Landing on Rockall impossible
The skipper of the "Elinca" did not allow a landing on Rockall.
The waves are too high; even launching a Zodiac is impossible.
A very sad Theo, ON4ATW told us at 09.00 UT they will have to come back
to Scotland. "The weather is worsening by the hour and the weather
forecast for the coming days does not give any hope" he told us by
satphone. For tomorrow 5 Bft winds are forecasted with gusts up to 80
km/h.
We are all very disappointed that after all these preparations a landing
was not possible. However we learned a lot about all the aspects of
putting up a DXpedition. One way or another this knowledge will be used.

WE7G - Wayne - May 2, 2009 to May 2, 2009 - CW Only
One day trip in 7th Land QSO Party starting 1300Z Saturday only. Davis,
Weber, Morgan, Summit and hopefully Rich. Can't get to Rich easily this
trip as the road over the mountain remains closed. Might have to go to
Uintah WY to get into Rich. Will try to get over to run Wasatch after
Summit, we'll see. Will return in afternoon from Rich, Morgan, Weber and
Davis. Will probably stay on 20 as it seems to be in the best shape
recently. Listen for me amongst all the other State QSO parties. I'll
try to hang around the top end of 20 at 14.050 or so. We'll see. The wx
is supposed to be poor, but the roads should still be clear [no snow at
least]. Send email requests to we7g *at* arrl.net

BITS & PIECES -

Helsinki
April 29, 2009
For Immediate Release:
YOUNG BRIT CAME OUT AS WINNER OF RADIO ARCALA ESSAY CONTEST

It was in February 2009 when the team at Radio Arcala, OH8X launched
an essay contest to get some fresh ideas from today's youth and
their elders to boost  recruitment to the ranks of Amateur Radio. Great
participation was ensured, and determining the winners took some effort
from a multinational jury representing six nations.

A 19-year old Briton, Mark Dumpleton, 2E0NCG came out as winner by a
fair margin while two U.S. hams, John Scott Anderson, KC9OQO and Brian
Wood, W0DZ , finished in second and third place respectively.
Argentinian Diego Salom, LU8DX was recognized for his submission of the
best Spanish language piece.

You can read Mark's piece and his interview at www.radioarcala.com
under the "Young People Terms" button and get your personal inspiration
to do your share for Amateur Radio.
