FSDXA ANNOUNCES THEIR PLANS FOR 2011 (Press Release #1). Don Field, G3XTT,
FSDXA Publicity Officer, sent out the following on October 10th: "The Five
Star DXers Association (FSDXA) is pleased to announce its next DXpedition
to Kiritimati (also known as Christmas Island, T32) to take place in
September/October 2011. FSDXA, closely linked to CDXC (Chiltern DX Club),
the UK DX Foundation, is the group which brought you the 1998 9M0C Spratly
Islands DXpedition, the record-breaking 2001 D68C DXpedition to the Comoros
and, subsequently, the 2004 3B9C Rodrigues and 2007 3B7C St.Brandon
DXpeditions. Once again, Yaesu has kindly agreed to be Global Sponsor,
and will be providing sixteen FT-5000 transceivers along with a similar
number of Quadra VL-1000 linears. UK amateur radio retailers Martyn Lynch
& Sons and Nevada are also committed to sponsoring the operation.
It is hoped that the callsign T32C will be allocated. The 'C' in the
callsign stands for 'CDXC', the club from which the Five Star DXers Associ-
ation was formed and is also a reminder of the group’s previous successful
As with previous FSDXA expeditions, this will be a major effort, with a
target of more than 150,000 QSOs. There will be up to sixteen stations on
the air, using amplifiers along with monoband beams and vertical dipole
arrays, 24 hours a day, for almost four weeks, including four weekends,
around the autumn equinox when DX propagation on all bands is typically
at its best.
Our primary objective is to activate Christmas Island T32 with a view
to giving as many DXers as possible a first contact with this rare DXCC
entity and, as a secondary objective, to give as many band-slots as
possible. While many experienced DXers have one or two contacts with
Christmas Island, our focus, in addition to, making Christmas Island
available to less well-equipped DXers, especially in Europe and the US
East Coast, both of which are tough paths from the mid-Pacific, will be
to help fill those missing band and mode slots, especially on LF and on
Club Log shows Kiritimati as 36th most wanted DXCC entity by European
operators and 61st most wanted worldwide. It is even more sought after
on the LF bands.
A large number of amateurs from 13 different DXCC entities have already
signed up for T32C, some for half the overall period, some for the whole
operation. There will be 30 operators on site at any one time. Operator
numbers have been determined to ensure that a full complement of stations
can be manned whenever bands are open. Many of these operators have been
with us before. All bring experience not only of operating (usually
multiple modes, often with a contesting background) but in terms of other
essential skills. For example, we will have two medical specialists,
antenna, RF and software specialists, and a range of other skills which
will be essential in mounting a major operation so far from logistical
At the time of writing, the team is expected to consist of 40 operators
including: Falk/DK7YY, Jens/DL7AKC, Paul/EI5DI, Dave/EI9FBB, Gerard/F2JD,
Ian/F5VKT/G3YBY, Michel/FM5CD, Vincent/G0LMX, Tony/G0OPB, Nobby/G0VJG,
Don/G3BJ, Neville/G3NUG, Chris/G3SVL, David/G3UNA, Gordon/G3USR, John/
G3WGV, Mike/G3WPH, Don/G3XTT, Mark/G4AXX, John/G4DRS, Nick/G4FAL, Mike/
G4IUF, Justin/G4TSH, Michael/G7VJR, Clive/GM3POI, Bob/GU4YOX, Kazu/JA1RJU,
Jim/KF7E, Bob/MD0CCE, Bill/N2WB, Arnie/N6HC, Bob/N6OX, Ronald/PA3EWP,
Pete/SM5GMZ, Maury/W3EF, Paul/WF5T and Jay/WX0B. It is also planned to
take a young amateur, to gain valuable DXpedition experience, and sponsor-
ship is already on hand to make this possible.
At this time we are seeking contributions from sponsors to help defray
the very significant logistics costs of this DXpedition. For example, there
is limited electricity on the island so generators will have to be shipped.
Most equipment has to be shipped by container via Tarawa. The team will
then fly out to Christmas via Honolulu. All team members will be covering
their own travel costs and accommodation on the island, and making a
contribution to other (mainly logistics) costs, but there will still be
a significant shortfall.
Details of how to donate appear on our website (www.t32c.com) which is
now live. PayPal donations may be made directly via the site.....
All donations will be acknowledged.
The logos of all DX clubs etc which have helped to sponsor the DXpedition
will be shown on the QSL card, as will the names and callsigns of those
who make an individual contribution in advance of the DXpedition (subject,
in each case, to a certain minimum amount).
This first Bulletin is intended mainly to alert you to our upcoming
DXpedition. More information will be forthcoming in due course, and will
be posted on our website (www.t32c.com) as it becomes available."

RADIO ARCALA AND THE 2010 CQWW SSB CONTEST (Press Release). Jarmo, OH2BN,
sent on the following on October 17th:
"This year Radio Arcala set the target to become internationally focused
and extended their ranks to the United States, Japan and Continental
Europe, both in their overall expertise and their radio operating
resources. Kazu, JK3GAD, has done a superb job of taking many Arcala
messages to his homeland. Now it is time to set sail to the United
States and introduce another U.S. sound from the Radio Arcala station
OH8X from Northern Finland will be activated by Marko, OH4JFN, in SOAB,
hoping for improved propagation from the Far North.
OH0B from Aland Islands will be operated by Toni, OH2UA, current EU CQWW
SSB and CW record holder, also in SOAB. They will run against each other
to gain a Northern European victory and an initial set of qualification
points for WRTC 2014.
CR2X from the Azores with Jeff, N5TJ, at the helm will add a new element
to the European racing scene. He comes with a formidable WRTC background
and with current CQWW World Records for SSB and CW under his belt. As
this is the first time Jeff enters the European scene in CQWW, the
outcome promises to be interesting, to say the least.
5R8X from Madagascar will see the majority of Arcalians - OH2BH, OH2PM,
OH6KN, OH7EA and OH8NC - traveling to this island nation in the Indian
Ocean not only to provide a dual-multiplier but to do a variety of
things at once. In CQWW they will be multi-op, single-TX while also
making sure, with their awesome lineup of LF antennas, to provide a
5R8 on the low bands for those in need. Their low-band activity will
last for two weeks, including CQWW, plus the following weekend, with
two stations expected to be on at prime hours.
QSL to OH8X via OH2UA, others via OH2BH."

stages. Callsign will be T31A. They plan to have 6 stations operational

160 Contests (December 3-5th) as a Multi-2 class signing VP2M. Activity
outside the contests will be on 160-10 meters, mostly CW but some SSB,
RTTY and PSK. QSL all callsigns via K9CS.

as KP2/N1WON from the U.S. Virgin Island (NA-106) until October 19th,

nice QSL cards that I would like to send to the folks I’ve worked."
VK9N, NORFOLK ISLAND (Update/Change). After their operation from ZK2A
(see ZK2 listed below), operators Andrea/IK1PMR, YL Claudia/PA3LEO,
Al/LA9SN, Doug/N6TQS and possibly others will be active from here between
December 5-19th. Plans of activity should/probably be the same as their
operation from ZK2A. QSL via PA3LEO.
XX9, MACAO. Georg, DK7LX, is now active as XX9TLX until October 26th. His
main focus on this trip will be 30/17/12 meters as well as CW, and
possibly RTTY toward the end of his activity. Most of this activity so
far has been on 30 and 12 meters. He mentions that 80 meters is very
unlikely due to environmental issues. QSL via his home callsign.
ZK2, NIUE (Update/Change). Look for 5 operators to be active as ZK2A
between November 20th and December 3rd. Operators mentioned are: Andrea/
IK1PMR, YL Claudia/PA3LEO, Al/LA9SN, Doug/N6TQS, Alan/K6SRZ, and possibly
Tom/SP5UAF. Activity will be focused on Europe, 160-40 meters, 30/17/12
meters, CW and RTTY using four Elecraft with solid state amps with RX
antennas. This is a lightweight DXpedition. They will try to limit their
extra baggage expenses. To achieve this (and for efficiency and reliability
too) they will mainly use wire antennas. QSL via PA3LEO. A Web site is
now available at: http://www.pacificdxpedition.com/index.php?s=intro
ADDED NOTE: Operators of this operation will go on to operate from Norfolk
Island; see VK9N listed above.
