30/07/2013: For the first time the lighthouse on Ilheus Formigas (EU-003, DIP AZ-013, WW Loc. HM77OG) will be activated using the callsign CR2F. It is a difficult and expensive operation because the chartered vessel ANTARES, which sails the team and material from Vila do Porto, Santa Maria island to Formigas and back, will stay all times anchored nearby the Ilheus Formigas to ensure a quick evacuation of the team and equipment in case of sudden weather changes. Station and accommodation will be within the lighthouse so that the operation also counts for DFP NEW ONE!, ARLHS AZO-001, TWLHD WLH CU-002, WLOTA 4293 and is Admiralty reference D2638. For WorldWide Flora and Fauna, this activation counts for the Reserva Natural do Ilhote das Formigas (WWFF CTFF-039). As the landing on Ilheus Formigas is very difficult and as the antenna erection around the lighthouse can only be effected at WX with low winds and waves, date can vary by a couple of days. Tentaive dates are +/- 30-31 July 2013. All depends on the WX. Team members will be Leonel CU3EJ, Antonio CU8AS, Siggi DL2HYH and Hermann HB9CRV/CT3FN. QSL via HB9CRV, LoTW and bureau are OK. Please monitor www.to-mk.com/ct3fn/ for updated information. [DE0MST / HB9CRV - CT3FN]

Hello IOTA Chasers, I have now finished mailing all direct requests received to date for YB8P. There are about 10 or so problematic NIL that requires further checking and those who requested multiple calls (other YB cards) in the same envelope that need extra processing time. I have also finished mailing all OC 208 Donors, USA and EU should have received their cards directly from me. JA Donors will get them from Shu San JN6RZM. I have also now received logs for YB9WZJ/p and YB0MWM/9 from Doom Island OC-239. I have also some QSL cards and can confirm with QSL cards if you are in the log. Please do not send me your SASE if you did not work them. Thank you to all who have supported YB8P. Steve, W2FB
