Tristan da Cunha and Gough Island

Paul, ZS1S (ZD9ZS), and possibly another operator will be visiting Tristan da Cunha in September/October (the ZD9 callsigns will be announced in due course).
Operators will be traveling to and from Cape Town on the South African Antarctic supply ship, the "SA Agulhas II".
The ship is scheduled to depart on September 4th, arrive at Tristan da Cunha four to five days later depending on the weather and sea conditions. It will depart for Gough Island after a few days and return to Tristan da Cunha ready for the scheduled departure on October 4th. The duration of the return trip to Cape Town will again be four or five days.
There may be an opportunity to operate as /MM.
A six meter propagation beacon, ZD9SIX, will be installed during the time on the island.
The complete details will be made known in the next two weeks.
