CCF & OHDXF CRUISE. Once again, the Contest Club Finland (CCF) and the
OH DX Foundation (OHDXF) are proud to announce the 11th CCF & OHDXF Contest
and DX Meeting on January 20-22nd, 2006. The meeting concept will be the
same as last January - a cruise on the Baltic Sea from Helsinki(OH) via
Aland Islands (OH0) to Stockholm (SM) and back to Helsinki. More details
of special cruise packages, agenda, registration etc... are coming soon.
Information from the previous CCF & OHDXF meetings can be found on the

CN, MOROCCO. Jim, W7EJ, will be active as CN2R during the CQ WW DX SSB

KH7K, KURE ISLAND (Update). A press release was sent out by Ward, N0AX,
late last week (dated 8/19/2005) indicating that the K7C team will be
leaving for Kure Island in less than a month. OPDX InterNet Subscribers
will receive the complete press release as an additional bulletin. Excerpts
from the release state that the K7C team will leave the Hawaiian Island
by boat aboard the Machias on September 15th. It will take about 9 days
to sail to Kure Atoll, aided by the trade winds. The return trip will take
another day or two. During the voyage, they hope to be active as K7C/mm
on the HF bands. The success of this phase of the operation depends on
how they can best rig an antenna aboard the Machias. Activity from Kure
is expected to be between September 24th and October 6th. For more details,
please visit the K7C Web page at:

MONTAIN DXPEDITION CANCELLED! Alan, VK4AAR, reports: "It is with regret
that the DXpedition to a remote Dayak mountain village (of Sarawak - 9M8)
has had to be cancelled. Various factors contributed to this unfortunate
circumstance which caused Sengchai Chan (9M8SC) and Festus (9M8FH) and
their team to 'pull the plug' on their late August plans."

OH0, ALAND ISLAND. Ari, OH5DX, will be active as OH0Z during the CQ WW
DX SSB Contest (October 29-30th). Operation class is to be determined,
probably Single-Op and Single-Band (15m) or All-Band entry. QSL via
W0MM.

P5, DEMOCRATIC PEOPLES REPUBLIC OF KOREA. No QSNs reported yet for Dave,
KA2HTV, as P5/KA2HTV as this was being written Sunday morning. There has
been some PIRATED QSNs but nothing legit. During the next few days there
"should" be activity. He announced that his last three days would be
devoted to ham radio. He is expected to be there until August 23rd.

Kure-Osity #2
19 August 2005

Hurry to Kure

The one-month-to-go date passed on the 15th of August and the team is
scurrying about putting the final touches on everything - the radios,
the antennas, computers, food.  Of course, the biggest and most important
part of the expedition is the transportation!  If that doesn't pull through,
nothing else matters as we've seen several times in the past.  The rarer
the QTH, the more difficult the journey, it seems.  Could there be a
correlation here?

When one thinks of Kure Atoll at the far western end of the Hawaiian island
chain, the image of swaying palms, steel guitars, and various concoctions
of rum and fruit juice come to mind.  Nothing could be further from the
actual situation, I assure you!  First of all, Kure is a lot farther from
Honolulu than you might think - 1375 miles (2213 km)!  Travel the same
distance east from Honolulu instead and you'd be more than halfway back
to Los Angeles!

On the way to Kure, we'll pass the islands of Kauai and Niihau, the western
edge of inhabitation, and then have a long open ocean run past Nihoa, the
last of the islands with a Hawaiian name. 400 km (250 miles) later, we
reach Necker Island, 393 miles from Honolulu.  Necker begins an increasingly
austere series of classic desert islands until Midway is reached.  A large
military base until 1993, Midway is being returned to its native state as
a national wildlife refuge.  From Midway, it's about 60 miles further on
to our final destination Kure, the northernmost coral atoll in the world.

(Browse to
http://www.soest.hawaii.edu/GG/HCV/haw_formation.html to find
out more about the Hawaiian islands and how they formed.  Kure is a Hawaii
State Wildlife Refuge and more can be learned about it at
http://www.hawaiianatolls.org/about/kure.php.)

In the past, some DXpeditioners to Kure first flew to Midway via military
or tour aircraft and then took a boat to Kure. (There is a landing strip
at Kure from the Coast Guard LORAN station days, but it is no longer
maintained.)  These flights are no longer available, unfortunately.  The
expense of chartered aircraft ruled out that option, so it will be a
sailor's life for us on board the Machias.  This name should ring a bell
to aficionados of Pacific DX, the Machias having carried the Kingman
Reef/Palmyra expedition in 2000.  Once again, Cap'n Bill Austin will be
in charge of a cargo of wild-eyed hamsters in hot pursuit of DX!

Our captain estimates that the trip will take about 9 days from Honolulu
to Kure, aided by the trade winds.  Weather at this time of year is expected
to be mild. You can keep an eye on Kure weather at
http://www.weatherforyou.com/weather/hawaii/midway+island+naval+air+facility.html.
Coming back we'll have to add another day or two; a total of 19 or more
days at sea.  We'll all be an old salt (or maybe just smell like one) by
the time we get back to the land of the hula girls and ukelele.
"Ahoy mateys, we're listenin' up five we are and we takes no prisoners!"
Browse to the K7C Web site for photos of the Machias.

During the voyage, we hope to be active as K7C/mm on the HF bands.  The
success of this phase of the operation depends on how we can best rig an
antenna aboard the Machias.  Operating at sea will be by-guess-and-by-golly,
but if the 6-watt, battery-powered rig of LI2B aboard the balsa raft
Kon-Tiki (Thor Heyerdahl's pioneering adventure in 1947) could maintain
contact with North America as it floated westward from South America, then
I suspect that we can, too.

This sounds like quite a voyage, doesn't it?  We'll set sail on September
15th and won't be seen again for a month!  Nevertheless, we'll have all
of you to keep us company through the magic of ham radio.  See you on the
bands!
