(F6KOP) team and the Lyon DX Gang (F6KDF) are joining together in an effort
to put Tromelin back on the air in 2014. In the last months we have
exchanged many documents, E-mails with the authorities and we have also
met them in their office. Today, we are working all together in a very
efficient way, and, even if all papers are not finalized yet, we are very
confident for our project. We hope to give you some good news as soon as
possible..... Best 73s, de Seb, F5UFX."
