CY0S --- > The 2023 Sable Island CY0S DXpedition team has announced that  "a
well known  DXer  and  DXpeditioner",  who wishes  to remain anonymous,  has
offered  "to match  any donations  to the  CY0S DXpedition  from this  point
forward until arrival on the island on 20 March 2023. For example, if a con-
tributor  donates 100 USD  to the DXpedition,  this  100 USD  will  then  be
matched for a total of 200 USD".
Meanwhile, the team is working on the antennas and is  "continuing to manage
and fine tune gear based on the very strict weight limitations for the DXpe-
dition. The team is limited to a total of 2965 lbs [1345 kg], which includes
the weight of the operators, radio gear, antennas,  antenna mast,  long mast
stakes for the loose sand,  coaxial cables,  food  and personal gear.  Every
pound of weight counts and this is a huge challenge".
