Press release #5
An updated most wanted list has been published on Clublog. It now shows Saint Brandon as the 27th most wanted entity worldwide (#19 NA, #17 SA, #33 AS, #28 OC, #34 AF, #48 EU). This statistics clearly confirms the relevance of our dxpedition, we knew the demand to be high more than 10 years after 3B7C.
Same as with our previous projects, we know a flawless preparation is the key of the success. We are now working carefully on propagation forecast. Of course our experience of this area is a big advantage, we know some specifics tips, possible openings, etc. This forecasts will drive our operations from the first to the very last day, giving priority to the area with the shortest and most difficult conditions.
We would like to thanks our pilot team: Bjorn ON9CFG, Paul N6PSE, Javi LU5FF, Joe JJ3PRT, and our “chief pilot” Michel F6AGM (ex-FM5CD). Please share your experience and all interesting information with your local pilot during the expedition. We will be in touch with them on a daily basis thanks to our satellite phone.
The pilots will NOT have access to the logs ! Questions related to your QSOs should be submitted to our QSL manager through the online form on our website. Do not expect answer until we are back in France.
We would like to take advantage of this communication to wish good luck to our 3Y0Z friends on the way to Bouvet.
