The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service has agreed to allow an amateur radio operation from Navassa National Wildlife Refuge (KP1).  The operation will occur within the next 18 months and will be coordinated with the USFWS work flow.  During the past year, the KP1-5 Project has worked with the various levels of the Fish and Wildlife Service to get the operation underway.  The team reports that Wildlife officials have been receptive to the idea of an amateur radio presence on the protected island.  According to DXpedition members,”We have been treated with sincere interest and respect and believe that amateur radio operations may no be viewed as partners and not adversaries.” This is great news for DXers worldwide, since Navassa Island “is ranked #2 most-needed DXCC entity by DX Magazine and #1 by Clublog.  For details, visit http://kp1-5.com/  Aloha de Russ (KH56JRM).
