K - U.S.A. - 07.03.11

KC4QVO wrote: "I am just letting everyone know that I will once again be making my trek to EN39. The trip is from July 2-10. I do not know how much I will be operating this year. I am toning down my operation a little bit. In past years I have run all 3 bands - 50, 144, 432mHz. However, 6m seems to be the only band that gets any activity so I am confining my operating to only 6m this year. This will ease on set up as well. I will be able to raise the 6m beam much easier alone than all of the antennas. I am not sure if I will even use my rotator this year. I may just revert back to the old "armstrong method" - no rotator, (heavy) bracket, and cable to worry about = faster set up/tear down.

TF - Iceland - 07.03.11

G4ODA wrote: "I’m pleased to be able to report that Paul, G1GSN, and I are returning to Iceland this year. We had hoped to be there in June but because of issues with the ferry (beyond our control) that did not prove possible so now we will be there in August. As always this is to be a holiday with radio rather than an expedition so we will not be spending all of the time on the radio.  On previous trips we have taken our tents leaving a lot of room in the Land Rover for radio. This time however we will be going in my new camping vehicle (see photo) which will be used for sleeping/cooking and as the shack so we will take less radios this time. In addition the roof rack is smaller than on my other Land Rover which affects the length of aerials and poles that can be carried. The plan is to be QRV on 50MHz, 144MHZ and (thanks to Icelandic Authorities kindly issuing to me a 4m permit) 70MHz. Given the time of year when we will be there and the number of contacts made on 6m on previous trips the main effort will be on 2 and 4m.

TI - Costa Rica - 07.03.11

Greetings, I will be operating from Costa Rica 10-17 July 2011 as TI. My location will be in the northwest part of the country near the city of Liberia in the Guanacaste region. I will be on vacation with friends so this will be a "holiday-style" operation with operating mostly taking place in the late afternoon local time.
I will be operating SSB only 10m-20m and possibly 6m if conditions permit using 100w and a Buddipole. QSL via my home call.

V3 - Belize - 07.01.11

Colin, KU5B, will once again be active from Placencia (WW Loc. EK56TM), Belize, as V31UB from 5-10 August 2011, including an entry in the North American CW QSO Party (6-7 August). QRV on 80-6m, 160m possible; SSB CW and digital modes. QSL via LoTW or direct to KU5B.

ZD8 - Ascension Is. (Update) - 07.04.11

German operators Wolf/DK1IP, Rainer/DL7OR, Gerd/DJ4KW, Arno/DL1CW and Werner/DJ9KH were expected to be active as ZD8D from Garden Cottage, Ascension Island (AF-003), between July 24th and August 9th (see OPDX.1009), but have now push their operation back until possibly October. The delay is due to heavy rainfalls in late April which damaged the street to Garden Cottage (their planned operating site). They have changed their plans and will now use a guesthouse in Georgetown which they state "is not ideal. We have to rely on our fiber-glass poles, as there are no trees etc... We are afraid, that we will be
handicapped on 160 and 80m, but we will do our best, of course." For updates, visit their Web page at: http://www.zd8d.de/index.php?home
