Due to danger, the three ops have to come off early. They will QRT approx 1300z but may be sooner than that.
UPDATE II 3 @ 1600
Operators landed on the Island after a few attempts and they are up with 2 Stations.
Yesterday the PJ7PK team attempted to land Pelikan island a few times but were unsuccessful due to high sea swell.

Cross fingers for today !
A team of five operators consisting Dom 3Z9DX, Jeremy EI5GM, Dave EI9FBB, Frans J69DS and Col MM0NDX will soon be on their way to St Maarten with the primary aim of activating Guana Key of Pelikan NA-247NEW.
Approximate dates of activity are scheduled from October 6-10, but as with most island activations everything is dependent on calm seas and good WX.
Using the callsign PJ7PK, the group plan activity on 40-10m, CW/SSB.
