Hello everyone,

This 'breaking news' will be too late if we wait for this weekend's ANS news
cycle so here's a heads up now ...

>From the ARLD032 DX news:

UNITED STATES, WC5C. Members of the Tri-County Amateur Radio Club
(WC5C) will once again activate Pelican Island (TX050L) on August
14, starting at 1400z.  Pelican Island is an uninhabited island on
Eagle Mountain Lake in North Central Texas. The club members make
an adventure of it, getting to the Island by kayak, canoe and
various other water craft.  Activity will be typically 40, 20, 15
and 10 meters. Modes are usually CW and SSB, sometimes satellite FM
and PSK31. QSL info is available on QRZ.com.
