Last week was a rough week for your editor. After about 7 days of no connection to the outside world, BARF-80 BBS was finally back on-line connected to the InterNet on Thursday, April 12th. How bad was the connection missed? After several hours of down- loading, BARF-80's backlog of messages was just over 1400 messages (and this does not include all the amateur radio UseNet New Groups). We were very lucky (and thankful) that "APK.NET" held all messages (few were lost) until the new DSL service was reconnect with BARF-80's ISP "NSHORE.ORG". The DSL service that pulled the plug because of bankruptcy effected over 1000 ISP and 81,000 users in northern Ohio. We are glad it is back!

According to the AR-Cluster Network for the week of Sunday, 1/April, through Sunday, 8/April, there were 233 countries active.

PLEASE NOTE: The report "could" contain "Pirate/SLIM" operations. As always, you never know - "Work First Worry Later" (WFWL). OPDX InterNet Subscribers will receive an additional bulletin (due to its size) with a complete breakdown and "DXCC/Entities Chart of Activity".

A station signing as 3A2DX was heard active on April 4th, on 28495 kHz at 1400z and then QSYed to 15 meters CW. This station is a "Pirate/Slim". DO NOT QSL. Save your money. Buckmaster also has this station listed as a Pirate.

Claude, F5PBL, is now back in France as of April 2nd. He sent OPDX the following and requested that we publish it: "Tnx to everybody for the calls. Despite a high level QRN on my side, I hope I have answered to most of your calls (except USA ... sorry guys, the QRN was S9 towards the States ! Did my best but ...). That was my very first DX trip so sorry for my lack of experience in pile-ups managering! QSLing is OK via bureau or direct (Claude TERRIER, 18 allee du Mail, F-92360 Meudon-la-Foret, France). Note that the address in Villeparisis (Zip 77270) is OK also but not the quickest one and please avoid Aulnay (Zip 93600) because the Postal services will soon stop the forwarding to me. QSL cards should be printed and delivered within 6 weeks now. I will then start the answering process, starting with direct requests, of course. I will NOT answer to eQSLs, sorry." For more updated information and the log (which will be available soon), check out the Web site at:

HK0, MALPELO ISLAND (2nd Operation Update)
Jairo/HK5MQZ and Hiro/HK5QGX have announced that the DXpedition originally planned between April 8-21st has been cancelled. The reason for this cancellation: The second voyage of the only ship that sails to Malpelo was cancelled; the scuba group that had originally contracted the ship cancelled out. Jairo informs OPDX that the first sailing from April 6th and 13th has no problems and would have taken place. They had planned to sail on April 6th on the first trip and return to Buenaventura on the second sailing. But their second trip was cancelled and they did not have any possibilities for the return trip. Therefore they cordially present their apologies to all colleagues who were interested in this operation.

The Magnolia DX Association ( http://www.mdxa.org ) has sent an appreciation plaque to Chuck Brady, N4BQW, for his one man operation as 3Y0C. They wanted Chuck to know how much the DX community appreciated his one man operation from Bouvet Island.

Next will be all direct requests received after March 24, 2001. He also states that 95% of all QSOs are now on-line at:

Gene, UT7ND/ER0ND, QSL Manager for ER4DX, ER0N, ER/UT7ND and ER0ND, informs OPDX that many envelopes have been ripped open by what he calls " mail rats " and return postage in the SAE has been taken. He states that he can not send these QSL cards back direct, so cards will be sent back via the bureau. Gene recommends that when sending QSLs to him, use envelopes that are dense and sealed with tape. Also, it is better/safer to use IRCs.

Alan, states, "Just want to say 'thanks a million' to those amateurs that heeded our request for generosity with funds which we donate to Camp Quality (a children's cancer support charity). So far we have donated close to $20,000.00 and more will be welcome. US$$ are easily donated but IRCs will help a bit if you can't get greenstamps. Don't get the wrong impression... donations don't "buy" a card... you MUST be in the log also, of course. Please visit the Macquarie Island web site (it is regularly up dated)........."

QSL DIRECT ONLY to VK4AAR. Important reminder.... Do NOT (repeat "NOT") waste your time (and Alan's) asking for a QSL card for VK0LD. Cards are NOT available. Details on the above web site.

Originally, they wanted to travel with 4 operators and 2 divers in order to help share the cost. Unfortunatly, they could not find 2 divers. So, instead of leaving with 2 empty spaces (which still has to be paid as the charter and is a fixed price regardless the number of passengers) they decided to invite 2 more operators.

OPDX received another message from Victor, ZK1CG, and he states the following (edited): "Jim/ZK1JD and myself are both running barefoot rigs. Jim has a dipole up about 30 to 40 feet for 20 meters, I know this because I threw the rock over the tree Hi Hi. He also has a vertical and a 5 element monobander on 10 meters up 20 to 30 feet pointed at a very high tree. I Have a G5RV up 35 feet and a Vertical and a Icom 751A (Thanks to W7VV Roger and Sue). I do have a KT34A that's on the ground that I'm trying to get parts for. It is over ten years old and has not seen much action on the Ham bands. I would love to get it up and running before we go to North Cook in October for CQWW SSB Contest with the group from Seattle and Canada for one week. If anyone has a old KT34A with usable parts on it that they would like to see and hear operating from both North and South Cook please contact me. I know not many old and used KT34As are around but you never know your luck... I am running on a single battery at the moment so if anyone hears me FMing, let me know so I can save the rig. Yes, I know you may need the contact, but I like to skip around to the new bands when possible to give the hams a new one on 17 and 12 meters....... Regards, Victor, ZK1CG". QSL ZK1CG to: Victor Rivera, PO Box 618, Rarotonga Cook Islands.
