3DA0 Swaziland -30.03.12
3DAOFC Swaziland DX Expedition
ZS6A, Pierre, wrote:
"I will be joining the 3DA0FC DX expedition in Swaziland operating from Hawane resort. Grid locator KG53ms
Setup: Antenna 6M3 (or better), low loss feed line and running 400 watts.
Planning to be QRV from Friday 6 April to Monday 9 April. I will be beaming towards Europe during the afternoon and evening TEP periods using mainly SSB and CW.
I will monitor the International calling frequency 50.110 MHz (110.60 on CW).
During periods of no observed activity I will run a attended CQ beacon keyer, once every 60 seconds when viable.
Special request: I am not a high speed CW operator, the chances of success will be much improved if the calls are made at 18 WPM (or less), sending your call at least twice should also help.
Kind regards, Pierre ZS6A".
6O – Somaliland - 29.03.12
The Intrepid-DX Group is pleased to announce our next DXpedition, as 6O3A from Hargeisa, Somaliland (Somalia) to take place from November 6th-14th, 2012. The Intrepid-DX Group is the same group which brought you the recent ET3AA, ST0R and YI9PSE DXpeditions.
Our primary objective is to activate Somaliland with a goal of providing as many DXers as possible a “new one” with this rare DXCC entity and, as a secondary objective, to give as many band-slots as possible. We will focus on North America, KH6, ZL/VK during those periods when propagation is possible to those areas.
The team consists of twelve operators including: Co-Leader Paul Ewing-N6PSE, Co-Leader David Collingham K3LP, Dave Flack AH6HY, Jun Tanaka JH4RHF, Dmitri Zhikharev RA9USU, Darko Rusman E70A, Krassy Petkov K1LZ, Hrane Milosevic YT1AD, Bill Beyer N2WB, John Miller K6MM, Al Hernandez K3VN and Bob Grimmick N6OX.
Our QSL Manager is Joe-W3HNK. We will have OQRS, we will accept direct and bureau QSL cards. We plan to upload our logs to Club Log on a daily basis.
You can find out more about our plans at website http://www.intrepid-dx.com/6o3a/
ADD BY SIXITALIA: The team seems doesn't have any idea to be active on 6m also if the period promits very interesting opening to Asia and Europe via F2 and TEP also in a period of "low SFI" (around 100). We hope that the team will consider to leave one station and one operator (or a beacon) on 6m every day at list from 05 to 17z.
CY9. St. Paul Island (UPDATE) - 30.03.12
The logistical aspect of activating St Paul island is now very much ongoing and a work in progress. No wonder it’s been seven long years since this DXCC entity was last active when you consider the island has nothing resembling human day-to-day, taken for granted “luxuries”.
Now the group insurance and landing permit are formalised, we’re getting to work on the actual transmitting side of things. We know the east side of the island has a great take-off to EU and AF, whilst on the west there are excellent paths to NA, SA and AS. Initial thinking was to set up two camps at either side of the island, but this is proving a huge logistics problem, primarily because an overgrown and intertwined forest blocks all routes – since we are active for a relatively short period, assembling quickly at one location seems more likely. We will update nearer the time on chosen location.
We sincerely thank and acknowledge the numerous organisations, clubs and individual donors who realise the task ahead. You, too, can help us get CY9M on air by checking out the official website.

D6 - Comoros - 02.04.12
A team of Europeon operators will be active as D64K from Comoros Islands (IOTA AF-007) in August 2012.
Operators mentioned are Fabrizio/IW3SQY, Paolo/IV3DSH, Antonello/IT9YVO, Franco/IZ8GCE, Giorgio/IZ4AKS, Les/SP3DOI and Salvador C31CT/EA3QS. The team has already obtained all permissions, and the license has been sent to the DXCC Desk. It was mentioned that at the present time it is appropriate to maintain confidentiality about dates and locations for safety reasons given the delicate political situation on the island. The official D64K Web site will go online about a month before the DXpedition. Their license covers from 160 to 6 meters, so the guys will be active on all bands and modes, and they are even considering the possibility of working on 60m and 6m. The QSL Manager will be Paolo, IV3DSH. More details will be forthcoming. Watch the following for updates:
