NEWS UPDATE – Fred, KL7FBI has been on the air during each of the days of this last week, checking the propagation numerous times between approximately 2 and 6 UTC.

Hello guys,unfortunately we have to postpone our DXpedition once again.
Due to the rising Covid-19 cases in Europe tourists who would like to visit Suriname must bring a negative Covid-19 test and are required to be quarantined for 10 days after arrival which makes a trip to Papegaaien island impossible for me.
The second problem is that on the way back to Germany I would have to travel via Amsterdam airport which could make another Covid-19 test and another quarantine at home necessary. New date: Easter 2021 (02.-05. April 2021)
vy 73 & happy DX

AF-115 New IOTA

As far as ST6SIT goes, there will now be a long wait for this. I am behind the project and will update when I have something more concrete. 2022 will be a better year : (by Col MM0NDX on 2nd/March/2021)

****************************************************************************************************************************

DECEMBER 2, 2020 – As news of Covid vaccines emerge – with hopefully an improving picture across the world by the middle of next year – plans for this particular island activity will restart after March 2021. Future updates will be posted here.

AUGUST 25, 2020 – Earlier this year, an experienced IOTA team were issued with the callsign ST6SIT. Their intention was to activate Mukawwar island, AF-115 – a never before activated IOTA in the Red Sea, off Sudan. Paperwork, on the ground support and planning was ongoing then Covid-19 struck. Like everyone and everything else, the team will wait until the Covid situation improves globally with a view to eventually renewing the ST6SIT license and restarting plans.

OC-155,299

The Pulap atoll is part of the West Chuuk Group (OC-155). This IOTA reference was activated twice, in 1979 by DF6SL/KC6, who operated from Puluwat, and in 2004 by V6O (W5BOS), who operated from Pulap. The group is currently is high demand, (MWL 14.4%). The Satawal atoll is part of the East Yap Group (OC-299), which is still to be activated for the first time.The plan is to arrive in Weno by plane, and sail first to Pulap, located approximately 240 km away westward, and then to Satawal, situated another 240 km further to the west. Radio operations will be carried out from each atoll for 5 days (4 nights). There is no WiFi communication on these islands, but the chasers will be able to track our progress via the InReach system. The respective link will be made available on this website before the start of the expedition. This will also allow us to be in communication with the Pilot station, who will inform the chasers on our progress, and provide us with appropriate feedback from them. Local supply boats sail to Pulap from Weno (Chuuk), and to Satawal from Colonia (Yap). However, their schedule is irregular, and doesn't provide for stays of a few days on the islands. Additionally, such boat rides can be postponed or cancelled with short notice, due to a myriad of factors. Since our project requires a specific time schedule, the only option was to charter a boat. This will not only guarantee that our goals can be achieved, but will ensure that the overall travel time will be kept at a minimum.
