H40, TEMOTU PROVINCE (H40KJ and H40BQ Op Cancelled!). Jacek, SP5DRH,
informs OPDX readers: "I regret to inform the DX Community about the
cancellation of our Temotu DX-pedition. The cancellation is the effect
of a dramatic plane delay that caused total destruction of our trip
planner. We have lost all our booked and already paid connections to
Solomon and Pigeon Island. Carrier has not been able to establish new
and suitable for us booking to continue our trip. What we have been
offered was far beyond the time we could spend on this dx-pedition.
Therefore, we have decided to go back to Warsaw.
Under these circumstances, we feel obliged to refund the donations
that we received, however, as we have suffered substantial financial
loss, we suggest to transfer these funds for the expedition to come -
Kiribati T30RH/T30AQ. Should any of donators disagree with our suggestion,
please email us, and we will try to refund his donation as soon as
possible." For more details, see: http://www.sp5drh.com/h40

PJ7, SINT MAARTEN. Team leaders of the PJ7E report that some of their
equipment is stuck on a boat due to tropical storm OTTO, which ended up
becoming a hurricane after turning back into the Atlantic. This made it
impossible for the boat to approach and land on St. Maarten on Friday
due to high seas. The boat had to travel to Barbados, but is expected
to return to St. Maarten on Sunday, Oct 10th. The editor of QRZ DX,
Carl/N4AA, reports that team co-leader Joe, W8GEX, states: "The weather
today (Saturday) is clear and sunny. The boat with our equipment is due
in here at 7-PM SUNDAY (Oct. 11th) evening. We will meet them, off-load
the equipment and separate it for the two operating sites (SSB & CW).
They will deliver the two loads to us early MONDAY morning (Oct. 12th).
Our plan is to set up one station and one antenna as soon as possible
so someone can get on the air right away. As the other stations are
assembled and antennas put up, they will be put on the air as quickly
as possible. As for Saturday night (Oct 10th-0400z), PJ7E will have one
station on SSB (IC706 with a dipole for 40/20m). The CW crew has already
been on the air with CW/RTTY (using PJ7/homecalls). They are running an
IC7000 and a vertical antenna, and have been worked on bands from 40 to
17 today (Saturday)." JUST A REMINDER. Contact made before 0400z, October
10th, will not count for a new one! The PJ7E Web site is expected to be
updated regularly at: http://www.stmaarten2010.com
They also have set up accounts on FaceBook - PJ7E, and a Twitter account
- http://twitter.com/PJ7E. Once they are on the air, they plan to upload
their logs twice daily, around 8 am and 8 pm.
