DXCC NEWS from ARRL DX Desk 
Now through December 31, 2005  
Tab VU4 QSL PRESS RELEASE. Bill Moore, NC1L, ARRL DXCC Manager, sent out the following press release last week: Clarification re: VU4RBI/VU4NRO QSL cards for DXCC credit. We are accepting VU4RBI/VU4NRO QSO cards. A few cards have been rejected on the basis of incomplete information on the cards. We apologize to Bharathi, NIAR, et.al. for any misunderstandings. If you received a QSL card complete with all data (time, date, band, mode and callsign), there is no problem. If you have a QSL card with less than complete data (callsign only, missing time/date, etc.) we will need to see the card at HQ. This is usual procedure. Blank cards and cards missing information are always subject to inspection at HQ. Do not add the missing information. As always we strive to maintain the highest integrity possible in the DXCC program. Ms. Prasad has graciously agreed to supply additional log information where necessary. If you have only an incomplete card, do not alter the card by filling in the missing information. Simply send us the card, and we will try to obtain the fill. If you expect a direct QSL, it would be easier on everyone involved if you would wait for the direct card.

This link should answer most of your questions on DXCC program issues. Here you will find the program rules, the current and deleted DXCC lists and all of the forms needed to participate. Also, the ARRL DX Bulletins can be found here. If, after reading the information here, and you still have questions regarding the DXCC Program, contact the DXCC Desk. The DXCC Web site is at: http://www.arrl.org/awards/dxcc

DXCC LISTINGS NOW AVAILABLE ON THE ARRL WEB SITE: According to the "ARRL Letter" this week: The ARRL Web site now features up-to-date listings of DXCC awards earned. The new system shows every issued DXCC award known to ARRL's computerized DXCC system with the exception of individual standings for 5BDXCC. ARRL Membership Services Manager Wayne Mills, N7NG, says the Web site listing is even more complete than the DXCC Yearbook ever was, since the printed list did not list inactive band-accounts for the previous year. "This will list everything and everybody," Mills emphasized. "The new system makes available a separate listing for each DXCC award type--band or mode." Even more important, Mills notes, is that it essentially renders obsolete the manually generated monthly and yearly reports. "Under the new system, DXCC listings will be updated daily," he emphasized. The DXCC standings of all ARRL members will remain in dark type. Call signs of non-members who have not submitted credits for 10 years or more are in grayed-out type. Each listing by band or mode is complete in a separate Adobe PDF file. The largest listing (DXCC Mixed) now runs to more than 50 pages, but the size of the PDF file is only about 150 kbytes because of file compression. Printing format options include US letter-sized or ISO A4 paper. The DXCC listings can be found at: http://www.arrl.org/awards/dxcc/#listings.

Bill Moore, NC1L, ARRL DXCC Manager, informs OPDX of the following Somalia 6O/T5 operations: "Effective immediately, the ARRL DXCC Branch will accept QSLs for operation taking place in the Somaliland (northwestern Somalia) and Puntland (northeastern Somalia) autonomous areas as well as the southern and central areas of Somalia. Operations possessing written permission from any recognized authority that is acknowledged to be in control of a particular region will be accredited. These QSLs will count for the Somali Democratic Republic (Somalia). QSLs for past operations will be accepted where proper documentation has been submitted. This is subject to change based on future developments in Somalia."

KH7, KURE ANNOUNCEMENT 
Now through October 10, 2005  
Tab 1 March 2005

ANNOUNCING THE 2005 EXPEDITION TO KURE ATOLL

We are pleased to announce a DXpedition to Kure Atoll, at the extreme northwestern end of the Hawaiian Islands, during Sep-Oct, 2005. The callsign for the operation will be K7C. Kure is currently #10 on DX-Magazines Most-Wanted List, and #1 on the German DX Foundations list. The radio team includes Bob KK6EK (Expedition Leader), Garry NI6T (co-organizer), Alan AD6E (co-organizer), Mike N6MZ, Ward NAX, John N7CQQ, Charlie W6KK, Franz DJ9ZB, Max I8NHJ, Alan K6SRZ (Expedition doctor), and Kathryn K6DZL (Educational program), plus two more radio operators to be selected. The team will be QRV with four stations on all bands/modes, including 6m and RTTY. In addition to the radio operations, the group is developing an innovative real-time interactive web-satellite-based system called DXA. This system will enable the DXer to see and interact with activities of the operation as they happen, using any web browser. The group also will be carrying out several scientific projects in collaboration with naturalists on the atoll to help restore and protect its fragile ecosystem. Finally, the group is developing an educational program that will utilize the DXA resource to enable students to learn from and interact with the onsite team. The project is being strongly supported by ICOM and the Pacific DX Group (Kimo KH7U and Patrick NH6UY). The team and project will be visible at Visalia and Dayton. QSL Manager is Tom N4XP, %K4TSJ, Box 1, Watkinsville, GA 30677. The team welcomes comments and suggestions, pilots, programmers, and contributions. The project is being managed by Cordell Expeditions, a nonprofit research organization with a 25-year history of successful expeditions to remote oceanic sites. For more information, please e-mail info@cordell.org (use "Kure7Cordell" in the Subject line) or any member listed above, and look at the full description on www.cordell.org (click on the 2005 Kure Expedition link).

GERMANY NEWS  
Now through August 5, 2005  
Tab GERMANY NEWS (New Prefixes on the air!). Stefan, DL1ELY, explains why you have been hearing all these new prefixes: "Germany has started to assign DQ and DR-prefixes. Beside that, club stations can now apply for 2x1-callsigns like DK2A. All numbers 0-9 mean "club station", there are no 2x1 callsigns for individuals. One more important change: While all DP-prefixes were extraterritorial area before (like DPGVN, DPPOL in Antarctica, DPEPO Munich European Patent Office), now only DP-DP2 are extraterritorial. 2x1-Callsigns DP3A-DP9Z are "regular short callsigns" for Club stations. Please note there are still no 'DI' hamradio callsigns in DL."

Sunday June 12 through January 30, 2006  
Tab (Press Release #2006-1). The following was sent out by Ralph/KIR and Bob/K4UEE on June 9th: "The Peter I DXpedition is scheduled for early 2006. We are pleased to announce that contracts have been signed with a two Chilean companies to provide a vessel and helicopter for the DXpedition to Peter I, Antarctica during Jan/Feb. 2006. The actual dates of the operation will be released on or about Sept. 1, 2005, but the general time frame will be between Jan. 16 and the end of February 2006. The actual dates depend on the vessel scheduling and weather considerations. It is the team's objective to be at Peter I for a minimum of two weeks with the actual operating time to be determined by weather and setup time. Because of the likelihood of it being a very long time before Peter I will be activated again, we have set some very high QSO goals. Nine stations will be established on the island and QRV on all bands 160-10m, on the most common communications modes. Most of the members of the 2005 team will participate in the 2006 DXpedition, but there are several slots available for new team members. Contact either: K4UEE (mallphin@aol.com) or KIR (rfedor@cloudnet.com) for more information. This adventure is not for the faint-hearted! Sponsors from the 2005 attempt are on board for 2006. See www.peterone.com for a complete list. This is a very expensive project. Although the team will be putting up approximately 70% of the DXpeditions expenses, additional contributions from sponsors are being sought. Contributions by check or PayPal are very much appreciated. It is easy, just go to www.peterone.com . Thanks for your support! We will be posting DXpedition updates periodically, so please check the website often."

HA, HUNGARY 
Monday August 1 through August 30 6-Meter Experimental Operation 
Tab 60 HA stations to appear on 6 meters. Chris, HA5X, informs OPDX readers: "6m is not allocated for the amateur radio service in Hungary. Haros Radioclub (HA5HRK) has requested a 30 day experimental 6m licence at the National Communications Authority in Hungary for 25 stations. Aim of the experiment is to test whether interference with television broadcast is managable, and if the band can be opened for amateur radio use before terrestrial TV broadcasting comes to an end. The authority has shown a very positive attitude and invited two other amateur radio organizations to take part in the experiment with their sets of stations. This means that a maximum of 60 licenced HA stations may appear on 50MHz in the period 1-30 August. There will be no major mode restrictions (digi-modes also allowed), but a limit of 5W ERP (0dB antennas). As the aim of the experiment is to finally get a permanent okay for 6m activities, and the authorities are watching the activity with their equipment, we hope that all stations will keep to the rules, ie. power restriction. No single QSO is worth the whole future of 6m in Hungary."

P5, North Korea 
Tuesday August 9 through August 23  
Tab > From the Lone Star DX Association:

For immediate release August 2, 2005

The Lone Star DX Association in conjunction with Dr. David Borenstein announces the following:

Dr. David Borenstein, KA2HTV, will be traveling to Pyongyang, Democratic People's Republic of Korea, "North Korea" during the month of August. He has received written permission from the "North Korean" government to operate as P5/KA2HTV during his stay. While radio operating is not the primary reason for his visit, Dr. Borenstein hopes to be able to operate 1-2 hours a day and will stay an additional three days devoted entirely to radio operation. For security reasons, he will only operate SSB and primarily 20 meters. Dr. Borenstein will arrive on August 9th and depart on the 23rd. QSL requests should be sent to KK5DO. Operation from P5 is at the pleasure of the host country so the DX community should keep their collective fingers crossed that all goes well and they do not change their minds.

The ARRL has reviewed the Dr. Borenstein's plan and if and when P5/KA2HTV occurs, it will likely count.

Dr. Borenstein notes that while his operating time will be limited, the success of this operation will lead to further P5 operations in the near future. Much of the equipment being taken will remain there, pre-positioned for subsequent operations.

The Lone Star DX Association (LSDXA) is the sponsoring DX organization for this operation. --Mike Thomas, NA5U

The press release from the Lone Star DX Association regarding P5/KA2HTV contained the following statement: "The ARRL has reviewed the Dr. Borenstein's plan and if and when P5/KA2HTV occurs, it will likely count." Since this statement was unattributed, and is in any event an unusual statement for the League to make in advance of an operation, I thought some official verification would be in order. A short while ago I received the following statement from Wayne Mills, N7NG, the ARRL Membership Services Manager: "The documentation submitted by KA2HTV in support of any operation will be reviewed according to the normal standards of the DXCC program." Of course I wish Dave the best of luck for his upcoming P5 operation. Rich K2WR President, NJDXA

Hopefully propagation will be better than last year. I have 6 meter on Nevis, but not on St. Kitts. Would like to operate more 40/80 meters and maybe 160 meters from Nevis. Anyway, I will operate as propagation allows 160-6 meters. When on Nevis, 6 meters will be on all the time and would really like to make a lot of 6 meter contacts. Please, no special requests/schedules as I have a lot of friends there and my time is not always my time." QSL via KJ4UY with SASE for U.S. stations or SAE & return postage for DX stations.
