3Y0X NEWS...........
   PETER I ISLAND DXPEDITION QRT. As your editor was putting the final
   touches on this week's bulletin, the 3Y0X DXpedition went QRT at 1813z
   on December 19th (Last contact was with K8LTG on 17m CW). According
   to their Web page the Peter I team reported at 1900z, February 18th:
   "The weather cleared sufficiently to offload even more of the 'ready to
   go' gear -- and four Team Members! Gary/K9SG, Carlos/NP4IW, Wayne/KU4V
   and Robert/SP5XVY are all safely aboard the ship. The rest of us are
   working in consolidating loads for the helicopter and trying to elevate
   the QSO count even higher than the 81.9K Qs uploaded as of 1400utc today.
   Even though Gary/K9SG (our Team physician) is no longer on the island,
   we were able to persuade him to leave the defibrillator behind (just in
   case)!"  QSL via N2OO. Remember, updates, pictures/videos and logs can
   be found on the 3Y0X Web page at:
   ADDED NOTE: Just before going to print, your editor checked the Peter
   One Web page one more time and saw the following: "This ham radio log
   contains 86,522 QSOs from 8-Feb-2006 0550Z through 19-Feb-2006 1100Z."

   WHAT DXING IS ALL ABOUT? Congrats to John, W1BIH, a veteran DXer, for
   working the 3Y0X. "Why" you say does John get a special mention in the
   OPDX? John is 90 years old. He lives in a retirement community and sold
   his complete station last year when he moved. For John, Peter One Island
   is the last country John needs for DXCC, and he missed the last two Peter
   One Island DXpeditions. However, on Thursday, February 9th, Don, N1DG,
   picked up John and took him to his station. About thirty minutes later
   there was a big smile on John's face. You see, John has now worked his
   last country (335 current), and he can now get back on the top of the
   honor roll. "Oh", by the way, Peter I was his country number 390
   (including deletes)! WOW!!!! Since then, John has worked 3YØX from his
   retirement community station on 20M CW with 100w and a G5RV strung from
   his window 20' above the ground. See John's QSO with 3Y0X at:

   Congrats to the 3Y0X team for having a QSO with Commander Bill McArthur
   on the International Space Station, NA1SS, on February 13th. The 3Y0X
   QSO pushed McArthur's count of DXCC entities worked from space to 104.

CQIR (Ireland Calling: Preliminary Announcement: Win a trip to Ireland!).
In 2007, the Irish Radio Transmitters Society (IRTS) celebrates their 75th
anniversary of its founding in 1932. As part of its jubilee celebrations
the Society is organizing an International Radio Contest, "CQIR - Ireland
Calling". For this contest, references to Ireland means the island of
Ireland and its offshore islands - both EI and GI. CQIR is a once-off
event with a difference - overseas entrants with 75 or more QSOs have the
opportunity to win a trip to Ireland. CQIR is a 24-hour, single-operator
HF CW/SSB contest on the weekend of 29/30 September 2007.  As this is the
fifth full weekend in the month, there is no clash with any established
event. CQIR is a celebration of both the IRTS Jubilee and the "Irish"
amateur-radio community worldwide.  It's where the Irish, at home and
abroad, work the World - and where those of Irish descent identify
themselves by including their ancestral county in the exchange, for
example: County Limerick, County Antrim etc. Full rules and county codes
will appear on the IRTS Web page at:
Also, free software will be provided to support CQIR.
