UPDATE – We did indeed receive word from one of the organizers. Basically, there is currently no news and the US Government, as yet, hasn’t given permission to any groups trying to activate KH1.
August 27 – No further information did materialize in May this year, so we have contacted a few people involved in this announced DXpedition to ascertain if KH1-2017 will indeed happen. QRX..
