V6 - MICRONESIA N6VV, NG7S and W7DR cancelled their activity from Mokil (DXNL 1096) since they did not manage to send enough generator fuel to this island in time. Therefore their V63DC activity will take place only from Pohnpei Island (OC-010).
3B7 - ST BRANDON The 3B7RF DXpedition overcame many difficulties even on their way back home: Some people became seasick. Due to heavy storms and big waves the return trip to Mauritius lasted 75 hours (instead of 30). Although, they had adequate supply of water, the sea provided the food source.
