HD8M Team start their activity from Galapagos Islands.

HD8M Galapagos Islands News 3 January 2022

The HD8M team has decided that we will not be making the DXpedition to the Galapagos Islands originally planned for March 2-12, 2022. This decision was made after much discussion and consideration and was made after consulting with persons in Ecuador who are closely attuned to the nature of the global SARS CoV-2 pandemic (aka COVID-19, aka
Coronavirus) and how it is spreading there and the impact it is having on Ecuador and the Galapagos. Given all the factors, many of which are shifting rapidly, and that team members were coming from various places in North America and would therefore need to travel through multiple countries, airports, and way points in order to reach the destination, it has become clear that the risks now make it unwise to proceed at this time.

The team is hoping to find another opportunity to make a trip to the Galapagos at some future date.
