July-August-September 2019 IOTA expedition to NA-176, NA-125, NA-068 and NA-077 has been cancelled due to urgent gull bladder surgery scheduled on August 7, 2019.  That supposed to be a car tour started from Vancouver, BC on July 14, drive across Canada to get back on September 11. Places on NA-176, NA-125 and NA-077 were off-grid, so expedition equipment included 2 Honda EU-2000i generators and a bunch of other stuff normally not taken to airplanes. 

As of August 15, 2019 recovery after surgery is going fairly well, however, the doctor doesn't recommend any full-scale physical activity during 6-8weeks. Any HAM radio expedition falls under this definition
