During the weekend, there will be a few chances to work interesting DXpeditions: the E51M team, after operating from North Cook, has moved to South Cook where they are on the air as E51EWP.

Another activity, 9M0L, Spratly, will surely get the Dxers attention. The 13 people team, composed of Japanese and Malaysian members (except for G3TXF) will be active through April 24th from Pulau Layang Layang (AS-051).

YT1AD is still touring the Pacific. He is currently in Rotuma through April 20th as 3D2R.
