ARLX064 Israel-Jordan week set

A second Amateur Radio operation by both Jordanian and Israeli
amateurs is scheduled for October 25 to 31, 1995, following a
historic similar operation last July.

The operation, to sign 4X7JY, will commemorate the first anniversary
of the signing of a peace treaty between the State of Israel and the
Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan.

The July operation, JY74X, took place from Mt Nebo, in Jordan, and
Jordan's King Hussein, JY1, was an active participant.  The 4X7JY
operation this week will be from Eilat, an Israeli seaport, very
close to Ein Evrona, where the peace treaty was signed on October
25, 1994.

According to the editors of HaGal International, the 4X7JY operation
will be on 160 through 6 meters, CW, SSB and RTTY.  The operation
has been organized by Amir Bazak, 4X6TT, who made the arrangements
for the July operation.

A photo and brief story about the July operation appeared in
November 1995 QST on page 92.  A longer story, by Israel Amateur
Radio Club President Joe Obstfeld, 4X6KJ/JY8KJ, will appear in
December QST, in the Happenings column.
