Special Event Station - VO1AA - April, 25, 2012

The Society of Newfoundland Radio Amateurs (SONRA) will make history on April

first wireless signal at Signal Hill, Newfoundland. This April 25th, SONRA will
celebrate the event with making an Amateur Radio contact with Princess Elettra
(Marconi) who will be in Bologna Italy to celebrate her father's birthday. It is

RAC Bulletin 2012-015E - Earle Smith, VE6NM - SK

It is with regret that Radio Amateurs of Canada has learned that Earle Smith,
VE6NM, a RAC past President, passed away peacefully after an illness on Friday,
February 24th.

Earle had served as President of RAC from late 2004 to the end of 2007 and was
well respected by amateur radio operators both within Canada and
Internationally. He was a gentleman and friend to all hams and a strong advocate
for amateur radio and for the Radio Amateurs of Canada.

All who knew Earle respected him as a leader, a friend and a force for good in
the amateur radio community. We will miss him. The amateur community can post
condolences which will be forwarded to the family at

Geoff Bawden, VE4BAW
President and Chairman of Radio Amateurs of Canada
Neumayer Station III will continue to be on the air throughout the upcoming
Antarctic winter: Lars, DL1LLL, is the radio operator of the 32nd wintering
team, and he is active until February 2013, using the call sign DP0GVN. His main
operating mode is PSK31, but he wants to try other modes later. QSL cards will
be handled by Dominik, DL5EBE. Lars' online logbook is available at [antarctic list]
    Joe, W8GEX released an announcement this afternoon on his latest DXpedition

    "Joe, W8GEX and Craig K9CT are pleased to announce they are planning another
DXpedition to a rare DX entity. Joe and Craig were the co-leaders of the very
successful PJ7E DXpedition on 10-10-10. Before that, they were part of the team
that re-activated Midway K4M in 2009.

    This DXpedition will be to Swains Island in September 2012. Swains ranks
number 31 on the DX Magazine Most Wanted Survey and number 30 on Club Log's Most
Wanted list. Because of the anticipated demand, a highly experienced team of 20
operators has been formed. The team will operate six stations over a 14 day
period, from 160 to 6 meters on all modes, using the callsign NH8S. Great
emphasis will be put on Europe where it is most needed.

    Team members include AA4NN, DJ7JC, DL3DXX, I8NHJ, K5AB, K6MM, K6TD, K9CT,

    Swains is a privately owned island and the only way to get there is from
American Samoa via ship. The time frame of this operation may not be the best
for the low bands, but dates are dictated by transportation and weather. The
team of international operators will first gather in Honolulu and then travel to
American Samoa together. Landing permission has been granted for the tent and
generator operation by the owner for this timeframe.

    Our website, ( developed by team member John, K6MM,
will provide updates as they become available. There are no communication
systems on Swains, but logs will be uploaded daily via satellite phone. Later,
the group will also have an OQSL link on the website for easy QSLing.

    All equipment must be sent from the US via cargo ship in June. Location,
transportation, island costs, and other logistics make this a costly trip.
Therefore, donations are very much appreciated. Details of how to donate to help
defray our expenses are on the website.

    We want to thank ICOM, who will be supplying IC7600s for our use. Thanks
also to Joe, AA4NN, who will be the QSL manager, and to Carl, N4AA of the DX
Magazine who will sponsor the log search.

    73, Carl, N4AA [K1XN]
    At the Spanish radiohams' request, in connection with His Majesty The King
of Spain Contest (23-24 June, 2012), the World Castles Weekend will be moved
forward to the third weekend of June (16-17 June, 2012). [RN1CW]
