KH6VV/KH4 ---> The DXpedition to Midway Island [425DXN #1476] has been postponed. 'We've all seen the latest pandemic news. It's not progressing in a good direction, or anything like the earlier predictions', Ron KH6DV posted to qrz.com on 9 Julio. 'We have encountered a strong and understand- able pushback related to the original operation date of Octubre 2020. Once there was the possibility of moving the operation to the second half of Feb- ruary 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 Febrero and will be submitted this week. Two things now need to happen: (1) we need more operator interest, and (2) we need more donations to the expedition PayPal page(KH6VV[@]outlook.com)'.
