NA-211



The K7TRI team continues its work toward ensuring that all necessary logistics are in place for the dates announced (Sep 6-9, 2019). We are pleased to acknowledge the grants received from RSGB, Clipperton DX Club, and DX News, along with individual support offered by almost 90 chasers from 21 DXCCs, for which we are most grateful. Meanwhile, we would like to convey once again, to all chasers, that we are looking very badly for their support.@Please help us defray some of the huge costs associated with this project by considering a donation at http://k7tri.weebly.com. We thank you all for your consideration!

Kind regards,@@@Cezar, VE3LYC

A team composed of Yuri (N3QQ), Cezar (VE3LYC), Sandro (VE7NY), and Adrian (KO8SCA) will attempt to operate between Sep 6 and 9, 2019, from this iconic location. This rare IOTA reference was on the air once, 21 years ago, as is in demand by 94% of IOTA members. The team informs that the price tag of this project is $20k, and asks for your support. Please visit the expedition website and consider making a donation. QSL via VE3LYC (direct or bureau).

NA-187

Last Thursday I had a very productive 3 hour in-person meeting and lunch with the Government Official who granted written permission back in March for access to NA-187 (White Rock).

(Snippet from the March email)
>I've completed my due diligence and spoken to each agency who may have an interest, >and concluded that my initial assessment was correct in that there are no site-specific >resource issues, so as long as you conduct your visit to the island outside of the seabird
>nesting season (March through August), and avoid disturbing any marine mammals, you >do not need any additional permit or authorization.

During out meeting, I also extended an invitation for the Official and a Marine Biologist Researcher to join me, in hopes they can collect samples which might prove useful in helping to ascertain what may be causing certain recent malicious problems to marine life of the California Coast.

There are additional restrictions involved with this activation - no generators and no gasoline are allowed on White Rock.  This means low power battery operation, and local daytime only QRV for safety reasons.  There is no recent history of sea lions on White Rock, but if one is encountered - even if sighted on White Rock before landing, everything will be QRT.

Tentatively,
we are looking at sometime between September 15th and October 15th, but this will also be Ocean Condx and WX dependent with probably zero to little advance notice.  At current solar low SFI=67 levels, predicted propagation from NA-187 to EU is horrible and very limited, with not much promise of improvement for some time:

The Charter Boat Captain previously contacted back in March will not be available for two more weeks.  When he returns, we will resume logistical discussions.  A webpage with more information will be forthcoming after that.

************************************************************************************************
At long last, I finally received an email with the "Green Light" from a primary Government Agency needed to activate IOTA NA-187 (subject to certain restrictions).  The email has now been forwarded to the final decision making entity in the process.

Access to NA-187 is forbidden during the seabird nesting period of March through August, so I am looking at a SEPT-OCT time period if all goes well.

Due to the restrictions and poor solar cycle condx from the (Real) West Coast NA especially to EU via the Polar Path, this presents various challenges.  My "ATNi FIRST" PROTOCOL Operating Strategy will be absolutely critical to insure as many serious IOTA Chasers on the current 2019 IOTA Honour Role & Annual Listing in need of ONE QSO for credit with NA-187 have a possibility to make it into the log.  The details are in 7 LANGUAGES at:
