I received an e-mail from Omar XE1AO, who forwarded a
message from Ismael XE1AY about an upcoming DXpedition
which is planning to also include some satellite

The DXpedition will go to Seora Island, IOTA NA-122, in
grid FK58oe in the southeastern part of the Dominican
Republic.  The island has a maximum elevation of 35 meters
(about 115 feet) above sea level.  The DXpedition will be
on between the 19th and 23rd of November, operating in CW,
SSB, and digital modes on the HF and 6m bands.  There will
also be satellite operating on the SO-50 satellite.  The
radios for the HF/6m work will be Icom IC-7600s.

DXpedition members will include hams from the Dominican
Republic, some US hams, a Puerto Rican ham, and Ismael
XE1AY from Mexico.  The HI2DX QSL manager is M0URX in
the UK.  The group has updated the HI2DX information on


Ismael also mentioned that 4 grids cover the Dominican
Republic (FK48, FK49, FK58, FK59).  Ismael may be able to
travel to some of the other Dominican grids when he is not
on Seora Island for the DXpedition.  Ismael did not mention
what call sign would be used for any activity outside of
the DXpedition.
