#3rd Most Wanted IOTA Group in South America
 - Last operation in 1992! -

Operators Renner PY7RP and Marenga PU0FDN will be active as PY0R/PY7RP and PU0R/PU0FDN from Atol das Rocas (SA-038) between November 15-21st.

This is a rare IOTA DXpedition, and also valid for DXCC for ARRL awards as PY0F. The last operation was in 1992, and it is now in 3rd place in the most wanted IOTA groups in SA.

The actual dates are only estimated since the operation depends on sea
conditions. Operations will not be full-time due to other activities during their stay.

As the demand is pretty high, their efforts will be to provide the 1st QSO to as many stations as they can. To achieve that, they will focus on 40m, 20m and 15m, and only one QSO with each station will be confirmed by a QSL card.

Clublog.org will manage the OQRS as soon as the DXpedition finishes, and the "Leadership score board" feature will not be available for the same reason above.

Due to electrical power limitations, they will run low power (100w) from an IC7000 and mono-band verticals over the salt-water.

Due to high costs involved, donations are much appreciated.

QSL via direct or OQRS/Clublog (No Bureau cards).
