Mount Athos dxpedition next week ?

According to a twitter posting by DX-coffee (@dxcoffee), a group of Latvian radio amateurs shall operate briefly from Mount Athos in late May 2015 (May 19-25). The operators are YL2GM, YL2GD, YL3CW and YL2KA and shall use a collective callsign SV2/YL7A. 

No further information is available for the time being, but a press release is expected tommorrow or the day after.

UPDATE 2015-05-16 12:30 UTC: According to a post on DX-world.net by SV1DPI, who is usually well informed about Mount Athos, the SV2/YL7A team don't have the required permit from the Holly Community Council. I wonder how the ARRL shall react when they apply for DXCC acceptance.
