This coastal island of Cyprus (AS-004) has not been activ- ated (as far as they know) since the previous expedition of the CARS there in July 2001, so there should be quite a few island chasers that are in need of this one. The group consists of George/5B4KH, Spyros/5B4MF, Paris/5B4XF, Nestoras/5B4AHZ, Andreas/5B8AP, Cliff/SV1JG and possibly also Marios/5B4WN and Stavros/5B4AFM.

The group hopes to land on the island on the morning of Friday, July 27th, and hopes to be on the air early in the afternoon.

Operations will cease shortly after the end of the IOTA contest on Sunday, July 29th. There will be 2 stations active, one with a linear amplifier. Antennas include a 5-band Spiderbeam, a TA33Jr tribander and HF2V and R7000 verticals. Operation will take place with the 5B4NC/P callsign outside the contest and with the callsign C4MG during the IOTA contest - please update your contest logging software.

NA-231. (Operation ABORTED!) Cezar/VE3LYC reports, "Hi Guys, I am heartbroken to announce that our attempt to activate East Pen Island had to be aborted. Ken/G3OCA and I have arrived in Ft. Severn, northern Ontario, based on a long series of telephone and E-mail communications with the local community here, who at no point in time provided an indication that this operation should be cancelled. For the past four days we have been on a roller-coaster, with the local community going back and forth between being ready to provide assistance and withdrawing it. On Thursday, July 19th, after intense negotiations, a team of four experienced guides/ hunters was proposed and gathered by the local counsel.

Although this increased substantially the cost of our ex- pedition, we agreed to it, having travelled so far. Late evening, however, two of the guides dropped out, which left no opportunity for other sufficiently skilled guides to take their place. It has to be said that numerous local people have reported recently an unusual number of polar bears on the shore for this time of the year - polar bears are supposed to come to short sometimes after mid-August.

Last August aerial survey of East Pen Island reported 40 polar bears there. Locals belive that with such an intense recent activity their number is larger this year. Besides this danger, colonies of walruses have been reported both on the shore and on the island, these animals having cubs right now and therefore being extremely protective - constituting thus a serious danger in crossing to the island in a small boat. In view of the above, it was clearly impossible to continue with our attempt.... 73, Cezar (VE3LYC) and Ken (G3OCA)"

SA-051. Members of the Association of Radioamateurs of Venezuela are organizing an IOTA DXpedition to Las Aves de Sotavento Archipelago in August to celebrate 2007 Venezuelan Navy Day. Their activity will be on CW and SSB on HF and on VHF FM. QSL via DL3AMA.

KH3, JOHNSTON ISLAND
Skipper of the USSV Dharma, Susan Meckley, W7KFI, who was expected to depart sometime last week for Johnston Island (OC-023, USI OI-006), has once again postponed her departure. Susan informs OPDX (as she apologizes to everyone) that it seems to look "like one hell of a hurricane season...." heading her way from the Mexican area. She states, "If there is a two week lull I will depart for KH3, but it looks like I am stuck in Honolulu till end of the season. In any event, propagation is much better in November than in July/August anyway. I guess the tooth ache that brought me back to Honolulu was good after all...." She also mentions that she does not want to get stuck on an island that has a 5 ft. elevation during a hurricane storm surge and everything goes underwater.

LIGHTHOUSE ACTIVITY
The Greater Norwalk Amatuer Radio Club (GNARC) will be sponsoring a DXpedition to activate Sheffield Island Lighthouse for International Lighthouse Weekend (ILLW), August 18-19th.
