KP1   -  On  20  December  the  K1N   team   reported   that  "progress   in
         preparations for a late January landing on Navassa is coming  along
         very well". A container  is  being  shipped  from  Atlanta  to  the
         staging point in the Caribbean. The exact dates for the  expedition
         will be known at the end of December.
         Bob, N2OO is the chief pilot and has organized a worldwide team  to
         collect reports  and  suggestions  from the  verious  target  areas
         (click  on  the  'Our Team' tab  on  the  DXpedition's  website  to
         identify  your pilot and his contact information). Feedback will be
         "prioritized, filtered and/or condensed to  pass  along to the team
         at  least daily". Follow K1N on  Twitter (@navassa2015)  and  check
         out  their Facebook page (www.facebook.com/2015Navassa).
         The cost of the K1N operation is very high  and the  time to  raise
         the  money needed  to fully  fund the  project is  very short.  The
         first half of the nearly $200,000 for the helicopter transportation
         has  been paid. By the end of this year another $95-97,000 must  be
         paid  to the U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service  for  the  transportation
         of  the  required  law  enforcement team.  The  15  operators  have
         contributed $157,500 toward the K1N operation, roughly half of what
         it  will cost. DX  Foundations,  Radio  Clubs, and individuals have
         been "exceptionally generous" in their financial support,  but  the
         K1N team still needs to  raise  "a significant amount of additional
         money" before the operation commences in  late  January.  Click  on
         the 'Donate' tab on www.navassadx.com for detailed  information  on
         how to donate to the K1N Navassa DXpedition.
