If it is what I think it is (I was CC'd by a little birdie about a certain possibility a few weeks back), I'll be over-the-moon happy. Combined with Wake, Amsterdam and Heard, if this one happens, it will put me on the Honor Roll!

Well now, are we back to Myanmar once again?


If it is Myanmar, will the ops will blend in with the locals on Points 5 and 7 (see link)?

I would be surprised since another group has been working on it. The KP1-5 Project.

Aloha visiting here on the big Island.

Well I'm going to throw my guess out there and go with Mt. Athos only because Paul recently visited there a few months ago. Since a few of us here are going to Visalia and I know where Paul is staying, perhaps we can hold him in the room and use various tortures until he gives us the info. Perhaps playing Country Music until his head explodes?  Grin

Back in 2011 there was a rumor posted on DX-World of a good source that said Navassa was going to be activated in 2012. I wonder if it just got pushed back a year or so.

Back in 2011 there was a rumor posted on DX-World of a good source that said Navassa was going to be activated in 2012. I wonder if it just got pushed back a year or so.

And there was a responder - K4UEE, who said the rumor was false,  but that the KP1-5 Project was working on it, and expected to eventually make it happen.

K4UEE is on the FT5ZM trip, so I  seriously doubt the KP1-5 Project will be activating KP1 any time in 2013.

However, I am starting to get the feel that 2014 could end up as exciting as 2012.

There could be "pop up" announcements like 7O6T - who knows.

I just wonder if anything really rare will be activated in 2013.

Who knows, maybe Tromelin could be the big 2013 surprise.

I have absolutely every OC-Pacific and Asian entity except Kingman Reef. When I started DX-ing in 2001, my card checker, and very seasoned, top of the DXCC lists friend Chuck, N6OJ told me to make sure I get all US posessions ASAP, and I did.

I have Wake on all but a couple bands, and most were from a really nice guy whom I had rag chews with -  Chuck, N4BQW (sk).

But - Wake on 160 will be super fun..

Yeah, Wake to you is like Bouvet or Glorioso to me. Rare as hell but already confirmed (though for Bouvet I only have one QSO, period). At this point I'm just looking for whatever it takes to make H.R., and assuming I work all three majors announced, that still leaves me one shy.

Ok, let me be the first to call P5. Cheesy

LOL you beat me to it Grin

I think Mr Un. should be in a very good mood right now for a nice American/South Korean DXpedition. Grin

If only Dennis Rodman was a Ham operator  Roll Eyes

Dennis Rodman???...The only ham that idiot knows is the one he sits on!....Anyway, my guess is Mt. Athos too....because of the vid....maybe you guys worked out something with the monks....to transmit from a remote location away from the monasteries???......KP1, would be cool to .....be my first one in 22 years......of course these countries are not on my needed list of 58 remaining.....one of which is Amsterdam.....looking forward to the annnouncement either way....
