  1. FROM QRZ.com: 19-10-2017 last news: weather forecast is bad: rain and strong winds.

    TM0TI is postponed

    This EU156 project depend of weather conditions before and during the exped. We have to bring our electricity, water, food, tents, radio equipment. No accomodations on the island. If there is rainy days before the exped, we’ll have to cross 2 rivers with strong currents, making it too difficult to cross with heavy material.

    We’ll be QRV from IOTA EU-148 Fort Brescou island as TM5BI

    The team know pretty well Tombelaine island. we already made 1 to 4 trips there. Access to the island is at low tide.We have to carry all equipment by foot during 3500 meters, sometime in mudd, quicksand or rivers with up to 1 meter of water. access to the top of Tombelaine is not permit during breeds season (March to August). Please, understand that we’ll not look for a “slot hunt exped”, and we want to optimize the DX contacts, so time to time, we’ll specially call “outside EU pse” to give a chance.
