM0RAI/p on their achievement as we all know how
heavy the seas can be out there in Autumn.
  With careful consideration and much deliberation, we have decided to postpone
our intended activation of the islet for at least one year. This decision was
not taken easily considering our planning and organisational aspects were going
extremely well. Suffice to say, we believe an activation so soon after the
Belgian effort now makes Rockall a less attractive target - that is the crux of
our decision.
  It is not lost on us that the majority of the world, outwith a proportion of
Europe, still require EU-189 for their IOTA scores. With that in mind, this
planned activity will not be cancelled, only postponed.
  All donations will be refunded. We thank sincerely those kind operators and
groups who pledged financial support.
  What we can say is that another excellent location/target is now being
organised. This involves a rare DXCC and IOTA. However, unlike MS0INT 2012
plans, we prefer to keep silent on this, and only release news and website one
week before departure, sometime in mid-2012.
Best regards

73 and Good DX!
Dave Raycroft, VA3RJ
