Tom, KC0W informs DX-World readers that after a substantial wait he has been given approval for YS2/KC0W by El Salvador’s licensing authority.
“El Salvador is not rare at all but I hope to offer band fills for fellow CW enthusiasts especially in Asia & Europe. The DXpedition will be QRV during February 16-22, 2019. Bands 6 – 80 meters CW only. Running 1kW to homebrew 40 and 20 meter phased arrays. All other bands will be single verticals. I will be operating from the same beach QTH which HU2DX used in 2012 for their remarkable 45,000+ QSO DXpedition“.

DX-W IOTA of the Day
Turneffe Islands. NA-123 (V3)
On April 20, 2006, the Aves Island 2006 DXpedition YX0A initiated its transmissions and several hours later, our 80 meter SSB and digital operator Jose Valdes YV5LIX suffered a severe heart attack that took away his life. His teammates decided to continue the DXpedition in his honor, using the callsign YX0LIX under the immediate approval of the Venezuelan National Commission of Telecommunications officers present in the DXpedition. His body was airlifted by helicopter to the frigate and sailed to Caracas.
