When sending regular messages, turn OFF your "HTML" format in your mail programs and use plain text. This will save a lot of bandwidth. Using "HTML" usually makes the message twice as big and copies itself twice in one message!

* 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".

Joe, W1JR, thinks so. Joe wrote to OPDX and states, "Just a note to tell you DX this year is doing well and possibly ahead of all years. Each year I try to see how many DXCC entities I can work. In a good year I can make about 280-290. Hence, on January 1, 2001 I started anew AGAIN. I guess I never learn! Yesterday (May 3rd) I worked XU7 for DXCC #270, all in just over 4 months. This is the earliest in the year that I have ever worked 270 entities. I figure I have missed about 10 others. I do keep a normal sleep pattern and don't catch them all! The DX is there. You just have to listen and work them!"

It has been reported that the 3B6RF team is now on the island as this bulletin was being prepared, but not after a change in traveling plans. The team flew to Seychelles as planned but ended up taking a boat to Agalega instead of flying. It was reported that it took the team 34 hours by boat, with rough seas and waves 3 meters high, to reach the island. They are expected to be on the air by 1500z, May 6th. The official news and updates will be posted on the team's Web page at:

QSL MANAGER CHANGE. Steve, DJ7AO, informs OPDX that he is no longer the QSL Manager for Ray, DL2GG/YV5. The new QSL Manager is Sigi, DL3AMA. Send direct via the CBA or via bureau.

Allan, VK2CA, reports that Norried, H44NC, will be leaving New Georgia Island (OC-149) shortly to return to the USA for approx. 12 months. He will be carrying the H44NC logs from July 2000 onwards with him. The new address for H44NC, as of the 1st of May 2001, DIRECT ONLY will be as follows: Norried F. Chaisson, P.O. Box 2262, Springfield, MO 65801, USA. QSLs before July 2000 will still be answered, but only after returning to H4.

QSL INFORMATION FROM THE DESK OF OH2BN: "Effective May 15th, late QSLing of E44DX, H40AA, 4W/N5KO and 4W/W3UR will be done by Steve, KU9C. The procedure we use is to keep answering all direct requests for 18 to 24 months from the time of the actual DXpedition. At the end of that period, all remaining QSOs will be QSLed through the bureau network. Because we do not print extra QSLs for another round, a "combo late request QSL-card" has been designed to confirm these late requests at KU9C.

In the case of TX0DX, we will keep answering all direct requests up to September 2001, when the bureau release will take place. All TX0DX direct requests have been answered as of today and we hold no backlog."

de Jarmo Jaakola, OH2BN

Update on PW0S QSL Status by Steve, KU9C: "It appears that I will have the QSL cards for PW0S, barring unforeseen shipping problems, the weekend BEFORE Dayton. I expect them to arrive at my QTH on May 11th. If this happens on schedule, I plan to issue ALL direct QSL cards that are clean in the log by Tuesday, May 15th (it will be a busy weekend, but most of the preparation is done). Thus, many of you should have a shot at having your card in advance of the Dayton Hamvention. If the schedule slips, my plans are to do what I can do before leaving for Dayton, and finishing the process upon my return. Some of the PW0S members will be at Dayton, and will be hand carrying the paper logs, which will allow me to research any of the 'not in log' QSOs. Thus, if your card does not appear in your box immediately, please give me a few weeks to research the logs, as you may well be not in the log. I'll post a note when the QSL process is 'up to date'. Thanks to all of you that included donations with your QSL requests. The donations will be forwarded to the PW0S team to help pay down the expenses of this operation. If you would like further details, PY7ZZ's web site has a very detailed accounting of the DXpedition expenses, which you may find of interest. Go to the log search page at:

Click on the 'Costs' shortcut. Donations are still being accepted by myself and W9VA, Bill, as we are still trying to close the gap on expenses.............. 73 es DX IS! Steve KU9C"

OPDX has been asked "What is the QSL status of the VK9XY cards?" Last we heard was cards were coming out (for the U.S.) the first past of the year. Does anyone have a more current update to report?

Doug, ZP6CW, informs OPDX that he has had a houseguest for the last thirty-some days, Ian, G4DIE. He obtained permission to operate and was active on CW and PSK. He has made over 400 PSK contacts to date. Ian was scheduled to leave May 1st. His QSL MANAGER is Doug's wife, Dani, ZP6CU. Doug states that, ZP6CU continues to be his manager, and manager for another North American there ZP6GG. She still has logs for S07UN and CN2UN, and they still have the cards on hand for those operations which are now QRT.

Raul, LU6EF, GACW Coordinator and QSL Manager, announced this week that "The GACW Group will accept eQSL cards to achieve the awards that they are currently using. Also, they will accept eQSL cards for any special certificate of merit issued to relevant individuals and/or organizations. In other words, the GACW coordinators will spread the benefits of this system to more than 500 members in Argentina and some other countries to encourage and enforce the use of this very safe, quick and cheap method of confirming amateur radio contacts.

Peter McDonald, VK3DI, Secretary, EMDRC Inc., informs OPDX that the special event callsign AX3ITU will be operated by members of the Eastern and Mountain Districts Radio Club (EMDRC) to celebrate the International Telecommunications Day for 24 hours commencing 0000z on May 17th, on behalf of the Wireless Institute of Australia (Vic Div).

Fred, K2FRD, want to make one last plug for his Labrador DXpdition before he leaves for the north country on June 1st. He expects to commence operations about June 6th and will operate daily until he QRTs on August 31st. This will give the worldwide hams an opportunity to contact CQ Zone 2 and ITU Zone 9 (which are usually not active/listed every week). In brief, Fred will be operating mostly SSB (with occasional CW) on 10, 12, 15, 17, 20, and 40 meters and CW on 30 meters per the schedule on his Web site. Normally, look for him near the MUF, which given the state of 10 meters recently, could be 17 or 20 meters. For more on his frequencies, bands, and schedule details, check his Web page at:

Fred, K2FRD, states in his last press release: "I'd like to thank you (KB8NW) and the Ohio/Penn DX Bulletin, and the many hams worldwide who have provided encouragement and moral support for this trip.

Kia Orana from the Island of Rarotonga

Kia Orana to all Hams from ZK1CG Victor Rivera As you may have heard we are making a DX trip to North Cooks in October for CQWW SSB contest with five operators from the Western Washington DX Club. We will be in Manihiki North Cooks for 2 weeks from October 18th . We need help with this operation and would like to know if anyone is planning a vacation or trip to the Cook Islands before October.

We just received the antennas we will use in the North and South Cooks for this operation at great expense via air freight to insure we can ship to the North Cooks before October.

Now we need to get some ham radio gear down to Rarotonga so we can ship to Manihiki before October.

So if any of you serious or not so serious hams are coming to the Cooks for a vacation or DXing please contact me. I'm sure we will make your stay in the Cook Islands a most pleasant and enjoyable, plus you will be helping many make a new contact from North and South Cooks.

If you would like more information about this operation and what bands and modes we will be operating on please contact me.
