Quickie Ascension Island DXpedition Set

11/29/2013

The Daily DX reports that G3VFC, MØVFC, M1BXF, MØBLF, and G3ZAY will be active as ZD8UW from Ascension Island December 2-6. Operation will be on SSB and CW on 40 through 10 meters, with some 6 meter and WSPR activity possible. QSL via MØOXO’s online QSL request system (OQRS) for both bureau and direct cards. The team will upload logs to ClubLog andLoTW. They will not have Internet access at the operating location. Ascension Island is the 238th most-wanted entity on theClubLog DXCC Most Wanted List.

Elsewhere, the W8A/N8A American Samoa DXpedition team is now on Samoa, operating as 5W8A. This call sign was previously issued to YT1AD, but QSL cards for the November/December 2013 DXpedition should go via ZL3CW (the team is attempting to get this changed on QRZ.com).

JH1BXH is now on the air from Tinian Island, Northern Mariana Islands, as KHØ/JH1BXH. QSL to JH1BXH.

Eric Hall, K9GY (ex-T6MO), notes that the Afghanistan International Security Assistance Force Spectrum Management and the Afghanistan Telecom Regulatory Authority “typically” do not authorize T6/<home call sign> operation within Afghanistan. Afghan authorities stopped issuing YA prefix call signs in 2005. — Thanks to The Daily DX
