           OPDX this past week that Orlando/PT2OP and Fred/PY2XB have
           received authorization from the environmental authorities
           of the State of Amapá to have a DXpedition to the Bailique
           Archipelago (DIB AP-01, ARLHS BRA-009, WLOTA L-1123 and DFB
           AP-04) and lighthouse. The Amapá State is in the extreme
           northern part of Brazil, and the islands in SA-045 are located
           in the northern hemisphere. Amapá has few hams, and the state
           is highly requested by colleagues who wish to achieve the
           diploma "Worked All Brazil" (WAB). It has been a long time
           since an Island in IOTA  SA-045 was activated. The islands
           are part of a biological reserves under environmental pro-
           tection. The second fortnight of August was chosen due to the
           HF propagation forecast, the climate conditions of the region
           and the moon season which affects the sea tide and the op-
           portunities to reach the islands. The callsigns will be PQ8OP
           (QSL via PT2OP) and PQ8XB (QSL via PT7WA). More details will
           be forthcoming.

SILENT KEY. Peter, HB9PL, informs OPDX that Pierre Pasteur, HB9QQ, became
a "Silent Key" (SK) on Saturday, June 11th, after a short but ferocious
illness at the age of 80. Peter states, "Pierre was a multi-faceted Ham
who was not only a seasoned DX’er but a highly regarded expert in VHF/UHF
work and the 'magic band'. He was author of numerous technical papers
and a book about VHF/UHF 'Operating Modes and Techniques'. Unforgettable
were his VHF and EME expeditions to HB0, 8Q7, V51 and lectures of these
adventures at many conventions and other Ham gatherings. Pierre achieved
the WAC on 144 mc EME in 1984 and the DXCC on 50 MHz in 2002. An ex-
Maritime Radio Operator, he was an Honorary Member of USKA (Union of
Swiss Short Wave Amateurs) and a number of other distinguished societies
in Amateur Radio. He leaves his wife Inge, a son and a daughter. He will
forever remain in our hearts." OPDX and its readers would like to send
out our deepest sympathy to the family and friends of HB9QQ.

ST0, SOUTHERN SUDAN (Look for more Ops!). Paul, N6PSE, Co-Leader for the

by the UN. Currently, the feeling is that may be mid-August, 2011.
  If you are a good CW or SSB operator, strong team player and have a
sense of adventure and would seriously consider going with us to Juba,
South Sudan via Cairo, please contact me directly at:
  We are taking the bulk of our gear with us. This is a well planned

on having fun at the same time." The official Web site is at:
