5Z, KENYA. Sig, NV7E, is active as 5Z4EE from Nairobi, and has announced
that he will be in the CQWW DX SSB Contest (October 29-30th) and the ARRL
DX SSB Contest (March 3-4th, 2012) as a Single-Op/All-Band/High-Power
entry. QSL via NV7E, by the W7 Bureau or direct using the address on (see details). He DOES NOT use LoTW.

9Y, TRINIDAD AND TOBAGO. Jim, N6TJ, will be active as 9Y4W from Scar-
borough, Tobago Island (SA-009, WLOTA 0412), during the CQWW DX CW Contest
(November 26-27th) as a Single-Op entry. QSL via DL4MDO, direct or by
the Bureau.

E5, SOUTH COOK ISLANDS (Airmail Deliveries To The Islands). Jim, E51JD,
from Rarotonga Island sent the following to OPDX about the airmail he
receives (edited): "To The Editor -- For some time I have been intrigued
at how long it takes airmail to reach my mail box, particularly some of
the mail posted in USA, and I decided to record details of QSL mail received
between 11 and 27 June 2011. Mail from Italy, UK, Slovenia, Spain, Czech
Republic, France, Greece, Germany & Ukraine took two to three weeks from
date of mailing compared to that from USA which with two exceptions took
at least a month and in most cases a number of months to reach me. Some
examples include that posted in Greer, SC, on 11th Feb. & Gilbert, AZ,
on 13th Oct. 2010 received on 11th June, that posted in Melbourne, FL,
on 10th Oct. 2010 received on 20th June together with mail posted in
Melrose, FL, on 29th March and Pacifica, CA, on 25th March.  Mail received
on 30th June included one posted in San Jose, CA, on 15th November 2010
and others posted in Bakersfield, CA, on 14th April, Melrose, FL, on
21 March, Austin, TX, on 5th February and Wichita Kansas on 31st March.
The mail I picked up on 27 June included one mailed in Springfield, LA,
on 29th March.
  Apart from the occasional public holiday our post office is open Monday
to Friday and my mail box is cleared daily - I have not listed the U.S.
mail which took less than two months to reach me.
  This is hardly DX news but I thought that I should try to get the
information out to operators who may have been waiting some months to
receive a response to QSL cards. Personally I am not worried as I do
not chase the cards, but any card I receive which includes the addressed
envelope and return postage is replied to.
  In the hope of getting maximum coverage I have sent this message to
two other DX Newsletters.
  Thanks and 73s

  SA-045.  (Update) Excerpts from a press release state that operators
           Orlando/PT2OP and Fred/PY2XB will be active from Parazinho
           Biologic Reserve in Bailique Archipelago between August 17-24th.
           Activity will be on 40-10 meters using CW, SSB and the Digital
           modes. They will use the IOTA and DX frequencies. The callsigns
           have been issued as PQ8OP (Orlando) and PQ8XB (Fred). Orlando
           will mainly operate SSB and the Digital modes while Fred will
           use mostly CW and also the Digital modes. They will also have
           6m capabilities and will monitor the band for openings. The
           equipment will be Icoms 706 and 7000 with a 400w THP amplifier.
           Antennas will be an SteppIR vertical (40-6m) and a Zepp (40-
           10m). Power will be off a Diesel generator. Eventually, during
           generator off periods, batteries will be used. The Parazinho
           Bilologic Reserve is an biologic sanctuary. Only an Environ-
           mental Ministery/State Secretary outpost is available on the
           site. The site is about 300km straight line far from French
           Guyana border. Few meters from the outpost there is an automatic
           Lighthouse run by Brazilian Navy. So this operation will not
           only account for a rare IOTA but also for WLOTA awards (L-1123)
           and ALRHS (number awaiting confirmation). QSO is valid for
           the Brazilian Islands Diploma DIB AP-03; Brazilian Lighthouses
           Diploma DFB AP-03 and South American Lighthouses Diplom DFA.
           The team will arrive in Macapa, capital city of the state of
           Amapa, on August 14th. Then on the 16th it will sail to the
           Biologic Reserve. The boat ride takes 12 hours to Vila Progresso
           - a small fishermen community, plus 30 minutes in a motor boat
           to the reserve. Boat ride schedule will depend on tides that
           can get amplitudes as high as 10 meters. The team will take
           food, water and essential goods as well a spare generator and
           fuel for the entire period. The team will return on the 25th
           to Macapa, depending on the tide levels. It is to be confirmed,
           that on August 26th, activity is planned from São José de
           Macapa Fortress, the biggest historic Brazilian fortress.
           Valid for DFH Historical Brazilian Fortress with code DFH AP-01.
           PQ8OP cards will be handled by PT2OP and PQ8XB cards by PT7WA.

J45, DODECANESE. Members of the SV9 DX Team with co-operation of SV5BYR
will be active as J45K from Kasos Island (EU-001) during the RSGB IOTA
Contest (July 30-31st). The first team with the equipment will be on the
island Tuesday, July 26th. Operations will start next day on 160-6 meters,
as well as 2 meters band during weekend. QSL via SV9DJO and LoTW.

JT, MONGOLIA. Frank, DD0CW, is now active as JT1FDB from Ulaanbaatar
until the first week of August. According to his Web page, he
will be active as JT1FDB/7 most of the time from Bugat near Erdenet
(Locator: ON19UB) about 400 km NW of Ulaanbaatar. He will be from
Ulaanbaatar only during the first week and last week. Frank has per-
mission to be active on all HF bands (160-6m) and VHF/UHF bands using
all modes, but he prefers CW. Activity over the past weekend was on
15 and 6 meters. He will use a FT-100D with a GP and Dipole antennas.
QSL via DD0CW.

KD0, UNITED STATES (Lighthouse Op!). Steve, KD0ETC, will be on a kayak
expedition to the Apostle Islands National Lakeshore, Wisconsin, in Lake
Superior, and possibly activate the following three lighthouses between
July 30th and August 5th:     Sand Island (USA 722 and WI018L)
                              Raspberry Island (USA 688 and WI019)
                              Devils Island (USA 228 and WI015)
Operating time will between 1500-2100z. His base camp will be on York
Island (WI017). Devils Island is maybe iffy since he is kayaking. Activity
will mainly be on 20 meters SSB only. However, there may be some 40
meters in the evening using a larger loading coil on his vertical, but
he doubts that he will be at a lighthouse then. QSL direct only to KD0ETC
with SASE, please.
