PRESS RELEASE NUMBER 5 - August 22, 2011

The 4W6A DXpedition is now less than one month away. Low-band
operators will be pleased to hear that the team now has a Titanex
V160E 87ft / 26.5m-high vertical antenna for use on 160m at 4W6A. The
antenna was shipped from the manufacturers in Germany and has arrived
in Darwin, Australia, from where it will be trans-shipped to Dili,
Timor-Leste, later this month.

The team had previously planned to use an 18m Spiderbeam pole as the
support for a 160m inverted-L. With the arrival of the Titanex
vertical, the 18m Spiderbeam pole will now be used for a full-size 80m
quarter-wave folded monopole vertical instead.

Other antennas include monoband quarter-wave verticals for 40, 30 and
17m kindly sponsored by Tony Burt, VK3TZ, of Rippletech Electronics in
Australia, a 2-element phased array for 40m, an Australian-made
Com-an-tena vertical for 10, 15 and 20m, a Butternut HF6V, a 15m
vertical dipole, and a G3TXQ Hexbeam made by team member Ant David,
MW0JZE. All the antennas will be located on the beach within a few
metres of the ocean.

Thanks to the generous sponsorship received from many DX foundations,
clubs and individual DXers, it has become possible to ship much of the
heavier equipment to Dili, Timor-Leste, in advance of the expedition.
The team is very grateful to all DX groups, companies and individuals
that have sponsored the expedition. All are listed with thanks on the
4W6A website at

4W6A will be QRV from Atauro Island (IOTA OC-232), Timor-Leste (East
Timor), from 16 to 26 September 2011. Activity will be on all bands 10
to 160 metres, using CW, SSB and RTTY with up to four stations
simultaneously. The QSL manager is M0URX, direct (SAE plus 1 IRC /
$2), via the bureau, or LoTW. The entire log will be uploaded to LoTW
as quickly as possible after the end of the operation or, if possible,
also during the DXpedition. Direct or bureau QSLs may also be
requested using the M0URX Online QSL Request Service (OQRS) at (there is also a link from the 4W6A website at

HA South Pacific Tour rescheduled

Due to difficulties in organizing and making arrangement for the
transportation to Banaba, we decided to reschedule the HA South
Pacific Tour DX pedition to January/February 2012.

We will leave Budapest on 8 January. The operation will start from
Tuvalu, on 12 January, as T2HA. We will be back to Fiji on 26 January
and 3 days of operation can be expected as 3D2HA. We will leave for
Tarawa, on 31 January. Operation from Kiribati will take place till 23
February. We will attempt to go over Banaba for 7-10 days within this
period. We will do our best to get over to Banaba, but the exact time
of T33HA Banaba operation can be announced from Tarawa only. Two
stations will be on the air from 160-10 meters bands on CW, SSB, RTTY
and some PSK modes.

The landing permit to Banaba, licenses and flight tickets to Fiji,
Tuvalu and Tarawa are in hand. The radios, antennas, PAs and other
technical stuff have already been put together and packed. The weight
of these packages exceeds the 100 kg (200 pounds). We will bring
everything with us, as excess baggages. This DX pedition does not an
expedition with dozens of operators, neither family holiday. It will
be a "simple two men show". However our 8 weeks long operating plan,
working from 3 different rare countries, make it very expensive. We
will cover the flight tickets, accommodations and other personal
expenses. The excess baggage fees and the transfer to Banaba are
extremely expensive. Thus we are seeking support from DX Foundations
and Organisation to help us to cover the extremely high transfer
expenses to Banaba and the excess baggage fees. Personal contributions
are also welcomed. More information on

73 de Laci - HA0HW
Herbie (G6XOU) will be QRV as GB65ISWL from 0000Z Friday
