WARNING 7-Sept: The following (translated) appears on the Radio Club de Chile (CE3AA) webpage:

On September 6, 2016, Radio Club of Chile, represented by its President Dr. Galdino Besomi, Vice President and Don Jose Tijoux, have held a meeting with Admiral Don Arturo Undurraga Contra Chief of the First Naval Zone, whose outcome can inform the Chilean amateur radio community and interested foreigners in the expedition to Isla San Felix that has been advertised in various DX news sites and and led by Mr. Felipe Gutierrez CE5WQO for which would have been extended authorization of landing on the island showing off documents that accredits:

That the Navy of Chile considers that such documents are false.
The Navy has initiated legal action in this regard.
It is therefore evident that the advertised DXpediton is false and that besides the alleged widespread authorization by SUBTEL for this purpose and circulating in different media it would also be false.
UPDATE by CE5WQO 30-August: After my experience in CE0Z Juan Fernandez Isl 2014 as CE0Z/CE5WQO I decided to make all efforts to put another Chilean most wanted ON AIR, so San Félix Isl is on my mind.

A few months ago I announced information of my next activity to CE0X San Félix Isl. The original idea was a small team of three operators, but after receive many e-mails from different stations around the world proposing the idea of forming a large Team, I have been in contact with some US stations to make this possible.

After hard work in The Chilean Ministry of Telecommunication and The Navy, authorizations and permissions are granted – for now just need to take care of the logistical details to put this entity on air.

Then came a team of world-renowned operators, with whom I worked with. Today, the relations with the team are broken, for a lack of trust, and the lack of support in logistics since most of the work I’ve done myself, and is easy to receive news at the other side of the desk, while one who makes efforts and spends money for this project it is one, guess who…

I decided to announce that the team will be only for three operators: Dima RA9USU on CW, other operator for Digital/CW, and me on SSB.

We will cover from 160 – 6 mts in SSB CW RTTY.

I need to confirm that this entity will be on air in 2017, with or without a large team, and the exact date is still not defined.

My efforts will be for the chance that I have to put this entity on air, to bring a new entity to many Hams in the world, 14 years have passed since the last dxpedition, and will pass another 14 years, because this opportunity must not be wasted, it is very difficult to get these permits especially for foreigners.

The second press release will include information with more details.

Thanks to all the friends that has send support and friendship to make this project happen.

Felipe Gutiérrez
The DXpedition to San Felix Island is now scheduled in April 2017.

What began as a 3 man effort earlier this summer has now become a 10 man effort, and all the operators are experienced DXpedition operators.

6m EME could be included.
