St.Paul Island, CY9M 2012

We are pleased to announce a new DXpedition to CY9MSt. Paul Island. Here is the announcement published on DX-World.net, that we quote integrally.

The Mediterraneo DX Club is a sponsor of the DXpedition and will follow them during all the adventure. As usual QSL service will be available for all of our regular Members

St Paul Island is called the ”Graveyard of the Gulf” and that is where an international, seasoned team of DXers will be heading to later this year.

Plans are well under way for a 10-man team to activate this now wanted DXCC entity, which was last on air in 2005. When you consider most needed entities (perhaps out with the Top 10) are activated every five years or so, it is now time to mount a serious effort from CY9. Read more »

DX World – DXpedition of the Year 2011

We report this interesting survey proposed to all of us from the site dxworld:

 

A full month has passed since the DXpedition of the Year poll was released. Almost 10000 total votes cast. Thank you very much for participating!

With 39 noteworthy calls listed – proving there were so many excellent expeditions last year – it was best considered to open up the poll with each Dxer having five votes – primarily to add to the fun of choosing your favourite(s) – whilst acknowledging an outright champion. Read more »


HK0NA updates #7

IMPORTANT INFORMATION – PLEASE READ
MOST MISSING LOGS FOUND!
Be advised that Op A logs from the top of the mountain arrive late and some QSO’s therefore may not be in the current online log until the next upload. Overall, logs are uploaded about once a day. If you notice that your QSO is not showing up before the “last” QSO in the database date/time posted here, wait for the next upload. If still not there, you may want to work them again.
We do realize that there are some log gaps and the team is doing everything they can to correct the situation. The gaps seem to be related to a software issue with their logging program. These gaps should not reoccur since the log collection process has been changed. At this time we cannot guarantee that we can recover the missing log data. We hope that this is not the case. But we may not know for sure until after the DXpedition is over. Read more »
