OC-278p V73RRC plan


8月初めにNA-233 KL7RRC/Pが終わってSeatleに戻ったYuri/N3QQからNew IOTAであるOC-278pへ行くプランを持っている、ただし極秘でお願いしますとの情報をいただいておりました。来年とばかり思っていましたが、10月第1週に一人で行くようです。



Dear Shu-san,

Yes, it is very short notice, I learned about this boat going to Ujelang 

I kind of worked on slow January-March time frame, but looks like they going to 
Ujelang 1st week of October.

Very tempting to go! I think "one person" expedition is not very effective. On 
another hand it is a good opportunity, say 50/50 chance to make it happen. 

Major problem I'm worried about is no real transportation back to Majuro, Air 
Marshal Islands is only airline in RMI (1 airplane), nick name "Air May-be". 
Most of flights to Enewetak from Majuro canceled because of not enough people 
(need 15 to fly to make it profitable). 

I guess this is why it is still a new-one. Hi Hi. Too many variables!

Well, regarding public iinformation, may be something like this:
Hello friends! 
Potential expedition to activate Ujelang Atoll in Republic of Marshall Islands, 
IOTA new-one, OC-278, Timeframe: You need to be in Majuro September 29th, 
2010. Expect just over 2 weeks total for travel to Enewetak Atoll (OC-087), then 
Ujelang Atoll and back. Plan return tickets for October 15th from Majuro (open 
date is best for return ticket). 

Equipment needed: laptop with your favorite logging program (110V). All 
antennas/radios/PA's will be shipped in advance. Make sure you have all current 
vaccinations for travel in the Pacific.
 No guarantees that we will reach Ujelang Atoll. Travel in RMI is very 
unreliable and long delays possible. 
If you interested to participate and have questions, please contact Yuri Sushkin or call +1(206)529-5168

Thank you very much for your help, Shu!

Chances are very slim, but we better try!

Hello Yuri-san,

I am very surprised to hear your news for V73RRC.
I thought you have this plan next year.

In Japan, it's popular to work everyday.
We can't get holiday for expedition after 3 weeks in JA. Ahaha

May I help you. Is this information OK for publishments?
I anounce to all my friends when you are OK for this info.
Please tell me. Yuri-san
