LATEST NEWS by Marshall, K5QE, dated 2011-12-20: Hello everyone
interested in the K5N Winter DXpedition to DL99-DM90. Enclosed
(email at reflector) is a picture of the TV van with the two 6M5X
antennas on board. We will raise the mast to about 20ft when we
are in the actual operating location. Do you think we can get a
permit to drive this down the highway?? It would fall under the
WIDE LOAD class...... If everything works out OK, we will drive
to Rocksprings, TX on Monday,  Dec 26th. We will set up on Tuesday
morning and start running shortly  thereafter.  We hope to have
Internet, so look for us on PingJockey. We hope to be there... [MMMonVHF]

Bill Moore NC1L
Awards Branch Manager
The following operation has been on hold pending a review of the status
of their location (In accordance with DXCC rule 8 regarding it being
"land-based"). After a brief review it was determined that this was, in
fact, a land based operation so it is now approved for DXCC credit:

5N6/YL2SW - Nigeria

If you had credit for this operation rejected in the past, send a note
to to have your record updated. You can see the results
when the change has been done to your record by checking your LoTW

not be able to reply to all requests).

CY0 - Sable Island DXpedition (Dec 28, 2011)
Flight to Sable Island delayed. Severe winds on the flight path to Sable made it
unsafe to fly this morning. They will try again at 1200 UTC on Thursday morning.
Even though conditions look better, a new concern is forecast for winds from the
South in combination with high seas which could bring water onto the "beach
runway". If this were to happen and the "beach runway" is lost due to standing
water, there could potentially be no access to Sable Island for the next 4-5
weeks. Continue to monitor this website for the latest updates: []
HK0NA - Malpelo Island (Dec 27, 2011)
Four members from the HK0NA Team, namely Jaime HK1N, Sal HK1T, Faber HK6F and
Bolmar HK1MW have departed from the pier at the Bahia Malaga Navy Base. They are
aboard the Patrol Boat Jose Maria Palas. The target of this advanced team called
The Fantastic Four is to set up all 11 stations, 2 camps and wireless network in
order to have everything ready for the main group arriving on January 21, 2012.
To these four brave men - who are going to spend more than 40 days on Malpelo
and have sacrificed their holidays away from family - we have to express our
admiration and gratitude. []
KH3 - JOHNSTON ATOLL (Dec 24, 2011)
Yesterday Susan W7KFI confirms rumours that her KH3 Johnston Island planned
operation has been postponed for 4-6 weeks. This is primarily due to USF&W (Fish
& Wildlife) requiring that Susan pulls her boat out of the water and has the
hull scraped, then repainted. Permission [to land] would then be granted. The
shipyard who would do this work cannot get Susan an appointment until approx
four weeks from now, so shove off date will be beginning February at earliest.
Susan reaffirms she will definitely be going, and KH3 will happen, but now no
firm date for the moment. Her permission to operate is through February. It’s
worth noting USF&W would prefer Susan to have the hull scraped and push off date
within two weeks from now, however as already mentioned the shipyard cannot do
the required work until four weeks time. [KH6CG/]

73 and Good DX!
