CQ NEWS (CQWW Contest Expands Recognition for Assisted Categories)
CQ Communications, Inc, reports on October 27th: "The SSB weekend of the CQ World Wide DX Contest is this coming weekend, and CQWW Contest Director Bob Cox, K3EST, is highlighting the expanded and strengthened award program for the Assisted categories, as of this year's running of the CQWW Contest. This applies to both the SSB and CW weekends.

'The CQ WW Contest Committee would like to inform you,' says Cox, 'that the ASSISTED CATEGORY award program has been greatly expanded.' Specific changes include the following:
- All Low Power and QRP assisted entrants will be specifically listed and eligible for awards as is already the case for unassisted entries.
- A band-by-band breakdown for all band assisted World, Europe and USA will be provided within the 2010 results.
- Lastly, the number of plaques available to assisted entrants will be increased to include Europe Assisted All Band and all World Assisted Single Bands.
'We hope that this action provides an incentive for entrants using a QSO spotting system to join the assisted category,' Cox explains.

K3EST also reminds CQWW participants that the log submission deadlines have been changed. SSB logs must be submitted by Nov. 21, 2010 and CW logs by Dec. 21, 2010."

CY0, SABLE ISLAND (Update/Operation Postponed)
Randy, N0TG, reports:

"Dear Clubs and Foundations who have generously supported the Sable Island Dxpedition: Thank you for your support and the opportunity for us to work with you. Unfortunately, as perhaps you have heard, a problem with the special equipped aircraft in preparation for our flight has caused a delay for an unknown extended amount of time. It is expected that the delay is going to be extensive as the problem is a major safety related issue and the aircraft cannot fly.

Thus, due to the uncertainties of the delay and that a reschedule of the DXpedition, if possible to do so, would likely need to be next Sept/Oct. It is therefore very appropriate for us to refund the support you have provided, as well as, to individual supporters. I cannot express how disappointed we are in not being able to carry on with a definite plan. Perhaps we will try again in the future, but for now.... it is impossible to project when or if it will be possible. A description of the issue the best we understand is provided below:

A superficial dye-penetrant test indicated the presence of cracks. Clearly the aircraft cannot fly in a condition in which there are visible cracks, but of unknown extent, in the axles. Therefore this aircraft is no longer airworthy and it is grounded indefinitely until the axle can be removed from the aircraft (no small job) and subjected to additional NDT testing to determine the extent of the cracking. Whether the aircraft can legally remain in service with some known amount of cracking is possible but highly unlikely. The aircraft owner will need to either develop a repair scheme (also highly unlikely), or they must find a replacement axle in new or certified re-conditioned state, all of which parts require FAA documentation to validate them. Since the aircraft is of British design, there may be other airworthiness documentation consider- ations regarding part certification.

The aircraft the axles are on is a Britten-Normal Islander which has been out of production for decades. Finding a qualified major part for an aircraft of that age is so challenging a business that special companies exist solely to do that on behalf of aircraft owners. Our charter aircraft operator is being very honest with us. He has solid grounds for stating that he cannot put a date upon when our transportation will be airworthy again.

There are other aircraft of this type in Canada but no-one with both the necessary modified undercarriage for landing on beach sand and the willingness to use it on Sable. A replacement fixed-wing aircraft is therefore a non-option."

NOW FOR THE GOOD NEWS.... Randy states, "As of recent days Al Wilson VE1AWW/CY0 is assigned as a worker on Sable Island. His schedule is 3 months ON and 3 Months OFF. Currently he is on the Island and will be active as work schedules permits through DECEMBER. This is a new development/new ham and may help the 'need'. He is beginning to show up on the Spotting Clusters...."

"Thank you again; we will be refunding in the near future. Updated information will be posted on our web site as to final decisions related to any potential reschedule as details become available. Web site is:

http://www.CY0dxpedition.com
73, again, we appreciate the support and encouragement during the planning phase..... Randy N0TG"

ADDED DETAILS THANKS TO DX-WORLD.NET. Reportedly, Alan, VE1AWW, is a new operator, licensed since July 2010. It was Randy, N0TG, of the CY0 DXpedition, who made the suggestion that he give amateur radio a try. Alan works on the island 5-6 days a week. He is not on the air 1100-1900z (1200-2000z once Canada switches from Daylight Savings to Standard Time) Monday-Friday, and sometimes Monday-Saturday. He plans to do his best to operate at different times on the weekends so as many different areas as possible get an opportunity to work him. Alan states, "While I am a fan of the lower frequencies, there is a lightning hotspot southwest of Sable Island. I am often affected by static crashes, especially on 80m."
