* PLEASE NOTE: The report "could" contain "Pirate/SLIM" operations or
  more likely a "BUSTED CALLSIGN". As always, you never know - "Work
  First Worry Later" (WFWL).

3W, VIETNAM. Paul, WQ2N, will try to be active as 3W2N from here between
May 23rd and June 8th. He is there because of work, so operating the radio
is secondary (he may not find any time to operate at all, but he will try
his best). He plans to travel to different regions of Vietnam (South,
Central, and North). Activity will only be on 40/30/20/17/15 meters.
Paul mentions, "If you are not sure if it's me (on the air), E-mail me
to confirm a contact. I will respond ASAP." QSL via WQ2N.

4J/4K, AZERBAIJAN (News). Natig Gasimov, 4J5T, President of the Federation
of Radio Sport of Azerbaijan, informs OPDX: "Please, be informed that

SILENT KEYS.........
  4L5T - Mamuka Kordzakhia, 4L2M, President of The NARG (National Associ-
         ations Radioamateurs of Georgia) would like to inform OPDX readers
         that on April 23rd, Vakhtang (Vakho) Sakhokia, 4L5T, became a SK
         at the age of 61. He was killed by a car crashing into the side
         of his house. He has been a licensed radio amateur with the
         callsign UF6DG for some 40 years ago.

  WA2EWE - The ARRL Web Page reports the following (edited):
           "James McLaughlin, WA2EWE/T6AF, was one of several killed in
           Kabul, Afghanistan, on Wednesday, April 27th. News sources say
           that eight American troops and a US contractor died Wednesday
           after an Afghan military pilot opened fire during a meeting in
           an operations room of the Afghan Air Corps at the Kabul airport
           -- the deadliest episode to date of an Afghan turning against
           his coalition partners, officials with the NATO-led Inter-
           national Security Assistance Force (ISF) in Afghanistan said.
             Licensed since 1972, McLaughlin was a career US military
           officer. Bob Magnani, K6QXY, told the ARRL that McLaughlin was
           just in the US a week ago, visiting his family: 'His son Adam,
           KD6POE, works for me. He told me that his dad had been in
           Afghanistan and Iraq many times over the past few years, most
           currently serving as a flight instructor.'
             McLaughlin posted on his QRZ.com page that 'almost every day,
           I operate at around 1230-1430 UTC. Sometimes I am QRV until
           around 1500 UTC.' As of March 26, 2011, he had logged 4359 QSOs,
           most of them on RTTY and PSK. -- Thanks to Russ Bentson, K6KLY,
           CNN and Fox News for the information."

  K4RRF - It was reported that Ray Forrester, K4RRF, became a Silent Key
          (SK) on April 27th, at the age of 74. He was a proud Navy man
          and a patriot to the core. His Web site showed others that he
          was proud of his service to our country. Ray was, without a
          doubt, one of the finest DXers with over 300 countries to his
          credit. Along with his vast knowledge of amateur radio, Ray was
          also an expert fisherman, winning many local and national fishing
          tournaments. He was also heard in the pursuit of the many light-
          house activations put on by the Amateur Radio Lighthouse Society.
          With a QSL collection numbering in the thousands one could only
          marvel at the organizational efforts it took to catalogue the
          many thousands of QSL cards and certificates he had earned. He
          was a Life Member of the ARLHS, of 10-10 International, and a
          familiar voice on "The Early Bird Net" as well as many other
          nets.

  OPDX and its readers would like to send out our deepest sympathy to the
  family and friends of the above Silent Keys.

SV/A, MT. ATHOS (Visit by NE8Z). The following was sent to OPDX by Rick,
NE8Z, who recently visited Mt. Athos: "I have just returned from my 2 week
visit to Greece and pilgrimage to Mt. Athos. From the minute that I stepped
off the plane in Athens to the minute that I left Greece two weeks later I
was treated with true 'ham hospitality' by SV1JG, SV2ASP/A and SV2BOH.
  Monk Apollo, SV2ASP/A, greeted me with open arms in Mt. Athos. He spent
the entire week making sure that I was comfortable. I participated in all
of their church prayer services, and I was also able to work for 2 long days
with the monks cleaning crystal and silver chandeliers in preparation for
Easter services. Monk Apollo gave me the keys to his Land Rover and told me
to, 'go...explore...take your time'. I was able to visit many of the 20
monasteries on the peninsula.
  I was able to make a donation of various pieces of radio equipment to
his monastery which will allow him to operate from two or more portable
hilltop locations in Mt. Athos. SEMDXA members provided him with a new
MFJ Keyer, LDG antenna tuner and a Heil BM-10 headset. Budd, W3FF, and
his son Chris donated a complete Buddipole Antenna system. The ARRL donated
8 log books, band plan charts and a backpack for the portable equipment
transportation. Monk Apollo never asked for anything. I simply showed up
with the gifts for the monastery. Asian hams will soon be able to work Mt.
Athos for a new DXCC Entity. Both portable locations have clear 360 degree
views to all directions unlike the Docheiariou Monastery which has a large
mountain blocking signals to and from Asia..
  Father Apollo is a very busy monk. His radio time is limited because of
church services that last up to 8 hours per day, 7 days per week. After
services he is busy working on construction projects for the monastery.
  He is presently active on the radio daily between 1700-2100z on 160m,
30m, 17m and 12m CW-SSB-RTTY. He is building a new ham shack which will
be ready in a few months. Once he is in the new QTH he will install his
new 40 foot tubular tower and a Stepp-IR 3 element yagi that was donated
to him by Dominik, DL5EBE.
  The most exciting part of my trip was to be able to see precious relics
of Saints and the Miracle producing Icons of The Virgin Mary. Mt. Athos
is by far one of the most beautiful places on Earth. Please view the
SLIDESHOW on the SEMDXA website at:
       http://live.semdxa.org/tiki-list_file_gallery.php?galleryId=24
Thank you to everyone that made my pilgrimage to Mt. Athos a complete
success..... 73 Rick  NE8Z/HC1MD"
  ADDED NOTE BY EDITOR. If you would like to see more on Mt. Athos, go
to:                http://www.cbs.com/primetime/60_minutes
The program 60 minutes with Bob Simon was able to get rare access to
the monks and their ancient monasteries on this remote Greek peninsula.
There are two video clips available (a total of about 30 minutes) which
is very interesting. This story was aired on April 24th.

SV5, DODECANESE. Fred, PA1FJ, will be active as SV5/PA1FJ/P from Karpathos
(EU-001) between May 8-14th. Activity will be on 40-6 meters using CW
and SSB. He will use his Yaesu FT-817 into a Buddistick antenna and a 2x
5m dipole. QSL via the Dutch QSL Bureau.

T31, CENTRAL KIRIBATI (Update). The T31A went QRT on April 27th, at 1900z.
HOWEVER, some of the operators did operate on different bands using THEIR
OWN T31 callsigns. T31A made (according to their Web page) 31764 QSOs.
The T31A team should be back at Apia, Samoa, by the time you read this.
For updates on the T31A team, see the Web page at: http://www.T31A.com

T6, AFGHANISTAN (Reminder). Just a reminder that the Intrepid-DX Group
will conduct a DXpedition from Afghanistan for ten days in May. Due to
security concerns, the exact dates and location of the DXpedition will
not be announced until the eve of their activation. The team is closely
monitoring the security situation and events in the news coming from
Afghanistan. It was announced this past week on their Web page the
following: "This DXpedition is dedicated to the memory of our friend and
advisor, Jim McLaughlin, WA2EWE/T6AF, who was killed in Kabul, Afghanistan,
on Wednesday, April 27th, 2011. Jim was an honorary member of our team
and was planning to join us to operate with us. Jim, we will really miss
you!" For update on this operation, it is suggested to watch their Web
page at:           http://www.intrepid-dx.com/t6pse/index.php

T6, AFGHANISTAN (Update). Terence, K5TLL, continues to be active as T6TL
until July. He will be using an old Icom 706 and a dipole antenna (as well
as a Cushcraft R-7 vertical according to QRZ.com). Activity is on 40-10
meters using SSB and the Digital modes. Frequencies are listed on QRZ.com
and he suggests to listen for him between 0300-0500z. QSL via N4FF. Watch
QRZ.com for updates.

UT1FG/MM VOYAGE WRAP-UP. Captain Yuri Bodrov, UT1FG/MM, wrapped up his
6 month voyage that took him across the Atlantic Ocean 3 times and around
the Cape of Good Hope in South America and through the Panama Canal on
his ship, the Mottler. He operated on the HF bands, 6 meters and also
activated a few hundred grids to the delight of many satellite operators
in Europe, South and North America. Walt, WP4T, and his ham radio family
met up with him in San Juan, Puerto Rico, his final port before flying
home. Captain Bodrov gave them the red carpet tour. Pictures from their
visit are now available on the K8YSE Web site at: http://www.papays.com/sat
QSL direct or to his manager UX0FY.

V8, BRUNEI. John, 9M6XRO, will once again be active as V85/9M6XRO from
Darussalam, Brunei (OC-088), between May 4-9th. Activity will be mainly
CW, but also possibly some RTTY or SSB. John states V85 does not have an
allocation for 6m. As before, John will be running 400w to a Butternut
HF6V up about 100 ft. on the hotel roof. He mentions, "BTW during my
visit to Brunei in March, I made close to 2500 Q's with a high percentage
on RTTY. I have been asked by some Southern Hemisphere stations to look
for them on 80m CW so I will give that my best shot on this trip :-)."
QSL via M0URX, direct (w/SAE plus 1 IRC/2 USDs), by
the Bureau, or LoTW. Alternatively, QSLs may be requested using M0URX's
OQRS form at:         http://www.m0urx.com/qsl-request-form
ADDED NOTE BY 9M6XRO: John will be visiting the U.K. and I.O.M between
May 19th and June 1st. He states, "I plan to spend the first part until
the 28th in the Isle of Man - then the latter part in Ayrshire. I hope
to put GD3OOK on the air from home base for a last time!"

VK0, MACQUARIE ISLAND. Denis, ZL4DB, will be active as VK0/ZL4DB from
Macquarie Island (AN-005) beginning late April through late July. He
will be on the air thanks to assistance from Kevin, VK0KEV. Activity will
be limited to his free time and will be only on SSB. PLEASE NOTE: Denis
is new to pile-ups, so please go easy on him. Because he only operates
on SSB, Kevin might convert him to RTTY! QSL via ZL4PW, by the Bureau
or direct (see QRZ.com). No online-log, eQSL or LoTW.

ZD8, ASCENSION ISLAND (Update). German operators Wolf/DK1IP, Rainer/DL7OR,
Gerd/DJ4KW, Arno/DL1CW and Werner/DJ9KH will be active as ZD8D from Garden
Cottage (located 700m up Green Mountain which is the oldest building on
the island dating back to the 1820s), Ascension Island (AF-003), between
July 24th and August 9th. Activity will be on 160-10 meters, mainly on
the Digital modes with some CW and SSB later. They will be using Elecraft
K3s. The team plans to participate in the RSGB IOTA Contest (July 30-31st).
The team is seeking sponsors, especially for an amplifier. Their Web page
is now available online at:      http://www.zd8d.de/index.php?home

VK9, LORD HOWE ISLAND (Update/Change). Members of the Hellenic Amateur
Radio Association of Australia (HARAOA Group) are planning a major DX-
pedition to Lord Howe Island (OC-004) as VK9HR for 10 days. Originally,
the operation was scheduled to take place between July 8-17th, but now
it will take place between July 23rd and August 2nd. This means that the
VK9HR team can now participate in the 2011 RSGB IOTA Contest (July
30-31st). Also, the VK9HR QSL Manager is now David, EB7DX. For more
details, visit the VK9HR Web Page at:         http://www.vk9hr.com
