NEWS UPDATE from Ron, KH6DV for

We’ve all seen the latest pandemic news; it’s not progressing in a good direction or anything like the earlier predictions. The U.S. now has 132,000 deaths and the forecast is for 200,000 by November.

We have encountered a strong and understandable push-back related to the original operation date of October 2020. Once the possibility of moving the operation to the second half of February 2021, the conversation turned more positive.

The application for the Special Use Permit for Midway has now been edited and now proposes a period of the second half of February 2021 and will be submitted this week. Two things now need to happen:

  1. We need more operator interest.
  2. We need more donations to the expedition PayPal page. ([email protected])
