        will  operate  mainly  CW  running  100-500  watts  into  multiband

E3     - Zorro, JH1AJT started activity as E30FB at 12 UTC on  17  September
        and made some 1400 QSOs by 2 UTC on the 19th. He  will  try  to  be
        QRV as much as possible in his limited spare time  until  the  22nd
        [425DXN  1219],  with  better  signals  as  the  missing  amplifier
        eventually made it to Asmara.  Activity  has  been  on  15  and  20
        metres so far, with operations on  17  metres  planned  during  the
        weekend. He has no access to the Internet,  so  logsearch  will  be
        available only when he returns home. "We  will  also  provide  OQRS
        and LoTW confirmation in due course", JA1TRC says. Zorro  does  not

OJ0    - On  20 September Juha, OH9MM, and  Martti,  OH2BH  will  attempt  a
        landing on Market Reef to put OJ0AM on the air for one week on  all
        bands. "They also plan to proceed with an experiment  of  real  and
        virtual  Amateur  Radio  coexisting  by  conducting  a   first-ever
        activity from Market in Virtual Reality".
        This operation is part of the celebrations  for the Golden  Jubilee
        the OH-DX-Ring (OH2AM), created back in August  1964 by "a bunch of
        schoolboys" whose idea was "to form  a  club  focusing  on  DX  and
        contests  and  reaching  out  beyond  the  borders  of  their   own
        country". Read the "Recap of OH-DX-Ring"  on,
        and expect also OH0AM (Aland Islands) and OF2AM to  appear  on  the
        bands during the next coming weeks. QSLs via OH2BH,  with  "special
        certificate  size  combo  OF2AM/OH0AM/OJ0AM  QSL  cards  for  those
        contacting all three stations". [TNX OH2BH]

        Island (EU-125) from 27 September to 3 October. He will be  QRV  on
        80-10 metres SSB. QSL via home call, bureau or  direct,  plus  LoTW

        October. Complete information is expected in due  course.  [TNX  DX
VK9L   - In less than four weeks VK9DLX will be QRV from  Lord  Howe  Island
        [425DXN 1210]. The main team will arrive on 12  October,  but  some
        team members will arrive a few days earlier. SP5XVY will arrive  on
        5 October, DF7TH on the 9th, DJ5IW and DJ2HD on the 10th. So  don't
        be surprised if you hear VK9DLX some days  earlier  than  expected;
        the main focus of this advance operation will be RTTY. The  website
        for the DXpedition is at

SAC 2014 ---> Organized by the Nordic Amateur Radio Union, the  Scandinavian
Activity Contest's  aim  is  for  Scandinavian  stations  to  work  as  many
non-Scandinavian stations as possible and vice versa. Scandinavian  stations
are defined as  located  in  the  Aland  Islands,  Denmark,  Faroe  Islands,
Finland, Greenland, Iceland, Jan Mayen, Market Reef,  Norway,  Svalbard  and
Sweden. The dates and times for this year's contest (SAC) are:
CW   20-21 September (12 UTC to 12 UTC)
SSB  11-12 October (12 UTC to 12 UTC)
Complete information of the SAC events can be found at

W1AW WAS ---> Look for ARRL Centennial stations W1AW/5 from New  Mexico  and
W1AW/7 from Idaho to be on the air starting at 00.00 UTC  on  24  September 
until 23.59 UTC on the 30th. Complete information  on  the  ARRL  Centennial
QSO Party can be found at

YJ0X ---> "Everything is on schedule for our arrival in Vanuatu  on  October
3rd", the team reported on 15 September (  "We
hope to have at least two of the stations working and at  least  one  aerial
up for that evening. The emphasis  the  next  day  will  be  installing  the
contest band antennas all ready for the Oceania DX contest SSB leg later  on
that day. Soon after the contest, we'll be adding  the  WARC  band  antennas
and 6m set-up, and when time permits the 160m antenna.  We will  be  looking
for openings to South America and Africa, the two  continents  most  needing
YJ for a new one, so if you're outside these areas, please QRX for the  very
short time it will take to work through callers. Regarding the  Oceania  SSB
and CW legs, Clublog real-time uploads will  be  switched  off  during  this
time and uploaded soon after the contest ends".
