Information from Oliver:
A visit to St. Helena Island is scheduled for October 14 through November 2, 2015. The primary purpose is to enjoy the Island and revisit some of Napoleon's history. The Island is celebrating the bi-centennial year of Napoleon's exile and, the residents are anticipating completion of an airport in 2016.

Operation will be focused on the CQ WW SSB and WAG CW Contests. Operation on 160 through 10 meters is planned throughout the stay.

Following the operation on St. Helena, I will return to Ascension Island via the Royal Mail Ship and be joined by friends to operate the CW WW CW Contest in November.
