PJ ACTIVITY. During the next three weeks (starting 10/10/10), DXers
will be treated to something special that they have never seen before
- multiple new DXCC entities. Expect huge pileups and probably plenty
of confusion. It is suggested to "PLEASE be patient", "LISTEN" and "KNOW"
who/what you are working. Even though the PJ islands are expected to be
new DXCC entities, they will NOT be totally rare ones and will be easily
accessible for future operations. With over 11 operations expected to
be on the air during the next month, observe/listen first and then have
fun working them.

SPECIAL NOTE: Bill Moore, NC1L, Awards Branch Manager, informed the
DXCC QSL Checker on October 6th (edited): "As you know on 10/10/10
Bonaire, Curacao and Sint Maarten, et al, will become deleted entities
on the DXCC list. Other changes will occur and a full news release will
be made at the appropriate time.
For card checking purposes, DXCC will not be accepting any contacts
for the new entities until January 1, 2011. If you receive applications
with the deleted PJ's, these can be checked until December 31, 2010.
However, if your applicant asks, this entity will still count but as
a deleted entity. (effective 10/10/10).
If someone brings to you a QSL dated 10/10/10 or after, but before
January 1, 2011, this card must be returned to them, unprocessed. The
new entities will not even be added to the DXCC computer until January 1,
2011, so submitting them will result in nothing credited."
Press Release from Helsinki - October 7, 2010
SCANDINAVIAN ACTIVITY CONTEST (SAC) THIS WEEKEND, OCTOBER 9-10
SAC is a fast-track race where the Nordic countries - LA, OH, OZ, SM and
TF - are in serious annual country-level competition while also seeing
individual muscle flexing on all bands except 160M from 1200 UTC Saturday
through 1200 UTC Sunday on SSB.
Radio Arcala, OH8X is an alliance of young and seasoned contesters who
do things together with their associates, bringing youthful energy and
old wisdom into the game and working together to secure needed resources
and always topped with innovations.
This is to introduce the Radio Arcala SAC team and their four operating
OH8X - the mother station in Northern Finland will be piloted by Toni,
OH2UA. He is a young and skillful operator and the current holder of
CQWW European records on both CW and SSB. <http://www.radioarcala.com/>
Toni's self-confidence is boosted by two 100-meter rotating towers and
large antennas challenging the Northern Lights as well as imminent ice
OJ0B - on Market Reef, two brave men, OH2BO and OH2PM, have decided to
weather the storms and hold on to the reef to put this rare counter into
SAC. They have racked up an impressive score on low bands this week and
they will keep on running the low bands and 17M until the SAC starting
bell, with some equipment challenges. Pertti, OH2PM will pilot SAC single-
OH0B - Aland Islands, with Martti, OH2BH to offer an OH0 in SAC from the
Brando cottage that has provided reliable service as a contest multiplier
for more than 30 years sporting a variety of OH0 callsigns. This is
Martti's annual October outing, taking Mom on a trip to a wonderland
which they discovered in 1979. There's a new 80M beam which may put
Martti on a par with OH8X and OJ0B as a rare country attraction.
OH2BH - from Southern Finland, Ilkka, OH1WZ will air the newly refurbished
OH2BH contest site, using a pair of Yaesu FTdx5000's. As a serious
contester, Ilkka is also the highly acclaimed Contest Club Finland (CCF)
PileUp Magazine's Chief Editor. You are very welcome to download your
PU copy with interesting reading plus a link to SAC rules. Ilkka is
hammering alongside the others but is determined to cut the finish line
ahead of them. <http://www.helsinki.fi/~korpela/PU/PU34_2010.pdf>
Radio Arcala has set as its target to offer you a lot of fun and to see
the four stations placing among the Scandinavian Top Six, single op - all
bands. You can follow their performance by tracking the serial numbers
of old and young Arcalians racing in full harmony.
QSL OH8X via OH2UA. Others via OH2BH.
