50/144/432MHz Marquesas EME DXpedition
LATEST NEWS by Lance, W7GJ, dated 2020-06-29:

COVID-19 UPDATE: NEW DATES!!!

Hello!

Because of the ongoing COVID 19 pandemic, we regret that the W7GJ 6m EME DXpedition to FO/A and FO/M and the KB7Q 2m EME DXpedition to FO/M must be delayed until 2021. Lodging reservations already have been changed, and we are in the process of revising the licensing and equipment importation authorizations.

The APPROXIMATE dates for the new DXpeditions are:

FO/A (6m only) - October 15-24, 2021

FO/M (TX7MB on 2m and 6m) - October 26-November 4, 2021

Exact dates and operating schedules will be posted on my website after September 2020, when airline reservation dates for 2021 become available:

We are looking forward to contacting you and hope that this unfortunate delay provides you with any extra time you may need to improve your station to get ready for the FO DXpedition!

GL and VY 73, Lance



NEWS by Lance, W7GJ:

W7GJ and KB7Q will put the Marquesas Islands on multiple bands via the moon this coming fall. The required equipment importation permits and operating licenses are already in hand.

W7GJ will handle the 50 Mhz side of the operations, his detailed information is at:
http://www.bigskyspaces.com/w7gj/Marquesas 2020.htm

KB7Q will concentrate on 2 Meters, but will try to squeeze in an amp and antenna for 70cm also.

More as things come together.
