Will 3Y0I Happen This Fall?

An unscientific “poll” was conducted at KY6R this morning, and apparently, 3Y0I will happen in 2018.

I’m guessing that if it does, we will hear soon that gear has been shipped – or will be shipping soon. Since its wise to give a month or two to ship such gear to Cape Town (where VK0EK shipped its gear) – shipping in August would mean they could activate in October, November or December this year.

I’ve worked ZS on 40M almost year round – even with SSN = Zero. This summer 40M has been lousy – and I wonder if we are already at the bottom of this cycle – it sure smells like it.

In any case, VOACAP Online does predict half way decent odds that I can work them this year – if they go. I’ll bet if we don’t hear anything in August news wise from this team that 2018 will be very unlikely. I know they are trying to obtain the last $95K in funding – so that will be a big indicator – if they land a set of grants that get them closer – then I would be more confident that this will actually happen.

I do wish them luck – this is one tough nut to crack.
