Update September 18, 2023: Information from the PR0T team:

The team will stay in place for about 3 days during the change crew of the Brazilian Navy that resides on the island. We will be on the air from 10 to 40m. 80 and 160m only if local conditions allow. Due to the limited time of the dxpedition, we will use vertical multiband antennas. The operation will be held with 3 operators on land for CW/SSB and 9 remote operators for FT-8.
Remote operators - PY4AZ, PY8WW, PY7RP, PY5EG, PY2XB, PY5KD, PY2WAS.

In the Atlantic Ocean lies the Brazilian archipelago of Trindade e Martim Vaz (Arquipélago de Trindade e Martim Vaz), which consists of 5 islands of volcanic origin. They belong to the state of Espiritu Santo and are officially considered uninhabited, but are famous for their pristine nature and diverse wildlife. Tourists come here to find the treasure that, according to legend, was once hidden here by a famous pirate named Benito Bonito.

PY1ZV Fábio, PT2IC Stephano and PY6RT Beto will be QRV as PR0T from Trinidade island in November 2023. The exact dates depend on the Brazilian Navy.

They will be QRV for short period of 3 or 4 days. The expedition will operate with two stations, one SSB and one CW, both with vertical antennas, and one station on FT8, remotely operated by PY2XB Fred, PY2WAS Alex, PY4AZ Alex, PY5EG Atilano, PY5KD Luciano, PY6TS Ramon, PY7RP Renner, PY8WW Renato and PC3T Alex.

The trip and the operation on the island has received wide support from the Brazilian Navy – they will also transport colleagues and their equipment onto the ship. Once on the island, the team will stay at the facilities also maintained by Marines on the island. LABRE Nacional also has support through its board of directors and the particular efforts of President Marcone Cerqueira PY6MV.
