KP1 Navassa Island?
#1

I picked this up off the 10-10 reflector today. Let's see if it comes to fruition. This one is in the top 5 needed on the DXCC Want List.

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

From The KP1-5 project
RE: Navassa Island (KP1) Operation
August 29, 2014

KP1 Navassa Island

The KP1-5 Project is pleased to announce that the U.S. Fish and Wildlife
Service has agreed to allow an amateur radio operation from Navassa
National Wildlife Refuge (KP1). The operation will occur within the next
18 months and will be coordinated with the USFWS work flow.

Over the past year, the KP1-5 Project has had numerous meetings with
various levels of USFWS management. Throughout our discussions, their
personnel have been courteous, professional and cooperative. We have
been treated with sincere interest and respect and believe that amateur
radio operators may now be viewed as partners and not adversaries.
As with the Desecheo operation in 2009, and in order to be transparent
and fair, the USFWS has requested proposals for the amateur radio
operation from those individuals and groups that have already applied
for a Special Use Permit in the past. The KP1-5 Project will be
submitting a proposal and hoping to be selected as they were for the
very successful Desecheo (K5D) operation.

We wish to thank the USFWS for their decision to allow this operation.
Navassa Island is ranked #2 most-needed DXCC entity by The DX Magazine and #1 by ClubLog.

I worked a guy in MO or maybe NJ a few weeks ago. I had heard him in another QSO regaling a story about he a some other Amateurs activating KP1 in 1978. Sure enough, if he was who he says he was, he was on Navassa in 78. I have no reason to doubt the Contact.

What a story! About having to scale a bluff on the island to gain access, stores of water and food in 55G drums, fun stuff. Great story and QSO.

I was happy to work this guy.

By some chance was it Bob, N2OO? Bob's been on a few of them, he's also an active county hunter. He's given me both new Countrys and Counties!

Might have been him. Unfortunately, it was before I started N1MM logging.
