admission occurs.
Equipment has been procured and is being staged for rapid delivery to  Juba,
the new capital of Southern Sudan.  Team  members  have  applied  for  their
visas and we are awaiting them now.
We have  held  several  successful  meetings  with  representatives  of  the

for the purpose of this DXpedition. The Government of South  Sudan  is  very
supportive of our plans to visit Juba and to help them celebrate  the  birth

We plan to soon be in the new capital of Juba and to be ready to  start  our
DXpedition after admission by the UN. We will have  18  operators  operating
