3Y0X --->  According to  the latest  Status Report  and Summary  of the  3Y0X
DXpedition to Peter I (www.peterone.com), the team will fly from Punta Arenas
to King George Island on 2  February, and will board  the "Chinook" and  sail
for Peter I the same day.  Arrival is scheduled for approximately 6  February
and the team will have 16 days at the island (weather will dictate when  they
land and will influence their departure  date). 3Y0X will have nine  complete
ICOM Pro III / Alpha 99 HF stations plus multiple antennas. There will be two
operating sites separated by  approximately 1000 feet  to allow operation  on
SSB and CW/digital on the same  band at the same time. They  also plan to  be
QRV on 6m, 2m and 70cm  EME. Logs, pictures and  hopefully short video  clips
will be available on-line. The QSL  manager will be N2OO. Logs will  uploaded
to LOTW in early 2007.

temporary amateur radio licence. This licence  is free and will be  available

NA-178 ---> Numerous discussions have continued about the actual QRV location
and antennas to be used on South East Farallon Island (NA-178) [425DXN  762],
because of the many  factors involved related  to habitat sensitivity.  Rick,
K6VVA says that he is tentatively looking at a possible QRV around either 1-3
February or  the  week  of  13  February  2006,  but  everything  is  weather
dependent. Rick estimates a 75% CW and 25% SSB operation, and is looking  for
an experienced second operator (ability to be ready to go with only 24  hours
notice  is  a  must).  Further  information  and  updates  are  available  at
