February 7th. The 3Y0X activity from Peter I Island is expected to take

stations on one band at the same time, in order to take full advantage of
openings. There will be four pilot stations, namely Don Greenbaum/N1DG
(don@..., for North & South America), Klaus Wagner/DL1XX
(dl1xx@..., for pe, Af, Africa & Middle East), Toshi Kusano/JA1ELY
(ja1ely@..., forfihe Pacific Rim & Asia), Lee Jennings/ZL2AL
