    Yuris, YL2GM, has posted on DXCoffee that YL2GM / YL3CW / YL2KA / YL2GD will activate Mt. Athos on May 19-28 as SV2/YL7A!

    Thank you to Bob, K6UJ for the "heads up" on this one.

    More info - as it's confirmed - here: http://callingdx.com/Weekend-DX.htm

    THAT would be an ALL TIME NEW ONE!!!
    Wonder if we will have PROP to the WEST COAST? I haven't heard much EU lately.

    I wonder if Monk Apollo knows about this as he must approve any activity, and in the past, has indicated that no other activity would be approved without him.

    I'll be watching to see how this turns out.

    Wonder if they are bringing BEAMS and KILOWATTS? or are they going to Use Monk Apollos station?

    I hope they string up some wires and work the low bands along with the others. I've never heard the Monk on 30-160M, but according to ClubLog, some of the top ops have SV2/A confirmed on every band from 6-160M. Perhaps they worked some of the guest ops, and maybe there's hope. Gud luck to those needing it for an ATNO.

    Hope this is wrong

    A couple of the SV locals are claiming the Holy Council hasn't approved this operation. It's my understand that without their approval, this operation won't count for DXCC even if they somehow manage to operate from there. Hope these guys are wrong.

    I doubt highly that this is real. It is an April Fools joke in May no doubt
