CY0 DXpedition – Postponed
Unfortunately, we had to postpone the Sable Island CY0 DXpedition due to the landing area on the island being under water. A winter storm with 20+ foot swells pushed water onto the sand "runway" on Wednesday evening. Al Wilson, the OIC on Sable, made an assessment of the landing area Thursday. Ron and I talked with Al and there was no possibility of a flight to the island in the next five days. After that, it would depend on how quickly the water would drain from the landing area and if any other storms affect the island. At that point, we decided to postpone the DXpedition.
Needless to say, we are extremely disappointed that we have had to postpone the DXpedition. We have learned first-hand there is really no
season of the year that is ideal for flights to Sable. Late yesterday morning, we met with Ted of Maritime Air. Ted advised it has been the worst year he has experienced as far as scheduling flights to Sable. Maritime Air provides logistical flight services to Environment Canada on the island.
Even though we are disappointed, we are not defeated. Maritime Air allowed us to store our equipment to help facilitate our next attempt. We are
discussing two options with the Sable Island station.
We appreciate your interest in the DXpedition. We have received a lot of encouragement from DX’ers around the world. Continue to check the
DXpedition website for updates.
Like so many of you I was hoping to get the DXPediton in the log… Hopefully they will be back with good WX in the near future
Thanks for trying guys…
