The original proposed dates for this Dxpedition were Febr/March or April/May.
Since the original announcement there has been a general election in Myanmar and the new government will be installed in March. Licencing will be delayed until the new administration completes the transition.
We are in touch with the authorities. Our documents are with the administration. We have good liaison and we have in territory help to monitor and progress our license application.
The DXpedition will be delayed until after the summer period to allow plenty of time for licencing and for HF conditions to be as favourable as possible.
