Thanks to the Northern Ohio Amateur Radio Society, Northern Ohio DX Association, Ohio/Penn PacketCluster Network, AB5K & the AR TelNet Clusters Network, K1NU, K1VV, N3SL, W3UR & The Daily DX, N4AA & QRZ DX, K8AV, K8YSE, KC8FS, 4X4NJ, DL1EK & DX News Letter, F5NQL, F9IE, IZ8AJQ, I2YSB, JR3TVH, LA5HE, MM0BQI, SM7AED, UZ8RR, VA3RJ and ZK1CG for the following DX information.

I can't believe that almost every Sunday morning for the last 10 years I have sat in front of my computer writing the OPDX bulletin. Even my wife Linda (OPDX's chief proof reader) can't believe she has been reading "all this stuff" (as she puts it) for 10 years. When I first started the bulletin, it used to take a few hours to write, but it has grown, and now it takes several hours.

Actually, I am a week late in celebrating. With all the confusion last week in losing my link to the InterNet for BARF-80 BBS, I forgot that April 7th, 1991, was the first issue of the OPDX. Many ask, why do you write the OPDX for free?" (including my wife, she says, "If you get one USD from everyone you could buy a new radio"). The reason that I write the OPDX and my involvement in the DX community is to help others achieve the pleasure and challenge of working DX as I have. I really enjoy the hobby. However, I also must not forget the many friends I have gained over the years writing the bulletin. Without their help and contributions of information, there would not be a bulletin. Lastly, I would like to thank my wife. Without her there would not be an OPDX. She is a non-ham (which one day I hope to change), but a LD teacher and proof reads the bulletin every week (usually telling me she is not sure what she is reading), plus she puts up with the many hours I spend at the keyboard and with club activities.

Thanks for reading the OPDX and I hope to continue to provided information each week that will let you work a "NEW ONE".... Remember, DX IS ..

They will CONCENTRATE their activity on 6 meters, but they will also be active on 2 meters and HF. Their callsigns will be 3A/IK5GQK, 3A/IK5YOJ, 3A/IW5BZQ and 3A/IW5EDQ. Their activity is as follows:

6 meters - (50.210 SSB, 50.600 RTTY, 50.620 PSK31) using an Icom IC-706MKIIG with 6 element yagi and HQ50 Halo Loop.
2 meters - (144.290 SSB) Icom IC-706 with 9 element yagi.
HF bands - (SSB, RTTY, PSK31, SSTV) two Yaesu FT-100 and vertical antennas.

You can make skeds before and during their operation by sending E-mail to: 3a@mannelli.com
They will check their E-mail at the top of every hour during their operation. For the latest news and log, please check their Web page at

QSL VHF QSOs (6/2 meters) direct to: Stefano Mannelli, P.O.BOX 569, 50123, Firenze Centro, ITALY. QSL HF QSOs direct to: Fabrizio Vannini, via Forlanini 68, 50127 Firenze, ITALY.

3B6, AGALEGA (Update)
Steve, N3SL, informs OPDX of the following and states that there will probably be one last press release bulletin from the "official sources" before the team hits the air. The advance team leaves in little over one week with the rest of the team on April 28th from Zurich to Mauritius. It is NOT absolutely certain, but it is looking like the team is flying to and from 3B6, which would give them an extra 3 days on the air (that should probably come from the official news release). Steve, N3SL, states that his daughter, Kim, is now going to handle the QSLs for North America (not just the USA). So, Canada and Mexico are to be sent via Kim Larson, 22 N. Hidden Acres Dr., Sioux City, IA 51108 (which is N3SL's CBA). Reportedly, Kim is handicapped and is getting a real thrill in doing this job. It occupies her time, and she loves seeing all the cards. She did probably 75% of the AH1A QSL cards, so she is not a novice. The 3B6RF team is planning a photo card, so that will undoubtedly take a bit of time after the DXpedition to get printed. Steve states that he will see to it that all the U.S. DX newsletters are kept informed on their status. Steve will be doing mostly CW, but he has been asked to do RTTY (or possibly SSB) whenever they're trying to work the U.S.

Riki, 4X4NJ, reports that he will be joining the 3B6RF team as part of a 21 amateur group. He states, "We'll have 8 stations on the air during the first 3 weeks of May. All of the equipment and antennas are "World Class" - examples: 4square arrays on 80m & 40M, Titanex vertical and Beverages for 160M, beams for HF, Yaesu FT1000MP transceivers with 1KW amplifiers, etc...... Naturally, I will devote myself to 160M as much as possible!" For more details, check online at:


Martin, 3C5J, was active last week on 20/17/10 meters. The sad part is that his operation will not count for DXCC because he is operating from an oil platform. He is expected to be there for 6 months. The good news is that "The Daily DX" is reporting Martin may have a chance to go to Malabo to operate which will count for DXCC.

A couple of new stations have been on the air signing the prefix 3XY. Station 3XY6A was active during last week, mainly on 12 meters (24955 kHz between 1730-1930z) with little activity on 20 meters (14203 kHz after 2230z). QSL via VE2XO. Station 3XY2S showed up over the weekend on 10 meters (28447 kHz around 0915z). QSL via P.O. Box 1484, Konakry.

This one has to be the most interesting report of the week. Reports on the Cluster Network indicate that 4U1UN was active on PSK31 on 20 meters and SSTV on 15 meters.

Charles, A25/KY4P, was heard active over the past weekend on 10 meters CW/SSB. Check around 28002 kHz or 28452 kHz between 1200 and 1500z. QSL via SV0LM.

By the time you read this, Tom, WB8N, should be in Nassau (IOTA NA-001) beginning Easter Sunday, for 6 days. He intend to operate a portable HF station from the resort he is staying at, beginning Monday April 16th. He will receive his callsign upon arrival. His operating times will be approximatly from 2000-2200z (possibly longer). His suggested frequencies are:
10 meters - 28495 kHz +/- 10 kHz (main)
28450 kHz +/- 5 kHz (secondary)
28520 kHz +/- 5 KHz
If conditions are poor on 10 meters, look for him on 20 meters (14195 kHz +/- 10 kHz). He will also give 12 meters a try, on: 24950 kHz (SSB) and 24890 kHz (CW) both +/- 5 kHz.

Gunter, OE1GZA, is now active from here as E4/OE1GZA. He was heard this past weekend on 15/10 meters between 1100 and 1600z. Check around 28460 and 21270 kHz.

Pedro, HK3JJH, is now active as HK3JJH/HK0M. Reports show he has been on 40/20/15/10 meters SSB.

Over 30 Special Event Stations representing Historic Marconi station locations worldwide will participate on April 21st, from 0000-2359z, on CW/SSB/Digital. The list of participating stations is on the Web page:

This island represents a new counter for the U.S. Island awards and will be issued a number after this activation. Look for them on 14260 and 21260 kHz +/-. QSL via K1OA, bureau or CBA.

Rag, LA5HE, will once again be active as JW5HE from April 26th through May 1st. He states low band contacts are very unlikely as there is the "midnightsun" now.

Hiro, JF1OCQ, is now active as W1VX/KH4 now through April 22nd. Look for his activity on 80-6 meters, mostly on CW with some RTTY. As this bulletin was being prepared he was active on 7007 kHz around 1345z. QSL via JF1OCQ either JARL QSL bureau or direct to: Hiroyuki Miyake, 1-3-6 Asakura, Maebashi, 371-0811 Japan.

Hal, KC8FS, reports that his 18-year old daughter Holly, N8VUQ, is now there with several of her high school classmates and a local college biology class. She will be in San Juan and the north coast of KP4 until April 21st for an ecological research trip that will net her some pre-college biology credit. She took along a borrowed AEA 10 meter DX Handy and will try to work her father if conditions are right. This would be a great demo of amateur radio for the other students if it works. She will be calling him near 28375 kHz (+/- 5 kHz) at the top of the hour beginning at 1700z and depending upon her scheduled activities. Her operating time will be limited because her itinerary is pretty full with snorkeling, exploring mangrove swamps and hiking in a tropical rain forest. Hal asks that if any DXers hear her, please spot her on the DX PacketCluster. Also, he can be reached via E-mail ( kc8fs@aol.com ) or via the phone (304) 744-5949 (H) and (304) 767-6202 (W).

The Low Land DX-pedition Team (LLDXT) is pleased to announce the 6th Caribbean Tour. This year's tour will bring them to the "Island of Carriacou" (Grenada - IOTA NA-147) from August 2-15th and the Island of Bequia (St. Vincent - IOTA NA-025) from August 16-27th. The team members will be Bouke/PA0ZH, Ronald/PA3EWP, Rob/PA5ET and Dennis/ PA7FM. The callsigns will be J3/homecall and J8/homecall. They will use two FT1000MPs with amplifiers and will be active around the clock on 160-10 meters on the modes CW, SSB, RTTY and PSK31. Titanex has sponsored a V160E vertical to give them a good low-band signal. As is in past years, they will have a Tour Web site which will be updated daily with the latest information, on-line logs, tour diary, digital photo's and digital pile-up recordings. The Guestbook can already be signed. The LLDXT home page can be found at:

All QSLs will be managed again by PA5ET, Rob Snieder, Van Leeuwenstraat 137, 2273 VS Voorburg, The Netherlands. He is a QSL Manager for many other stations; look under "QSL INFO AND NEWS".

The Ukrainian QRP Club will hold its first (what they call a) "QRP-pedition" to the Ai-Petri mountain in Crimea, from May 4-11th. The main aim of this expedition are:
1) To publicize low power activity on the air.
2) To attract the attention of hams to the QRP movement and to show the boundless possibilities for low power operations.
3) To test home-made QRP transceivers, as well as, to meet friends and associate with them.
A special callsign will be used during the QRP-pedition: EM5QRP. The members of the QRP-pedition are: RK3ZK, UR6IRL, UR7IRL, US1RCH, US1REO, UU4JCQ, UY1AW and UZ8RR. The QRP-pedition members output power of their transmitters will be: 5 watts (CW) and 10 watts (SSB). Look for them to be active mainly on the international QRP frequencies. Operations on RTTY and SSTV are being planned too. Prizes (A book, published by Igor Grigorov, RK3ZK) will be given out to three stations who have the largest number of the QSOs with the QRP-pedition members on various bands. All other contacts will get a special QSL card confirming their QSOs. Those who wish to get the QRP-pedition pennant must send their QSL and 4 IRC to the expedition QSL Manager UR7IRL: Vladimir Tretyakov, Post Box 41, Konstantinovka-10, Donetsk Region, 85110, Ukraine.

The final and complete logs for 5U2K, 5U3T, and 5U5A are now available on Sil's, I2YSB, Web site at:

ZK1, SOUTH COOK ISLANDS (Update/Help Answered)
OPDX received another message from a very excited Victor, ZK1CG, and he stated that thanks to the call for help for his KT43A antenna situation in last week's bulletin, someone has offerred to send him a complete/operational KT43A. Details have to be worked out on sending it, but Victor will keep us informed. He will use the antenna at his Rarotonga location, and on his vacation in October to Manihiki, North Cook Islands for the CQWW SSB Contest with five operators from the Western Washington DX Club. They will be in Manihiki for one week, and possibly Victor will be there for 2 weeks. If you are planning a trip to the Cooks and would like to help in getting some antennas down to Rarotonga (so they can be shipped to Manihiki before October), contact Victor. He states, "..... coming to the Cooks for a vacation or DXing........... I'm sure we will make your stay in the Cook Islands a most pleasant and enjoyable one, plus you will be helping many make a new contact from North and South Cooks." Keep looking for Victor on 10 meters between 28480 and 28490 kHz after 0000z. ADDED NOTE: Victor is looking for the extension kit to make the KT43A into a six element beam.

Subject: PW0S/BQ9P QSL Status
Date: Thu, 12 Apr 2001 15:22:26 -0400

I've had several requests for information on BQ9P and PW0S status....here goes:

PW0S: I have the logs and have started the process of printing labels for the cards I have. We've about completed the QSL design, which I think you will find a prominent spot in your collection for, as it depicts the challenges and personal efforts and risks the team took in putting PW0S on the air for you. As soon as we get the QSL into the printing process, I'll have an arrival date and be able to predict when cards will go out and the first round of cards completed.

There are on-line logs at http://www.soutomaior.eti.br/mario/ and then follow the PW0S link....and click on logs. Please report any problems to me at ku9c@arrl.net, but please also note I'm a bit behind, and in many cases, have to direct the question to the appropriate PY amateur. Also, if you have submitted your card, no need to ask via email, I'll research it as I process the cards.

BQ9P: The logs were all by hand, and have yet to be entered into a computer. I'm about to start that process. The QSL design has been started, and as with PW0S, when I send the card to the printer, I'll be able to predict when the cards will be going out. It too will be a color card, so your patience will be rewarded with a nice QSL to commemorate this operation.

Logs may be posted on the web if I find time, although there appears to be limited value in doing so. If you have submitted your card, your QSOs will be checked against the paper logs if there are any questions.

Email me at ku9c@arrl.net if you have any questions.

SSTV and DX-peditions

Never before there was so many SSTV activity from different countries as nowadays. The release of the free soundcard software "MMSSTV" is a big help on the popularity of SSTV. And it's fine to see that major DX-peditions add SSTV to their mode-list. In the past we had already SSTV from 3D2CI, BQ9P, XZ0A, ZK1AXU, ZD7K, ZD8K, A35SC etc etc. If you are going on a trip to an exotic spot, we ( a bunch of SSTV DX'ers ) like to help you to do some SSTV ... It's different to run a SSTV pile up ... we can advise you and bring you in contact with previous "SSTV DX-peditioners". For everybody there is a lot of info for STARTERS on my website: www.qsl.net/on4vt. There you find also recently received DX pictures (4U1UN, ZC4BS, ZD7K, ZD8K, 3D2CI, etc etc).
