D2 -Angola - 01.31.11

D2CQ (aka CT1ITZ), will be back on the air very soon from Porto Amboim. He was off the air for almost 1 year after some equipment was stolen from his QTH (power supply, coax, PL's, windom...). Paulo will be on the air with a G3TXQ Hexbeam and for now he will only be active on 20-6 meters SSB. He plans to put a dipole up for 40m and 80m soon. Mike mentions that sometimes the electricity goes down for 2 or 3 hours, so it is normal that Paulo suddenly disappears once in a while! Qsl via CT1IUA. [SOURCE CT1IUA via OPDX #996]

PJ6 - Saba Is. - Update - 01.25.11

Our six meter expedition to Saba Island (PJ6) is taking shape. The team will be K5AND, Dick, W5OZI, Pat and K5TR, George. We have plane reservations and a cottage reserved on the northeastern corner of the island at about 150 meters ASL. This location should afford an excellent take-off angle to EU, AF, US and much of SA.
We will arrive on Saba on June 22 and depart on July 6, giving us two weekends to try to make contacts with folks who may be unavailable during the week.
Our band plan is to use 50.106 for the CW beacon and run frequency and 50.120 for SSB. We will also operate JT65 for EME skeds on 50.210.
Call sign(s) to be used will be posted at a later date.
We have launched a developing site for our upcoming trip.
There will be some 'tweaks' as the weeks go by as well as updates on the 'news' page: http://dkhanson.com/pj6

Hi all, I will be with my portable setup on a pretty good spot during next low degradation period on 6m EME.

JX, Jan Mayen - 01.17.11

The Jan Mayen DXpedition set between July 6-14th, 2011, (see OPDX.949) and led by Stan, SQ8X, has announced
their group callsign will be JX7VPA. Currently, the team consists of: Stan/SQ8X (team leader), Pete/SQ9DIE, Vicky/SV2KBS, Decan/EI6FR, Leszek/NI1L, Tomek/SQ9C, Bernie/HB9ASZ, Pekka/OH2TA and Deon/K6WH Deon.
The group plans to be on the air for 8 days with 2-3 stations. Stan also states, "Due to polar summer season at Jan Mayen Island with broad day-light 24/7 the team will not operate on 160-80 meters – those bands will be totally dead at that time. The DXpedition will focus on 30-6 meters, and our main modes will be CW and RTTY/PSK, with some SSB if conditions will be good enough to operate as much as we wish to. The team will also check conditions on the 40m band, but the band may also be not usable at that time of the year. The team will have a professional TV crew on board that will prepare a broadcast documentary about the project and the island." Updated details such as operators and QSL route will be available soon on the following Web page (currently under construction) at: http://janmayen2011.orgjanmayen2011.org

VK9N - Norfolk Island - 01.09.11

Latest news from Guy, VK2KU, dated 2011-01-06: VK9NA operations will begin on the local morning of Sunday 9 January after setting up on the previous day. At the other end the 19th is likely to be the final day of operation, leaving the 20th for packing up.
EME on 2m is only one facet of the expedition, but they will try to be QRV on EME as much as possible. Moonrise on Norfolk Island on 9th January (local) is at 2210-1 UTC, ie at 2210 on 8th January (UTC date). The team have chosen 144.125MHz (in 1st period) for their 2m Operations, both terrestrial and EME. It would be appreciated if others who regularly operate on this frequency would make way for this rare DXCC operation. Given the likely
pileup on 144.125, it might be best to leave 144.124 - 144.126MHz
clear of unrelated signals. Good luck to all [SOURCE: Guy, VK2KU in QSP from the Team, direct to MMMonVHF]
