Thanks to the Northern Ohio Amateur Radio Society, Northern Ohio DX Association, Ohio/Penn PacketCluster Network, AB5K & the AR TelNet Clusters Network E21EIC, NL8F and YV5EN for the following DX information.

Operators Jack/HS1FVL, JC/E20NKB (XYL of Champ) and Champ/E21EIC will operate from Bali as YB9/AF1VL, YB9/AB1PB and YB9/KY1A respectively, between November 14-18th. QSL via their home callsigns. They will also operate as YB42SEA (special callsign) for the 42nd SEANET Convention in Bali. See info at:


V7, MARSHALL ISLANDS (Update/Change)
Tim, NL8F, will once again be active as V73TM from Arno Island (OC-029) [not Majuro Island as first announced] between November 26th and December 3rd. The reason for the change is the old reliable hotel next to the airport on Majuro with sunny white beaches now belongs to the Education Ministry, so now he will travel by boat (4 hrs) to Arno. Tim informs OPDX that Anro Island is a nice place with a beautiful sandy beach facing north. However, there are some small problems -- no power so now packing generator, no food and now just a bit more work and more costly.

He also adds that Paula, NX1P, will be coming along and will be providing the CW end of the operation as well as an entry in the CQWW DX CW Contest. They are looking for a special callsign to use. Activity will be on 80-10 meters using a Butternut HFV9, folding antenna and Inverted L for 160m. Modes will be CW, SSB and possibly Digital. Tim is looking for any donations to help with the new cost which can be sent to ttim@arctic.net via PayPal (This will be much appreciated). QSL via K8NA (see QRZ.com).

YV0, AVES ISLAND (Jumping The Gun!)
Minutes after going to print about the Aves Island DXpedition in OPDX.1188, the information was taken down off the Web. Edwin, YV5EN, apologized to OPDX and the DX community for the info and states he was

"testing the YV0AI QRZ.com page. It was on the Web just about 3 minutes just for testing purposes. Now I'm testing the page in a personal domain which is very different than the QRZ.com. There is no official info at this time and no specific date known, but the Radio Club Venezolano is working very hard on it. Hope YV0 will be soon on the air, but it depends on Venezuelan Navy. Now that everybody knows the callsign, please feel free to visit QRZ.com for any news. Sorry again if those 3 minutes of Web testing makes all the Ham community feel so angry or sad. Again, it was just 3 minutes for testing purposes...."
