In addition to the standard mode operations, good news for 2 Meter EME enthusiasts. Lee, WW2DX, is planning 2M EME from Sable Island. Sable Island is extremely rare on EME. For more details on this EME activity, check the BAND PLAN posted on the CY0S website. Many know Lee for his successful operations from various DX locations, including the 2016 and 2019 CY9C St Paul DXpeditions. Pat N2IEN, well known for SAT operations from various DX locations, will provide the opportunity to work CY0S via SAT. The team is excited about the DXpedition this Fall season. Parks Canada has us scheduled for the October/November time frame. Operational requirements on Sable has delayed Parks Canada from being able to determine the exact dates. The team is anxiously awaiting those dates. Meanwhile, the team is working hard on antenna planning and layout, equipment and logistics. Most of the team will be flying into Halifax, Nova Scotia. Dan/W4DKS and Murray/WA4DAN will be driving to Halifax with a large van full of gear. Pre-DXpedition expenses are significant. We have been informed by both Sable Aviation and Vision Air Services that fuel surcharges will be required. Currently aviation fuel in Halifax is $9.05 for the US gallon equivalent. Additional support will be very helpful and can be made via the CY0S DXpedition website at: https://www.cy0s.com Stand by for the exact DXpedition dates soon! 73, Murray WA4DAN 2022 Sable Island DXpedition Team Leader E5, SOUTH COOK ISLANDS.

ZL9, NEW ZEALAND SUB-ANTARCTIC ISLANDS (Doesn't Sound Good!). John, VK3YP, posted the following on June 21st: Future DXpeditions to ZL9 will not be possible under (as of 2016) Conservation Management Strategy for NZ Sub- Antarctic Islands. We submitted a detailed application for a permit to conduct a DXpedition to ZL9 in Dec 2022 or 2023. Even though a permit was issued in 2012 for ZL9HR - Under the new NZ Sub-Antarctic Islands 2016 conservation management strategy radio oper- ations involving erection of structures (antennas) / staying on the island to operate - these activities are no longer permitted. In summary only research activities and day trip tourist activities are permitted.
