HAM IN SPACE NEWS. Congratulations to International Space Station (ISS)
Commander Bill McArthur, KC5ACR, for achieving "Worked All States" (WAS)
and "Worked All Continents" (WAC)from NA1SS. He contines to work on his
DXCC as well. On Sunday afternoon, January 29th, just as this was being
written, your editor heard Bill state he now has 95 countries. ADDED NOTE:
Your editor would like to thank Bill for the QSO on Tuesday morning,
January 24th.
  PLEASE NOTE: An interesting event will be taking place this week. OPDX
readers may want to drag out the old 2 meter HT for this event. Bill
McArthur and his crewmate, Valery Tokarev, are scheduled to do a space
walk on February 3rd and will release "SuitSat-1". As the "ARRL Letter"
states, "--quite possibly the most unusual Earth satellite ever. SuitSat
consists of a surplus Russian Orlan space suit converted into a
transmit-only satellite with an FM downlink frequency of 145.990 MHz.
Using the callsign RS0RS, it will transmit voice messages, telemetry and
an SSTV image on a nine-minute cycle as it orbits Earth. The batteries
powering the satellite are expected to last about a week, and SuitSat's
free-floating, decaying orbit should cause it to re-enter Earth's
atmosphere after some six weeks in space. The SuitSat signal should be
strong enough to hear using a VHF transceiver or scanner and a simple
antenna." For more details on this event and pictures of SuitSat, please
visit the following Web pages (Plenty of interesting reading!):

was informed that due to a big storm on the rocks this past weekend,
Joca's PC has gotten wet and stopped working. During the day, the sea
waves often collide with the rocks making a big spray of salt water all
over the rocks. Fortunately, Joca's radio was in a safe place during the
storm (under the radio table), and it seems the radio has not suffered any
kind of damage. Joca will keep working on SSB with just 100w using a 160m
dipole tuned for on all other bands. However, he is now logging on paper
and there will be no more digital mode activity until he repairs his PC.

QSL INFO AND NEWS..................
  Bureau Manager, provided OPDX with his annual report on the ARRL's
  8th Area Bureau (2005) activities. The ARRL Central 8th Area Incoming
  QSL Bureau received approximately 110,905 QSL cards in 2005 for
  redistribution. This is down almost 20% compared to 138,236 handled in
  2004. They handled 154,054 cards in 2003. From these numbers and trends,
  you can see that LoTW and decreasing sunspots are affecting QSL volumes.
  (Could it also be a decreasing population of active DXers?) The monthly
  breakout is as follows:
            Jan. - 6,361    May  - 16,102     Sep. - 4,676
            Feb. - 8,083    Jun. - 5,417      Oct. - 4,387
            Mar. - 10,401   Jul. - 11,321     Nov. - 18,773
            Apr. - 8,947    Aug. - 10,891     Dec. - 5,5466
  PLEASE NOTE: It would be interesting to hear from other area QSL Bureaus
  to see if they are experiencing the same decline. QSL Bureau Managers
  are welcome to send a small report to OPDX.

  Phil, G3SWH, is pleased to announce that he has taken over the QSLing
  duties for 9G5XA and 3C5XA effective immediately. He has copies of all
  the past logs and is awaiting delivery of cards from the operator, G3XAQ.
  Direct requests with SAE and adequate return postage is preferred, but
  E-mail and bureau requests will also be processed, but please be aware

  7Q7RM LOG CLOSING. Allan, G0IAS, QSL Manager for Ron MacFarlane, 7Q7RM,
  who died last year, has announced that he will permanently close the logs
