3D2RRR ---> According to Club Log, the 3D2RRR DXpedition to Rotuma made
64,206 contacts with 12,532 unique callsigns between 04:33 UTC on 24 May and

CY0S --- > The 2022 Sable Island DXpedition has launched its new website:
www.cy0s.com (still a work in progress, new information will be added almost
daily). Formal written permission has been granted for a 8-9 day DXpedition
in October-November. "Planning continues to go very well", with K4UEE, W4DKS
and W0GJ taking care of the antenna system. "Even though Sable Island is 42
km long, space is very limited within the Sable Station compound. The Sable
horses, which number over 500, have free run of the island, except for the
area around the Sable Station, which is fenced in. The DXpedition team has a
relatively small footprint to work with. Additionally, no antennas can be
placed on or near the beach as Sable Island is home to tens of thousands of
grey seals".
