that he might not go island hopping this year as he has done in the past
due to poor conditions for QRP. QSL via DL9HCU, by the Bureau or direct

focus is to give North America stations a new one on 160m. QSL via his
home callsign. More info is forthcoming on

60M NEWS. Jose, CT1EEB, informs OPDX: "This is no doubt a good new-years
eve present. Today in the mailbox there was an envelope from Anacom with
the license to continue with the 60m band propagation tests. This license
is valid between the 1st of January 2011 to the 30th of April 2011 on
5371.5 kHz and 5403.5 kHz both SSB and CW. I have actually asked for
two more additional frequencies in this band but the request was denied.
Phase1 tests made during the 1st of May 2010 and the 31st of July 2010
produced a report sent to Anacom and to the Military, the report can be
seen at:
I just received word that Mike, CT1IUA, located at the Southern tip of
Portugal also received the same permit from Anacom, and I'm sure that
Carlos', CT1END, license will be renewed as well."

CY0, SABLE ISLAND (Update). Randy, N0TG, reports, "Storms that caused our
failed attempt to access Sable on December 6th have continued throughout
the month. For sure, Sable is not easy to get to, thus perhaps the move
up in the DX Magazine’s "2010 Most Wanted Countries Survey" rankings to
No. 50 overall, No. 36 RTTY, and No. 14 in Asia. The time frame for our
next attempt is March 2011. Prior to traveling to our takeoff point in
Canada we desire to observe somewhat stable weather and suitable beach
landing conditions. Thus, we will keep our personal schedules flexible
in order to be able to travel on short notice. Thanks to all for being
patient and the expressions that have encouraged us; we are determined
and eager to get on the air. The Web site will be updated as new inform-
ation develops. <>".   

DX0, SPRATLY ISLANDS. Just a reminder that 37 operators from 15 countries
will take part in a three teams efffort to put DX0DX on air between

bands and modes. QSL Manager is N2OO. For more information about the
DXpedition, including pictures of the team arriving in DU-land and the
list of suggested frequencies, please check out their Web site at:
until the 9th at the earliest - but watch your LONG PATH from the S/SW
at about 1030z for them on both 80 and 160 meters -  this is BEFORE your
sunrise. They may peak at your sunrise time again but it may be better
earlier on at 1030z (which is just after the Eastcoast sunset). They
will be on the SUNSET path around 2200z or so from the East/SE path or
over Europe depending on the skew.

ZL NEWS (New Zealand DX Hall of Fame Citations - 2011). A press release
by Lee Jennings, ZL2AL, New Zealand DX Hall of Fame Panel Convener,
reports (edited): "The New Zealand DX Hall of Fame was established in
2009 to honor those outstanding ZL DXers and contesters who have excelled
in our radio sport hobby over many years. The current panel of judges
includes Ken McCormack/ZL1AIH, Duncan McMahon/ZL3JT and Bill Carney/ZL3NB.
Previous winners have included, Roy/ZL4BO, Ron/ZL1AMO and Jock/ZL2GX (SK)
in 2009. Winners in 2010 included Dave/ZL1AMN, Aola/ZL1ALE and Dave/ZL1HY
(SK). This year, after much deliberation the judges were unanimous in their
selection and have elected the next three ZL radio amateurs to the New
Zealand DX Hall of Fame for 2011. Their individual citations are below:

  * John N. Shaw, ZL1BYZ - The election of John Shaw, ZL1BYZ, as the 7th
    inductee to the NZ DX Hall of Fame recognizes his extraordinary
    abilities as a contester and DXer. Licensed in 1983, John has proven
    to be a prolific contest operator and amazing DXer with most of his
    operations on CW. He usually places highly in major international
    contests and generates enormous pileups when he operates from his
    Pukekohe farm. John was a member of the ZL6QH contest group, ZL7T
    DXpedition, ZL6LH Light House team and a long time active member of
    the Papakura Radio Club. He has won the Doug Gorman Frequency measuring
    contest and numerous Jock White Field Day contests. He was recently
    made a member of the ARRL A-1 Operators Club. John will be joining the
    ARRL DXCC Club soon with an initial entry of over 300 countries. He
    contributes much to the sport of Amateur Radio Contesting and DXing in
    New Zealand. We wish John well in the future and hope that he will
    enjoy having the NZ DX HoF award plaque on his shack wall.

  * Bryan Anderson, ZL2AFT - The election of Bryan Anderson as the 8th
    inductee to the NZ DX Hall of Fame recognizes his superb DXing skills
    and outstanding contribution to the sport of radio DXing. Licensed in
    1954, Bryan has a long history of working DX with his own homebuilt
    equipment and had over 200 countries confirmed by by 1975. In 2009 he
    achieved DXCC #1 Honor Roll with 354 confirmed, mostly with antique
    Drake equipment and a homebuilt Quad. Bryan has given outstanding
    service to his local radio club and assisted many ZLs to achieve DX
    in the pile-ups. He has always tried to keep the hobby in perspective
    and not let it interfere with the more important things in life, such
    as his family and his work as a Polytech lecturer in Palmerston North.
    We wish Bryan well in the future and hope that he will enjoy having the
    award plaque on his wall.

  * Peter W. Watson, ZL3GQ  (SK) - To the Family of Peter Watson.... It
    gives me great pleasure to inform you that Peter Watson, ZL3GQ (SK),
    has been elected to the New Zealand DX Hall of Fame. The posthumous
    election of Peter as the 9th inductee to the NZ DX Hall of Fame
    recognizes Peter’s extraordinary and unselfish contribution to the
    sport of Amateur Radio DXing in New Zealand. From his 5.5 acre on the
    outskirts of Christchurch he achieved 323 entities by 1997, DXCC HR in
    CW, DXCC HR in Phone, 5BDXCC with 160m Endorsement, 5BWAZ Award #29,
    160WAZ Award #26. His passion was 160M and CW. He routinely set CQWW
    contest records and recorded the first ZL to VS6 top band contact. As
    an FOC member he was awarded the prestigious Al Slater award by the FOC
    committee for outstanding services to amateur radio.  He was also a
    member of the ARRL A-1 Operators Club and a team member of the May 1996
    ZL8RI  DXpedition to Raoul Island in the Kermadecs. He was an out-
    standing ZL radio amateur for decades. His last contest was in February
    1998 and he became a SK on March 27 of that year. This award honors
    Peter’s wonderful DXing and Contesting skills and will attest to how
    accomplished this great New Zealand DXer was.

  We offer our heartiest congratulations to these three outstanding ZL
radio amateurs who have been elected to the New Zealand DX Hall of Fame
in 2011. Thanks to Ken, Duncan and Bill for their work in selecting the
inductees. New Zealand has a rich history of producing world renowned
DXers and Contesters. We are delighted that these ZL DXers have been
recognized. They are among the best of New Zealand amateur DXers."
