Thanks to the Northern Ohio Amateur Radio Society, Northern Ohio DX
Association, Ohio/Penn PacketCluster Network, AB5K & the AR TelNet
Clusters Network E21EIC, NL8F and YV5EN for the following DX information.

YB9, INDONESIA. Operators Jack/HS1FVL, JC/E20NKB (XYL of Champ) and
Champ/E21EIC will operate from Bali as YB9/AF1VL, YB9/AB1PB and YB9/KY1A
respectively, between November 14-18th. QSL via their home callsigns.
They will also operate as YB42SEA (special callsign) for the 42nd SEANET
Convention in Bali. See info at:

V7, MARSHALL ISLANDS (Update/Change). Tim, NL8F, will once again be active
as V73TM from Arno Island (OC-029)[not Majuro Island as first announced]
between November 26th and December 3rd. The reason for the change is the
old reliable hotel next to the airport on Majuro with sunny white beaches
now belongs to the Education Ministry, so now he will travel by boat
(4 hrs) to Arno. Tim informs OPDX that Anro Island is a nice place with a
beautiful sandy beach facing north. However, there are some small problems
-- no power so now packing generator, no food and now just a bit more
work and more costly. He also adds that Paula, NX1P, will be coming along
and will be providing the CW end of the operation as well as an entry in
the CQWW DX CW Contest. They are looking for a special callsign to use.
Activity will be on 80-10 meters using a Butternut HFV9, folding antenna
and Inverted L for 160m. Modes will be CW, SSB and possibly Digital. Tim
is looking for any donations to help with the new cost which can be sent
to <> via PayPal (This will be much appreciated). QSL via
K8NA (see

YV0, AVES ISLAND (Jumping The Gun!). Minutes after going to print about
the Aves Island DXpedition in OPDX.1188, the information was taken down
off the Web. Edwin, YV5EN, apologized to OPDX and the DX community for
the info and states he was "testing the YV0AI page. It was on
the Web just about 3 minutes just for testing purposes. Now I'm testing
the page in a personal domain which is very different than the
There is no official info at this time and no specific date known, but the
Radio Club Venezolano is working very hard on it. Hope YV0 will be soon
on the air, but it depends on Venezuelan Navy. Now that everybody knows
the callsign, please feel free to visit for any news. Sorry again
if those 3 minutes of Web testing makes all the Ham community feel so
angry or sad. Again, it was just 3 minutes for testing purposes...."
