CY0C Sable Island News 25 May 2020
Many have asked about the impact COVID-19 could have to the Sable Island Dxpedition scheduled for October.
We are routinely in contact with Parks Canada and cautiously optimistic for October at this time. Certainly, matters can change quickly.
However, if the dxpedition schedule is delayed due to COVID-19 regulations, we have been assured by Parks Canada that they will work with us to reschedule the Dxpedition. The team has been polled, and all agree that they will be able to comply to revised dates. Currently the border between Canada and USA is closed until June 21. Shortly after that date, we hope to have a firm decision for October assuming no additional regulations for travel, etc are placed into effect.

CY0C - Sable Island Permission for a Dxpedition has been authorized for Fall of 2020. Team leader - WA4DAN. Some time ago, we had scheduled fall of 2019 for Sable. Due to circumstances we had to reschedule to 2020. Hopefully this will be better for propagation. The permit process took over a year of emailing, phone calls, and furnishing documents. Sable at this point is no longer easily "permitted" for Ham Radio DXpeditions, as the policies have changed with the change in administration. In fact our permit finally was graciously authorized as a "one time special use permit". We believe that it is very probable that permits in the future may be esentially "nil" for a very long time. Among other policies, visitors to the island are not permitted overnight stays. Thankfully, we have been authorized to stay there for 7 - 8 days ( $300 per person per day). We are grateful and excited and look forward to meeting the challenge of a sizeable operation as if it were the last one for a very long time. The team for the upcoming CY9C St. Paul Island August Dxpedition will be the primary makeup of the Sable team. A "SABLE" information page will be maintained on the St. Paul website, https://cy9c.com This news update is provided at the request of Murray, WA4DAN-Sable and St. Paul Team Leader. Thanks, Randy N0TG
