Malpelo Island Dxpedition HK0NA Latest News

November 29/2011


Recently three US members (K4UEE, N4GRN and W6IZT) of the Malpelo 2012
DXpedition flew to Cartagena, Colombia and met with six of their Colombian
counterparts. The purpose of the two day meeting was to make some critical
decisions about the upcoming DXpedition to Malpelo Island. Also, checklists
and inventories were finalized and all team members' responsibilities were

Since it is highly unlikely that the various Colombian authorities will
permit another DXpedition to Malpelo anytime soon; a decision was made to
extend the DXpedition to 16-17 days from the previous 12-14 day plan. The
approximate dates of operations will be January 21, 2012 through February
5/6, 2012.
Four team members will travel with all equipment, radios, antennas and
infrastructure to Malpelo in early January. They will be transported by the
Colombian Navy. They will arrive about two weeks prior to the rest of the
Team and will set up camp, the two operating sites, radios and antennas.
They will spend about 30 days on the island. This will allow the rest of the
team to begin radio operations immediately upon arrival by chartered vessel.

As mentioned there will be two operating sites, each with a complete
complement of antennas and radios with amplifiers. The first operating site
will be co-located with the Colombian marine's camp on the east side of the
island. It is clear to East Coast USA, EU and Africa. In order to have a
clear shot at JA/Asia, the Pacific region and W6/W7; the second operating
site will be located near the top of the highest mountain peak on the
island. However, to lessen the physical risks to the team members, the
operating site will be located on platforms situated below the actual peak.
Still, it will be a 45 minute uphill climb to reach the platforms. The
antennas for that site will be on the top of the mountain peak. At times,
there will be as many as nine stations QRV with the capability of dual mode
operations on all bands.

Safety of the team is paramount. We will be installing a winch system to
hoist team members and all of our equipment from our chartered ship's Zodiac
onto the island. From there, manpower will carry the equipment the 300
meters straight uphill to the marine camp. The trail to the elevated
operating site is extremely dangerous. We will utilize harnesses and safety
ropes to minimize the risks. This is going to be a difficult and expensive
DXpedition. Every effort will be made to maximize QSOs while protecting the
safety of the team members. It is a delicate balance.

Your financial support is necessary and gratefully accepted. Contributions

We plan periodic press releases with information of interest. Also, watch
the website for breaking news.
