* 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).
17M INTERFERENCE RESOLVED. Chuck, W3ON, informs OPDX and its readers:
"I just received an E-mail from the Laura at the FCC regarding the CW
transmissions heard on 18085 kHz over the last several weeks, that the
issue has been resolved. The FCC received a request from the ARRL, and
others such as me, to investigate the transmissions. It found that the
transmissions were from a transmitter operating in the state of California.
The FCC visited the radio site, and the transmissions ceased. Laura stated
that the transmissions were inadvertent. No further details were furnished.
When I checked this morning, July 22nd, the strange CW signals are gone.
On a personal note, I am glad to hear that the FCC does react to requests
sent by email. In my case, I received an E-mail within a few hours from
Laura, at the FCC, that they had been contacted about the matter and were
investigating the incident. This was my first attempt at writing to the
FCC about anything. : ) "
5X, UGANDA. Only a few more days to work Stewart, GM4AFF, as 5X1SF from
Kampala. He will be going QRT on July 29th. Activity has been mainly on
20 meters at various times using CW and SSB. QSL via GM4FDM.
7P8, LESOTHO. Arnold, WB6OJB, will once again be active as 7P8JK from
here between September 15-22nd. Activity last time was on the HF bands,
40-10 meters using mostly SSB with some CW. QSL direct to his home
9H, MALTA (Update). Jasper, PB2JJ, will be active as 9H3JN from Malta
between September 2-14th. Activity will be on 80-10 meters, mostly CW
and some SSB also. QSL via his home callsign.
EA6, BALEARIC ISLANDS. Jordi, EA3PT, will be active as EA6/EA3PT from
Menorca Island (EU-004) between August 8-21st. Activity will be holiday
style (at least 1 hour of the day) on 40/20/17/15/12/10 meters SSB only.
He really likes 17 meters. QSL via LoTW or to his home callsign.
EI, IRELAND. Members of the Dalkey Island Contest Group will be active
as EI1DD from the Main island of Ireland (EU-115) during the RSGB IOTA
Contest. Operators mentioned are Paul/EI2CA, Peter/EI7CC, Sean/EI7CD,
Séamus/EI8BP, Ger/EI8CC, Aidan/EI8CE and Norbert/EI8KD/LX1NO. QSL only
via the EI Bureau.
GB5/GW8, WALES (IOTA Op!). Members of the Barry Amateur Radio Society
(B.A.R.S.) will be on Flat Holm Island (EU-124) for the RSGB IOTA Contest
(July 30-31st). The B.A.R.S. group will on the island Thursday, July 28th,
for 5 days. Prior to the contest, the callsign will be GB5FI. During the
IOTA Contest they will use GW8K. QSL via GW0ANA. HISTORICAL NOTE: Glyn,
GW0ANA, Chairman of B.A.R.S., informs OPDX that it was this island that
Marconi came to in May 1897. He successfully transmitted a CW signal
between Flat Holm in Wales to Brean Down in Somerset, England. Thus making
this transmission the world's first DX and first IOTA DXpedition (as
Marconi came from Italy to Wales).
GI, NORTHERN IRELAND. Operators Declan/EI9HQ, Ger/EI4GXB, Rory/EI4DJB,
Peter/GI4VIV, GI0WHO and Victor/GI4ONL will be active as GI8P from
Rathlin Island (EU-122) during the RSGB IOTA Contest (July 30-31st).
GJ, JERSEY. Members of the Jersey Contest Group will be active as GJ2A
from Jersey Island (EU-013) during the RSGB IOTA Contest (July 30-31st).
QSL via LoTW, or direct to GJ3DVC.
GM, SCOTLAND (IOTA & SCOTIA Ops!). Andre, GM3VLB, will once again try to
activate some of the SCOTIA islands (SCOTtish Island Award) he missed
last year during a 3 week DXpedition in September to the two IOTA groups
-- Orkney (IOTA EU-009, SCOTIA OI14) and Shetland (IOAT EU-012, SCOTIA
SI11) Islands. Here is his proposed "plan of action" in relation to
Shetland. Andre only has 6 of the 26 designated SCOTIA islands still to
activate. XYL Veronica and Andre will be in Shetland from early morning
July 28th to late evening August 5th. It is his plan to attempt to activate
all 6 islands. His proposed, "ideal" plan of action is as follows, but
we must add that all will depend on the WX and availability of boatmen.
As in previous attempts, there will almost certainly be changes to the
plan. It is naturally impossible to suggest proposed start/finish times.
Andre suggests that the best solution is to monitor 14257.5 kHz +/- QRM.
He states, "There will be NO overnight/camping operation...I consider that
at 73+, and after 15 years and 271 islands, I have "done my bit" in that
respect...Where are the keen, young, activators ??!!" Planned schedule
for Shetland is as follows:
July 28th - Papa Little (SI14); his 3 or 4th attempt!! Willing boatman,
but no chance if winds come from a southerly direction.
July 29th - Balta (SI25); Friendly, willing boatman [took Alex and Andre
to Linga (SI23) last year]... has to fit us into his working
July 30th - Hascosay (SI21); Again, a willing boatman...skipper of an
inter-island ferry... he'll do what he can to help..hopeful.
July 31st - Bigga (SI19); This is the big unknown...have seen no boats
in the area, have no contacts, but will try everything. Andre
may end up doing this one before SI21, if he sees an
August 1st - West Linga (SI16); This needs to be tackled from Whalsay
(SI15)...No problems (other than WX) anticipated...friendly
fishermen on Whalsay...only WX dependent..Fairly certain he
will spend Sunday and Monday nights on Whalsay in the old
campervan, so Andre may well activate SI15 also, although
this is not a prime target, as he has previously activated
this one with Alex G(M)0DHZ.
August 2nd - Linga (SI17); No problem with this one. Willing fisherman;
only WX-dependent, as ever...If not this day, then another.
These six are the main and final targets in SHETLAND (EU-012). Andre
has allowed 3 extra days before sailing onwards to ORKNEY (EU-009), early
evening on Friday, August 5th. WX-permitting, he hopes to take a short
flight over to OUT SKERRIES on Thursday, August 4th (out at 0800z, back
in at 1530z) - not a SCOTIA island, but (Andre hasn't told his XYL
Veronica), he will take a rig and the "Islander" antenna, and beg for
ORKNEY (EU-009): Andre's current plan is to be on Orkney from very
late evening August 5th, until early morning August 18th. He has 9 SCOTIA
"OI" islands on his "wanted" list - the last 9 to complete all 200 SCOTIA
islands (assuming he is successful in Shetland). All, Andre can say is that
he will attempt as many as possible. At the time of writing, Andre does
not even have a proposed "plan of action" yet. He will be working on this
over the next few days. As Andre says, "I will try to activate as many as
possible in the time available... Andre needs, and will target, Swona
(OI01), Switha (OI03), Copinsay (OI12), Muckle Green Holm (OI20), Linga
Holm (OI21), Eynhallow (OI24), Holm of Scockness (OI26), Faray (OI28) and
Calf of Eday (OI29).
HK0/M, MALPELO ISLAND (Update OPDX.1010 & OPDX.1016). According to the
HK0NA Web page <http://hk0na.com> three new members have been added to
the DXpedition, and the team is now complete. The "Colombian Flora and
Fauna" has approved the increase to 15 operators. The three new members
are John/VE7CT, Manu/LU9ESD and Jerry/WB9Z, and they will join the team
of Jorge/HK1R (Team Leader), Jahm/HK1T, Pedro/HK1X, Franz/DJ8ZB, Bolmar/
HK1MW, Jaime/HK1N, Alexis/YV5SSB/6, Olli/OH0XX, Pedro/HK3JJH, Gregg/W6IZT,
Dr.San/K5YY and Bob/K4UEE. Also approved this week is the start date of
the DXpedition to begin on January 22nd, 2012, unless nothing extraordinary
happens, as well as a list of equipment and all activities that will be
realized on the island by the DXpedition team. During the second week of
August (2011), there will be a final meeting between the "Colombian Flora
and Fauna", Fundacion Malpelo, SEA WOLF vessel and the "Dxcolombia Amateur
Radio Club" (DXARC) to workout the final details. They hope that they will
have the written permit at the end of August or beginning of September.
Also mentioned on the Webpage is that ELECRAFT Radios is a new sponsor
for their DXpedition. For more details and updates, visit the HK0NA Web

QRP DXCC STANDING LIST. Lee Hiers, AA4GA, states, "Since the ARRL only
issues QRP DXCC certificates, but does not maintain official standings
boxes for QRP, and because I couldn't find such a standings box elsewhere,
I've decided to maintain a list on my Web site at: http://www.aa4ga.com
Interested QRP DXers are invited to click on the 'QRP DXCC' link on my
site and submit their information to me for inclusion. Hopefully over
time, it will serve as valuable inspiration for other QRP ops."
