HELP NEEDED (Update/Mystery)! Last week OPDX had been asked to help find/locate the right QSL route for the Johnston Island operation during September 1992 by KH3AF. Several have sent replies to us and here are the results:
Best result: Richard Giles, P.O. Box 1632, APO AP 96555 (This address was updated during 1999 on a German QSL Database).

Not recommended: Richard Giles, P.O. Box 976, APO SF 96305-5000 (This is an old address which was good at one time, however, Richard has moved since then).

The last lead: Richard D. Giles, KH3AF, was operator ex-WH6CJQ and was mentioned by many now as NH6YG. However, it was brought to OPDX's attention by a INDEXA staff member, that Richard Giles is now AC7CM. However, AC7CM is listed on the Buckmaster and QRZ web pages as "Rick D." and not "Richard D." with an Utah address. You "may" want to try this address. There is also an E-mail address on QRZ.com that we sent a message to, and it bounced.

Lastly: OPDX was told that Richard was spotted a year and half ago doing some diving on Bikini Atoll. Maybe this can lead to something else. For now, it is a mystery.

AH3D LOG SEARCH VIA E-MAIL AVAILABLE. "The Daily DX" reports that you can now use the AH3D log search to look up your QSOs by doing the following:
1. Send an E-mail to ah3d-log@n4gn.com
2. Subject: "Call" - only one call per subject line
3. Body of message should be blank.
4. Send E-mail message.

The process takes about 30-90 seconds. You will then receive a response back in the form of an E-mail stating your QSOs that are in the AH3D log. If you find that you are not in the log, please read the complete E-mail carefully. Remember, QSL requests for AH3D should be sent to OH2BH: 2003 Johnston Atoll DXpedition, P.O. Box 73, FIN-02380 Espoo, FINLAND. For more information about AH3D (coming soon), see the DXpedition web site:

On a stormy winter's night 85 years ago, the S.S. Florizel left the harbour of St John's, NF bound for Halifax and New York. The S.S. Florizel, pride of the Red Cross Line and with 137 souls on board, made a fatal navigational error and crashed onto the rocky shore 12 miles from Cape Race. At 4:50 AM the British Naval wireless station BZM at Mount Pearl, NF, near St John's, received an SOS from MZL; the Florizel. The Marconi operator Cecil Carter sent the message without waiting for a confirmation. He knew at best he had only moments before the power from the ship would fail as the seas were crashing over the stern. The Marconi House on board was a life saver; firstly for providing the means to send the distress call and secondly as the only safe shelter for up to 30 people during the 27 hour wait for rescue.

February 24th, 2003, will mark the anniversary and is being commemorated at Admiralty House Museum and Archives (Formerly H.M. Wireless station BZM), the site of a new permanent exhibition about the Florizel disaster of 1918. The special event call VO1MZL will be used, and it is planned to be a yearly CW-only event. VO1BZM is also a Marconi site and will also be in operation for International Marconi Day in April. The Museum web site is:
