>From The Daily DX:

The upcoming 3C0R DXpedition to Annobon Island is currently on
schedule.  The Spanish operators expect to leave Alicante Airport
Sunday at 04:30Z and should be on Sao Tome (S9) late that night.
Supplies such as generators, fuel, food and some hardware arrived
safely on the island last week.  The group will leave Sao Tome on
Monday September 13th.  The group will have four stations and will be
active on CW, SSB and RTTY.  Propagation forecast charts for the
following areas have been given to the operators: USA West-Mid-East
Coast, Caribbean, South America, Africa, West-Central-Eastern Europe,
Mid Asia, Japan, Alaska, Hawaii, South Pacific and Australia.  The
following suggested frequencies were given:

CW :  1833, 3505, 7005, 10105, 14025, 18075, 21025, 24895, 28025
SSB : 3799, 7065, 14195, 18135, 21295, 24945, 28395
RTTY: 14085, 21085

They will have 6 meters with them and they suggest trying 50110.  All
antennas were donated by Cushcraft, thanks to EA3NY at Bit Radio.
They will be testing the new MA5B during the operation.  No on-line
log checking will take place while the group is on the island, however
afterwards they will post the logs.  A Web page has been set up at  QSL via EA5FVY, Angel
Garcia Mendoza, P.O. Box 3045, 03080 Alicante, Spain.
