Hej

W8S Swains Island –update December 27
Everything is on schedule for our Swains DXpedition. Last month Martin PA4WM en Gerben PG5M have been working on the antennas
for Swains. After some small design changes,
the antennas are ready now (thanks to Dado E74AW for helping with the 160m antenna).
We also have collected a lot of other equipment and tools.
We were in doubt if everything would fit in the 3 boxes we created especially for this adventure.
This morning we started packing all the equipment.
At the end of the afternoon we were ready.
Luckily everything fitted in the boxes: 14 RX/TX antennas, 800 meters of coax-cable, 2.4 KM of radials,
bandpass filters, power supplies and tools were packed in the boxes. https://dx-world.net/w8s-swains-island/

Hej

Ja - og selv dem med små effekter og små antenner burde have en chance her også.

VY 73 og Godt Nytår, til stort set alle.

Swains2020 W8S Breaking News

In close cooperation with Alex Jennings, the representative of Swains Island, we have to decide to postpone our DXpedition to Swains Island until autumn 2020.

In close cooperation with Alex Jennings, the representative of Swains Island, the team has decided to postpone the W8S DXpedition to Swains Island to autumn of 2020.

The reason behind this postponement is the travel restrictions when entering American Samoa, restrictions imposed by the Department of Health of American Samoa as a result of the Corona virus outbreak.

The Department of Health allows non-residents to enter American Samoa only via Hawaii, after a 14 days mandatory quarantine in Hawaii.

For the team this is not a workable situation. It would require extending the holiday time by an additional 2 weeks, re-routing of the flights and purchasing new tickets etc.

Everything is prepared for our DXpedition, and we are eager to go, but unfortunately the Corona virus outbreak is out of our control.

Although this is a disappointment for everyone, the W8S DXpedition is not cancelled, but just postponed for later this year!

You and/or your DX-club made a donation to the Swains DXpedition, which is very much appreciated by the whole team as that helps the team to cover some part of the investment the team already made.

Hej
The W8S Website notes the countdown to the postponed Swains Island
DXpedition is 214 days away. If my math is correct that would be September 21st, of this year.
