Helsinki, Finland
December 30, 2013


Callsign: OG0A
Dates: January 3 through January 13, 2014

Following the success of recent low-band operations by Z81X and OF9X, closely on
the heels of Santa Claus and capitalizing on the current season of almost total
darkness in Northern Europe, a sub-group of those two teams will be heading to
Aland Islands to activate OG0A on low bands and WARC bands.

The OH0X contest site will be used as the base camp with 160M slopers for the US
and Japan and a 2-L 80M beam atop a 42-meter (140ft) rotating tower. Main
activity will be on CW, but SSB/RTTY will also be used occasionally.

Operators: Mari, OH2FPK (YL); Rami, OH2BCI; Martti, OH2BH; Pertti, OH2PM and
Pekka, OH2TA.


This operation is dedicated to the Youth On The Air (YOTA) summer camp due to be
organized in Finland from July 15 through July 22, 2014 with two young YLs -
Mari, OH2FPK and Kati, OH2FKX - in charge. They will be hosting fifteen (15)
young European teams from the same number of countries acquainting themselves
with the many faces of Amateur Radio: presentations, competitions, visits to
radio stations, workshops, ARDF etc. at the height of the Finnish summer
season. The activity is sanctioned by IARU Region 1 and supported by the
European Union.

See <> and <>

All OQRS QSL requests for OF9X and OG0A with donations will be directed to
cover the costs
of this healthy youth activity in Finland. You can OQRS OF9X and OG0A
respectively via their page.

new 5 band Spiderbeam). He also states [edited], "Additionally, I will
put up some traveling wave V-beam antennas to USA and EU. We will also
try some low band activity, but due to poor soil conductivity I expect
not too much apart from extremely low noise levels (closest electricity
wall outlet is 80 km away). Between January 16-22nd, we will move to the
Kololi area where we will try some serious Low Band stuff based on a sea
mounted vertical, together with dipoles and the V-beam for the high bands."

the following groups: NA-001 Great Bahama Bank group, NA-113 36.6% South
Bahamas group, NA-054 Berry Islands and NA-048 Bimini Islands. Some of
these are rarer than others, but since I will be traveling by boat, I am
required to validate NA-054 and NA-048 through the IOTA Committee. I
also hope to activate some islands that are not on the list, even although
they seem to qualify (Hogsty Reef, Melita Cay). I hope to have more infor-
mation on this soon." Watch for updates. QSL via LoTW, eQSL or

we stayed in, to go back for another ten days. We will be in Mozambique
tomorrow 28th December through 6th January. We will be taking more antennas
this time, specifically...resonant antennas on 40/17/12, so we will be able
to use the amplifier on these bands, which we were not able to do on our
last trip. So, 40 - 6 meters, SSB, CW and we will attempt the digital modes
and RTTY also." Remember, you can see pictures from Beth on under

FR/T, TROMELIN (Press Release)[edited]: "Hi friends -- Most of the DXers
consider entities as check boxes to tick once the country is worked and
confirmed. That's the game! However, we hope to bring you a lot more than
just a simple check mark as you discover our next destination... Let's
talk about the 9th most wanted DXCC entity according to the Clublog statis-
tics, an empty box for 75% of the amateur radio community.
Tromelin, as well as Glorioso, Juan de Nova, Europa, belongs to the
‘Eparses’, a French word to name these small islands scattered around
Madagascar. These French territories are administered by the TAAF (Terres
Australes et Antarctiques Françaises). Their access is strictly controlled
and regulated in particular for ecological reasons. Tromelin is the smallest
one (1 square km) and the human impact is all the more sensitive. That's
the only island where there are no French military troops and only 2 agents
of the TAAF are posted there continuously.
The last operation took place in 2000. A 4 men team made 50,000 contacts
with the callsign FR/F6KDF/T. No authorization has been given ever since.
2014 will be the 60th anniversary of the 1st hamradio activity from
Tromelin. The operator was Marc, FB8BK/T.
Today, after some successful collaborative work with the TAAF authorities,
we are proud to announce that we received our landing permission and got
the green light to conduct an amateur radio operation on this remote island.
We'll be active on Tromelin from October 30th to November 10th, 2014.
6 operators have been allowed to stay of the island. They have been selected
for their experience and all six are ready to face the challenge. The team
is made up of Seb/F5UFX, Michel/FM5CD, Flo/F5CWU, Eric/F5SIH, Franck/F4AJQ,
and Fred/F5ROP.
The request is huge and we are conscious of this. For this reason, we are
working hard in order to prepare our operation in depth. Some places in the
world will have short openings and we’ll do our best to exploit these short
moments with proper planning adjusted with the help of pilots.
The coming months will be devoted to the search of sponsors. We already
have part of the equipment but partnership with equipment suppliers will
be essential. On the other hand, we will contact foundations, clubs, organi-
zations to request assistance to help us balance our budget, estimated at
90,000 USDs, most of which is devoted to logistic costs.
Our website is online. All details regarding the progress, plans of
the DXpedition and sponsorship opportunities will be accessible through
dedicated pages....
We will regularly keep updating you until our departure.

OF9, FINLAND (SANTA QRT). From the Offices of Santa Claus, Lapland, Finland
-- OF9X SANTA WENT QRT WEDNESDAY, DEC.25 AT 07 UTC -- This year, Santa
Claus of Amateur Radio fame was somewhat different than in the past. A
total of fifteen (15) radio operating elves and their support personnel
brought Santa and Christmas cheer to ham families in a very special way,
with several added elements to highlight the Festive Season. Not only
were some 21.000 QSOs uploaded to ClubLog but associated with these QSOs
were many interesting occasions when Santa was in personal contact with
children all across the world. Those are moments to be treasured!
Of those 21.000 QSOs, a sizable proportion were made on CW as well as
on low bands, utilizing state-of-the-art remote technology of Radio Arcala,
OH8X. Moreover, extensive special hardware elsewhere was employed to add
to highly dedicated operators in the Far North. Everyone was determined
to push their personal Christmas envelope to its limit.
Santa would like to summarize your eligibility for the Santa Claus
(CW) Award which you can order by E-mail at <>. You can
check your QSOs at <>.
1: You have a QSO with OF9X on SSB & CW - also 2012 Santa QSOs count.
2: You have only one 2013 QSO with OF9X - here correct passwords from
the Christmas Puzzle at would compensate.

Additionally, you can A:) order a Bureau card, B:) direct airmail QSL
cards, and C:) a direct Award and QSL cards through ClubLog's OQRS facility.
See again the re: OF9X....
Thank you for contacting Santa on many modes and bands during Christmas
2013. Hopefully we will meet again next year.

IRC REDEMPTION ETC... QSL Manager Phil, G3SWH, reports: "Hi gang -- Just
a cautionary note for those of you who still use IRCs. With effect from
1st January 2014 and in common with most other UK based QSL managers, I
will *NOT* be accepting IRCs for payment for return postage. They are
just too much hassle. OQRS and US dollars are much preferred and easier
to handle. Please take a look at <>
which has been in place for about six months. In that time, I have
received probably less than 10 of the new, 2017 expiry IRCs.....

SOUTHEAST ASIAN TOUR. Toshi, JA8BMK, will activate two DXCC entities
during the first two months of the new year. Activity will be holiday
style using a HEX beam/wire antennas/Inv.Vee. Operations will be on 160-10
meters. Toshi informs OPDX that the modes will be CW and SSB, not sure
about the Digital (says may be not). He will use a K2 with a 500w amp.
QSL via JA8BMK, by the Bureau or direct (see His tentative
schedule (Starting/Ending dates are flexible) and callsigns are as follows:
January 15-30th - Callsign is XW8BM; from Vientiane, Laos.
February 15th-March 2nd (possibly 25th) - Callsign is XV2BM; from
Nha Trang (eastcost of South China Sea), Vietnam.

MORE INFO FROM JA8BMK (Just before going to print!)[edited]: "I will
leave Japan for Vientiane via China on Jan. 11, 2014, and I am scheduled
to receive the license at PTT office. The thing is the location to operate.
Vientiane is not a exceptional, noisy city and it seems very difficult to
put up a vertical antennas for low bands. I will spend a few days to find
a good location for antenna installation. Also, I must explain to the hotel
people about what amateur radio is. Sometime, they do not give the per-
mission to visitors as they have no knowledge on amateur radio. However,
I succeeded in 3D (Fiji) land by explaining about BBC which I like to
listen to.
Regarding my antennas, I left them in Nepal. They are KIO Hex beam and
wire/vertical and coax cable for the next operation. This time I bought
another Hex beam from DX Engineering. This is a very good antenna and
seems strong. But the problem is that it takes a long time and I modified
it so that Airline company (China Eastern) will accept the size which
is only 158cm total dimension X+Y+Z as maximum. They will accept two of
23kg per person, I got 92kg for the luggage with two persons, my wife and
I. The 158cm as a total dimension is now popular. The longest length
is 96cm after modifying and I made a wooden box for them(28x30x100cm O.D.).
KIO Hex beam seems cheaper and lighter, and simpler to assemble compared
with DX Eng. Hex beam. For DXpedition, I like to recommend KIO.
The license fee is not cheap in XW (may be, in XV, too) as well as 9N.
The fee should be calculated according to how many bands, how much power,
what frequency, what mode and how many days. These factors can be multi-
plied. I heard in XW PTT office that one Russian guy payed over 2,500
US dollar before!
My schedule is not sure after XW operation. But I will be in Indo-China
until Mar. 28th, 2014, and will try to visit some other entity if I have time.
Anyway, I am traveling with my wife, I will not be so free as I must take
care of her."

TY, BENIN (Update). Wim, ON6DX (ex-ON4CIT), who was active as 5V7TH
recently from Togo, announced this past week he finally received his
Benin callsign TY1TT from the telecom authorities. He states, "Was not
easy, took me the longest time and most expensive ever to get a callsign.
Now I can plan flights and lodging beginning 2014 in Benin." No specific
dates were mentioned yet. Activity will be from Grand PoPo and operations
will be on 20/17/15/12/10/6 meters using CW, SSB and RTTY. Wim did mention,
"Clublog is a fine tool, but this year: OQRS QSL: Yes, but... But no more
clublog leaderboards." Read his reason and look for updates at:

VQ9, CHAGOS (Update). Last week we reported that Jim, ND9M, is once again
active as VQ9JC from Diego Garcia. Jim informed OPDX that he arrived on the
island a month ago, but he had to get his license renewed; it expired a
couple days before he landed. Jim states, "Normally, I get it renewed
within one business day, but this time there was an administrative hiccup
that led to a month-long delay. The British military officer in charge
of the island ­ called the 'Brit Rep' ­ was new to his post here. He read
all the can's and cannot's of the job, and the legal info about issuing
ham licenses says that tickets are signed by the Territorial Commissioner
who's back in the U.K. The Brit Rep finally got the official word last
week that issuing authority was delegated to the local office, and my
license was signed the next day. This was the first time in the 15 years
I've been coming here that anything like that had happened. In fact,
licensing had been so smooth here that in 2008, I walked in to the Brit
Rep's office without an appointment and left 45 minutes later with not
only a signed renewal for my regular VQ9JC license but also a special
temporary license for my VQ98JC operation. I wonder if anyone else can
claim receiving two licenses fully authorized without previous notice
that fast! Anyway, I'm still operating Field Day style from the covered
picnic table at the park which has AC power and dozens of gecko lizards
chasing the bugs. The table is about 30 feet from the wall of the jungle,
and this weekend I'll try to thread a 135-foot OCF dipole through all the
trees in the jungle so that I can not only leave the antenna up but also
have multi-band capability. If I hoist the antenna where it can be seen,
I would stand a very good chance of it being quickly removed as the 150
pound fishing line that I use to secure the antenna and the copper wire
are both precious commodities here. The OCF dipole doesn't work on 15m,
30m, or 60m, even with a matchbox, so I'll put up separate dipoles for
15 and 30 and feed those two and the OCF to a switch. I don't know yet
if I'll put up a 60m dipole. The 80m OCF is going to be a big enough
project just to get it hoisted to only 25 feet; the jungle's pretty
thick! I'll also be putting up a 20m dipole and maybe a 30m dipole as
well on the ship. Obviously, I sign /MM during any contacts made from
the ship as I did earlier this year. Contacts with me as /MM aren't
valid for DXCC of course, but SKCC ops can count them if my ship's QTH
is near the island. The rig is an FT-857D. I'll be running 100 watts
most of the time, but I'm expecting to do some QRP work from here too.
Most of my operating will be CW as usual (with a cootie most times),
but I'll be on SSB occasionally. Also, I'm a rookie when it comes to
digital comms, but I'm hoping to get my Rigblaster and FLDigi software
configured to do some PSK and RTTY work. While on board the ship, I use
an Icom IC-760 that I have set up in my service shop. I feed the coax
through a helicopter control center that's directly above my shop. My
shipboard antennas are about 115 feet above the water line. I don't have
internet connectivity when I'm at my operating QTH on the island, so I
obviously can't help with real-time QSY requests or the ever present
'EU PSE' when I'm calling for NA & SA stations." OPDX asked Jim about
the status of the club station, possibly using a special VQ prefix for
2014, activity on the satellites and if he would attend the 2014 Dayton
HamVention, and he replied, "Yeah, the ham club station is gone forever
unfortunately. The log periodic has been grounded and dismantled, and
everything in the shack has been turned back over to the Navy. I'm here
six months out of the year of course, but once Larry, VQ9LA left three
years ago, there was no one reliably present during my off times. When
the Navy's MWR office personnel made a routine visit, they found nobody
there since I was Stateside, so they decided that the club was no longer
in use and took what they thought were appropriate steps. By the time I
got back to the island and worked my way up the chain of command, the
deal had been sealed. And yes, I'm working the satellites out here although
there aren't many ops to work. I'll be on the birds when I get home again
next year. I don't know yet if my XYL Cori (KK4CGA) and I will be at Dayton
this coming May or not. We're hoping to go to New England for the ARRL
Centennial in July, and we'll likely do only one trip. My assignment
schedule has me returning to the ship a few days days before the national
convention, and I'm trying to work things out with the guy that's here
when I'm off ship for him to stay a little longer so that I can attend.
He hasn't given me a firm answer yet though..... My plan for 2014 is to
get VQ94JC issued for sometime during the second half of the year. The
local licensing office has no requirements toward my getting a ticket
other than having one already issued by the FCC. My US license expires
in April, and the FCC won't enable the renewing process until 90 days
before the expiration date, so I have to wait until early January to do
that. If I can get the renewed license here - actually just a scanned
copy will do and my XYL will send that - I can turn that over to the
local office, and they should issue me the short-term ticket. Emphasis
on special. It's all legal of course, but the folks in that office are
all British military who typically do one-year tours here before being
re-assigned, so I can never assume that the next person will cooperate.
I'm optimistic though as I've already had 7 VQ9xJC licenses plus the
VQ975FOC ticket earlier this year, so the precedent's pretty well estab-
lished. When I started doing the VQ9xJC bit in 2007, I did it just for
fun and I thought the WPX chasers would like it. I really didn't expect
to still be doing it after so many years. Now I'm looking ahead at rounding
out the decade of annual special callsigns and thinking about what special
prefix variation to initiate after the 10th one!" QSL via ND9M.

CQ to Realign Publications, Launch New CQ Plus Digital Supplement
Hicksville, NY (December 23, 2013) -- CQ Communications, Inc. today
announced plans to realign its roster of publications and to launch an
exciting new online supplement to its flagship magazine, CQ Amateur Radio.

"The hobby radio market is changing," said CQ Communications President
and Publisher Dick Ross, K2MGA, "and we are changing what we do and how
we do it in order to continue providing leadership to all segments of
the radio hobby." CQ Communications is currently the only publisher in
the United States serving the broad radio hobby, from broadcast band
DXing to amateur radio moonbounce and satellite communications. CQ itself
has been amateur radio's leading independent voice for seven decades.

Effective with the February 2014 issue of CQ, said Ross, content from
the magazine's three sister publications, Popular Communications, CQ VHF
and WorldRadio Online, will be incorporated into CQ's digital edition as
a supplement to be called "CQ Plus." With this change, hobby radio enthus-
iasts of all types will be able to go to a single source - CQ - for articles
on the broader aspects of hobby radio, from shortwave listening and scanner
monitoring to personal two-way services and Internet radio, as well as
amateur radio. Richard Fisher, KI6SN, currently Editor of both Popular
Communications and WorldRadio Online, will be Editor of CQ Plus.

"Our primary audience is ham radio operators," explained Ross, "but
very few hams began their radio involvement as amateurs. Most of us
started out as shortwave listeners, broadcast band DXers, CBers or
scanning enthusiasts. Many continue to be involved in many different
aspects of the radio hobby in addition to amateur radio."

"By consolidating four specialized publications into one," Ross continued,
"we will be better able to keep these multidimensional readers informed on
all aspects of the radio hobby while simultaneously exposing those who are
not hams to all the excitement and opportunities that amateur radio has to
offer. We see this as a win-win for all of our readers and our advertisers,
who will now be able to reach a wider and more diverse audience."

The expanded material will be an integral part of the digital edition of
CQ, and will be included as part of a standard digital subscription. Each
month's digital edition will simply continue beyond where the print edition
ends, offering supplemental material on all aspects of hobby radio communi-
cation and will include selected columns carried over from the other
magazines. The added digital content will make full use of the multimedia
opportunities presented by digital publications.

Current subscriptions to Popular Communications, CQ VHF and WorldRadio
Online will be converted to CQ subscriptions - and receive CQ Plus at no
additional charge! Details will be posted on each magazine website.

There's no need to wait to see the great variety of articles that will
be featured each month in the new CQ and CQ Plus. A preview of the February
issue's Table of Contents is available right now on the CQ website at

CQ DX MARATHON ---> The CQ DX Marathon ( is a year-long
DX hunt, with participants competing to see who can work the greatest
number of countries ("entities") and CQ zones during the calendar year. The
2014 edition will start at 00.00 UTC on 1 January and will end at 23.59 UTC
on 31 December. For 2014, the CQ Marathon is introducing a third class of
competition: the new Limited Class will allow those running 100 watts and
small directional antennas to participate in their own class. Complete
rules at

GRANITE ISLAND (OC-228) ---> Paul, VK5PAS was active for a few hours from
Granite Island on 27 December. Those who were not able to work him during
his QRP operation, will have a second chance next year, as Craig, VK5CE has
plans to operate from this island "probably around April for 2-4 days".

PMC CONTEST ---> The PMC Contest promotes contacts between stations located
in the Peace Messenger Cities and the rest of the world. Sponsored by the
Radio Club Slovenj Gradec (S59DCD), it will be held from 12 UTC on 4
January 2014 until 12 UTC on the 5th. Complete details can be found at [TNX S54X]

QSL T32AU ---> Dave, G4GED is not and has never been the QSL manager for
T32AU (January 2012). "I have received many cards through the bureau which
I will forward to the VE3 bureau sometime next year", he says. The
DXpedition's website ( still lists QSL via VO1MX,
but the entry on shows via VE3AAQ. G4GED no longer has "any logs
for any T3 callsigns from the 1980s".

T6EUPOL ---> This is "the official ham radio station of the European Union
Police (EUPOL) Mission in Afghanistan". It is operated by Janusz, AK4JK.
QSL direct only to Janusz Babol Vel Sobczyk, 8433 Southside Blvd, Apt 2711,
Jacksonville FL 32256, USA.

W1AW WAS ---> Look for ARRL Centennial stations W1AW/4 from North Carolina
and W1AW/8 from West Virginia to be on the air starting at 00.00 UTC on 1
January until 23.59 UTC on the 7th. Complete information on the ARRL
Centennial QSO Party can be found at
