SA-100. The 3G1DX operation from Pajaros Rocks that was to be active
for 3 days sometime around October 18-23rd, has been cancelled.
The team reports on their Web page, September 30th, at 0437z:
"After long and exhausting negotiations with the Chilean Navy we have been informed that they have denied the permit to land on the island. With the tickets and licenses in hands, all the gear packed and the logistics planned, regretfully, we have now cancelled the operation.
All the donations will be refund to the sponsors and donors.
According to the Chilean Navy standing it is our humble opinion that the activation of this IOTA Group will not occur in the next few years."
PLEASE NOTE: Since the Webmasters of the new <www.iota-world.org> have decided NOT to post or dedicate a Web page to announce upcoming IOTA operations, PLEASE send your IOTA operations information to the OPDX and we will post it here in an upcoming bulletin......
