Press Release - Gloriosos 2009

The Gloriosos 2009 is a new time postponed because of flight problems.  We
think, however, the DXpedition could be begin at the end of August.  The
runway on Grande Glorieuse suffers heavy problems of stability which have to
be solved very quickly, in next July, to allow again the jumbo planes
landing with full security.
This postponing will allow us to include new operators, David, F8CRS, and
Bernard, F5LPY.  Seven operators will go to FT5G.
Three stations will be active 24h a day and the 3rd dedicated to monitor the
6 meter.  This last station will be used back on HF if propagation opens the
lower bands.  
The length of the stay is always scheduled for three weeks if no other
change will happen.
We must once again remain all of you, that the landing on these islands is
very difficult and the Go signal is given only when all the security
measures are in place, known and applied.
We have to thank a lot for their help, the French Australes and Antarctic
Territories Administration, The South Indian Ocean Zone Forces Headquarter,
and the Commandment of the French Foreign Legion detachment in Mayotte.
More News to be published in due time

have made  the DXpedition postponed in any case.  The plane which will have
been used to come from La Reunion to Glorieuses, is now on the zone and
participates to the researches of survivings for an unknown lenght of

These events and to reinforce the runway have been considered by the French
