First Worry Later" (WFWL).

3C9B AND 3C0C DXPEDITION. As of press time, no word on these operations
has been reported on their Web page. We would have thought that the 3C9B
operation to Bioko Island (AF-010), Equatorial Guinea, would have started
by now. For more details and updates on the 3C0C and 3C9B DXpeditions,
visit the Web page at:

3V, TUNISIA. SWL Ashraf "Ash", 3V4-002 (KF5EYY), will be active as 3V8SS

Giannarelli/IZ5MMB (A25MB), Frosty/K5LBU (A25CF), Irish/K5ZOL and
Lehman/KD5TAN (A25AN). They plan to have three stations on the air
operating 160-6 meters, depending on conditions. The group will also be
in the CQWW DX SSB Contest (October 30-31st) using the callsign A25HQ.
Each operator, using their own callsign, will handle their own QSL cards
by the Bureau or direct ( address). QSL for A25HQ go via K5LBU.

connection). The group is looking for sponsors. For more details and
update, visit their Web page at:

AT10, ANTARCTICA. Bhagwati, AT10BP, is looking for contacts with the USA
and JA stations. He writes: "Propagation on HF is still very poor; I can
just make good contacts on 20 meters with South Africa and when conditions
are better I can work some EUs. Very few US and JA in my log, and I'm
wondering what is the best opening from JA and USA through Antarctica.
Feel free to send me an E-mail to schedule skeds, I'll be pleased to do
so. My E-mail adress is:
....73 Bhagwati Prasad Semwal VU3BPZ/AT10BP, Communication Officer MAITRI,

PACIFIC ODYSSEY 2010 TOUR (Update/Operation Cancelled). On May 27th, members
of the Ukrainian DXpeditioners Team (UDXT) announced the following:
"We apologize to the world radioamateur community – for the reasons
independent of us, we are not able to carry out the expedition.
On the 25th of May at 10 p.m. local time the engine of our ship
"Southern Cross" fell out when we were 120 nm from Kanton island.
The captain Paul Green decided to turn the ship and go back to the port
of Apia, Samoa, under sails. Such decision was determined by the fact
that the entry to the Kanton's cove without engines would be impossible,
and the repair of engine in the ocean is impossible too.
The way to Apia, Samoa, will take approximately 8-10 days with favorable
wind under sails. The food and water must suffice. Our main task at the
moment is to come back safe to Apia."

site at:

GMFF-024 - For the first time GM4FFF will be working from Flanders Moss
National Nature Reserve (GMFF-024) between May 29-30th. Flanders Moss
National Nature Reserve (NNR) is one of the largest areas of relatively
undisturbed lowland raised bog in the European Community. Because of its
natural heritage importance, it has been designated a European Special
Area of Conservation (SAC) and a Site of Special Scientific Interest
(SSSI). Quite simply, it is probably the biggest and best remaining
raised bog in Western Europe. It is one of the last remaining natural
landscapes in Scotland and is home to many plants, insects and birds.
It also tells a fascinating story of the social and cultural history of
people living in this part of Scotland. There is much to interest people.
The team consists of MM0DFV, GM0WRR, and GM0EZP. They are going to
contact the reserve's manager to make sure that they can have a place
to stay overnight. The most important location references
are - WAB Square: NS69; Grid Locator: IO76VD; Latitude: 56°09'12''N;
Longitude: 04°10'39''W; IOTA: EU-005; EU Area: SC30 (Stirling). QSL
Manager is MM0DFV.

YB1CCF, YB1KAR and YB1NWP will be active as YE1C during the CQWW WPX CW

ZL8, ZERMADEC ISLANDS (Update). Announced on May 10th, the Zermadec team
finally signed the charter contract to sail with the "MV Claymore II" to
Raoul Island in November 2010. Nigel Jolly, owner of the well-known
Braveheart, purchased this ship in 2009. Originally built in 1966 in
Wilhelmshaven, Germany, she now mainly serves the route between Mangareva
and Pitcairn Island to deliver cargo supplies to Pitcairn Island and to
carry passengers between the islands. While the Braveheart will carry out
another DXpedition at nearly the same time, the team is proud to be the
first DXpedition to use the "MV Claymore II". Though the ship isn't used
to the special needs and habits of amateur radio expeditions, the crew
definitely knows what they are doing. Nigel and his son Matt have access
to several experienced seamen who all took part in demanding expeditions
(of course also DXpeditions like ZL8R, ZL9CI, FT5XO, VP8GEO/THU or VP6DX).

ZS8M, MARION ISLAND (Update). Pierre, ZS1HF, on Marion Island (AF-021),
was mainly active on 20 meters this past week. Best times to watch are
