    CY0/VE1AWW ---> Al, CY0/VE1AWW has been QRT from Sable Island since 28  May."A migratory bird (and protected species) was  found  near  my  towers  with injuries suggesting a collision with one of the  towers",  he  says.  "I  am required to take down the towers until an investigation and  policy  can  be developed for tern season (April-August)".

    ST PAUL ISLAND 2012 ---> In their latest press release (25  May),  the  CY9M team reported that on 25 July they "will be  making  their  way  to  Sydney, Nova Scotia, then onwards to the northernmost tip of Cape Breton,  ready  to depart for St Paul island on July 26th". A few of the team plan  to  be  QRV as VE1/callsign from Cape Breton Island (NA-010) prior to  CY9M.  There  are few landing  spots  on  St  Paul,  and  "actual  station  location  will  be determined where we land. From planning discussions, we know  each  proposed location has positives and negatives to certain regions around the  globe  - therefore this is very much an 'on the day'  set-up  at  any  given  landing spot. Now the shipping process begins". Further information,  including  log search, OQRS and details on how contribute, can be found at www.cy9m.com

    XR0ZA ---> A team of  operators  from  Radio  Club  de  Valparaiso  went  to Robinson Crusoe Island (Juan Fernandez) to set up a  radio  and  conduct  an earthquake and tsunami drill. In their spare time they were  QRV  as  XR0ZA. QSL via CE2AA.
