* PLEASE NOTE: The report "could" contain "Pirate/SLIM" operations or
  more likely a "BUSTED CALLSIGN". As always, you never know - "Work
  First Worry Later" (WFWL).

3B8, MAURITIUS. Operator Jurgen, DJ5HD, is now active as 3B8/DJ5HD until
February 15th. Activity will be on 80-10 meters CW/SSB. He was heard this
past on 40 meters CW after 1900z. QSL via his home callsign.

3Y, PETER I ISLAND. Probably by the time you read this the 3Y0X DXpedition
should be on the air. Activity is expected to start Monday, February 6th,
and last for about 12-14 days. This is probably the biggest DXpedition
to hit the airwave to date. As this was being written, the 3Y0X Web page
reported "Our current ETA at Peter I is Sunday, Feb. 5th at 2300 hours.
Our first reconnaisance flight will be at first light on Monday morning
about 0700Z weather permitting!" It also reports, "First four men ashore
will be Erling/LA6VM, Bob/K4UEE, Ralph/KŘIR and Bob/N6OX. The plan is to
set up OP B and make it self-sufficient before building the main camp.
This way if WX deteriorates, we will have a 'foothold' on the island
with two stations QRV. If WX is OK, we will proceed with building the
camp before going on the air." This operation should be fun to work with
9 stations on and with activity on 160-10/6/2 meters and 70cm. QSL via
N2OO (Please read the note under QSL INFO AND NEWS...). Don, N1DG, Chief
3Y0X Pilot Station, states, "For up to the minute news on Peter I including
videos from the Island the best source is the Peter I Web site.... There
will be no releases by the team other than what we post as news on the
Web site on a daily basis." The Web site is:

travel to Terra del Fuego (IOTA SA-008) and Patagonia from February 3-13th.
They will be using the callsigns LU/G0BBL and LU/G0HFX. They are planning
to be active on 15/20/30/40 meters, depending on the band conditions. Chris
informed OPDX that the Radio Club of Ushuaia, LU8XW, has invited them to
use their club station and let them work from IOTA SA-008 during their
visit. The probable date is February 8th; the Radio Club of Ushuaia's
monthly club night. This is probably going to be the best chance to work
them as LU8XW since they have a contest grade club station. See the
following Web page for details at:
Jan and Chris will leave February 13th on the Tall Ship "BARK EUROPA"
and will be active on the high seas using the callsign PA5D/mm. Once they

about to go QRT from the scientific Brasilian base on St. Peter and St.
Paul Rocks, has posted some photos of his previous expeditions to the
Rocks on the following Web site:
PLEASE NOTE: The QSL information on that site looks to now be obsolete.
Joca has posted in some detail on how to go about QSLing the
current PY0S/PS7JN operation.

QSL INFO AND NEWS..................
  QSL BUREAU ACTIVITY ON A DECLINE??? (Story continues!) Nenad, VE3EXY,
  informs OPDX that the VE QSL Bureau has also experienced a decline over
  the last 6 years. He states, "... a decline of 60 kg in the year 2005,
  or almost 300 kg less than in its best days (2001). The rule of thumb is
  that 1 kg = 333 QSL cards (e.g. 500 kg = 165000 cards). This trend is
  mostly driven by solar activity, but also by increasing postal costs,
  aging DX population, and electronic QSLing alternatives."
  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.

  3Y0X, CE0Z AND XR9A QSL INFO. QSL Manager Bob, N2OO, reports that QSLs for
  XR9A/8, XR9A/MM and XR9A can be sent in the same envelope via N2OO. He
  asks that QSLs for CE0Z sent via N2OO be sent in a separate envelope. For
  more detailed info, go to:
  Bob also asks that QSLs for 3Y0X be sent in a separate envelope via N2OO.
  3Y0X QSL info:    
  Sending cards for multiple calls in one envelope will SERIOUSLY delay your
  QSL. Please send separately if at all possible!

  QSL Manager Emir, 9A6AA, informs OPDX that the logs for 9A150NT (all
  9A counties) are available at:
  Logs will be updated from time to time during 2006. More information
  about the special event station, 9A150NT, and the "Nikola Tesla Award"
  is available at:

  NEW QSL MANAGER. Phil, N1KI, informs OPDX that he is now the QSL
  Manager for the T40C contest station. The station is currently manned
  by Winston/CO2WF and Willy/CO2UG. Look for T40C to be active in the
  important CW Contest such as CQ WW DX, CQ WW WPX, ARRL International
  and possible ARRL 10m International Contest.

  NOT THE QSL MANAGER. Raul, DK3KC, who is the QSL Manager for their local
  section of the DARC, reports that DL5NAM is "NOT" the QSL Manager for
  ST2M and ST2BSS. In the past he has received a lot of QSL cards for
  DL5NAM (for ST2M and ST2BSS). All of the QSL cards are being returned
  to the sender via the bureau.

  TOP 5 QSL MANAGER SURVEY HAS ENDED. John, K1XN, announced this past
  week that the "2005 TOP 5 QSL Manager Survey" has ended. John states,
  "The survey this year was lacking in interest by the DX community as a
  whole. Less than 100 responses were received from USA/CANADA. Less than
  a thousand responses in total were received. Nothing like the response
  from years past. Maybe this indicates that everyone is getting their
  contacts confirmed by LoTW or eQsl!! It distrubs me that DXers will not
  take a few minutes to respond to a survey to honor a group of guys/gals
  that give of so much time and money so the rest of us can enjoy receiving
  awards and other benefits of DXing. I guess times are changing more
  rapidily than I thought. The Top 5 survey WILL NOT be conducted for 2006.
  Maybe this will give DXers time to work some stations and have the benefit
  of using the best QSL service in the world 'QSL Managers'." Here is the
  complete list of the nominees for the Top 5 awards for 2005:
    CE6TBN    EA5KB    IZ8CCW     KU9C       N7RO       VE3XN     WV7Y
    DJ2MX     EA7FTR   IZ8CGS     LU4DXU     ON5NT      VK9NS     YB9BU
    DJ2YE     F6AJA    IZ8EDJ     M5AAV      PA3GIO     W2GHK
    DJ3HJ     G3AB     IZ8FWN     N1WON      PA4GIO     W3HNK
    DJ9ZB     G3SWH    JE1LET     N2OO       RU6FZ      W5UE
    DK7YY     G3SXW    K1BV       N3SL       RW6HS      W7EJ
    DL4XS     G3TXF    K2PF       N4AA       RZ3EC      WA3HUP
    DL7AFS    HB9BOU   K3PD       N4JR       SM1TDE     WA4JTK

    DL7DF     IT9DAA   K8LEE      N5FTR      UA4WHX     WB3DNA
    EA4URE    IT9YRE   KB6NAN     N6RT       VE3HO      WD9EWK

  The Top 5 QSL Managers that received the most nominations will be
  selected and will be announced very soon. An award plaque or plate
  for a plaques will be awarded via mail to the winners. John thanks
  all of you that responded with your choices of the best of the best
  QSL Manager world wide. He also thanks all QSL Managers for helping
  the rest of us enjoy our hobby of DXing. He certainly hopes that many
  rewards come to you for giving of your time and money to make the rest
  of us happy..... "QSL MANAGERS ARE #1" de John K1XN
