* 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).

3D2 AND T2 (News Flash). Bill, VK4FW, sent out the following on November
3rd: "Over the last several weeks, as many would know, there have been
numerous problems on some Pacific Islands with water shortages. When we
came to Fiji we immediately saw the necessary persons to get assurance
that all our equipment would be able to go to Tuvulu. We were assured as
best we could get, and told to come back on November 1 to book it all in.
Well, that day came and MURPHY struck yet again........ Because of major
back logs of very urgent freight (especially water) there are some 600kgs
currently waiting to go. This continually rises daily. We immediately
searched for shipping by boat with no joy, then tried to charter a vessel
and again with no joy. So here is what will now take place........ All
operators are permitted just 23kgs of luggage and nil oversize so we will
take as many antennas as possible and 2 only complete Elecraft K3 and
KPA500 stations. If there are any positive changes then we will, of course,
send more equipment as it is all in Fiji with us. We would request the DX
community have patience and try to understand that we have absolutely no
choice unless we cancel the operation totally. Meantime 3D2A by Eddie,
VK4AN, did a Single-Op/Low-Power 10m in the CQWW with some 2822 QSOs.
We have also amassed over 5,500 QSOs as 3D2T. Eric, VK4NEF, arrived today
so that gives us 3 ops to continue here. We have been very surprised at
the 10m openings, but extremely disappointed with nil on 160m and very
little on 80m......Cheers"

5Z, KENYA. Sig, NV7E/ZS6SIG, who has relocated from Pretoria, South Africa,
to Nairobi, Kenya, is signing 5Z4EE for about the next three years. Sig
announced this past week that he will once again be in the CQWW WPX SSB
Contest (March 24-25th) as a Single-Op/All-Band/High-Power entry. Activity
outside of the contests will be on all bands 160-10 meters. QSL via NV7E
or at the address shown for 5Z4EE on

9G, GHANA. Mark, W8MP, is an airline pilot who travels periodically to
Accra for 1-4 days at a time and plans to be active as 9G5MP. He states
that the radio and antenna is limited to what he can get in his suitcase,
which goes on the flight deck as a carry on and is not checked. Mark is
thinking about getting a Yaesu FT-817 or an Icom 7000 and use a dipole.
Operations will be sporadic based on when he has a layover in Ghana, and
usually he only knows a day or two in advance. Mark mentions that he is
also attempting to set up a permanent station in Accra for any visiting
or local ham to use. He states, "It is a distant vision, but it is
supported by Mr. Joseph Codjoe, the Chief Manager of Broadcasting at the
National Communications Authority. My thanks to Mr. Codjoe for making
the license 9G5MP possible." QSL via his home callsign. LAST MINUTE
UPDATE BEFORE GOING TO PRINT: Sunday afternoon, Mark informed OPDX that
he is now in Accra and is about to leave in a few hours. He states, "I
finally received the hard copy of my license yesterday in person, so I
am officially 9G5MP. I tried to borrow a radio from 9G1RQ, but it won't
work for this trip. I haven't figured out how to pull off actually
operating from Ghana due to my severe limitations of only being able to
bring things in my 'carry on' suitcase. That is everything I need to
operate, as well as my normal airline stuff. It needs to pass through
security screening, which leaves out tools or anything really odd. And
of course, I need to bring a laptop. Easy to run out of room. I am open
to any suggestions from you or any readers of the newsletter. I usually
sit in Ghana with literally nothing else to do. It would be a privilege
to give out 9G in any mode or band possible, given my limitations.
Electricity here is 230v 50hz with an odd plug, so power is yet another
challenge. The 6 story hotel does not have windows that open (due to
mosquitoes and the threat of malaria), but there are some trees near
the pool area I can probably sit near. Or I can operate from inside my
hotel room. Basic story is 'Have license, can travel, only lacking Small
radio or Antenna...' Any thoughts?" If you have any ideas to help Mark,
you can E-mail him at:    

A3, TONGA. Sigi, DL7DF, will head up a team of 9 experienced operators
to be active as A35YZ between March 7-24th, 2012. Operators menitoned

A6, UNITED ARAB EMIRATES. Ulli, DL9WVM, informs OPDX that he is going
to fly to Dubai again Friday, November 4th, and will arrive on November
5th. This will be his 5th stay in The Emirates this year, and he plans to
stay for 3 weeks. He will visit again with his children in Mirdif/Dubai.
Ulli states that he will not be as active as his previous stays but has
to work for his company in Germany, remotely. He will set up his station
on Saturday, November 5th, and first use the already erected 3 band ground
plane (10/15/20 meters) antenna. On Sunday, Ulli, plans to install a 7
band windom antenna (about 20 meters above the ground) and will be fully
operational then. Even though his activity will be restricted by his job
and family duties, he will concentrate on 10 and 12 meters. QSLs via his
home callsign, by the Bureau or direct. QSLs will be answered immediately
and cards are already printed. ADDED NOTE: Ulli has already made plans to
go to UAE again for March/April 2012 (flights are already booked).

HK0NA MALPELO ISLAND 2012 DXPEDITION (Update). Operators Sal/HK1T,
Jorge/HK1R and Faber/HK6F went on a reconnaissance trip to Malpelo
Island between October 23-30th. They did this to prepare for their
January 2012 DXpedition. Read a short written summary of their obser-
vations and see the pictures of what they saw and did on the island
Also, the followinga press release was sent out on November 2nd:
"Three members of the Malpelo 2012 team have just completed a seven day
reconnaissance visit to Malpelo...... This will be a very demanding
DXpedition for several reasons. The terrain is particularly difficult,
near vertical at times. And in order to have a clear radio view of Asia,
the Pacific region and W6/W7; it will be necessary to locate operating
site(s) and antennas at the top of the mountain. This further complicates
the difficulties and physical risks to the team.
  Team members vary in age from 25 to 73. But under the leadership and
constant urging of our team's medical doctors, K9SG and W0GJ, we have all
embarked on a physical training regimen. We should all be ready for the
challenges come early 2012.
  Three members of the team K4UEE, N4GRN and W6IZT will travel to Colombia
Nov. 5-8th, for a planning meeting with team leader, Jorge, HK1R, and
other team members. The purpose of the meeting is to review all the
checklists and responsibilities for each team member. With the information
gained on the recent reconnaissance visit, decisions can be finalized
concerning camp/operating sites, antenna types and placement, safety
measures and other critical decisions necessary to the ultimate success
for the DXpedition.
  One critical decision to be made concerns the duration of the operation.
We have permission to stay on site for 17 days versus the 14 days now
planned. We will be reviewing the DXpedition budget to determine if we
can afford the extra 15,000 USDs expense for 3 additional days.
  Contributions are gratefully accepted at:
We plan periodic press releases with information of interest. Also, watch
the website for breaking news.

LOTW EXPERIENCING DELAYS. The ARRL Web page reported on November 1st:
"Due to a large number of radio amateurs uploading their logs to Logbook
of The World (LoTW) after last weekend's CQ Worldwide SSB Contest, the
ARRL's online QSL verification service is experiencing delays. According
to ARRL IT Department Manager Michael Keane, K1MK, there is about a 33
hour wait for logs to be processed. 'Logs are processed in the order in
which they were received,' he explained. 'If you have uploaded your log
to LoTW, your log is currently queued for processing. It has not been
lost in the system. Uploading your log multiple times will only further
delay your log and those of others to be processed.'"
  THEN ON NOVEMBER 4TH, they report: "The log processing delay for Logbook
of The World (LoTW) remains at approximately 60 hours, with approximately
8000 logs queued for processing. PLEASE DO NOT UPLOAD THE SAME LOG MORE
THAN ONCE. According to ARRL IT Manager Michael Keane, K1MK, the League
has implemented an interim 'fast lane' for processing logs: 'In order to
do this, resources have been shifted from servicing interactive requests
to the processing of logs. As a result, LoTW users may notice some sluggish
performance. Since these changes have been put into place, the number of
logs waiting to be processed has been reduced by approximately 20 percent.
The expectation is that this new measure will continue to make inroads
into eliminating the backlog.'"

OR4, ANTARCTICA. Karel, ON5TN, will once again be staying at the Princess
Elisabeth Station (WAP BEL-02) in the Antarctica between November 16th
and through the end of February (2012). As nobody is overwintering at the
station, it might take some days before Karel gets on the radio as there
is a lot of work to do first. QSL via ON5TN. Updates on OR4TN can be found
regularly on:  
For more information about the Princess Elisabeth Station, go to:

PJ4, BONAIRE. Hennie, PE1MAE, will once again be active as PJ4/PE1MAE
from Bonaire (SA-006, WLOTA LH-1279) sometime this week for the next 4-5
months. Activity will probably be mainly SSB on 40 meters (around 7175
kHz) at 0000z. He will also be on 80 and 20 meters, possibly some other
bands. Hennie will specifically be looking for PA and European stations.
He will only run 100 watts into a Delta Loop antenna. QSL via PA2NJC,
direct or by the Bureau.

PJ5, SINT EUSTATIUS (Update). Just a reminder that Gerd, DL7VOG, will be
active as PJ5/DL7VOG from Sint Eustatius Island (NA-145) between November
13th and December 4th. His three week operation will also include the CQWW
DX CW Contest (November 26-27th) as PJ5G. Activity will be on 160-6 meters
using mainly CW and RTTY, but he will have a microphone with him just in
case someone really needs a phone QSO. Operations will be with a focus
on the lower bands and listening for JA stations during his sunset and
sunrise. As always, Gerd will be using his IC-706MK2G (this time with an
amp) into an HF9VX for 80-6m and an inverted "L" (on a 15m fiberglass
pole) for 160m. QSL via his home callsign, Bureau is preferred or direct.

  4W6A QSL CARDS. Steve, 9M6DXX, 4W6A Team Member, informs that the
  final proof of the 4-sided QSL has just been received from the printer.
  The cards should arrive with QSL Manager Tim, M0URX, soon and will then
  be sent out quickly. Tim reports that he has already processed QSL
  requests for over 13,000 QSOs - 32% of the total log - in less than
  six weeks since the end of the DXpedition. There is also a 2-sided
  version of the QSL (with the same photo on the front) that will be used
  for bureau cards and for those people who made more QSOs than can be
  fitted onto the one card. To see what the QSL card looks like, visit:

  A51PN QSLS AVAIALABLE. Glenn, W0GJ/A51B, reported this past week: "Last
  week when in Bhutan, I met Pradhan, A51PN, who was very active from
  1972 to 1983 when he worked in the Wireless Dept. of the Bhutan govern-
  ment. He gave me his stack of log books to digitize and upload to LoTW,
  about 30,000 estimated contacts. Pradhan is now 73 and in good health
  and living a quiet retired life. I will be able to answer QSL requests
  for anyone needing a card for A51PN. He has meticulous notes in his
  logs about QSLs that were returned."

  OLD QSL COLLECTION (Update). Jean Michel, F6AJA, wants to remind everyone
  to visit the Les Nouvelles DX (LNDX) Web page to see more than 9500 old
  QSL cards in several different albums/galleries. This site contains:
    - The ten most wanted DXCC entities (2004 to 2010) with more than
      300 QSLs
    - At least one card for each 60 deleted DXCC countries (more than
      1300+ QSLs)
    - Nearest the totality of current prefixes, disappeared now (more
      than 3500+ QSLs)
    - Album for stations from Magrebh - 1945 to 1962 (more than 300+ QSLs)
