More details will be forthcoming. Look for periodical updates on the following Web pages at:

OC-119. A group of 3-4 Philippine operators are planning DXpedition to the rare Jolo IOTA group sometime later this month. Dates to be confirmed and will be announced later. Operators are hoping to use the callsign DX8DX or DX8J, or possibly DU8/homecalls. More details are forthcoming.
OC-187. Aki, JA1NLX, is planning to operate as JA1NLX/VK4 from Lizard Island for three or four days in August (dates not finalized). Activity will be on the HF bands using CW and SSB. Lizard Island is located about 240Km north of Cairns. QSL via his home callsign, direct or by the Bureau or LoTW. For updates, see Aki Blog page at:
SA-045. Operators Orlando/PT2OP and Fred/PY2XB plan to activate an island in the Amapa State Group, in August, during the second fortnight (second week). The Amapá State is in the extreme northern part of Brazil, and the islands in SA-045 are located in the northern hemisphere. Amapá has few Hams and the state is highly requested by colleagues who wish to achieve the diploma "Worked All Brazil" (WAB). It has been a long time since an Island in IOTA SA-045 was activated. Last month (April),
Orlando traveled to Macapa, capital of the Amapa state, to talk with the environmental authorities and to get information about the region because the islands are part of a biological reserves under environmental protection. He also did a survey of what should be taken as luggage since those islands are uninhabited. Other than radio equipment, they will have to take food, fuel for both the generator and obtain a boat for the operation. The second fortnight of August was chosen due to the HF propagation forecast, the climate conditions of the region and the moon season which affects the sea tide and the opportunities to reach the islands. They will soon announce more details of the expedition including its callsigns.
J48/SV8, GREECE (IOTA Op)
Laci, HA0HW, will once again be active as J48HW and SV8/HA0HW from Thassos Island (IOTA: EU-174, GIOTA: NAS-037, MIA: MG-124, WLOTA: LH-4186, QRA: KN20HS) between May 26th and June 5th. He will operate mainly CW, with some SSB, RTTY and PSK31 as well, on the HF bands (mainly on 40/30/20/17 meters) and on 6 meters. He will enter the CQWW WPX CW Contest (May 28-29th) as J48HW. His rigs are a FT-840 with a MOS-FET amplifier and an IC-706 (for 6m only). Antennas are a monoband Gps and dipoles on fishing poles. QSL via his home callsign, direct or by the HA Bureau.
JX, JAN MAYEN (Update/Changes)
The Jan Mayen DXpedition set between July 6-14th, 2011, (see OPDX.949 and OPDX.994) and led by Stan, SQ8X, has announced their group's callsign has been changed instead of JX7VPA as first announced. They received the privilege to activate the island under the unique, special callsign JX5O thanks to the assistance and support of the LA5O Ringsjøen Contest Club founded by Rag LA6FJA and Svein LA5FHA. Following Norwegian regulations, the usage of the callsign has been arranged at Norwegian Post & Telecom by the Club’s committee.
Currently, the team consists of: Stan/SQ8X (team leader), Pete/SQ9DIE, Vicky/SV2KBS, Leszek/NI1L, Tomek/SQ9C, Bernie/HB9ASZ, Jón/TF3ZA, Björn/ SM0MDG and Tom/SQ9C. The group plans to be on the air for 8 days with 2-3 stations. Stan also states, "Due to polar summer season at Jan Mayen Island with broad daylight 24/7, the team will not operate on 160-80 meters those bands will be totally dead at that time. The DXpedition will focus on 30-6 meters, and our main modes will be CW and RTTY/PSK, with some SSB if conditions will be good enough to operate as much as we wish to. The team will also check conditions on the 40m band, but the band may also be not usable at that time of the year. The team will have a professional TV crew on board that will prepare a broadcast documentary about the project and the island." Updated details and QSL route are available on the following Web page at:
Dave, N2NL, will be active as NH2T from Guam (OC-026) during the CQWW WPX CW Contest (May 28-29th) as a Single-Op/All-Band/ High-Power entry. He is expected to be here until the summer of 2013. Dave will be active (outside of contests) as KH2/N2NL and during all contests as NH2T. QSL via LoTW or via W2YC.
KH4, MIDWAY ISLAND
Joe, W5FJG (ex-EL2JM, JY9ZK, ST2JM, 7Z1AC) is now on Midway Island (OC-030) and is working on the island as the Chief Communications Officer for at least one year. He plans to be active as KH4/W5FJG starting the last week in May. Activity will be on 40-10 meters (possibly 80m if he can get a good vertical to the Island) using CW, SSB and the Digital modes. At the present time, Joe has only an Icom 7000 (but no power supply or antennas), but will probably have additional equipment shipped to him later. His antennas system will be modest at first, and hopes to be on the air by June 1st. Antennas have to be installed so that there is minimal impact to the island's bird population.
Joe's operating times will vary during the week and weekends. He mentions
that he is setting up a Web site that will contain some information about
the Island and post operating schedules. Over time, Joe intends to set
up a long term station on the Island so Midway will remain on the air
long after he has gone. Joe is looking for any donations of multiband
verticals, as well as a QSL Manager. If you’re interested in being his
QSL Manager, please contact him at: firstname.lastname@example.org
More information is forthcoming soon.

PP0T, TRINDADE ISLAND (Update)
Junior, PY2ZA, showed up on the air as PP0T after last week's bulletin went out. Jerry, N4JF, informed OPDX that Junior is working at a military base and has to follow some very strict rules of operating time and conditions. He is using military equipment that does not have split capabilities. This is why he is always simplex. Jerry states, "He (Junior) is using two FT-990 from the Navy.. This is not a normal DXpedition. When operating split he uses one for RX and the other for TX. He frequents 28.495 MHz SSB." Keep watching the Web page for possible updates:

As of April 18, 2011, Buzz, NI5DX, will no longer be assisting 9M6JC as QSL Manager. John has decided to handle the QSL duties himself. Please do NOT send any 9M6JC cards to NI5DX either direct or via the Bureau. It appears that the loss of a large parcel of QSL cards that Buzz sent to 9M6JC containing cards for both John and Tom, 9M6TMT, has caused the two to decide to handle their own paperwork, hopefully avoiding the future loss of cards.
QSLS BEING SENT TO EA7FTR AND EB7DX. David, EB7DX, informs OPDX that QSL processing by him and his father will be slowing down due to a serious family illness (his mother is in the hospital). They hope you can understand the situation. Thanks for understanding.

Paul, N6PSE, Co-Leader of the T6PSE DXpedi- tion, sent out the following press release (#3) on May 2nd: "The Intrepid- DX Group has been planning for many months to conduct a large multi- national DXpedition from Kabul, Afghanistan as T6PSE.
* We had been receiving advice and assistance from Jim McLaughlin, WA2EWE/T6AF, who was killed in Kabul earlier this week.
* The Taliban subsequently announced their 'Spring Offensive'.
* Last night, President Obama announced the killing of Osama Bin Laden.
Given these circumstances, and with careful consideration, we have decided to cancel our plans for a DXpedition from Afghanistan. There is just too much uncertainty in the region for us to continue to move forward with our plans.
In the next several weeks I will refund all donor/sponsor monies that
have been given to support our plans.
Thank you, Paul S. Ewing-N6PSE"
