This DX-pedition was cancelled !! 
Subject: [CE0XT2001] update 
Dear Everyone,
I just spoke with Randy and everyone is safe and well but he had very 
disappointing news.  It turns out that the boat they were to travel on 
was impounded by the military port authority for at least a week and 
there was no recourse but to cancel the trip.  
Therefore everyone will arrange transportation home as quickly as 
possible and each team member will call home individually when their 
flight arrangements are finalized.

 *** Date: Fri, 09 Feb 2001 18:17:34 -0800  (Bill K6GNX) 
Will be delayed one day
Due to government paper work delays they will not be able to leave until 
tomorrow evening at approximately 8PM Chile time.  I hope to talk to the 
team tomorrow morning and will keep you all posted on the latest.  They 
may have a rig working on the boat but that is not definite yet.
