We are very pleased to announce the Amateur Radio community at large and the IOTA chasers in particular that after numerous years of discussions and negotiations, the Department of Conservation (DoC) of New Zealand has exceptionally issued an island Entry Permit and a one-off Concession Permit for an amateur radio operation from Antipodes Island to take place between January 7 and 11, 2016. The team is composed of Cezar (VE3LYC), Craig (VK5CE), Stan (SQ8X), and Bob (KD1CT).
Based on discussions with the DXCC Management, we have been informed that in view of the landing and operation permit issued to our group, they will include Antipodes Is. in ZL9, and re-name this entity ‘New Zealand Sub-Antarctic Islands’. Their announcement will follow shortly.
ClubLog Most Wanted DXCC listing ranks ZL9 as #37 at Mixt and SSB. Consequently, besides the possibility to log OC-286 for a new IOTA group, which is and will remain the main purpose of this operation, we will give many a chance to log their first contact with ZL9, or perhaps add a few bands to their DXCC Challenge.
The cost of this operation will exceed $50,000, and the team is looking for financial support from groups and individuals who can help us offset some expenses. Donations are welcome via paypal to email@example.com. More information about this project will be available on the expedition website, which is under construction and should be ready shortly.
