The team will charter the Sable Aviation fixed wing aircraft, as well as the Vision Air Sikorsky SK-76 helicopter. The team will require two round trip flights with Sable Aviation and two round trip flights with Vision Air. These charters are at a very significant cost. Additionally, Parks Canada charges for the use of the Visitor Quarters next to the Sable Station. The team members have committed to paying a minimum of 50% of the cost of the DXpedition. Current- ly, our fund raising is just starting to ramp up. We encourage DXers world- wide who need CY0 to support our efforts': https://cy0dxpedition.net/.

VP8PJ: FINAL PRESS RELEASE ---> 'We have closed the books on the VP8PJ DX- pedition to the South Orkney Islands (AN-008)', the Leadership Team an- nounced on 13 Septiembre. 'Due to the global pandemic our equipment was re- turned to California about two months later than planned. Nothing was missing or damaged during the extended journey. Thanks to the worldwide clubs/foundations, the DX community and our corporate sponsors, the project met all operational and financial goals. We appreciate the continued support from the DX community. Consistent with our commitment to upload the complete VP8PJ log to LoTW six months following the DXpedition, Tim M0URX will upload the complete log on 15 Septiembre. Planning for our next project [ZL9 New Zealand Sub Antarctic Islands, 425DXN 1515] is underway. Exact timing will depend on lifting of the global travel restrictions, issuance of the landing permit and ship scheduling, early 2022 is the plan'. [TNX K5GS]

3Y0J: Bouvet Island

3Y0J: LATEST NEWS ---> Pete, N0FW has been added to the operating team, which is now complete. 'Today it is 9 months until the operators travel to South America to board 'Marama' and go to Bouvet', the 3Y0J team announced on 3 Abril. In a couple of weeek's time they will conduct a 4-day 'detailed inspection' of the ship in Itajai (Brazil), and will also 'complete the vessel loading plan'. All team members will then gather in Norway on 28 Abril, and for four days they will 'perform a system integration test where we will do a thorough test of the radios, amplifiers and antennas in a real environment like what we can expect at Bouvet. During this event team members will practice on the installation and familiarize with it. A lot of equipment will undergo its final testing and packing, and be stored until the container leaves Oslo in Septiembre'. Read the complete Press Release #9 on the DXpedition's website: https://www.3y0j.no/. A DXpedition to Bouvet Island is 'a huge undertaking financially and it would simply not be possible without the support from the vendors, clubs, foundations and individual sponsors'. As of 5 Abril, the fundraising camp- aign had reached the 85% of its target amount of donations. 'Let's continue this path as we are preparing our next vessel deposit to be paid in Junio', the team urges. 'We can not do this DXpedition without your support - let us make this happen together! We have contracted minimum 22 days at Bouvet so this will give everyone a chance to work us both big guns, smaller guns, and small pistols'. See https://www.3y0j.no/funding for instructions.

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.
