* 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).

1006 GRIDS ON THE BIRDS. A special congratulations goes out to OPDX's
Webmaster John Papay, K8YSE, for reaching 1006 confirmed grids for his
satellite VUCC award!

3W, VIETNAM. Jacek, SP5APW, is expected to visit Phu Quoc Island (AS-128)
between March 7-12th. He has applied for the callsign 3W4JK. Activity
will be holiday style on 40-10 meters using SSB, PSK31 and RTTY, with
possible operations on 6 meters. He mentions that he will use a Elecraft
K3 with microKEYER II and Buddipole antennas. For updates, watch Jacek's

5H, TANZANIA. Chas, NK8O/VE3ISD, has traveled to Mwanza on Lake Victoria
for several years working there but has never operated any amateur radio
from Tanzania. Look for him for the first time to operate as 5H9CP between
June 11-22nd. Chas states, "I am primarily a CW operator. QRP and straight
key operators, please be ready! After fighting through pile-ups with my QRP
station at home, I understand the challenges. The rig on this trip will be
an Elecraft KX3 and antenna arrays will depend on the trees, how high I can
get the ropes to go, and whether a dipole, loop, or vertical will be the
best for the site from which I choose to operate. Times and frequencies
will be published [] before my departure for Tanzania, but they
definitely will not be written in stone. Operating times will depend
entirely on my responsibilities and schedule at the Nyakato Health
Center." QSL via NK8O.

5V, TOGO. Franco, I1FQH, will once again be active from Kpalime Village in
central Togo, but this time as 5V7V (last year he was 5V7DX). Activity
will be between February 5-17th. Activity will be on 160-6 meters using
a 20-10 meters Spiderbeam, and on 160-80m and 40-30m using a homebrew
vertical. There was mention that he will have an emphasis on lower bands.
His rig will be a K3 w/KL500 solid state amplifier and a Yaesu FT-817
for 6 meters. QSL via the LoTW (preferred) or via his home callsign,
direct (w/SASE) or by the Bureau. Visit the 5V7V Web page (with an
online log check) at:    
LAST MINUTE UPDATE: Before going to print, the "" is reporting

arrival due to severe turbulence affecting the aircraft. Franco is now
seeing if he can repair anything with the limited means available in Togo.

6Y, JAMAICA. Allen, N2KW, will be active as 6Y0A between March 5-23rd,
with as much fishing as radio. He tells OPDXX that he will be a serious
entry in the Commonwealth Contest [BERU] (March 10-11th). Outside of the
contest, his preference is CW, and he will try to work areas that are
"propagation challenged" to the Caribbean. QSL via Kappy, WA4WTG. Kappy
is a stamp collector, so please put your unwanted stamps in the envelope.

CQ NEWS. From the CQ Newsroom... "Armond Noble, N6WR, founder and publisher
of WorldRadio magazine for 37 years, died February 1st in Sacramento,
California after a short illness.
  Noble, publisher of Sacramento-based International Travel News magazine,
was hospitalized about two months ago, according to Editor David Tykol,
  WorldRadio was published monthly from July 1971 until the end of 2008,
when Noble sold the magazine to Hicksville, New York-based CQ Communi-
cations, Inc. With its February 2009 edition, it was renamed WorldRadio
Online and became the first online-only major amateur radio publication.
  Noble had a long and distinguished career in communications. From 1953
to 1955 he served in the U.S. Army with a VHF radio relay unit. He went
on to positions at commercial radio and TV stations around the United
States, including: KTWO-TV and KATI in Casper, Wyoming; KOOK-TV, Billings,
Montana; KTVB, Boise, Idaho; KERO-TV, Bakersfield, California, WOOD-TV,
Grand Rapids, Michigan, and KCRA Radio in Sacramento.

CY9, ST. PAUL ISLAND. Reports indicate that an international group of 10
operators will activate St. Paul Island (NA-094) during the middle part
of 2012. More details are forthcoming.

DIAMOND DXCC Challenge. Some have noticed that the current operation from
the entity Nauru (C21HA) can not be found on the 1937 ARRL Diamond DXCC
entity list -- that is because it is NOT there and will not count toward
the award. If you go to the bottom of the January 3, 2012, entity list
for the Diamond DXCC Challenge Award, it states - "Note: The intent of
this 75th anniversary award is to capture the essence and spirit of the
first DXCC List with a fun operating activity that allows us to look back
and appreciate the wonderful geography of Amateur Radio. We don't intend
to try to fit every existing scrap of land into one of the 1937 entities.
Some stations we work today will not count towards any entity from 1937.
Nor do some of the places we have chosen to represent a certain entity
fully match what existed in 1937." The few glitches initially found were
corrected on their January 3, 2012, list. It looks like anything after
that will just be ignored. If you can't find it specifically on the
January 3, 2012, list, it doesn't count, period.

E5, SOUTH COOK ISLANDS. John, N5JB, will be active as E51NJB from the
South Cook Islands (specific island was not provided) between February

out the following press release on February 1st: "It is today, February
1st, when the Northern Village of Arcala is gripped by an arctic frost
weighing down on the massive antenna structures. The thermometer has hit
a 2012 low - an icy reading of minus 27 C (minus 16.6 F) which makes the
towers turn rather slowly. Slow are the movements of those frozen people
as well.
  Radio Arcala has decided to send the Frozen Four (FF) of OH2BH, OH2MM,
OH2PM and OH8NC to more southerly latitudes as their balancing act. FF will
soon embark on a three week long operating stint taking them to the Azores
to activate CR2A and CR2X along with CU2KG and CU2KH in a variety of con-
figurations in the ARRL CW & SSB Contests, in addition to the CQWW 160M
SSB Contest.
  Up in the Frozen North, their mothership OH8X will be piloted by OH6KZP
in the ARRL CW Contest and by OH6UM in the ARRL SSB Contest. Moreover,
the team of OH6CT, OH8WW, OH8KTN and OH8GDU will be at the controls in
the WPX RTTY Contest on February 11-12. Please note that Kim, OH6KZP, 33,
is the latest addition to the team at Radio Arcala. See <>
  Additionally, their associate station OH0X from Aland Islands will be
activated by Pekka, OH2TA, in the ARRL CW Contest.
  As Radio Arcala is now celebrating their 5th anniversary, the WPX SSB
Contest of March 24-25 is scheduled to be featured as an all-out team
effort when OH8X members, local and overseas, will be gathering at the
Northern Village of Arcala to set their strategy for the next few years,
using a special callsign to be released at a later date. OH8/CU2CE and
OH8/CU2DX will also be activated.
  Please note that Radio Arcala is in the process of including a remote
station section along with discussing the future of Amateur Radio through
their Mission X, both tentatively presented at their website. <>
  And finally, QSLing for the 2011 Market Reef, OJ0X activities are well
underway and 80 percent of direct QSL requests have been answered. With
the completion of this phase, over the next few weeks, the OJ0X log will
be posted at LoTW.

HA0SR, are currently active as FW0NAR from Uvea Island (aka Wallis, OC-054,
DIFO FW-001, WLOTA 0389, WW Loc. AH16VS). It seems that they will be able
to reach Futuna Island (OC-118) for a few days during the next week. As
their baggage is very limited, they report that they will only run 100
watts and use a multiband wire antenna from there. Activity is planned
for 40-10 meters, mainly on CW. Due to the very limited condition there,
they request that only one QSO for each station will be accepted. No
multiply contacts with the Futuna Island station please! Also, online
log updating will be also provided daily from there. QSL for both FW0NAR
and TW0F via Laci HA0NAR. For updates, watch the FW0NAR Blog page at:

DXpedition should be QRT (UPDATE - QRTed at 1647z, Feb. 5th). They were
expected to dismantle the last four stations mid-day on Sunday and planned
for a sunset departure on the boat back to Buenaventura. The DXpedition
team expected to break the record set by VP6DX of 183,686 QSOs by a
comfortable margin at the end of their operation. As of print time, the
final comments by the HK0NA team state that they have worked over 190k
  The HK0NA log shows (per ClubLOG dated Feb. 5th, at 1646z): 192089 Total
QSOs and 43176 with Unique Calls. Mode breakdown: 85229/CW, 90775/SSB and
16082/RTTY. Continent breakdown: 1554/AF, 6/ANT, 14207/AS, 78909/EU,
89088/NA, 1480/OC and 6845/SA. Remember, QSL cards will be available
four ways:        OQRS DIRECT        DIRECT MAIL W/SASE/GS/IRC(s)
                  OQRS BUREAU        QSL BUREAU
Use only ONE of the above ways to save them a lot of extra work. Should
you choose to QSL directly to N2OO via direct mail, send your QSO inform-
ation and SASE/GS/IRC(s) to: Bob Schenck, N2OO, QSL Manager for HK0NA,
PO Box 345, Tuckerton, NJ 08087-0345, USA. The DXpedition team intends

after the conclusion of the DXpedition.
