UPCOMING METEOR-SHOWERS: SEPTEMBER 2009
Even if no big meteor showers hit the Earth in September, this month is still of interest for MS enthusiasts. Sporadic meteors flux is at its annual maximum in this period, thus providing relatively good rates especially during morning hours. Read more at our Prop.Page: www.mmmonvhf.de/ms.php [MMMonVHF]

EME: Version 2.0 of GJTRACKER is now available, and includes a fairly detailed world Field Locator map to show what parts of the world can see the moon (or any other celestial object). This feature is accessed by selecting the "Real Time" mode when you run the program. The GJHELP.pdf file has been updated to reflect the new addition to the Real Time window:
The map redraws itself every minute. Sorry, but it is not currently a user-sizable map. The screen size setting of 1280x768 pixels on my laptop is just big enough to show the entire world map at once.

You may have seen the GB50ATG call on your screens recently. This special event call is to celebrate the Golden Jubilee of BARTG, the British Amateur Radio Teledata Group. Check the BARTG web site, www.bartg.org.uk for details of the Golden Jubilee Award, special QSL cards and also wall plaques. GB50ATG will be on the air until the end of June 2010 with several BARTG members sharing the operating from various locations.
For the month of September the call will be used by John GW4SKA from his usual address in Wales. This will include operation in the CQWW contest, so if you work GB50ATG in a contest *this month* it should count as a GW multiplier.

5N - NIGERIA
Bodo, 5N0OCH writes: "I uploaded a short video clip with impressions of my 5N activites to YouTube (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sztmmg7FJLs). We will have finished the works at the new antenna for Voice of Nigeria in about three weeks. This antenna of the type HP-RCA 4/4/h is the biggest HF antenna in the world and is already in operation at
several radio stations. It has 32 stacked dipoles, 16 each for 6-15 MHz and for 15-26 MHz. The antenna has a gain of about 18-24 dBi and I will be able to use it for amateur radio for a few days. Many are interested in working 5N on 160m but unfortunately this antenna does not cover this band. However I plan to put up a 40m long vertical connected to the complete ground network of the radio station by the end of September. More plans include a beverage to Europe. Unfortunately I cannot promise to realize all my plans because priority lies on my work. Be sure that I will do my best to activate the lowbands. Many greetings from Abuja! Vy 73 de Bodo, 5N0OCH".

CY0 - SABLE ISLAND (Update/Postponed).
OPDX has received the following press release on Friday, August 28th (edited):
"The Sable Island DXpedition scheduled for October 19, 2009, by Randy - N0TG, Ron - AA4VK, and Murray - WA4DAN is being placed on 'hold'.
Unfortunately, Randy's son, Carter (who was part of the KP1 and KP5 team in 1992), has developed kidney cancer which has spread to the lungs. Although there will be challenging days ahead for Carter and the family of N0TG, we trust the prayers of friends will strengthen this family and successfully bring all through this trial.
The team appreciates the many sponsors who were willing to provide their support, even though CY0 was not at the top of the most needed list, the support of the DX Community from around the world, and the interests shown by the many DX'ers that 'signed' the website Guestbook.
We will leave the website up and updates will be posted from time to time on Carter's progress, as well as our plans to reschedule the DXpedition to CY0. <http://www.cy0dxpedition.com/>
Our hope is that Carter will beat this disease and be able to join us at Sable Island. We do consider this a 'hold' and we intend to reschedule as health concerns permit.
Thanks again to our ham radio friends for your support. We wish the best for Randy's son Carter and all the Rowe family. Randy's (N0TG) contact information is listed on QRZ.com....... Thanks for your
prayers." [OPDX Bulletin]
