K1N Interview for MDXC by W0GJ

1- The 1st question is “mandatory” Dott. Glenn: it has been 25 years from the last activity in KP1.   This made of Navassa the Most Wanted #1. How did you feel being part of the team?

 

We have been working on getting permission to operate from Navassa (and Desecheo) since 1998.   It has been a very long and difficult road working to get permission from the U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service who has jurisdiction over these entities.   We had two Congressional hearings in Washington, D.C., and several presentations and several appeal hearings (like a court hearing) at various high level USFWS offices.   In 2009 we were granted permission for Desecheo (K5D) and we thought that Navassa would follow within 18-24 months.   However, several key individuals retired and several were re-assigned to other posts and Navassa never happened.   We literally had to start completely over with presentations and hearings. A small team of us (the KP1-5 Project) have spent untold thousands of hours working on this project. Consequently, the pressure to perform and make Navassa a successful operation was enormous.   We carefully selected a team that were not only good operators, but experienced in logistics and other needed skills.   During the entire preparatory time and during the operation there was not one instance of conflict or personality problems.   We were focused to work together as a team and to be as efficient as possible.

8° World Meeting&Convention – The Official Site

Dear Members,
This year we have organized our 8th Meeting in conjunction with one of the most successful events in the South of our country: the HamRadioShow, organized by the ARI Pompeii.

The event, now in its thirteenth edition, came among the most important events organized by Hamradios in South Italy. An appointment which collects consents exponentially, year after year.

Let’s meet together on 21 and 22 February 2015 at the A1EXPO in Pastorano (Ce). The coincidence of the two events will surely be a great opportunity to meet all together, new and old friends.
During the first day (at 10:30 am) it will be a session of examinations for the US amateur radio license, thanks to Angelo Marcone IK8VRQ (info: ik8vrq@gmail.com Cell. 389.5995959). Next, a cycle of speechs about MDXC’s activity and stories of many of DXpeditioners we heard and contacted in radio during the past few months.

The program of the Meeting is also available on the OFFICIAL SITE of the event, set up in a few days by our Webmaster Max, IK8LOV # 29. Here is the link of the program http://www.mdxc.org/meeting2015/programma/

You can book your stay at The Qeen Hotel. Information on costs here: http://www.mdxc.org/meeting2015/hotel/

The Perseverance DX Group is pleased to announce their intention to conduct a DX-pedition to the Chesterfield islands, currently number 25 most wanted on Clublog. Initial planning has begun for an expedition later in 2015.

The expedition yacht Evohe from Dunedin, New Zealand will provide the transportation to the island. Subject to licensing and landing permit formalities, it is expected a team of up to 12 operators will be on the island for up to 12 days. The team will sail from Noumea, New Caledonia.

Team members, who have committed, to date, include: Pista HA5AO, Les W2LK, Heye DJ9RR, Norbert DJ7JC, Mike WA6O and Gene K5GS. Additional team members will be added throughout the planning phase.

Our website is under construction. Watch the usual DX sources for information. We expect to announce additional details in January, 2015.

Please direct questions to Gene K5GS or Pista HA5AO at their e-mail address listed on QRZ.com.

It is generally thought the last time a Cayman Brac – ZF9 prefix – was used is 1998. Therefore, plans are to QRV as ZF9/ZF2CI on April 29 and May 1, 2015. (two separate days)

From The KP1-5 project
RE: K1N Navassa Island DXpedition

Navassa: A once in 32 year opportunity!

Within two weeks the K1N Navassa DXpedition should be QRV with up to 7-8 stations.  Our exact departure date will be decided at the last moment by USFWS and weather windows.  The team will be arriving at our staging point a few days before the earliest possible window and will be ready for a rapid deployment.  As soon as USFWS has landed on the island and declared it is safe to proceed, we will start the helicopter flights and commence operations.  We hope to have a basic camp established by the end of the first day and if things go extremely well, we hope to have several stations on the air by nightfall on the second day.  Helicopter deployment will continue for a total of three days before the camp is fully established.  A boat landing is not possible this time of year and also helicopter sling loads off our standby vessel are impossible.  So, additional equipment and supplies will be moved ashore with manpower.  This will not be an easy project!
