H4     - "As  you  are  all   aware  the  H44IOTA  DXpedition  has  suffered
         significant  delays  due  to   weather    conditions    and    boat
         maintenance", Penny Goldfinch posted on  the  expedition's  website
         on 19 June, and "such delays have taken their toll  on  the  team".
         Dom SQ9KWW, Tom WL7HP and Maggie H44MK are unable to  continue  the
         journey, and "consequently we will now have to omit the  activation
         of OC-285". Ralph (H44RK) and Penny will leave Honiara on  21  June
         and anticipate being  active  from  Roderick  Bay  in  the  Florida

         he  plans  to  be  QRV  "several  hours  a  day,   determined    by
         propagation". The  duration  and  timing  of  this  and  all  other
