T2     - The C21A DXpedition to  Nauru  [425DXN  1049]  has  been  postponed
         until next year, as the airline "could  not  guarantee  the  flight
         due to internal problems". A new destination has been arranged  and
         now "most of the same team"  (namely  K4ZLE,  NL8F,  VK4AN,  VK4FW,
         VK4NEF and W5SL) will be active as T2T from  Tuvalu  (OC-015)  from
         11 November to 8 December. They will  operate  SSB,  CW,  RTTY  and
         PSK31 on 160-6 metres with 3-4 stations. QSL  via  VK4FW.  The  log
         will be uploaded  to  LoTW  and  eQSL  within  12  months.  Further
         information can be found at http://t2t.pacific-dxers.com/
T32    - The T32C expedition to Christmas Island "has  hit  some  logistical
         problems", G3XTT reported on 16 September. The container "with  its
         6 tonnes of kit got as far as T30 (Tarawa), but onward shipping  to
         T32 has proved impossible, despite our best  efforts  and  promises
         from those involved in 3D2, T30 and T32. The ship that was  due  to
         bring our container from Tarawa has broken down and is being  towed
         to Fiji for repairs".
         The team will go ahead anyway. They will have  "ten FT-450D radios,
         which we  will  hand carry to T32, along  with  several lightweight
         linears. We will also take enough hardware to set  up verticals and
         vertical  arrays  for  all  bands  160 through 10.  It may even  be
         possible  to run multiple stations on some bands, though not to the
         extent  that we had previously planned. All our computer  equipment
         was to be hand-carried in any case, so daily log updates to ClubLog
         will be unaffected.  Unfortunately,  unless our container makes  an
         unlikely  late  arrival  on  the  island,  6m  EME  will have to be
         abandoned,  and we will not have the 4-square arrays for 30 and 40.
         But we will  do our best to set up phased systems or other  antenna
         Configurations  to  achieve gain,  especially towards  Europe where
         will  continue  to focus our efforts".
         The  expedition dates (28  September-26  October)  are  unaffected,
         "but  we cannot  realistically expect  to have stations running  on
         nine  bands by the first weekend, though we will aim to be on  some
         bands,  at least. As  we will not have everything pre-kitted, there
         will  be  a lot of building and configuration work to  do  once  we
         arrive  at Christmas".
         Check the expedition's website (www.t32c.com) for  updates  on  the
         latest happenings and for  interacting  with  the  team  once  they
         start operations - "your feedback will be especially  important  so
         that we can maximise every band opening".
