The following 12 operators are highly experienced by various contests and DXpeditions: Rolf/DL7VEE (Initiator and team leader), Werner/DJ9KH, Heye/DJ9RR, Rudolf/DK3CG, Joe/DK5WL, Guenter/DL2AWG, Norbert/DL2RNS, Georg/DL4SVA, Hans/DL6JGN, Franz/DL9GFB, Wolf/DM2AUJ and Sid/DM2AYO.

 September.

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!

Wake Isl., KH9. Update. Mike, AG6IP, is in the planning stages for a DXpedition to Wake Island in September 2015 for 2 weeks. 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. I have also operated out of ZC4 land UK bases in Cyprus twice in 2007 and 2014 as ZC4MIS. Please share link to other amateur radio operators around the world. Thanks..... Mike."

More details later.
A multi-card color QSL with island scenes, similar to the QSLs for their recent CY0 operations is planned. WA4DAN will handle "Direct" QSLs. An OQRS service is being considered. Until a dedicated PY0F website is created, updates will be posted at
http://www.AA4VK.com and at the various DX bulletins. The idea for this "reunion" trip merged just sitting around talking during the SEDCO/ W4DXCC Convention in September, 2014.

They announced this past week on their Web page http://vk9wa.com the following: "Our eight man team vk9wa.com/team is now complete. Fund-raising and planning continue. 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."
Added details: The complete list of operators are now Robert/N7QT (Co-team leader), Jared/N7SMI (Co-team leader), Sandro/VE7NY, Adam/K7EDX, Hawk/SM5AQD, Gus/SM3SGP, Allan/VE7SZ, and Hal/W8HC.

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.

South Sandwich & South Georgia Island. 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.

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/
Sixitalia Weekly 3 May 2015 - Mar. 2016 

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.
We’ll 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
