From The KP1-5 project
RE: K1N Navassa Island DXpedition

The KP1-5 Project and the U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service have been working together on preparations for our joint 14 day visit to Navassa Island NWR.  Although the actual dates may still vary, it now appears we will begin transport to the Island during the last week of January 2015.

Our container of equipment and supplies will depart late in December enroute to our helicopter staging area.  All of our equipment is being assembled, tested and packed.

We have visited and contracted with the largest helicopter operations group in the Caribbean to transfer personnel and equipment to the island.  Our window of opportunity, dictated by USFWS, is during the period of least bird nesting.  But it is also the time of the most treacherous seas, making a safe sea landing of all our equipment and people all but impossible.  The famous “ladder” used to access the island at Lulu Bay was removed when the U.S. Coast Guard turned administration over to the U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service.  For safety reasons, the USFWS uses helicopter transport to the island and we will too.  Consequently, and as one might expect, the costs of this DXpedition are quite high.  The team has contributed approximately half of the total cost.  Foundations such as NCDXF and INDEXA have been very generous, as have a number of DX Clubs and individuals, and for this generosity, we are deeply grateful!

The particulars of this DXpedition require more “up front” payments than most DXpeditions and we have a “cash flow timing” situation that needs to be addressed.  The helicopter contractual agreement requires all charter costs to be paid prior to the conclusion of the project.  Many older hams need a mode or band fill from Navassa, but an entire generation has grown up without Navassa being on the air.  Hence, it has risen to the #1 Most Wanted on the ClubLog list.  If you need Navassa for an all-time new one (ATNO), or for a particular band or mode, we could use your financial help.  If you plan to help support the DXpedition, we ask that you do so now, not later.

We have an excellent team of fifteen operators who will be manning eight stations 24 hours/day, dedicated to giving out as many contacts as possible over the two week period.

Your generous financial gift will help insure a most successful DXpedition for all!

Please visit for details.

[UPDATE]: A major Dxpedition to Navassa Island, 1# Most Wanted DXCC, will take place in January 2015 by the KP1-5 Project. The call will be K1N!

Second Press Release:

From The KP1-5 project
RE: Navassa Island (KP1) Operation
Dated: 22 October 2014

The U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service has notified the KP1-5 Project that they will be the team to activate Navassa Island (KP1) in January 2015.

The DXpedition will be a maximum of fourteen days.  The exact dates in January will be determined by USFWS mission requirements and weather windows.

Our experienced team of fifteen is complete and is ready for the challenge.  The weeks ahead will be extremely busy as the team has less than 90 days before the DXpedition comes on the air.

January is the month of minimum bird nesting activity and this is the primary reason USFWS is asking that the operation be completed during that month.  However, the weather is unpredictable in January and because Navassa is surrounded by cliffs, this may preclude a safe landing by boat.  For safety reasons and in order to maximize our time on the Island and on the air, a helicopter operation is planned.  Navassa is over 100 miles (160 km) from the nearest helicopter staging point and as many as ten round trips will be required at the beginning and end of the operation.  Obviously, this means that there will be a significant cost for activating this #1 ranked DXCC entity.

In the next few weeks, we be working with USFWS and as details firm up, we will issue periodic press releases.  Check our webpage, the KP1-5 Project for more details of the operation and how you may financially support this DXpedition.

The KP1-5 Project team has committed to fund 50% of the total costs.  We are hopeful the DX community will fund the remainder.

Bob Allphin, K4UEE, President
Glenn Johnson, WØGJ, Vice-president

RE: Navassa Island (KP1) Operation

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.

Please visit our website for up to date information.

Robert N7XR/VQ9XR comenta:
Un pirata ha estado utilizando mi indicativo en 17mts/Rtty, mientras yo operaba en otra banda. Si no estás en el log probablemente te hayan engañado.

El log online en Clublog de Robert como VQ9XR se ha reducido a 138 contactos cuando tenía varios miles. Esperemos que se resuelva el problema para poder comprobar los contactos antes de enviar las Qsl y ver que no hemos sido engañados.
