Here is a "teaser" that has me wondering, guessing and dreaming:

http://dx-world.net/2013/major-dxpedition-announcement-coming-soon/#comments

I need these, so I hope its one of them:

FT/T, FT/Z, KH5K, KP1, E3, VK0/H, FT/G, 3Y0/B, VP8/S

And I'll filter out some that I think are unlikely (or already announced) - and because the "teaser" says the rumors are from US and EU - where that "EU" part makes at least one not likely:

FT/T, FT/Z, KH5K, E3, 3Y0/B, VP8/S

Rather than guess exactly - I'll just hope its one of these. Anything else and it will be a band fill for me. From the press release the other day - we know its not P5 (which I already have anyway).

So I'm playing the "Pick 6" lottery here, and them there is my numbers.

And I am also hoping for some great news at Visalia - where many major dx-peditions have been announced in past years.

I'll pick/wish/hope for ANY of those, but Its probably E3 Or KP1, with an emphasis on Eritrea.  But hey....... what do I know Huh

Since I need 40 of them (assuming its not a major expedition to K, G, or DL  Grin) there's a good chance it would be a new one for me. KP1 would be nice, otherwise I'm going to have to build an antenna this spring.

I'm thinking about the hint that US and EU part and so I am going to guess its E3......

I say this because of some posts I read in the "wake" of that Somalia activation last year.

I'm guessing it's something that hasn't been on the air in the past ten years.  Does anyone know which ones are these?  Once I see the list I'll make my prediction Grin

I am really SURPRISED it has not "slipped out" by now. Shocked

Must not be very many in the know.

For some reason I do 't think it is. Unless they bring Dennis Rodman along for the ride.

Good evenig all, thought I would stir the pot and throw in my 2 cents, a friend of mine called me today and asked if I  had heard the rumor about KP1, I  said no, he told me he heard a group of dxers on 20 mtrs discussing KP1 coming up, so Im adding this to the rumor pot, if so good luck to all that need it, 73 Dan WG5G.

I would guess probably KP1.  Wish it was 3C0, 3Y/B, ZD9, or VP8SS.  All of those would be pretty workable from my QTH, and I need them all.  Don't need KP1 but I guess I would chase them on RTTY.  I hope it doesn't get activated for a while, though.  It is pretty cool having the #2 most needed country, that you worked on a Heathkit SB102 and an indoor dipole.
