Hans, DK9KX, informed the DX Community that Dominik, DL5EBE, handed over documents regarding the 7O1YGF operation to Wayne Mills, N7NG, at the Ham Radio Fair in Friedrichshafen last weekend. Now it's up to the ARRL to make a decision. The sad new is that Bernd Krueger, DJ7MG, one of the crew passed away in April 2002.

Ron, WA6FGV, is currently active from here as AL8/WA6FGV. His stay is unsure, but he has been active on 40/20/17 meters CW. Watch after 1300z on 40 meters, after 0500z on 20 meters and after 2330z on 17 meters. Also, check phone on 14205 at about 0300z. He says he has a very high noise level, but he wants to pass out the AL8 prefix as much as he can.

Hisato, 7K1WLE, will be active from here (IOTA SA-001) for his summer vacation between July 18-24th as CE0Y/7K1WLE. Some may remember Hisato as VY0/7K1WLE last October. Activity will be on 160-10 meters, mainly on CW and some SSB. He will be using a IC-706+IC-2KL(500W) with a wire antenna. Suggested operating frequencies are:
CW - 1826, 3504, 7004, 10104, 14004, 18074, 21004, 24894 and 28004

In OPDX.568 under "IOTA NEWS", the IOTA number EU-114 was incorrect for Dany's, F5CW, operation from Guadeloupe. It should be NA-114, not EU-114.

The operators from the CY9DH operation are now QRT. Last report, they made 12,180 contacts on HF as of 0000z July 7th. No report is available on VHF contacts. QSL the operation via W7XU. Duane, WV2B, reports that he took pictures before he left the isalnd on July 2nd. They can be seen at:


Tom Roscoe, K8CX, has posted the Dayton 2002 Gallery now up on the Web at:

The Gallery has 154 photos this year. Tom took 97 photos and the rest came from W4MYA, XE1L, VP5JM, N1DG, K8AV, and K8KHZ. There are still some unidentified people in these photos. If you know who these unknown hams are, please let him know. There is photo coverage of the Contesters Banquet, Top Band Dinner, DX Dinner, and Crowne Plaza Hospitality Suites. Tom is interested in putting up a WRTC 2002 Gallery. Unfortunately, he will not be able to attend. If you go, take some pics and send them to him for the Gallery. You can E-mail them to: k8cx@hamgallery.com Or burn the pics on a disk and mail it to: Tom Roscoe, K8CX, 857 N. Albright McKay Rd., Brookfield, Ohio 44403

EA9, MELILLA (Update)
Juan, EA7VK, updates OPDX that the URE group going to Alboran Island (IOTA AF-042), July 19-23rd, is near North Africa. They will be operating on 80/40/30/20/17/15/12/10 and possibly on 160 meters (He says, "This time no good for top band."). There will also be activity on 6m, 2m and 70cm on SSB and CW. If it is possible, there could be operations on RTTY. The transmissions on 50Mhz from the Grid Square IM85LW is new! They expect to put three stantions on IOTA frequencies: one SSB on the HF bands, one CW on the HF bands and one SSB alternating CW for 6/2m and 70cm. Maybe a fourth station will be added for the HF bands. QSL via EA7RU.

(However, it is in Russian)

Bruce, KK5DO, informs OPDX that several weeks ago he sent a bunch of equipment over to Ed, P5/4L4FN. He was in Beijing during the end June and has collected everything. He is now back in North Korea. Among the things sent to him was a complete satellite station for AO-40 (less the radio which he has), a Hex Beam and rotor as well as an addition to his Butternut antenna for 6m/12m/17m. In the next few weeks he will assemble these items and make them operational. Ed will start making some satellite contacts on AO-40, phone only. The Hex Beam should allow him to have a better signal than he has now, and give him the ability to point at the signals he wants to hear. The upgrade on the Butternut will allow him to continue to make 6m contacts and possibly work some further away stations than he already has. Also included in the package was a copy of QST that had an article about him by Bernie, W3UR, and the plaque that was given to him in absence at Dayton, as well as some of his QSL cards (Bruce thought it would be nice for him to see how they look in print).

Roger, WA0ETE, QSL Manager for V31KQ reports receiving numerous QSL card requests for operations outside of their operating dates of April 23rd to May 2nd, 2002. Any operations outside of these dates are most likely the work of PIRATES, as the callsign V31KQ has not been reissued. There are no plans for WA0ETE or K0GHK to return to V31 for the remainder of 2002.

Tom Wood, N4CID, reports that it appears someone is pirating Julian's callsign, ZD7CW. Judging by the cards Tom has been receiving, the pirate is using CW and not very active. He/She was on last November, (2001). ZD7CW, Julian, is no longer active and has been inactive for several years.

The correction QSL info for 4L1RK is not RW6HS but his home address: Revaz Kvinikadze, Tbilisi, St. T. Tabidze-41, House-43. Rep. of Georgia.

QSL for W2NNY are via N2JNZ for Grid FN24. Mail address is: George Osier, 708 East South Street, Ogdensburg , New York 13669.

Walt, G3NYY, informs OPDX that Krissada, E21EJC (known as "Kob" for short), is concerned that his QSL route has been published incorrectly somewhere. He wants it to be known that he does not, repeat NOT, have a QSL Manager. The only correct QSL route for E21EJC is direct to the address on www.qrz.com, or C.B.A., or via the Thai QSL bureau.

Dennis K7BV, now living in CT since joining the ARRL HQ staff earlier this year, was visiting (as this was being written) with Luis CT3EE and other Maderia Island friends July 3-8th. This is a mimi-DXpedition stop as he works his way to Helsinki for the WRTC2002 July 9-16th. (See the Web page at: http://www.wrtc2002.org ) Dennis was expected to be quite active on CW signing CT3/K7BV on HF bands. QSL via Steve, KU9C.

Jim Henry, GI0DVU, QSL Manager for GI4GTY which is a club callsign, has recently been receiving several QSL cards for YO5TP, all of which have been directed via GI4GTY. These have been for operations in the March-April 2002 period. Neither GI4GTY nor GI0DVU act as QSL Manager for YO5TP.

Tim, N6WIN, was active this past week from Aruba, first as N6WIN/P4 and then P40TC later. QSL both callsigns via N6WIN, Bureau or direct to: Tim Coker, 1379 San Bernardino Rd Apt M, Upland, CA 91786, USA. By the way, Tim was operating on a honeymoon trip (WOW!).

Josep/EA3BT and Nuria/EA3WL announced this past week that a Web page has been set up to list all direct QSLs that they have received for their Congo operation (TN3B and TN3W). It is listed in order alphabetically. And you can check it at:

They will try to update it every weekend with all the QSL cards received during the week. Also, a picture of their double sized colored QSL is available on the Web site.

Bob, N0UF, Vice President of the Kansas City DX Club, reports that on Saturday, July 13th, from sunrise (6:03 AM CDT) to sunset (8:44 PM CST), the Kansas City DX Club will be participating in the IARU Contest from the Associated Radio in Overland Park, KS. They will be using the callsign of Lee Bergren, W0AR, the 41st DXer to be inducted into CQ's DX Hall of Fame. They will have a CW and a SSB Station active.

Said Kamel, SU1SK, announced that he will activate the first DXpedition from the Egyptian Western Desert with a special callsign SU60WW. The special callsign marks the elapse of 60 years over the start of World War II in the battlefield of Al Alamein, Egypt. Activity will be between July 6-13th, on 40/30/20/17/15/12/10/6 meters CW/SSB. He was heard this past weekend on 15/17 meters. Watch 18123 kHz after 2130z and 21295 kHz after 1700z. For more details, please visit the DXpedition homepage at:


Alex, PA1AW, informs OPDX that PA6HQ will represent The Netherlands (IARU Member VERON) in this year's upcoming IARU Championship Contest. QSLs for PA6HQ go to PA3CAL. There is also a special PA6HQ award available. For more details on PA6HQ, check the Web page at:


The IARU World HF Championship is right around the corner, within which is the WRTC2002 run (July 13-14th). The callsigns (from OJ1-OJ8 prefix block) in the WRTC2002 Contest that will be used by 52 teams will be:

XW, LAOS (Operation Wrap-up!)
Champ, E21EIC, who was active as XW1IC, reports that he made some 5,106 QSOs and 103 countries. Operations were on CW/SSB/RTTY/PSK31/SSTV. He expects to go back to Laos again in November (maybe for the CQWW CW Contest). His complete E-mail message with more info on his operation will be sent to all OPDX InterNet Subscribers as an additional bulletin.

Holger, DL7IO, informs OPDX that it is holiday time and his family (and one other family) are planning a round trip through Europe. They are expected to travel around F/EA/CT/ZB2. Holger guesses ZB2 may be interesting to the community. The two families will have 3 HAM operators, DL7IQ/Birgit, DJ7TO/Olaf and DL7IO/Holger. They will be travelling around and will be in Gibraltar between July 9th (late evening) and 12th (early morning). They plan to be active at all times. The operators will sign using ZB2/homecall. QSL will be via their homecall. They prefer bureau cards or better no cards, and only an E-mail request for bureau cards. Their E-mail addresses are as follows:
DL7IO -- dl7io@qsl.net
DL7IQ -- dl7iq@qsl.net
DJ7TO -- olaf@taesch.de

Gary/ZS5NK and Edwin/ZS5BBO will once again be in the HF World Championships. They will be operating with the callsign ZS5NK, last year they operated as ZS5T. They are asking all stations to point their antennas to Africa to work them. They really want to put on a big show this year. They will be using one of the following: TS870, TS940 or FT1000MP on a stacked array of TH6's (6 over 6). The linear is a TL922. They will have a 6 element mono on 10m and various dipoles on 160m, 80m and 40m. Edwin states, "We also wish all operators the best of luck for the contest and hope the propagation gods will be on our side!!!"

Subject: XW1IC summary (Time on 53hr)

Sabaydee (Hello) All,

I and Son HS6NDK arrived to Bangkok at 0630TST. Everything is OK and safe. Hiroo XW0X met me at the River View Hotel in the morning on June 30, 2002, when we back from Larry's house. Hiroo took about questions on the e-mail, but now he understood about aim XW1HS and Thai Hams. He told me about Lao licensed and his ham's life.I think everything will be good way.

Anyway I have a good time in Laos and I have chance to go to Vong Veian, Northern Vientiane about 170 Km (4 hr by bus) with Lao's friendsssss. I like a way of life of Lao's people. It's mean classic. hi hi
