CY0S: Sable Island (NA-063)

CY0 - Originally scheduled to take place sometime between Octubre and Noviembre 2022, the CY0S DXpedition to Sable Island has been post- poned until 20-29 Marzo 2023. 'The reason for this significant change is due to a large, six-week project Parks Canada has on the island beginning on Octubre 1 and going to at least mid-Noviembre 2022', the team says. 'By moving the DXpedition to Marzo 2023, the team hopes to take advantage of the late winter, early spring band conditions and improving solar numbers. On a less positive note, Sable Aviation informed us of another increase in the fuel sur- charge for our flights to the island. The fuel surcharge has now doubled'.

W8S: Swains Island

W8S: SWAINS ISLAND 2023 ---> 'This week the W8S team had another conference call about the planning for the upcoming DXpedition to KH8/s Swains Island', Ronald PA3EWP wrote on 4 Noviembre. 'Due to the Covid-19 restrictions, it will remain impossible to travel to American Samoa in the coming months. The limited number of flights, only 5 the first quarter of 2022, from Hawaii to American Samoa with the additional restriction to do a Covid-19 test 5 days before departure in Hawaii makes travelling extreme difficult. Also tourists have a lower priority to buy a ticket. The risk is too great to travel to Swains in the spring of 2022. Two members of our team are also part of the 3Y0J Bouvet team scheduled for Noviembre/Diciembre 2022. The entire team therefore had to decide to postpone the W8S Swains DXpedi- tion until Marzo 2023. This is the only opportunity to be on Swains for 15 days with the same team as our original plans in 2020. Our project has certainly not been canceled but postponed to the spring of 2023. An extra advantage that the propagation is much better on the higher bands'. Updates will be posted to https://swains2020.lldxt.eu/, as well as to Twitter and Facebook.
