● TI9M-DXpedition ライセンス上問題がなくなりDXペディ実施を伝える ●
While the Radio Club of Costa Rica (http://www.ti0rc.org) had opposed the forthcoming
DXpedition to Cocos Island "due to the irregular proceedings under which the callsigns
for the operation were obtained", the operators (namely AD6E, AK0A, F5CWU, IK3RIY, IZ7-
ATN, KA0KKO, KI7WO, N4CD, N6KT, N7DF, PA3EWP, PA5ET, RK3AD, WS4Y and TI2HMG, the DXped-
ition founder and leader) were gathering in Costa Rica.
Earlier this week Robert Voss, N4CD stated that "the official radio licenses for all
15 participants, as well as the anding and park permits, have been issued by the Costa
Rican authorities", however the latest good news is that the Costa Rican licencing aut-
horithy has revised the TI9M licence, which now will be used by all the operators.
They hope to depart Puntarenas on 17 February, with arrival at the operating location
approximately 48 hours later.
The team anticipates 24-hour operations with four HF transmitters on all bands from 160m
through 6 metres. The final day of operations will be 2 March.
The web site for the DXpedition is at http://www.qsl.net/ti9m and will be updated as
often as often as communication links allow.

Cocos Island DXPedition: TI9M.
Radio Club of Costa Rica opposes expedition to TI9.
Radio Club of Costa Rica opposes the DXPedition planned from february 17 to march 2,
2002 to Cocos Island, due to the irregular proceedings under which the callsigns for
the operation were obtained.
At no time was RCCR consulted on the operation, which would have been standard
protocol, either by the dxpedition itself of by the Office of Radio Control (TI0CNR).
Currently the DXPedition's original callsign, TI9M, is valid only for one operator
(TI2HMG), and may operate with a maximum of 250W and 10 and 15 meter band restrictions.
Under such irregular operating circumstances, we cannot support this expedition and
will continue to oppose it as long as necessary in order to maintain Cocos Island's
reputation as an amateur radio landmark of international recognition.
