A few moments ago DX-World received an email from Dom 3Z9DX (still travelling home from his recent TI9 adventure) to inform he has written permission (100%) to operate from a VERY most wanted DXCC entity in Asia.
While we know the specific entity in question, we cannot yet reveal any more information until dates are announced. At this moment it looks like an early 2016 operation for approx. 5 days.
All we can say is you read it first here and that firm plans and website will be announced throughout 2015.
Press Release #4
The Intrepid-DX Group is very pleased to receive a major grant of $50,000 from the Northern California DX Foundation to support our plans to activate South Sandwich and South Georgia Islands in January/February 2016. At the time of these activations, they will be the #3 and #7 most wanted entities.
It is only through the generosity of amateur organizations such as the NCDXF that we can make this DXpedition possible. This grant by the NCDXF gives us the foundation with which we can solidify our plans and move forward with successful activations of these rare islands.
The 3Y0F QRZ.com page has recently been updated. From this new update we can see that an alternative location on Bouvet could be used to stage the DXpedition, which is tentatively scheduled from December 22, 2015 to January 15, 2016.
Also mentioned is the ship RV Akademik Fyodorov complete with helicopter.
The plan is to have 12 team members with 6 sets of equipment during the activity. Current operators listed are UN7PCZ, SM5AQD, LA7GIA and PY2PT. Pilot stations are ON9CFG and KY6R. More information and website coming soon.
Paolo, C91PM informs he plans to be active /P from Bazaruto Island AF-072 between February 28 to March 3, 2015.
