CQ MAGAZINE ANNOUNCES WINNERS OF 2006 DX MARATHON
Press release dated April 9, 2007: CQ Magazine DX Marathon -

"In 1947 CQ Magazine held the first ever DX Marathon which then morphed into the CQ World Wide DX Contest. Jump forward almost 60 years and from January 1 to December 31, 2006, the DX Marathon was re-born where hams everywhere were encouraged to "work 'em all" in a twelve month period. The CQ DX Marathon has already increased activity on the bands and appeals to hams in any location and any station capability. The DX Marathon will be repeated every year from January 1 to December 31.

For 2006, the winner in the Unlimited Class is Pete Meyer, N0FW. Pete had an amazing score of 326 - 286 countries and all 40 zones. The Formula class winner was Drago, T94GB, with an impressive score of 228 including 193 countries and 35 zones using 100 watts and wire antennas. Complete results will appear in the June 2007 issue of CQ Magazine.

For 2007, the WARC bands are now permitted, so overall participation is expected to increase. For complete rules and submission information, please see our web site at:

Good luck and see you on the bands!"

These islands are the most remote islands from the main island of Papua New Guinea. They plan to be active for 6 days on each of the islands. If time permits, they will also make a stop at Kilinailau Island (OC-256). INTERESTING NOTE: "These islands are low lying and are suffering from the effects of global warming which is causing the sea level to rise. Takuu is especially vulnerable because it is also sinking due to the movement of the tectonic plates in the region. The net result is that the sea level is rising 20cm per year and the island is only 2 metres above the high tide level. 600 people live on this island. Nukumanu is also populated." QSL route/manager is to be announced later.

In the case of VK2IMD, operations are located close to Wahroongah, in the northern suburbs of Sydney, NSW, where Ernest Fisk of AWA received the first direct radio message from Britain to Australia in 1918. This was a telegram from the Australian Prime Minister Billy Hughes (who had just returned to Britain, having toured the World War I battlefields in France). It was sent by Marconi's station in Carnarvon, Wales. Visit the following Web pages for more info:

VQ9, CHAGOS ISLANDS
Jim, VQ9JC (aka ND9M), has returned to Diego Garcia for another four month tour and will resume operating as VQ9JC. He informs OPDX: "Operating time tends to run about 85% CW, 10% SSB, and 5% digital and is on 80-10 meters. I must take a boat from my ship (where I am one of the few remaining Radio Officers) to the island where the ham shack is located and usually cannot be QRV before 1200Z. (Local time is GMT +6 all year.) In order to be on the boat back to the ship, I must QRT by 1635z on Sundays through Thursdays, and by 1735z on Fridays and Saturdays, although I will occasionally stay overnight to work early morning DX." Jim was heard this past week on 20/15 meters CW.

QSLs go to ND9M (ex-WB9IHH); either by the Bureau or direct is OK. Jim states,

"My XYL will forward direct requests to me every three weeks or so, but mail typically takes about two weeks to get to the island once she mails it. As for direct QSL requests, I'm continually surprised to see the number of invalid IRCs coming through. A few are the older style that expired at the end of 2006, but the majority of them are invalid because they were not stamped by the issuing post office. I wouldn't mind 'eating' two or three, but I've received literally dozens so far this year. All QSL requests are answered of course, but requests that come with invalid IRCs will be answered via the buro. CU in the pileups! 73 for now, Jim, VQ9JC / ND9M"
