* 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).

Operators Elmo/EA5BYP and Javier/EA5KM will once again be active from
Annobon Island (AF-039) and Bioko Island (AF-010, DXCC - Equatorial
Guinea) using the callsigns 3C0E and 3C6A, respectively. The official
dates have been announced this past week. The whole DXpedition will
take place between February 22nd and March 11th. Operations will take
place from the following islands:
  3C6A - Bioko Island; between February 22-26th
  3C0E - Annobon Island (Pagalu); between February 28th and March 11th

  QSL both callsigns via EA5BYP: Elmo Bernabé Coll, P.O.Box 3097,
03080 Alicante, Spain. They are looking for sponsors for this very
expensive operation. For more details and updates, watch the Web pge at:

3V, TUNISIA. SWL Ashraf "Ash", 3V4-002 (KF5EYY), will be active as 3V8SS
from the "Radio Club Station of Tunisian Scouts" in Sousse, during the
ARRL DX CW Contest (February 18-19th) as a Single-Op/All-Band/Low-Power
entry. QSL via LoTW or to LX1NO. Read about Ashraf on the following Web
page at:        

4W, TIMOR-LESTE (Update/QRT). Vlad, UA4WHX, is now QRT as 4W0VB. According
to, Vlad states [edited]: "Now, 4W0VB went off the air. US5ETV
and WA4WHX have been around, helping as much as they could. Great thanks
to both of them! If you worked 4W0VB - you worked OC-148 (main island of
East Timor - between January 11th-February 2nd and February 6-8th). If
4W0VB/p has been logged - you got OC-232 (Atouro Island - February 3-5th)
for yourself. All the valid QSOs have been uploaded to LoTW. If you need
a paper QSL, I would suggest you request it rather directly than via the
buro. USD cash in an envelope is a very bad idea. IRCs are better than
USDs. PayPal is perfect - my choice. Use E-mail
for Pay Pal. A few QSOs are perhaps not in the log, either pirates or QRM,
we will never know now. We could have busted your call, it may have
happened. Feel free any time to ask if that may be the case, do not
hesitate at all." Vlad's E-mail address is listed on, as well as
pictures he took from 4W.

6O, SOMALIA. By the time you read this, Darko, J28AA/E70A, is expected
to be active (on Monday, February 13th) from Hargeisa until February 20th.
Mixed reports about his callsign indicate that he will probably use 6O3A
and not 6O0DX as first announced. Also, reports indicate that he will
return to the Minister of Telecom on Monday to give a live demonstration
of operating (probably on 15 or 20 meters SSB), whereby his license and
callsign will be granted. Using a FT-857D into a multi-band vertical
antenna, Darko will be active on 40-10 meters using CW and SSB. While
there Darko will also try to teach and demostrate amateur radio to the
locals in Hargeisa and possibly establish a radio club by donating an
IC-735 transceiver with an antenna. QSL via K2PF.

6V, SENEGAL. Vladimir, RK4FF, will be active as 6V7S from Le Calao in
Ngaparou between now and February 22nd. Activity is on 80/40/20/15/10
meters using CW, SSB and RTTY. QSL via RK4FF.

6Y, JAMAICA. Yuri, VE3DX, will be active as 6Y2T during the ARRL DX CW
Contest (February 18-19th) as a Single-Op/All-Band entry. He will be on
Jamaica between February 14-21st. Activity outside of the contest will
be on 160-10 meters, including the 30/17/12 meter bands and using CW,
SSB and RTTY. QSL via VE3DZ.

9TH AAW ACTIVITY...................
* How in its ninth year, the Antarctic Activity Week (AAW) now boasts
  over 40 special event stations world-wide. All for the purpose of
  promoting awareness of the important work done by the scientific
  community and its associated amateur operators who delve out QSOs
  when their work schedule permits. The February 2012 QST has a great
  article on the AAW.

* "Scotty", WK3N, (WAP 192) is now in his third year of contributing.
  He will be passing out QSOs between February 20-26th. His special AAW
  QSL and associated links to awards can be see on (under WK3N).
  His QSL card displays a rare October 1956 photo taken on the first
  days of the construction of the South Pole Station showing parachutes
  dropping construction materials. WK3N's special event QSL has even
  made its way to the South Pole station where it is on display. QSL
  is via the Bureau or direct with SASE or SAE and one IRC.

* Look for three Italian National Antarctic Museums to be activate during
  the upcoming 9th Antarctic Activity Week (AAW), from three different
  cities between February 20-26th. Stations will be operating from inside
  the museums and will be active on all bands and modes. Look for the
  following stations to be on the air:
    II1MNA (WAP-60) - The National Antarctic Museum of Genova. QSL via
                      I1UP. No E-QSL. The log will be available online
                      Other info available at:
    II3MNA (WAP-205) - The National Antarctic Museum of Trieste. QSL via
    IO5ANT (WAP-210) - The National Antarctic Museum of Siena. QSL via

  More detailed information can be found on under the museum's
  callsign. Also, info about the AAW event can be found on the WAP Web
  site at:          

AH0, MARIANA ISLANDS. Masa, JI1DSO, will be active as AH0/AE6YW from the
Saipan (OC-086) Rental Shack between February 29th and March 6th. Activity
will be on 80-6 meters including the satellites. QSL via JA6GMC.

A2, BOTSWANA (DXpedition Update). Operators Frosty/K5LBU (A25CF), Keith/
VE7MID, Don/VE7DS (A25DS) and another operator to be named later will
be active from the Lotsane Safari Lodge between March 18-27th. The group
plans to be active in the CQWW WPX SSB Contest (March 24-25th) as A25HQ.
They will have about 3 rigs and a log periodic plus wire antenna covering
160 meters and up. Look for more details to be forthcoming.

AU2, INDIA (Special Event). By the time you read this, you may have a day
or two (expected QRT is February 13th) to work this unique 'Ham Radio
Expedition' that will be carried out at 'LOTHAL' in the Gujarat state,
which is an Indian historic place (one of the most prominent cities of
the ancient Indus valley civilization, dating from 2400 BC). Operators
will sign AU2LOH. Activity will be on CW, SSB and STV. Their suggested
frequencies are 7035, 7070, 7150, 14150, 14220, 21310, 21280 and 28550
kHz. Operators mentioned are: VU2ZNN, VU2EXP, VU2BGH, VU3RID, VU3KDG,
VU2AGJ, VU3SEG (and his XYL Shikha), VU3BUT, VU2WWX, VU2XX, VU2VMJ,
VU3PMU, VU2QBX, VU3TPN and SWL Suhash. QSL via VU3SYB. More details
about LOTHAL can be seen at:

CR3/CT9, MADEIRA ISLANDS. Operators Ulrich/DJ2YA, Falk/DK7YY, Ulf/DL5AXX,
Tom/DL5LYM and Frank/DL8WAA will be active as CR3L from Santana, Madeira
Island (AF-014) during the ARRL DX CW Contest (February 18-19th) as a
Multi-2 entry. QSL via DJ6QT. Operators will be active as CT9/homecall
before and after the contest. QSL via their home callsigns. Check out
the CR3L station's Web page at:

CT8, AZORES. Mario, DL2UX (ex-TY1JB), will be active as CT8/DL2UX from
Graciosa Island (EU-175, DIP AZ-004, PIP AC-004, WLOTA 0113) between
February 14-22nd. He is calling this a "Training Dxpedition" -- training
Persistence (biking, running, swimming and pile up; Triathlon and Ham
Radio). Activity will be on CW and SSB, and the HF bands testing antennas
for 20, 40 and 80m. He will use an IC706 MKIIG or something better. QSL
via his home callsign, direct or by the Bureau.

CY9, ST. PAUL ISLAND (Press Release #1 [edited]): "St. Paul Island is
called the Graveyard of the Gulf and that is where an international,
seasoned team of DXers will be heading to later this year.
  Plans are well under way for a 10-man team to activate this now wanted
DXCC entity which was last on air in 2005. When you consider most needed
entities (perhaps out with the Top 10) are activated every five years or
so, it is now time to mount a serious effort from CY9.
  Most operators will be unaware that in 2010, St. Paul Island became the
highest mover on DX Magazines most wanted list; from #77 to #47. Today,
according to that list and ClubLog, CY9 is needed more than entities such
as Tokelau (ZK3) or PY0T (Trindade & Martim Vaz).
  The team consists of Mike/AB5EB, Oscar/EA1DR, George/EA2TA, Christian/
EA3NT, Simon/IZ7ATN, Col/MM0NDX, Bjorn/SM0MDG, Vicky/SV2KBS, Steve/VA3FM
and Kevin/VE3EN.
  From late July to early August, IOTA Contest included, the group will be
active all bands, modes (160-2m) with special attention on 6m and 160m,
if propagation allows.
  A Web site is currently under construction and will be ready in a few
short weeks where much more info can be found. The QSL Manager for the
expedition is M0URX."

D4, CAPE VERDE. Rick, N6KT, will be active as D44TRS from Cape Verde
between March 17-29th. Details of activity were not provided, but he
will be active as D4A during CQWW WPX SSB Contest (March 24-25th). QSL
via KU9C.

E5, SOUTH COOK ISLANDS (Update). John, N5JB, will be active as E51NJB
from the Rarotonga Islands (OC-013) starting February 13th and depart on
the 25th. John informs OPDX, "The Rarotonga Beach Bungalows resort I will
be staying at is on the East side of the Island, so my path to the USA
will slightly favor the East coast over the West coast. I will have a
mountain between me and Asia. I expect to operate all bands, but I will
be there with my wife, and I am operating holiday style. I will be doing
some [activity] on the night time bands, but more on the daytime bands.
I will probably operate a lot of CW, but I think there may be a need
for phone because E51NNV (I think that was the call) did such a good
job on CW and probably reduced the CW need by quite a bit. Maybe a good
contest style phone operation would have a good rate. I will test both
[modes] and see which plays best." Activity will include the ARRL DX
CW Contest (February 18-19th) as a Single-Op/All-Band/Low-Power entry.
QSL via LoTW or N5JB.

H40, TEMOTU PROVINCE. Just a reminder that German operators Peter/DG1FK
and Sigi/DK9FN will once again return to Temotu Province for a third time
and be active as H40FK (PSK/RTTY) and H40FN (CW), respectively. Activity
will again be from Lata Motel on Nendo Island (OC-100) between February
7-20th. Operations will probably be on 160-6 meters depending on the band
conditions. QSL H40FN via HA8DD, and H40FK via DG1FK.

          Africa, between February 16-20th. The team plans to have up to
          3 simultaneous stations on air, covering most HF bands in
          order to give a fair chance to all operators world-wide who
          need this IOTA reference, working mostly on SSB and CW modes.

  announced this past week, on behalf of Elaine the widow of Harry, 7Q7HB,
  thanks to all who sent their condolence messages to Elaine, she has asked
  him to say a 'BIG THANK YOU' to all who did. He also announced that at
  this time the following: "On the anniversary of Harry's death, 12th
  DECEMBER 2012, I will CEASE to answer ANY QSL Cards for 7Q7HB. I have
  ALL the logs of ALL Harry's QSOs from 7Q7, if people NEED a card they
  have until the 12th DECEMBER to send for one. After that date ALL cards
  will be ignored and returned. It is VERY stressing and depressing to
  answer cards for a Guy who has been your best pal for 50 years...I am
  also seriously thinking of doing the same with 7Q7RM's cards. Ron has
  now been "SK" for 6 years and I still get cards for him. Neither he nor
  Harry require QSLs now... so I guess after the 12th December I should
  stop replying to cards for either station...... If anyone has any
  questions, my E-mail is good at, I will reply to ANY questions."
  If you need a 7Q7HB and 7Q7RM QSL, remember to ONLY QSL DIRECT to G0IAS:
  Allan Hickman, The Conifers, High Street, Elkesley, Retford, DN22 8AJ,

  (OQRS) is now active as of Monday, February 5th, at about 1500 UTC.
  Also, the HK0NA QSL Manager Bob, N2OO, informs: "Just uploaded the
  separate 'Fab Four' (HK1N, HK1T, HK1MW and HK6F) Malpelo logs to ClubLog
  <> for anyone who wants to search their QSOs.
  They are listed as homecall/HK0M. For example, HK1MW/HK0M."

  PJ4C LOG. Bernard, F9IE, QSL Manager for the past PJ4C Dxpedition,
  reported this past week mistakes have been fixed to the PJ4C log and

  of February. LoTW uploading is scheduled but not for several months.
  They request patience.

  TO3J QSL information:  

  UZBEKISTAN QSLS. Les, WF5E, from the DX-QSL Service, reports: "I just
  received about 600 mixed QSLs from Uzbekistan. These are for USA
  stations, and I will forward them shortly to various bureaus and
  some directs. Some are 'Thanks QSLs' and some 'PSE QSLs'."

  VP6T OQRS NOW ACTIVE. The VP6T Team has announced that just one week
  after the end of the VP6T Pitcairn DXpedition over 23,000 QSOs [41%]

  still like a direct QSL or a Bureau QSL you can now request them via
  the OQRS facility on ClubLog. Go to ClubLog. Find your QSOs, and press
  "Request QSL". QSL cards can also be requested in the traditional way
  (letter for direct or E-mail for Bureau) via the QSL Manager Nigel,
  G3TXF. However, if you have already received your LoTW "QSLs" and do
  not specifically require a traditional paper QSL, you are still welcome
  to make a small "thank you" donation to the VP6T operation via the VP6T
