3B7C ---> The  Five Star  DXers Association  (FSDXA) 3B7C  expedition to  St.
Brandon (AF-015) [425DXN 806] is still on course for September 2007. The plan
is to be  QRV from the  7th to the  24th, ensuring two  full weeks and  three
weekends of activity. The team is  aware that a Polish expedition to  Agalega
has been announced for April 2007,  but considers that  demand for this  rare
one is such that a  large-scale operation (12  stations) is fully  justified.
