DX-NL 1178 - December 20, 1999
DX News Letter
Editor: Michael, DJ5AV
(PR: DJ5AV @ OE9XPI.AUT.EU)
English by: Bob, DL7VOA
I am now editor of this publication for three years and want to thank all readers for the increasing distributions since my call for more of them last year. This co-operation of the DXers makes it possible for me e.g. to list incoming QSLs only if they weren't coming through the past three years. Un- fortunately this is a tough job if you want to travel somewhere else from time to time. Now we will spend our well deserved X-mas and millenium holidays and there- fore the next DX Newsletter will be published on January 3, 2000. I wish you a successful DXing throughout the whole millenium! Michael, DJ5AV
VP8/a - ANTARCTICA UA9OBA und RW3GW are team members of the international Antarctic "Millenium Expedition" and are expected to operate as CE8/R3CA and CE9/R3CA from the Antarctic Base "Patriot Hills" and perhaps also from other bases as R3CA/ant. Starting on Dec 20 they have a regular sked on 14135 kHz between 0500 and 0600 UTC.
V6 - MICRONESIA Hide, JM1LJS, will be on the air from Ponape (OC-010) signing V63LJ in CW/SSB on 10-80m from Dec 26-31. If he gets his license renewed he stays until Jan 4. QSL via JH8DEH, Akira Miyata, 4-28-5, Minami Nishi 23 Jyou, Obihiro 080-2473, Japan.
VK0 - MACQUARIE ISLAND Alan writes on his homepage (http://www.geocities.com/vk0ld/3.html) that -for various reasons- VK0LD will be permanently QRT from Macquarie Island as of December 31st, 1999, 1200 UTC. Though he will stay on the island until Nov 2000 your last chance to work him is until Dec 30, 1999. Since there were tremendous pile-ups until now I wanted to wait with calling till they decreased to a smaller size. Until now I listened only, since he announced to stay there for another year. Was this an inappropriate modesty of mine?
6W - SENEGAL Jacques, F6BUM, will become QRV from 6W1 and 6W4 from Dec 24-31. QSL via F6BUM.
7Q7 - MALAWI Edwin, ZS5BBO, is activating 10/15/20/6m as 7Q7BO from Dec 19-26. QSL direct ONLY via ZS5BBO, Edwin Musto, Box 211032, Bluff 4036, South Africa.

XX9 - MACAO The Portuguese enclave will be handed over to China on Jan 1. To keep it as an existing DXCC entity they should get a special Chinese prefix instead of the Portuguese XX9.
