    is two FT-817s and an Arrow dual band yagi. I'll favor the SSB birds
    usually higher in the passband, but will also try FM if they do not get
    too busy. Satellite logging is by paper so may not get loaded to LoTW
    until the week after I return to the USA." Weekends may be limited since
    he will be concentrating on the low(er) bands and contests. QSL via KV1J,

    PACIFIC (DXPEDITION) TOUR ALMOST DID NOT HAPPENED (Update). Heli, DD0VR,
    (along with XYL Bigi, DE3BWR) informed OPDX on Monday that their Fiji
    "DXpedition ends here." Heli explains that after two visits to the Fiji
    Customs Bureau, and having endless discussions, the couple was told that
    they would have to pay three times 1540 Fijian dollars (700 USDs) for
    their transmitters & amp in order to take their equipment into the three
    islands they planned to operate from (Fiji, Samoa and Tonga). So Heli/
    DD0VR and XYL Bigi/DE3BWR then decided to make their trip a "normal
    holiday" and pick-up their equipment on the way back to Germany. At
    this point, they were very disappointed. However, on Wednesday, thanks
    from some help by Tevita Navila (Telecommunications Authority of Fiji),
    Tony/3D2AG and Bernie/W3UR of The Daily DX, Heli was able to retrieve
    his equipment and was able to be active as 3D2VR from Fiji for a few days.
    By the time you read this, Heli (along with his XYL) will be heading
    to Samoa and should be active as 5W0VR from Samoa sometime between Sep-
    tember 9-16th. Activity will be on various HF bands and modes. QSL via
    DD0VR. Next stop will be Tonga, Heli will be signing as A35JY between
    September 16-21st.

    PJ4, BONAIRE (Reminder). Randy, K5SL, should now be active as PJ4/K5SL
    from Bonaire (SA-006) until September 14th. Activity will be on 40/30/
    20/17 meters using mainly CW, but possibly some 17 meters SSB. QSL via
    his home callsign.

    "T33T #Banaba has been postponed to next year. I will do my best to 3Y0I.
    I think the details will be announced around October."

    S79GJ SEYCHELLES DXPEDITION (Update). Lance, W7GJ, will be active as S79GJ
    from La Digue Island (AF-024, WW Loc. LI75vp), Seychelles, between September
    20th and October 5th. Lance informs OPDX this past week of the following:
    "All the equipment has been set up and checked and then packed up to go
    on the plane with me to S79. This is primarily a 6m EME DXpedition, but
    I have packed a 20m dipole and may also get on 20m FT8 during the first
    few days of October. Full details are on my website:
    http://www.bigskyspaces.com/w7gj/Seychelles 2019.htm
    Although the CP1GJ 6m EME DXpedition in May was a big success, I am
    especially excited about S79GJ because nobody from NA has ever contacted
    S79 before on 6m. This is especially well suited to NA horizon-only
    stations during their moonrise.... GL and VY 73, Lance"
    QSL via his home callsign direct.
