3 YEAR DXPEDITION (Amazing Lady!)
OPDX was informed by Skipper Susan Meckley, W7KFI, that she was starting her 3 year DXpedition to Central America and the South Pacific. At the time she contacted us she was in Mexico soon to sign W7KFI/mm. NOW FOR THE AMAZING PART! Susan told OPDX that she originally was to go on a 1946 Brewer, the vessel called Menage-A-tROIS. However, she states she soon found out that, at the age of 69 years old (YES 69), she could no longer single handedly sail the boat in heavy weather. She stated, "It was just too much boat for an old lady." (ed. AMAZING) Susan traded her boat for a Challenger 1932. The Vessel S/V Dharma. She stated, "This size boat I can handle all by myself." (ed. WOW!). Susan left Oakland, CA, in January and has been slowly working her way south. She has spent time in many ports, and she found them very nice. Susan has been in Ensenada, Mexico (Baja California), for the last month, but has now left again on Wednesday, April 16th, for San Jose, Punta Cabras. Heading south, Susan told OPDX that she would be operating from an island that has not been operated on before, the Isle San Martin (NA-162). She was heard April 17th as XE2/W7KFI from San Martin on 14249 kHz at 2341z. The length of her stay is not unknown. However, Susan provided OPDX with her next stops (no dates given). Her next stop will be at Bahia de Torguga (Turtle bay), and from there to Magdelina Bay, Cabo San Lucas, and finally La Paz. Susan will be in La Paz for a few weeks, then it is off to the islands in the Sea of Cortez for operating....and into Guymas for the hurricane season. Come fall she will go down the mainland coast ending in Costa Rica. In April 2004, she is off to Galapagos Islands and into the South Pacific. Susan states, "I will be in the South Pacific for up to three years, operating from any island that will give me a license to operate. This is a fully self-funded expedition. I asked all around for support but was unable to get any. Rig is an FT-847 with two 32' pop-up masts and I will be on all modes except SSTV...including Pactor. I intend to follow in the footsteps of Danny Weil from the 50's. Hopefully, I will not end up on a reef like he did." We hope Susan will continue to contact us on her amazing trip, and we wish her the best. One last note. Susan told us that she has room on board for a crewmember if anyone wants to go. If interested, let us know and we will forward the message.

7P8, LESOTHO (Update)
A fifth operator has been added to the July 7P8 Lesotho DXpedition that will give the group an added plus in the digital mode operation. The newest operator to join the group is Dave Anderson, K4SV, a veteran of many world-class DXpeditions and a world class RTTY and digital modes operator.

QSL STATUS OF RI0B and RU0B (Also Ham Video) of the "Lost Islands" DXpedition. EDITOR'S NOTE: We did our best to interpret the following information. Yuri Zaruba, UA9OBA, informs OPDX that all direct QSLs received in Russia after the polar expedition to "Lost Islands" (2001) were answered by RW3GW and UA9OBA during last year. Also, ALL QSLs for all QSOs were sent via UA3DX-QSL-Bureau in 2002. More than 25,000 beautiful 2 page QSLs were printed and they want you to please QSL! They feel some direct QSL may have been lost in the postal system to/from Russia. Yuri, UA9OBA, now has all the expedition logs (for RI0B, RU0B, RS0B, RU0B/p,RS0B/p, R3CA/0 - 2001) and if you did not receive your QSL(s), please send your QSL with SASE directly to: Yuri V. Zaruba, P.Box 1, Novosibirsk-92, 630092, Russia. Also, please remember, that one IRC will only pay for air mailing of only 20 grams of foreign mail from Russia, so don't forget to enclose sufficient IRCs for a few QSLs. ADDED NOTE: Also Yuri, UA9OBA, informs OPDX that a professional video on the "Lost Islands" is now available. This is the same English version that was shown during the IOTA/DX Hamvention in England on October 12, 2002. This film-and-radio polar expedition ("Lost islands" which included Ushakova Island AS-156 as RI0B and Uyedineniya Island AS-057 as RU0B in April 2001) was awarded the "MOST COURAGEOUS IOTA DXPEDITION OF THE YEAR" by the IOTA community to the team of Russian operators. This video can be ordered at the following Web page at:

Video will be shipped next business day directly from Russia by Registered AIR Mail. Please specify the version you are interested in (PAL for Europe and NTSC for America). They also welcome comments about their professional HAM-video and would like to hear from you on the Web page at:

Members of the RZ6AZZ team (which include UA6AMB, RU6AX, RX6AH, RW6CT, RA6AX, UA6MF and RA6AU) will be active from the Caspian Sea Islands between April 23-28th.

YI, IRAQ (Update)
With the mention of portable YI operations in last week's bulletin, many have been wondering whether or not these operations would count for DXCC. Well, this past week ARRL Membership Services Manager Wayne Mills, N7NG, provided the answer in/on the ARRL Letter and ARRL Web page. Here is your answer: "ARRL Membership Services Manager Wayne Mills, N7NG, says the League will accept for DXCC credit YI/ operations from Iraq by U.S. or British military personnel provided the operator has written permission from his or her commanding officer. 'There is precedent for this,' Mills said, citing an operation during the 1991 Gulf War. 'These operators will need written authorization to operate from their commanding officers until an interim Iraqi civilian government is in place,' Mills said. After that point, operators would need documented permission from Iraqi authorities." YI portable activity heard so far has been from Mark Smith/NG5L, Jim Dunkerton, KT4CK and Bob Furzer/9K2ZZ/K4CY. ADDED NOTE: There has been some mention of Ed Giorgadze, 4L4FN, who is now in the Middle East after wrapping up his North Korean (P5) operation last fall, may be heading to Iraq because of his involvement in the United Nations World Food Program.

ZA, ALBANIA (Update to OPDX.607)
Team ZA3/ has announced that during their May 29th-June 3rd operation, they have organized on June 2nd a demonstration called the "Day of the Forces of Peace from the Foreign Countries". They will have two stations (radio/mobile) active from the Port of Durres, Albania, for mutual QSO exchanges by civilians and military personnel from Italy and the bordering nations with Albania (that includes Kosovo - Greece - Macedonia - Yugoslavia). All the radio amateurs of the world, particularly military (and ex-military) operators are invited to be on the radio June 2nd.

Operators Jun/VK4SJ and Doug/VK4BP will be active as ZK1AYL and ZK1SIM from April 27th through May 26th. They plan to visit Aitutaki (OC-083) April 27th through 14 May, and then Rarotonga (OC-013) from May 15-26th. Activity will be on 40-10 meters. QSL via VK4SJ either via the bureau or direct to: June Sim, P.O. Box 406, Caloundra 4551, Queensland, Australia. E-QSLs will not be accepted.

Direct cards via: Rob Snieder, Van Leeuwenstraat 137, 2273 VS Voorburg, The Netherlands

OLD type IRC's are not accepted anymore !!! NOT stamped IRC's are treated as NO contribution !!! which means I will send the QSL(s) via the buro !!!

Registred Letters:
It isn't possible anymore to forward registered letters to an other address in Holland. I don't have time to go to the post office during their opening hours. If you you still wish to send me a registered letter e-mail me first and I will give you my employers address which is ok. Registered letters to my home address will not be collected and therefore be send back to sender 3 weeks after first attemp of delivery. I do regret this but I don't make the Postal regulations so I can't do anything about this.

Some QSL Rules:
All received QSL's will be treated as buro cards unless:
1) You have added sufficient Green Stamps, Euros and/or IRC's, please concider our costs, YOU are our sponsor!
2) A SASE is included which should also be big enough for the return QSL's
3) Recent envelopes are used which don't fall in parts if you try to close them
4) The return address is written on the SASE (with the Country name) or an address label is included
5) Only use the new IRC type and make sure they are stamped

Some additional notes:
Direct received envelopes with SASE but with other currencies than Green Stamps, Euros and/or IRC's or Postcards will be treated as buro cards On the QSL be accurate on the callsign date/time information, we will search the log in a 10 minute frame.
Make sure your callsign is repeated at the back of the QSL, this processes faster.
If you made many QSO's you can send 1 QSL and an attachment page with the other contacts sorted on Callsign/Date
Registred letters to my private address are not accepted anymore due to postal regulation changes.
