ARLD033 DX news
 
This week's bulletin was made possible with information provided by
Tedd, KB8NW, the OPDX Bulletin and Contest Corral from QST.  Thanks
to all.
 
SCARBOROUGH REEF, BS7.  Wayne, N7NG, states that another license for
BS7A has been obtained from the Chinese authorities.  Another
DXpedition will reportedly take place after this year's typhoon
season.  The operator team thus far consists of N7NG, ON1RY, SM7PKK,
JH4RHF and two others.
 
CONGO, TN.  Hazel, TN7OT, was heard on 14226 kHz around 2000z.  QSL
via Hazel, BP12, Impfondo, Republic of the Congo, Africa.
 
TUVALU, T2.  After several delays, Masa, JE1DXC, finally became
active as T20XC, with lots of activity on both CW and RTTY.  
 
MONACO, 3A.  Daniel, 3A2LZ, reports a few pirates have been active
from his country.  3A50A has been on the air, though this call has
NOT been officially issued.  Another station in the same category is
3A2CC.  Daniel mentioned contacts made between June 10 and 15 with
the Rotary Amateur Radio Society, ROARS, special event station,
3A2RAR, should be QSL'ed via 3A2LZ.
 
ANTIGUA, V2.  Doug, N3ADL, reports members of the Frankford Radio
Club, FRC, will be active in this year's CQWW DX Phone Contest
October 28 and 29 as V26B.  QSL via WT3Q.  Doug plans on being
active before and after the contest as time permits on the RS12
satellite as well as on 12 and 17 meters as V26DX.  QSL via N3ADL.
 
SPAIN, EH.  Some 140 stations are now authorized to operate 6 meters
using less than 30 watts of CW or SSB between 50.0 and 50.2 MHz.
These stations change their prefix from EA to EH when operating on 6
meters.
 
GIBRALTAR, ZB2.  Dave, N7RK, has announced that his ZB2 operation
planned for the last week of June has been canceled.  He may try
again in the fall.
 
SVALBARD, JW.  Dominik, DL5EBE, will operate as JW0K while here as a
member of a scientific expedition of the Norwegian Institute for
Biology and Geology Tromso.  This should take place from July 17 to
August 10 with activity on 40 through 10 meters, mainly CW and RTTY.
QSL via DL5EBE direct or the bureau.
 
KERMADEC ISLAND, ZL8.  Although landing permission has not been
granted, permission to operate has been granted for the November
1995 DXpedition.  Funding for this operation is running shy of
expectations.  May 1996 is the back-up date for the DXpedition
because the boat that goes to the island only goes there every 6
months to drop off supplies for scientists on the island.
 
Permission to operate has been granted as of June 8th, but no
permission had been issued to land on the island (this is still in
the works).
 
Meanwhile, Scott, AA8SM, is conducting a survey in the interest of
finding amateurs needs, bands and modes, for ZL8.  If you would like
to participate in the survey, see the OPDX Bulletin 211 for a
survey form.
