3Y0I BOUVET ISLAND DXPEDITION NEWS (Update/Need Ops!). The following was
announced/posted on the 3Y0I Web page  on May 1st:
  After receiving absolutely no single word of reply to our invitation
from the 3Y0Z organizers (we leave that for your own judgement), an
important decision has been taken by our team.
  We're now open for applications to join the 3Y0I Bouvet Island Expedi-
tion...
  A full inspection of the expedition vessel by the team in person is
planned after our trip to Pacific. There are 2 reasons to do so. We wish
to avoid any circumstances that wouldn't allow us to put 3Y0I on the air
and we also wish to reduce spendings to minimum. Thanks to proper planning,
total cost of the expedition is already much lower than any other similar
venture announced recently. More savings to come after the inspection...
  Our main gear container is already on route to South Africa, where
our journey to Bouvet will begin from.
  As said before, we invite experienced operators to join efforts to
activate the 2nd most wanted entity during Antarctic summer. More details
available on request by email at: . Don't forget
to attach your ham radio CV and to ask your boss for 1 month+ vacations.

           the callsign K4D between June 2-9th. Dog Island, Florida, is
           an extremely rare IOTA because access is controlled by the 20
           or so homeowners on the island. There are no hams on the island,
           and the only activations have been done by Bruce over the last
           4 years. Access is by permission only and permission by one of
           the homeowners. It is only accessible by private charter or
           single engine fixed wing aircraft. The airstrip is overgrown
           so private charter is the only real choice. There are no streets,
           roads, stop signs, trendy cafes, or beach-front bars. If you
           need it, you bring it. Activity will be both SSB and CW, on 40-2

           Operations are expected to be on 80-6 meters using SSB, RTTY,
           FT8 and the satellites. They will be on the air as much time
           as possible for the Rally activities.

  NA-234.  Tim, NL8F, informs OPDX that Yuri/N3QQ and himself are heading
           to the "Islands of Four Mountains" group, specifically Kagamil
           Island, starting May 23rd through May 26-27th. The operators
           were able to secure the boat "Raven Bay" for transport as well
           as permission from the wild life refuge on May 2nd. Tim states
           that he has been working on this operation to secure authori-
           zation for the past five years. The operators will be active
           as KL7RRC and plan to have two stations on the air using an
           IC-7300 and a SDR Expert Electronics radio into several vertical
           antennas of various types as there are no trees. Operations will
           be on CW, SSB and FT8, depending on conditions. QSL Manager is
           N7RO. Tim mentions that there is no internet connectivity, but
           logs will be uploaded after their operation. This island group
           was last activated by the Russian Robinson Club (RRC), from the
           Aleutian Islands, Alaska, between July 21-27th, 2008, as KL7DX.
           It was called the Cleveland Volcano DXpedition. See the KL7DX

                      http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=026fW4rYcwg
           Tim, NL8F, adds: "As always with rare activations costs are
           high so any help with donations would be appreciated." For

LEBANON (OD) NEWS (60m Allowed). IARU Region 1 reports that Lebanese
radio amateurs now have access to the 50 MHz band (6m). The Ministry
of Telecommunications of the Republic of Lebanon, and thanks to the

  REALTIME BAND CONDITIONS WEB SITE :
  The purpose of this experimental Web site is to provide 24-7-365 actual
  (REALTIME) band condition information to CW QRPp, QRPe and CW/SSB for
  Contesters interested in increasing their scores. It can also be of
  benefit to other Radio Amateurs to determine band conditions for Nets
  and casual QSO's. This information is NOT based on any software pre-
  dictions or any kind of satellite based readings. It is based on a
  new Ionospheric sounding method called "HF Ionospheric Interferometry"
  which operates very similarly to the PolSAR system used by NASA.

are talking with Pompeian coordinator (on their plans) and they need a
permit for amateur radio operation from the chief of Islands. They also
need to figure out the V6 ship schedule because it is always changing.
Look for more details to be forthcoming.
