En liten status oppdatering på VK9MA – Mellish Reef.
Vi har nå fått pakket alt utstyret vi skal ha med oss til Mellish. SM5AQD + XYL har stått for denne jobben, og det har ikke vært småtteri de har utført de siste ukene.
De har vært nede i Tyskland hos DL3DXX Dietmar og hentet masse utstyr som de har transportert med bil og henger til Sverige. Hvor de så har rengjort alt utstyr for smuss og annet som vi ikke vil smitte ned Australia med når vi kommer dit. Det er jo strengt mtp hva en kan ta med seg inn i det landet. Deretter har de pakket ned alt sammen på paller. Dette vil nå bli hentet av Schenker på SM5AQD sitt QTH og transportert til Gøteborg hvor det blir sendt videre i fra. I alt 814 kg med kabler/antenner/filtre m.m.

Martin PY2/LU9EFO and Evan PU5SVE have obtained the callsign ZZ0T for a future DXpedition to Trindade & Martim Vaz.
Authorization is in process with the Brazilian Navy. Dates not yet confirmed. However, the Navy ship leaves every 2 months for Trindade (change of military & scientists), so keep it DX-World for announced dates.
The Dateline DX Association (most recently the K4M team) is very pleased to announce that it has been selected by the Pacific Islands Refuges & Monuments Office of the US Fish and Wildlife Service to pursue an Amateur Radio expedition to Baker Island National Wildlife Refuge (KH1).
We will announce dates of activation and other pertinent information once a vessel has been selected and approval of said vessel and dates is approved by the Service.
We wish to thank the US Fish and Wildlife Service for their trust in our group to safely and responsibly activate this rare location.
Don Greenbaum, N1DG, Tom Harrell, N4XP, and Kevin Rowett, K6TD co leaders

Hello Friend. How are you doing? I am going to activate an island in the Amazon in July and I would like to count on your help. If you can, for example 5 people together, helping with 20 dollar, will be 100 dollar that will help me a lot.
The trip will be over 20 days and I'll have to take 2 plans, 2 boats, rent a hostel, food plus unforeseen. For you have an idea of Brasili (Brazil's capital), place where you start the journey to the city of Belém are more than 2000 kilometers. The economy in the South American continent is in crisis and everything is very expensive. The project needs a lot of money and I'm paying most of it.
