St. Paul Isl., CY9. Update. The St. Paul Island DXpedition scheduled for August 19-29th, 2016, has added another new member/operator to the team - Phil, VA3QR. This completes their roster (9 operators). Phil has been a ham since his teenage years, enjoys DXing, contesting, and technical aspects of our hobby. This will be his first DXpedition.
 "How Can You Help?" (per CY9 Web site) - The team is contributing most of the funding for the DXpedition. Individual donations are very helpful and appreciated. No amount is too small. The single most expensive item is the cost for the transportation to access the island. While a contact cannot be guaranteed, those who do "work (QSO) us, that have made a donation, will automatically receive a QSL card. No need for a request to be made, no postage, no green stamps.  It is a small way for us to say 'thank you'". We will send your card as soon as possible upon completion of the DXpedition automatically.

We're grateful for significant sponsorships by INDEXA www.indexa.org and the German DX Foundation www.gdxf.de. We're happy to announce a partnership with Tangaroa Blue Foundation www.tangaroablue.org and the Australian Marine Debris Initiative www.tangaroablue.org, in conjunction with Parks Australia and the Department of the Environment, to conduct an island cleanup and debris inventory of Middle Cay. This cleanup and our ecology and animal reports will provide valuable data and help protect the many sensitive and threatened species of Willis Island."

South Sandwich & South Georgia Island. Update. Excerpt. Paul, N6PSE, sent out the following press release on July 15th: The Intrepid DX Group is pleased to announce that all of our plans are moving forward very well. We are testing and re-testing our gear one last time before it goes into a container next week and makes its voyage to meet the RV Braveheart in New Zealand.
At this time, we wish to announce that we are adding 6 meters as well as 60 meters to our plans. We will make a solid effort to be QRV and to give out contacts on these bands as well as 10-160 meters.
We wish to clarify our operating strategy: We will be QRV on 6-160 meters with six stations and we invite you to work us on all bands and modes. We will also select a band that is propagating for the most hours of the day, and we will be QRV on that band for the duration of our activity. This is a means to increase the number of unique call signs in our logs and to give everyone a chance to work us. We will be looking to give ATNO contacts at every opportunity.
We encourage you to visit our website
www.intrepid-dx.com/vp8 and donate via the PayPal link. It's easy and free to donate. Alternatively, you can mail a check or money order to the address listed below:

St. Paul Isl., CY9. The St. Paul Island DXpedition scheduled for July 2016 has added another new member/operator to the team - Bill K5DHY. Bill is an avid DX'er, and officer of the LSDXA. The team thanks all who completed the survey on their website. Needs were clearly made for 6m and RTTY. They will plan to have a RTTY mode running most of the time; for sure they will keep an eye on 6m. Visit their Web site often for details as they develop at http://www.CY9dxpedition.com  (August 19 th. to 29 th.) 
Ohio/Penn DX Bulletin #1222 15 Jul. 2015 - 29 Aug. 2015


Micronesia, V6. Lance W7GJ, writes; Hello 6m DXers! This year's dedicated 6m EME DXpedition will be from V6M in PK90va, August 26-September 3, 2015, in celebration of my 50 years of VHF DXing. I hope to surpass my record from last July's DXpedition to KH8, where I completed with 68 stations on 6m EME. Anyway, you know that you can count on me to be making a dedicated effort to work as many serious 6m operators as possible! I will not have any internet or email communications from V6, but I have published a planned operating schedule on my web  page. Full details are here: http://www.bigskyspaces.com/w7gj/Micronesia2015.htm
This is a solo expedition, and is going to be an expensive one. It seems like I am beginning to run out of cheap rare places to go on 6m EME DXpeditions that are new DXCC for virtually all the contacts!  Please consider making a contribution, as explained on my web page above, either direct by mail (to the address shown at the bottom of this email) or to my PayPal account (which is the same as this email address). MNI TNX!
Please call me if you do copy me on some terrestrial mode of propagation. If I am calling CQ on JT65A, I am probably aiming at the moon, so please answer me with the JT65A EME mode from WSJT9 or WSJT10 - NOT any HF JT65A program! With limited moon windows, I don't have time to shut down the EME operation and switch modes, so I will only answer callers who call using the proper JT65A version when I am calling CQ on EME with JT65A mode.
I don't expect to have any terrestrial ionospheric propagation but it you hear me on CW or SSB, please answer me on whatever mode I am using at that time. Please don't bother asking me for contacts on any other bands - I will be WAY overweight with my 6m gear, and will not be operating any bands other than 6m.
Hopefully this advance notice will provide adequate time for you to get your station geared up to connect with the first ever 6m EME activation of V6 ;-)  If you have any questions about EME or JT65A, please look at the links on my website or email me for information. You can also find a large number of very helpful and experienced 6m EME operators available to help you through the Magic Band EME email group (subscription info below). I hope to be able to give you another new DXCC on 6m soon!

He states [edited], "I plan to be there sometime in early September to commemorate the 70th anniversary of the end of Battle of Wake along with a group of World War II vets. I have reserved a special callsign K6W from September 4-19th, 2015. I am seeking monetary donations and sponsors that would like to help to put Wake Island back on the air in 2015. I will be operating 80-6 meters using Digital(PSK, RTTY and JT65) and SSB. Donations will off set a small portion of my out-of-pocket equipment shipping, transportation, lodging, operating and postage expenses while there. Wake Island is currently #46 on DXCC most wanted in ClubLog and currently restricted to the public. There are no commercial flights in to the island.

2016 or later.

Palmyra Atoll, KH5. Update. Lou N2TU and Craig K9CT previously announced a DXpedition to Palmyra Atoll at the International DX Convention in Visalia, California. Palmyra (KH5) ranks #9 on the Most Wanted List and #2 in Europe.
The Pacific Islands DXpedition Group has been awarded permission to activate Cooper Island in the Palmyra Atoll, January 11-26th, 2016.
A team of highly experienced operators and veterans of many DXpeditions has been assembled. Team members include Craig/K9CT, Lou/N2TU, Jerry/WB9Z, Tom/ND2T, Mike/K9NW, Ralph/K0IR, John/K6MM, Bob/K4UEE, Hal/W8HC, Dick/W3OA, Jim/N9TK and Glenn/W0GJ. The Team plans to operate five stations, 160 to 6 meters on CW, SSB and Digital modes, using a callsign to be announced at a later date. Antennas dedicated to working Europe will be deployed due to the high need and propagation path difficulty.
Critical to major DXpeditions are the immediate, up-front commitment costs. For instance, most of the equipment (antennas, coax, wire, connectors, and site material) has already been purchased, tested and shipped to Palmyra. These procurement and shipping costs are a significant portion of the overall DXpedition costs. It is estimated this DXpedition will incur costs of over 200,000 USDs plus individual and personal expenses.
We are pleased we have received support from so many Foundations, Clubs and Individuals already. We are about $30,000 USDs short of our need for the next payment November 1st. So please donate as soon as possible to help with the upfront costs. Our website, Palmyra2016.org, has a "Donate" link to facilitate your generous contribution. Without your support, this DXpedition would not happen! ... Lou N2TU and Crain K9CT

Palmyra Atoll, KH5. (Press Release #1, April 18th)[edited]. Craig/K9CT) and Lou/N2TU are proud to announce a DXpedition to Palmyra Atoll. Palmyra (KH5) ranks in the top ten on the Most Wanted List and #2 in Europe. After many months of negotiations with US Fish and Wildlife and The Nature Conservancy, the Palmyra Island DXpedition Group has been awarded permission to activate Cooper Island in the Palmyra Atoll during January 2016.
Craig is a veteran of many of the "Most Wanted" DXpeditions. He co-led Sint Maarten and Swains, and operated from Conway Reef, Midway, Cocos Island, Wake Atoll and Amsterdam Island. Lou was a member of the Swains Team and led the Wake Atoll Commemoration. Craig and Lou have just returned from the Navassa Island K1N DXpedition.
A team of 12 highly experienced operators and veterans of many DXpeditions has been formed. Team members include Craig/K9CT, Lou/N2TU, Jerry/WB9Z, Tom/ND2T, Mike/K9NW, Ralph/K0IR, John/K6MM, Bob/K4UEE, Hal/W8HC, Dick/W3OA, Jim/N9TK, and Glenn/W0GJ.
They plan to operate five stations over a 14 day period, 160 to 6 meters on all modes, using a callsign to be announced at a later date.
Critical to major DXpeditions are the immediate, up-front commitment costs. INDEXA and NCDXF have been most generous in their support of Palmyra 2016 and this support is sincerely appreciated.
Logistical support for this operation is being provided by Kimo/KH7U and Don/N1DG. Joe/W8GEX and Janet/W8CAA have volunteered to assist the team in fund raising. Their experience in this area is highly valued.
Our website, Palmyra2016.org, developed by team member John, K6MM, will provide updates as they become available. The Donation page of the website is currently active. The group will also have an OQRS link on the website for easy QSLing.
