Update November 20: Just an update to let you know that this has not slipped through the cracks! Because of delays in the publishing of dates and times for flight schedules by Air Tahiti, I have not yet been able to book any new tickets or finalize the exact dates of operation. I hope they will be able to let me book the new tickets by the end of December.

HOWEVER, for planning purposes, I wanted to let you know that, at this time, a tentative operation schedule has been uploaded to my website

If flights coincide with these plans, I would hope to be active from the Austral Islands as FO/W7GJ from October 16 through October 23, and from the Marquesas Islands as TX7MB from October 27 to November 4. I hope to be able to provide a more definite schedule by the end of next month. The individual DXpedition webpages (on my website) will be updated when the final flights are booked.

I can't wait to activate both of these DXCC in French Polynesia for the first time on 6m EME I look forward to working many single yagi stations when the moon is near your horizon! Thanks for your continued patience and support!

Update June 30: Because of the ongoing COVID 19 pandemic, we regret that the W7GJ 6m EME DXpedition to FO/A and FO/M and the KB7Q 2m EME DXpedition to FO/M must be delayed until 2021.

Lodging reservations already have been changed, and we are in the process of revising the licensing and equipment importation authorizations.

The APPROXIMATE dates for the new DXpeditions are:

FO/A (6m only) - October 15-24, 2021
FO/M (TX7MB on 2m and 6m) - October 26-November 4, 2021

Exact dates and operating schedules will be posted on my website after September 2020, when airline reservation dates for 2021 become available:

We are looking forward to contacting you and hope that this unfortunate delay provides you with any extra time you may need to improve your station to get ready for the FO DXpedition!

GL and VY 73, Lance

Prior to his activity from Marquesas Is. as TX7MB, Lance will be QRV on 6m EME from Rimarta Island (Austral Islands) from October 10 to November 2.

Degradation during the solo FO/A operation is slightly higher than optimum, but previous trips have demonstrated that those days should still be productive. In addition, the negative horizon in FO/A should provide good common moon windows just about everywhere, and some very low ground gain lobes when the moon is at or just below the horizon. I hope to be able to be QRV for 8 full moon passes. If I can stay awake during the late afternoons, I hope to be QRV for TEP in the event there is any such propagation that early in the year. The QTH in the Austral Islands looks like it may be situated favorably for TEP.
