P5 - NORTH KOREA Martti Laine, OH2BH, who worked from North Korea in 1995 already hit the airwaves again as P51BH on April 21. He was QRV on 20m CW around 0530 UTC, on 14195 kHz SSB around 0640 UTC and on 21295 SSB until 0800 UTC. This sixth trip to North Korea was only another one as a preparation for P5 to hit the airwaves officially sooner or later. The antennas and radios were left in P5 and it is only a matter of switching the power on - when the time is ripe. Martti made 263 QSOs mostly with Europe and Japan. Bill Kennamer, K5FUV, thinks that this was an important step towards the North Koreans to join the ranks of amateur radio. You can listen for a few minutes of P51BH's activity at: http://www.qsl.net/9k2hn/. The documentation will be sent to the ARRL shortly, and QSL cards will be released from the OH2BH Finland address as soon as possible. Martti returned to Beijing on Thursday.
