First Worry Later" (WFWL).

3D2, FIJI. By the time you read this, Jim, WB2TJO, should be active from
here. Jim has been on the islands since December 8th, waiting for a
license. He will be there until January 6th, and plans to visit three of
the islands (Viti Levu, Vanua Levu and Taveuni -- all in IOTA OC-016).
Using his Icom 706 MkIIG and wire antennas, look for him on 40 and 20
meters. Jim will be on holiday, so operations will be limited and casual.

However, his activity will be limited due to his work; he is expected to
operate from the A61AD station, possibly on 12 and 17 meters using CW,
SSB and RTTY. The A61AD station does have a 4 element SteppIR for 20-6
meters, so Don's activity will be limited to those bands. Logs will be
uploaded to LoTW upon conclusion of his trip.

active as A6/VE6LB from Dubai between January 8th and February 8th.

that radio amateurs in Bahrain can now operate on 6 meters (50.0-50.5
MHz on a primary and exclusive basis, and 50.05-52.00 MHz on a secondary
basis) and also on additional frequencies on 136 kHz, 1.8 MHz, 7 MHz,
430 MHz and higher bands. However, they cannot operate on these newly
allocated frequencies until their licenses are amended.

a 2 element wire for 80 meters, and it is directed at Europe and NA to try
to work the biggest quantity of countries. If stations need to work Cuba
on 80 meters, they can send an E-mail to Eduardo and make a Sked for 80
meters at:

"Logbook of The World (LoTW). The ARRL's online logging program has
had an increase of more than 7000 hams since 2008. These 30,000 hams
have made upwards of 250 million QSOs with more than 58 million QSOs
in 2009 alone. In 2009, there was an increase of more than 24 percent
for both the number of registered users and the number of QSOs over
2008. For more details, go to the ARRL Web page at:

recent ham-cation at the end of November on Tortola as VP2V/W4DXX which
concluded w/1240 QSOs in 109 countries and 50 states with about 9 hours

VU, INDIA (News). OPDX was informed by Prasad, VU2PTT, that Gopal Madhavan,
VU2GMN, who is the President of ARSI - the IARU recognized national
organization of India, is reporting that the "Wireless Planning & Coordin-
ation Wing (WPC), India's Ministry of Communications and Information
Technology Department of Telecommunications has written to him to inform
that 10100-10150 kHz has been allocated to Amateur Radio Services on a
secondary basis in India. This means that VU2 hams are free to use this
on a non-interference basis with existing users of these frequencies.
Earlier, temporary permission was issued from time to time for this WARC
band. It has also been communicated to Gopal that the 50-52 MHz (6m) band
cannot be allocated now since it has already been allocated to other
services. ADDED NOTE: Steve, VU3USJ, mentions, "Gopal, VU2GMN, who has
been in contact with the relevant authorities in Delhi, says he is
trying to clarify if SSB will be included with the permanent allocation.
I believe Australia is the only other country allowing SSB on 10 MHz
for hams."
