*** EDITOR'S SPECIAL NOTE: Some of you may have noticed that the bulletins
have been being published from Murfreesboro, TN. I am doing this
remotely and it is not easy. I am here in TN because my daughter
gave birth to my FIRST GRANDCHILD - Lliam Tyler Jones (9 lbs 6 oz.
21 3/4 in. - on September 27th). I am now a GRANDPA... It will seem
that I will be making many trips to TN now....

HK0NA MALPELO ISLAND 2012 DXPEDITION PRESS RELEASE (Dated Sept. 30th):
"The Malpelo 2012 DXpedition is pleased to announce that the HK0NA operating
team has added two new operators, both physicians..W0GJ and K9SG. The team
now consists of 18 operators representing eight countries.
Two members of the team will travel to Malpelo for a reconnaissance visit
in late October. The purpose is to check out possible operating sites and
make final decisions on the type and placement of antennas. We want to
try to have antennas oriented for all parts of the DX world. Also, some
equipment will be moved onto the island and stored until our DXpedition
begins in late January 2012.
Every effort is being made to extend the length of time available for
operating. This requires coordination with the authorities and agencies
that oversee the island and the charter boat company. It appears that
we can get to the island one day earlier and may have the option of
staying a few extra days. Of course, our costs will rise accordingly.
The current plan has the team QRV on or about January 23rd for 12-14 days.
Operations are planned on 160 through 6 meters on CW, SSB and one Digital
Several of the Elecraft K3s are already in Colombia. The other K3s,
five KPA500 amplifiers, antennas from DX Engineering, and Spiderbeam 65
foot masts for the low band antennas will be shipped soon. The Alpha
8410s are on their way.
The Malpelo team is paying all their transportation expenses to/from
Colombia and putting up about one-half of all the DXpedition costs. To
cover the remainder of our expenses, your financial assistance is kindly
requested. Contributions are being sought from DX Foundations, DX Clubs
and individual DXers. You may contribute directly to DXARC (Colombia)
or to K4UEE (North America), DJ9ZB (Europe), or JA1ELY (Asia/JA). See
our website: www.hk0na.com for further information on how you can help.
N2OO and the SJDXA have graciously agreed to handle QSL duties.
We plan periodic press releases with information of interest. Also,
watch the website for breaking news.
Thanks, , Jorge Prieto, HK1R, DXpedition leader

OJ0X SEPTEMBER 1 REPORT (Press Release by OH2BH): There is no doubt
autumn is approaching the North and the weather is becoming rather
unstable. The second group - OH1TV, OH2BAD, OH2BO, OH5BM - has ex-
perienced the full variety while radio propagation hit the rock bottom.
It is not often that Northern Lights are visible on the latitude of
Market Reef - now the Aurora Borealis was seen on the last day of the
German group but also the current second week's Finnish group. There
were predictions of a recovery of band conditions for this weekend –
but no signs of it yet.
Worse is expected again on the horizon, and the forecast for next
Tuesday is high winds. Hence the group for the third week will need
to travel to Aland Islands early to be stand-by for a potential
If you are still in need of some band points, you may watch the
weather reports at http://www.g3txf.com/dxtrip/OJ0X/OJ0X.html direct
from the Market Reef automatic weather station. There the Titanex
160/80M vertical may be taken down today as preparation for early
departure as well as for poor propagation on the low bands.
But the spirits remain high among the group as they have passed
30,000 QSO and eagerly wait for 10M to open up. Nevertheless, the
third week's group - OH1ND, OH2BH, SM0W and SM6U - may take advantage
of any 10 & 12M openings to all regions of the world.
OJ0X also experienced some curious magic as UPS delivered a new RF
choke for their burned Alpha 91B amplifier. Thanks to quick action
from Acom Bulgaria, the choke arrived in Finland the following day.
Unfortunately, UPS’s one-day service anywhere in Europe did not extend
to Market Reef. Hopefully the next group will be able to bring the
third amplifier back on line.
Are you guys in the audience having any fun yet? With 60,000 hits
at QRZ.COM, some of you are still there. The band slot race is still
there with ON7GB and LZ1NG leading Europe with 20 points while Asia's
JA4DND is close behind (19). The US East Coast is suffering from poor
propagation with K5EK running far behind at 14 points. Just enjoy the
log search facility operated by Nigel, G3TXF www.clublog.org/charts/?c=OJ0X
but save any queries until the operation is finished."
PJ2, CURACAO. Andy, DK5ON, will be active as PJ2/DK5ON from Curacao
(SA-099) between March 12-30th (2012). Activity will be on 40-6 meters
using CW, SSB, RTTY and PSK. QSL via his home callsign.
PJ4, BONAIRE. Wim, ON4CIT, will be active as PJ4J from Bonaire (SA-006)
between October 27th and November 9th. Activity will focus on RTTY
and SSB. QSL via his home callsign.
PLANNING DXPEDITION AROUND THAILAND? Charles, HS0ZCW, states, "If you
are planning a DXpedition to places that could include Bangkok as a
staging point, I can definitely recommend using Bangkok as the place.
Advantages include new airport with connections everywhere, good and
cheap hotels, cheap food and transportation locally, interesting place
for short tour, and best of all, a 5 square block area packed with
electronic parts. In the Bangkok Bon Mhor district downtown are hundreds
of shops selling coax and coax plugs, any electronic part and ICs, and
is very complete. Not sold are yagis below 10 meters. Recommend shipping
your radios on to final destination but any Yaesu radio can be sold over
the counter for export but must order first for Bangkok pick up. I will
be happy to give advice."

HELP SAVE THE DX LOGS! Bob, N2OO, from the QSL Manager Society, states,
"If anyone knows of any DX or DXpedition logs and blank cards that are
in jeopardy of being trashed, PLEASE save them! If you are a QSL Manager
and can't be bothered any more, PLEASE contact us! Contact the QSL Managers
Society and we pledge to locate a quality replacement QSL Manager. Just
because a DXpedition log is old does not mean that it is not worthy of
being saved! Save DX Logs!"

V5, NAMIBIA (Ops Needed!). David, GI4FUM, of the CQ DX African Safaris,
is planning a DXpedition to Namibia next year in March and is looking
for operators. He states that their host will be Andre, V51B, in Orange-
mund in Southern Namibia. The whole adventure starts in early March and
includes a sight seeing tour before ending up at Orangemund for 10 days
of operating prior to being an entry in for CQ WPX SSB Contest (March
24-25th). There would be the opportunity to do some sight seeing in
Namibia before returning home via Cape Town. If interested in joining
David's group, send an E-mail to: email@example.com
