ARLD018 DX news
This week's bulletin was made possible with information provided by
Rick, NE8Z, Tedd, KB8NW, the Yankee Clipper Contest Club
PacketCluster network and the Contest Corral column from the pages
of QST magazine.  Thanks to all.
AS-116.  Operators BZ1HAM, BZ1OK, KC6KOU, KJ4VH, OH0XX and OH2BH
want to provide one QSO for as many stations possible rather than
make multiple band/mode QSOs with fewer stations.  Check 3505, 7025,
14025 and 21025 kHz CW and 3785, 7045, 14195, 21295 kHz SSB.  QSL
via JA1BK.  A pirate was spotted on 15 meter CW prior to 0830z April
TANZANIA.  Eric, OH2BBF, should be arriving at Ngara April 14 to
start a two month stay.  He is bringing a TS-50 and hopes to obtain
a license.  Eric will try to make side trips to 5X, 9Q, 9U and 9X.
QSL via OH2BBF after he returns home.
CENTRAL KIRIBATI.  Bill, T31JK is on the air from Canton Island.  He
operates on 40 through 10 meters with SSB and CW, though he prefers
SSB.  Check 20 meter SSB around 0830z.  QSL T31JK via GW0OJK, Bill's
home call.
BRUNEI.  V85GA sometimes operates from club station V85BG on 20

an inverted L 30 meters long and 15 meters high.  The ground system
consists of 24 radials each 11 meters in length.  He is active
mornings from 0230 to 0305z on 3606 kHz.  Ben requests not to call
him on his frequency unless you really hear him.  QSL via Ben
