6m (&2m) EME DXpedition to ZK2 September 7-21, 2012
    Well, I wanted to provide as much advance time as I could so you could mark
your calendars and/or get everything in your 6m station optimized by the end of
August As those of you know who completed JT65A mode contacts with me on 6m EME
when I was in E51, 3D2 and 5W, I will do my best to set up and be active during
our common moon windows - especially during the optimum days of the month for 6m
EME. The callsign is not in hand yet (but assured by email), and the QTH has not
been finalized, but all the plane tickets have been purchased (as usual, any
contributions are VERY welcome), and the equipment (a KX3 portable transceiver
with compatible 6m amplifier) is in the works. As soon as the license is in
hand, the information will also be available under the callsign on In
the meantime, preliminary information about the DXpedition is here:
    I don't know if it will be possible to find a QTH that provides my usual
preference for a takeoff shot over water on moonrise. However, that is not
necessary to work NA stations during their moonsets (I will be elevating), so we
will get the ground gain on YOUR end for that And if a QTH with a good moonrise
shot (for EU moonset) cannot be found, it is quite likely that we will instead
wind up with a good moonset over the water for the EU moonrise.
    Currently, ZL1RS is planning to activate ZK2 on 2m EME during the same time
period, as we did together from E51 and 3D2; Bob's call will probably be his old
callsign of ZK2RS. More details will be posted on the above website as the
departure time at the end of August gets closer.
    I am very much looking forward to giving you a new one on the Magic Band! GL
and DX! VY 73, Lance. [MMMonVHF]

2012 edition of the Marathon 50
    Hello all, less than a month he began the 2012 edition of the Marathon 50
MHz I wanted to point you all the news inserted in this edition. As part of
the trial of the new frequency of 70 MHz has been entered for this category
only with the band to collect as much data (QSO) in order to provide an
important statistical basis for the University of L'Aquila, the promoter of
the trial. For this purpose has been added at the site of the log on-line with
the procedure for the management of that category.
    I hope to receive your requests for participation to the race of the 2012
Marathon, as shown on the site, and those who wish to participate in the
category 70 Mhz should indicate in the request for access to online log
including information on working conditions for such frequency.
    Thanking you in advance for your attention I wish you a Happy Easter to
you and your family.

Additional Titanic Centenery Information:
    Two special specials will be active from Belfast for the 100th anniversary
of the sinking of the RMS Titanic. GI100MGY will be active from The City Hall,
Belfast 7-10th of April as part of the councils Titanic 2012 festival. We'll
actually be setting up station in the council chambers.
    GI2012MGY will then run from 12-18th from onboard the SS Nomadic, the last
surviving link to the Titanic and the White Star line:
    We'll be operating mere yards from where the Titanic and indeed the Nomadic
where built AND where MTV will be staging their Titanic Sounds concert on the
    The two callsigns are "firsts" for the UK being the first time a regional
designator has been allowed to be used as a special event callsign, we expect
interest to be huge. GI100MGY will of necessity be a 100w station while
GI2010MGY will run the legal limit. We'll be QRV on all bands 80 - 10m using CW
and SSB, it is unlikely we'll do any digital modes as operating time is short
and we want to give as many as possible a chance to work us.
    See for details [Pete at the DX-Newsdesk]

*RAC Bulletin 2012-021E - Update on 60 Metres*

RAC has been pursuing channelized access to 60M since early 2010. Our
request was for an allocation identical to the US allocation, with one
additional unique Canadian channel, and with fewer restrictions (the
US allocations were restricted to USB voice only, with power and
antenna restrictions). Amateurs will recall that one of the rationales
for RAC requesting a 60M allocation was to enhance emergency
communications including cross-border interoperability. IC responded
by indicating that they were prepared to support access in synch with
US amateur allocation and regulations. In late 2011, in response to an
ARRL petition for change, the FCC issued a final Report and Order
that, once it has been published in the Federal Register, will result
in a change to the frequency of one of the channels and will enable
the use of CW and data modes in addition to USB voice. These features
had already been in the original RAC request. The FCC Report and Order
has cleared the way for Canada to move ahead with finalizing its
allocation to match the new US allocations, including the ability to
use CW and data modes. This allocation, which will be on a secondary
basis, requires a public consultation through the Canada Gazette,
which RAC anticipates will occur in the second quarter of 2012.

It is important that Canadian Amateurs comment on the draft once
released. RAC will continue to keep our members aware of the status of
this important initiative.

An important offer has been made by IC with regards to 60M. Industry
Canada is prepared to licence operators in channelized 60M operation
pending the results of the consultation process. The licencing process
will be managed out of ICs regional offices and is open to any
Canadian amateur. The process requires a formal licence application,
payment of a licence fee, and the use of a special call sign instead
of the licensee's amateur call sign. RAC regards this as an important
interim step allowing amateurs to get on the air in the 60M band as
soon as possible and thanks IC for this initiative. RAC`s objective,
however, is to ensure that Canadian amateurs have the 60M allocation
available to all amateurs as part of their amateur radio
certification, i.e. without licence applications, licence fees or
special call signs. RAC is cautiously optimistic that this will come
about in the summer of 2012.

If you wish to obtain a temporary, paid license to operate on 60M,
please contact your local Industry Canada Regional Office to complete
the application form.The total fee depends upon the date of your
application but in any case is less than $100.
