3D2_r  - Preparations for the large multi-national 3D2R DXpedition to Rotuma
         [425DXN 1049] are going according  to plan.  The team will meet  in
         Suva (Fiji) on 22 September and depart for Rotuma on the 25th. They
         expect to be QRV on 27 September and to complete the DXpedition  on
         7 October. 3D2R will be active on 160-10 metres CW, SSB, RTTY,  PSK
         and SSTV, plus 6 and 2m EME, with a focus on Europe and Africa when
         propagation  permits. QSL via  YT1AD and LoTW  (logs to be uploaded
         some  six  months  after  the  expedition).  Further  information -
         including  log  search  (to be updated on a daily basis), suggested
         frequencies and details on how contribute to this expensive project
         - can be found at
4W     - The bulk of the equipment, including  the  linear  amplifiers,  the
         Titanex V160E vertical, Hexbeam and other  antennas,  left  Darwin,
         Australia, on 6 September. It  has  all  arrived  safely  in  Dili,
         Timor-Leste, and is now awaiting the arrival of the 4W6A team  next
         Due  to a  late change of airline timetable, 9M6DXX and 9M6XRO will
         not now arrive  in Dili  before the  afternoon of 16 September. The
         chartered  boat  taking  the  team  and  the  equipment  to  Atauro
         Island has therefore been rescheduled  to later that  afternoon. It
         is  likely that  only  one  or two stations will be on the air that
         day, as the  team will run out of daylight before all the  antennas
         can  be erected. The remainder of the antenna work will commence at
         first light  the  following  morning (approximately 21.15 UTC on 16
         September) and 4W6A should be  fully  operational  by  the  morning
         (UTC) of 17 September.
         4W6A  will  be QRV on all bands 10 to 160 metres, using CW, SSB and
         RTTY with up  to four  stations simultaneously. Col, MM0NDX, is the
         pilot  for 4W6A  and is responsible  for providing  feedback to the
         team. He  may be contacted  at  dxer59[@]  QSL via M0URX,
         direct or bureau  (  The entire  log will be
         uploaded  to LoTW  as quickly  as possible  after  the  end  of the

DX MAGAZINE MOST WANTED SURVEY ---> The DX  Magazine's  annual  Most  Wanted
Survey is being conducted  now  through  15  October.  The  survey  form  is
available at (please note that it is not  a
complete list of all DXCC Entities:  if  you  need  something  that  is  not
listed, simply use the "Additions or Comments"  space  at  the  end  of  the
form). The ST0R confirmations are not expected to be  available  before  the
deadline for the new Entity to be included in this survey,  so  South  Sudan
is not on the form this time.
The overall results will be published in the January-February 2012 issue  of
The DX Magazine, and the world-wide results will be posted to the  web  site
around 15 January 2012 as well. The breakdown  by  mode/Low  Bands  will  be
published in the March-April 2012 issue of the magazine.

IARU REGION 1 HF BAND PLAN ---> The 22nd General Conference of  IARU  Region
1, held at Sun City (South Africa) on 13-19 August,  made  some  changes  to
the Region 1 HF Band Plan. On 40 metres the  CW  contest  preferred  segment
was withdrawn, and four new 10m FM Repeater channels were  introduced  which
required a shift of the 10m FM Simplex channels. The revised Band  Plan  can
be found at
