we would give everyone a 'heads-up'. The RZS Amateur Radio Club had such
a wonderful time last March (2005) in Dominica, that we have made plans
to return and reserved several cottages at Sea Cliffs for the March 2006
WPX. Last March we made 75 people very happy on 160 meters and several

on AO-51, SO-50, AO-27, PO-28 (let's hope) and if I have room for SSB
equipment I will operate FO-29, VO-52 and possibly AO-7. The ISS never
travels far enough North for me to take a shot at it. There are no plans
to take any HF gear, whatever that is ;-)."

P4, ARUBA. By the time you read this, operators Gerard/KE9I (P40QX),
Eric/K9GY (P40GY), Mike/AJ9C (P40C), Nancy/KB9NSC, and Phil/N9LAH
(P4/N4LAH) should be active until August 20th. They will be active

P5, NORTH KOREA. The following was sent out early in the week by Mike,
NA5U, on August 2nd.

  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.

  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. For information about the LSDXA, visit the Web page

  ADDED NOTES: Bruce, KK5DO, reports (via his Web page) that Dave, KA2HTV,
  will operate as P5/KA2HTV from North Korea on August 9-23rd. Online logs
  will not be avialable during the operation, as  Dave uses paper logs and
  the data will have to  be entered into a computer when he gets back. QSL
  via KK5DO: Bruce Paige, P.O. Box 310,  Alief, TX 77411-0310, USA. "Please
  limit your contacts to one", Bruce says. "Many hams were not able to work
  Ed, P5/4L4FN. Please allow those that did not get P5 before a chance to
  work P5 now. If you are in the P5/4L4FN log, do not send for a QSL card
  from this operation". The KK5DO Web page is:
  As this bulletin was being written/prepared, word was released on Friday,
  August 5th, that Dave was now enroute to North Korea. Reports from Dave's
  neighbor is that he left for China Friday morning at 5:00 AM where he
  will spend 5 days before taking the next leg to North Korea. Once Dave
  enters North Korea, he will no longer have internet or cellphone usage.
  He will be able to operate from 1 hour before sunset until 1 hour after
  sunrise. Remember that the last 3 days of the trip are extra days that
  Dave will use for as much operating as possible.

VU4, ANDAMAN ISLANDS (Hamfest in Portblair!). The editor of the "Daily
DX" received a letter from Mr. S. Suri, VY2MY, Chairman of the National
Institute of Amateur Radio (NIAR), informing him of a possible hamfest
in Portblair, Andaman Islands, during the Christmas and New Year holiday
between December 25, 2005, and January 10th, 2006 (any 3 days in between).
This will also include possible foreign amateurs radio activity from
VU4-land. The reason: It seems that the Indian Government was quite
impressed with the VU4 Dpedition and Tsunami relief operations, as well
as the operators, government and NAIR officials favorable welcome at the
USA's 2005 Dayton HamVention and the 2005 German Hamradio (Friedrichshafen).
NIAR is now conducting a dialogue with the government of India on a regular
basis. The officials are interested in knowing how many foreign Hams would
be serious in attending a Hamfest, as well as granting them special
permission to operate their amateur radio stations during Hamfest and
possibly thereafter. If interested in attending and operating, NIAR
suggests to E-mail Prof. Ram Kapse, Lieutenant Governor of Andaman &
Nicobar Islands, at Port Blair, India, via :
