Hej
CY9 - St. Paul Island
CY9C is set for July 31. The ops are busy getting everything together
and planning their on-air activity. They are adding FT8, satellite
and 6M EME to their regular HF CW and SSB plans and also plan on 6M
SSB and CW. N0TG, Randy, says upfront costs are significant and
donations are welcome. QSLing will be through Club Log, LoTW, or
direct via WA4DAN. http://cy9c.com/index.html

Hej
Just 29 days until CY9C lands on St. Paul Island. Hopefully,
we are ready to challenge the propagation.
Thanks to all who have supported us financially and will be attempting to work us.
If you would like to donate for the upfront expenses, that would be very helpful and appreciated.
For those who donate, we will AUTOMATICALLY send a QSL card (after confirming you are in the log).
No further action on your part…the QSL will be on the way shortly after the Dxpedtion.
Also, we will be prompt as to uploading to LoTW.

Hej
In less than two weeks the CY9C DXpedition team will arrive in
Dingwall, Nova Scotia, in preparation for the DXpedition to St Paul
Island. The dates for the DXpedition are July 31 - August 8th. All
seven team members are ready with gear packed and weighed to help
facilitate an efficient process of ferrying the gear to the island via
helicopter.

The team is not employing a boat for this DXpedition as all operations
will be from the Northeast Island. There are no longer any facilities
for a boat to be able to dock at the Northeast Island with its
foreboding cliffs and sharp rock formations that encompass the island.
With that being the case, extra care must be taken to transport the
generators and fuel by helicopter.

Pat N2IEN, the helicopter pilot, and helicopter mechanic Barry Smith,
will supervise and oversee the loading of all gear on each flight. An
advance team will fly to the island first in order to erect the
operation tents. While that is taking place, the first of many chopper
trips will commence with all of the other DXpedition gear.

Hopefully the weather will cooperate and we have good VFR flying
weather. On the 2016 CY9C DXpedition we had a number of very stormy
days (and fog) where flights were not possible.

Updates will be provided to the bulletins by Murray WA4DAN or Randy
N0TG as well as at www.cy9c.com

Phil VA3QR will again be giving updates and status reports on his blog
which was very popular in 2016.
