Guinea, 3XY. Update. (Press Release). Members of the Italian DXpedition Team will be active as 3XY1T from the Los Islands (WW Loc. IJ39cl) between February 18th and March 4th. The latest news was sent out by the 3XY1T Team: Everything is ready as planned for our departure on February 17th, 2016. We anticipate arriving at Los Island in the morning of Thursday 18th. The island does not have a power grid; our resort has a generator operating only during the night. We rented two generators for daylight operations; as a consequence, there might be occasional breaks for the maintenance of this equipment. We received several requests for RTTY activity. In order to offer such a "mode new one" to as many OMs as possible, we shall concentrate our RTTY operations on a single band, i.e. 15m.
In analyzing statistical data, we noticed that there is a high demand for this country in VK/ZL. These stations are invited to use the cluster to warn us of possible openings. Long-path openings to Japan will be closely monitored, and we suggest these stations to make use of propagation forecasts to optimize their chances. We plan to have, as usual, our real-time online Log available via internet, with uploads every minute (barring connection problems). It can be accessed at the address
http://win.i2ysb.com/logonline.
Also, the online QSL request (OQRS) will be active as from the very first QSO. We advise to check the time/date of the latest online update, as shown on the Log entry page, before repeating a QSO. Specific requests should be addressed ONLY to our pilot stations, Arturo/IK7JWY and Sergio/IK0FTA (for the 6m band). The pilot stations can check and correct possible Log errors.
During the DXpedition do NOT send mail to I2YSB or other Team members, such messages will not be answered.

They mention that they don't collect QSL cards, so they strongly recommend using the Clublog's OQRS tools for Bureau and direct requests. It makes their work faster and more efficient and allows them to save your money.
The OQRS system for Bureau and direct requests will be activated at the end of the DXpedition. All QSOs will be uploaded into Clublog on a daily basis during the DXpedition. For LoTW, the complete logs will be uploaded within 6-7 months after the DXpedition. Any questions or claims concerning possible log mistakes should be sent to this E-mail address:
5j0p@wp.pl Please do not send an E-mail until the end of the operation. After the DXpedition is over, your QSO will be checked carefully against the original log by their QSL manager. If you prefer traditional QSL routing (not recommended), please send your QSL via the Bureau or direct to their QSL Manager SP6IXF: Mr. JANUSZ SZYMANSKI, P.O.Box 1808, 50-385 Wroclaw 46, POLAND. Direct requests should contain a self-addressed envelope (SAE) and sufficient funds to cover the postage fee (3 USDs or IRCs, extra donations are welcome) otherwise the QSL will be returned via the Bureau.

Juan de Nova, FT/J. Update. FT4JA will be on the air from March 29th to April 11th, 2016. These dates include the unloading and loading phases.
50 MHz. The period during which FT4JA expedition will take place is conducive to 6m. We will be in effect during a period of trans-equatorial propagation (TEP), which suggests many QSO on the magic band. We have planned some 50 MHz high-performance equipment including a dedicated station consisting of a DXBeam 6 element Yagi, an Elecraft K3, and an SPE Expert 1.3 KFA amplifier. The team will also include several operators that usually practice DX on this band and therefore know its subtleties.
The 6-meter station will operate mostly in a CW beacon mode (CQ FT4JA) whose frequency will be published in our plan. As our satellite internet access will be very limited, we cannot monitor the cluster. We will switch to a transmitting position (CW or SSB only) as soon as we hear someone respond. It is a method that has already proven its worth, particularly on Tromelin.
In an attempt to satisfy everyone, and because the technical challenge is very motivating, we also plan to try EME (JT65). Despite limited resources to work stations via the moon, it will be a first from Juan de Nova.
It is important for us to satisfy the greatest number, and having real ambitions on 6m is part of the adventure. However, to be consistent with our key objectives, our 6-meter QSOs will be in addition to the rest of the contacts and not to the detriment of our presence on the HF bands.
Sixitalia Weekly 23 Dec. 2015 - 11 Apr. 2016

Juan de Nova, FT. Update. Hi friends, FT4JA is your expedition! By supporting the Juan de Nova 2016 project you become in some ways a team member and as such it seems essential to us to share with you the preparation for the operation.
We are happy to announce that our tenth operator recently made it official that he will participate in the operation. We are talking about Diégo, F4HAU.
Our team of pilots is also ready. It will be managed by Cedric, F5UKW who will summarize the requests and comments received by regional relays who are: N5FG (NA / SA), ON9CFG (EU / AF), JJ3PRT (AS / OC). They will be the people to talk to before and during the expedition. We rely on you to provide them with relevant information to refine our propagation predictions and organize our traffic.
On the island, we will have a satellite connection. Although this set up is expensive, we consider it necessary to offer different services: online log, photos, news, correspondence with the pilots. Exchanges in this way will however be limited to the strict minimum in order not to increase the budget, already very tight.
The experience of our operation from Tromelin (FT4TA) is of course a tremendous asset. We have long debated the strengths and room for improvement. Although returns were extremely positive, we carefully recorded comments and remarks to strive for an even better user experience and close to your expectations.
The relationship of trust with the authorities allows us to involve a greater number of operators for a longer duration to maximize the chances of contact with Juan de Nova. With the support of several sponsors, we also develop our equipment to have more flexibility in traffic and satisfy the greatest number: a second set of VDA on some bands, improved RX system, more stations available.
It is clear that our budget is harder to reach because of the numerous major operations over a short period of time. Lets not forget that most of the expenditures are made before departure. Therefore, it is essential that the mobilization continue so that the Dxpedition can take place.
We count on your support and that of your clubs and associations. Each donation brings us one step closer to Juan de Nova. Lets hope that all DXers will in turn invest in the project. It is never too late and every donation, whatever the amount, is important.

Juan de Nova, FR/J. The FT4TA, although busy wrapping up their latest expedition, is already thinking about their next destination. They are planning to activate Juan de Nova (FR/J) in March 2016. The last team on the island was TO4E/TO4WW in 2003. Before that, the last major DXpedition took place in the 1980s. Hence the island ranks very high in most-wanted lists. Right now the group aims to get on the air for 15 days with 10 operators. See the website for more information to come: http://www.juandenovadx.com/

Juan de Nova, FT/J. Maurice, F5NQL, writes; Information from the Juan da Nova 2016 team. August 14th Press Release.
The team is mobilized and carries out many things to prepare under the best conditions our operation from the island Juan de Nova. Until our departure, we will keep you regularly informed through our official press releases and via our website. For this new adventure, it was possible to enlarge the team involved into the Tromelin 2014 operation.
We are happy to welcome Jacques F6BEE, Yann F1NGP, Patrick F2DX and Pascal F5PTM. They rejoin Vincent F4BKV, Flo F5CWU, Guillaume F4FET, Michel FM5CD and Seb F5UFX.
Well use the same equipment as the one used Tromelin, supplemented by various equipment placed at the disposal by sponsors. We are happy to have at our sides this year Elecraft (transceivers), Spiderbeam (fiber masts), Messi & Paoloni (coaxial cables), Expert - SPE (amplifiers), DX Engineering (80m phasing & accessories), MicroHam (interfaces), DX Avenue (6m DX Beam antenna). These companies allow us to implement all the desired equipment. We are very grateful of their support.
We do not forget foundations, clubs, associations and individual donators. Some already accepted our requests and renewed us their confidence. However, we are still far away from the set objective. Within 1 month, the first payment to settle the boat will have to be carried out. We'd like to make another call toward the amateur radio community to ask for his assistance and support. Like we have done with our previous operation, we are engaged in a meticulous control of the costs by studying each expenditure and by dismissing all things non essential to a DX Expedition.
The boat that we will use is sailing in the Indian Ocean throughout the year and the crew knows perfectly Juan de Nova and transports regularly scientists over there. Based on the experiment of our captain, we have determined dates by taking into consideration the end of the cyclonic season, as well as the best low tide conditions to unload our equipment at our arrival in the lagoon. We will be on the island from March 31st to April 14th, 2016. The callsign used during this expedition will be FT4JA. We recently received the confirmation from the administration.
By then, many points must be solved in order to propose a formidable experience on the two sides of the pile-up. More than ever we count on your supports. Join our page Facebook, Twitter (juandenovadx) and visit regularly our Web site http://www.juandenovadx.com

details and documentation involved; the Canadian officials were kindly, professional and a pleasure to work with. We have begun gathering the many items required for the DXpedition operation. Firm arrangements for transport have been secured."
The team continues to look for funds/donations due to the following as reported on January 1st: "One of the requirements for permission to access St. Paul is a very large Liability Insurance Policy. The dollar coverage size is large and finding an underwriter was a challenge. We are pleased to report that we now have the insurance policy paid for and in hand. This was a major challenge that team members worked diligently to accomplish." Those that have donated are listed on the Sponsor's list on the Web page at
http://www.cy9dxpedition.com/news--sponsors.html No amount is too small; all who donate will receive a QSL automatically without having to request one. The team is fully committed and investing significantly; your financial support will help and is appreciated more than words can express. The single most expensive item is the cost for the transportation to access the island. Donations can be made via this link: http://www.cy9dxpedition.com/donate.html
