ST. PAUL ISLAND DXPEDITION – AUGUST 19 – 29, 2016
Now when FT4JA and VK0EK is QRT, it’s time for the next batch of exiting expeditions. Check DX-World for the latest news.
The ARRL DXCC Department has approved for DXCC credit the unexpected P5/3Z9DX “demonstration” operation from North Korea last December. Well-traveled Polish DXer Dom Grzyb, 3Z9DX, has said he expects to be back in North Korea — officially the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea (DPRK) — for his “official” activation by late summer. P5/3Z9DX showed up on the air from the most-wanted DXCC entity on December 20 and 21 to demonstrate Amateur Radio for North Korean officials. During that activation — the first in more than a decade — P5/3Z9DX made nearly 785 SSB contacts, most of them on 15 meters. Nearly 600 of the contacts were with stations in Asia; P5/3Z9DX worked just 26 stations in North America. He posted his log on ClubLog.
Juris/YL2GM and team plan to be on the air from Iran using callsign EP2A between April 16-25. The delay compared to the initial plans (autumn 2015) was because paperwork took longer than expected. QTH will be in Gilan province.
