HK0NA DXPEDITION (Latest News Dated January 6th)
From the HK0NA Web page:
" 'The fantastic four' are working very hard and doing a great job on the Island! We are in daily contact with them. They are tired but in high spirits. Most of the camp infrastructure and antennas for Op.B (bajo) is now complete. Two antennas require further testing.
Today, they made the climb to the top of the mountain (300m), this will be the location for Op. A (alto). The purpose was to survey the antenna and operating locations. It is a fairly strenuous climb, and it took about 40 minutes to get to the top. Afterward, a decision was made to place the operating position and sleep tent at the very top of the mountain and schedule operators for 2 day shifts to minimize transit risks. Set up of the camp infrastructure and antennas at OP A will begin in a couple of days. We plan another press release prior to our departure to Bogota on Jan. 18th."

JW8AJA QSL REQUESTS. QSL Manager Trond, LA9VDA, reports on (QRZ.com) [edited]: "QSL cards can be requested via E-mail to la9vda (at) gmail.com. For a direct QSL, please add 3 USDs or 1 new and stamped IRC and SAE. Cards without this will be sent through the bureau. Postage is now 15,- Nkr. One U.S. dollar is worth little over one Norway dollar. This is after the bank has taken their fee and stuff..... two USDs does not cover to buy a stamp for overseas mail. For many years I have sponsored the DX world, but I can't do this any more."
PV0F BROKEN CALLSIGN IN NOVEMBER 2011. Dennis Motschenbacher, K7BV, reports: "I have received a number of QSLs for a PV0F operation during November, 2011. I am certain there was no operation using that call at that time; however I note that P40F was extremely active by R5GA for the CQ WW contest. I will gather November 2011 PV0F cards sent to me for a awhile and then send them off to R5GA assuming the senders miscopied his P40F callsign."
TIME TO UPDATE YOUR GS-IRC CHART. Bill, W9OL, states that this is the 14th year for his GS/IRC Chart and it's time to update the information/ data again. (US Postage rates increase effective January 22, 2012)
