ARLD016 DX news
This week's bulletin was made possible with info provided by Hans, OH2BDP, Jorma, OH2KI, Jean Michel, F6AJA, Mike, W0YR, Ron, AA5DX, Tedd, KB8NW, the OPDX Bulletin and Contest Corral from QST. Thanks to all.
The Central Arizona DX Association XZ1N DXpedition slated for April 2 to 12 has been postponed. A number of unsettled regulatory matters between military and ministries seems to be the crux of the problem.
Chris, ZS5IR/ZS6RI, will be active early May until mid-1997 signing ZS8IR. He will operate SSB, CW and RTTY on 160 through 6 meters using primarily wire antennas, including rhombics and vee beams. Chris operates in contests, too. QSL via ZS6EZ.
Sam, FT5WE, plans to be up and running on 80 meters in a couple of weeks. He continues to work 30 and 40 meter CW. QSL via F6GTW.
Listen for Finnish operators on the air until March 24. Original plans called for CW and SSB, though due to popular demand RTTY will also be worked. Please be patient on RTTY, as operator OH2KI is new to this mode. QSL OH0MB via OH0RJ, OJ0/OH1VR via OH1VR, and OJ0/OH2KI via OH2KI. The next Market Reef DXpedition by OH1VR is planned for the CQ WW WPX CW contest in May.
Three Norwegian operators will sign JW6RHA, JW9THA and JW8KT March 31 to April 7. They will use both SSB and CW. Listen for their SSB around 14248 and 21248 kHz.
Gerard, F2JD/5R8EN, will be on Nossi Be Island, IOTA AF057, March 22 to 24. Listen for 5R8EN/P.
XE2CQ will be in Tunisia on business April 14 to 24 and plans to guest operate club station 3V8BB. On his trip home he will try to stop and operate in both EA9 and ZB2. QSL via AA6BB. Meanwhile, Hein, DL2OBF, says cards have not been printed for the late November 1995 German operation of 3V8BB. As soon as cards are received from the printer, all contacts will be confirmed. Please be patient.
Ron, AA5DX, will sign VQ9DX until mid-June and operate all bands. QSL via Ron Marra, Marginal 301-C, La Rambla Suite 205, Ponce PR 00731.
A recent press release announces the team now consisting of 20 operators representing 9 countries. The ops are EA8AFJ, G0LMX, HB9AHL, JH4RHF, KA6W, K0IR, K4UEE, K9AJ, KK6EK, N6EK, NP4IW, ON6TT, PA3DUU, RA3AUU, VK2TQM, W6OTC, W8FMG, WA0PUJ, WA3YVN, and 9V1YC.
