ARLD029 DX news
This week's bulletin was made possible with information provided by
Tedd, KB8NW, the OPDX Bulletin, Joe, NJ1Q, Michael, KA2AEV, Dave,
N7RK, the Yankee Clipper Contest Club PacketCluster network and the
Contest Corral from QST.  Thanks to all.
BOUVET, 3Y.  UA9OBO, RW3GW and perhaps others, leave Saint
Petersburg sometime this month to take part in a scientific
expedition to the Antarctic lasting several months.  Bouvet is
scheduled as one of their stops and landing permission has been
obtained.  Their call will probably be 3Y/R0FL.
PRATAS ISLAND, BV9P.  Seemingly unfazed by an unstable power station
on the island, heat related health problems with some operators and
less than optimum propagation, the CTARL team managed over 10,000
QSO's as of May 28.  They should be active until June 5.  Listen for
their CW on 1827, 3504, 7004, 10134, 10424, 18074, 21024, 24894 and
28024.  SSB operations are around 1827, 3555, 7065, 14195, 18125,
21295, 24945 and 28495.  RTTY is on 7082, 14082 and 21082.  Some 50
MHz and OSCAR operation is possible.  QSL via KU9C.
ERITREA, E3.  As of bulletin time, there have been no QSN's on
Connecticut PacketCluster nodes for Jin, JF1IST, who was to be
active through June 11.  A station signing E31FAO was posted on the
Tokyo PacketCluster which may have been him.  E31FAO was heard
around 14280 and 21283 kHz between 1300 and 1500z.
TUVALU, T2.  Masa, JE1DXC, should remain active through June 6 as
T20XC.  He operates all HF bands and uses CW, SSB and RTTY.  QSL
direct to his home CBA or via the bureau.
GIBRALTAR, ZB2.  Dave, N7RK, will be active again from ZB2 June 23
to 30 as N7RK/ZB2.  He will be on 80, 40, 30, 20 and 17 meters
running 100 watts and wire antennas.  QSL via CBA.  Note that all
QSL's from Dave's November 1994 N7RK/ZB2 operation have now been
sent out either direct or via the bureau, depending upon how
SAINT PAUL ISLAND.  Everything is a GO for this operation slated for
July 27 to August 2.  Ops AA4VK, WA4DAN, KW2P and W5IJU will sign
/CY9 on all bands with CW, SSB and RTTY.  Some 6 meter and satellite
operation is possible.  QSL via WA4DAN.
ANTIGUA.  Members of the Frankford Radio Club plan to be active
during the CQ WW SSB Contest October 28 and 29.  This multi-multi
effort will sign V26B.  Team members will be active on various bands
and modes both before and after the contest period as time permits,
using V26B as well as other calls.  QSL V26B via WT3Q.
THIS WEEKEND ON THE RADIO.  The Portugal Day Contest, sponsored by
Rede dos Emissores Portugueses, runs from 0700 to 2400z June 3.
