  REALTIME BAND CONDITIONS WEB SITE <http://www.bandconditions.com>:
  The purpose of this experimental Web site is to provide 24-7-365 actual
  (REALTIME) band condition information to CW QRPp, QRPe and CW/SSB for
  Contesters interested in increasing their scores. It can also be of
  benefit to other Radio Amateurs to determine band conditions for Nets
  and casual QSO's. This information is NOT based on any software pre-
  dictions or any kind of satellite based readings. It is based on a
  new Ionospheric sounding method called "HF Ionospheric Interferometry"
  which operates very similarly to the PolSAR system used by NASA.

  G3MRC ETC. Phil Whitchurch, G3SWH and AD5YS, reports the following:
  "I am pleased to announce that the backlog of all outstanding direct
  QSL requests for Joe, G3MRC's, numerous callsigns (7Q7BP, 5X1P, 9Q5MRC,
  9U5MRC, C91MR, C91MR/3, C93MR, C96MR, C97MR, G3MRC, G3MRC/C9, G3MRC/9Q5,
  9X5/G3MRC, Z38/G3MRC, 5H/9Q5MRC and ZB2/G3MRC) have now all been processed
  and mailed. 
    Some of the logs are still on paper and I am working on digitizing
  them with a view to uploading them to ClubLog, LoTW and my own web
  site. This will probably take a few more weeks.
    When Joe became a Silent Key in early May 2017 his RSGB membership
  lapsed. Consequently, please note that, following a decision by the
  RSGB QSL Bureau not to process outgoing cards for non members, paper
  QSLs for this station are ONLY available DIRECT with adequate return
  postage or via the OQRS facility on my site <www.g3swh.org.uk>."

repairs from Hurricane damage.

XX9, MACAO (PRESS RELEASE #1). Alex, PY2WAS, 2018 Macao Dxpedition Team
Leader, sent out the following press release on November 15th [edited]:
After 8 months of preparation for this DXpedition, we are proud to announce
a DXpedition to Macao (XX9) from the night of March 9th, 2018 to March 17th,
  Although this DXpedition does not count on donations, participants will
be supporting all costs for transporting 215 kgs of equipments, as well
as costs with air tickets, accommodation, meals and so on.
  The team will be formed by Bom/XX9LT, Leo/PP1CZ, Junior/PR7AB, Claudio/
PY2MC, Alex/PY2SEX, Alex/PY2WAS, Miguel/PY3MM, Fernando/PY4BZ, Herminio/
PY5HSD, Beto/PY6RT and Jim/PY7XC.
  CTT (Post Office and Telecommunications Agency of Macao) has not confirmed
our callsign yet, but all forms have already been signed and submitted and
Bom is supporting the team with it locally. It is expected for the next days
and will be communicated accordingly.
  This team plans to work from 10m to 80m. 160m may be eventually worked
as a non-priority band. Three stations will work 24 hours, provided that
1 station will be focusing digital modes, especially RTTY and FT8. We will
be counting on 6 antennas (2 beams, 2 verticals, 1 folded dipole and 1
sloper double bazooka). There will be a spare transceiver in case of
replacement need.
  This DXpedition will count on real time updating log to ClubLog. OQRS
system at ClubLog will be made available to QSL orders by bureau or direct
under the management of PP1CZ.
  Thanks to Tony/PY2DY, Fernando/PY2LED, Ric/PY2PT, Carlos/PY2VM and Fred/
PY2XB for all the support they provided to this team.
  It is important to highlight that a bootcamp testing operation was held
in the first week of September/2017 to test all equipments and potential
interactions among the stations at the super contest site of PX2A.
  Additional care will be taken with preferable QRGs to prevent overlapping
as regards other big DXpeditions at that time, such as Spratly Island and
Easter Island.
  Thanks to all ham radio community for their enthusiasm and hunting this
team in the air.

3C0L & 3C1L — > Yuris, YL2GM and Kaspars, YL3AIW have uploaded to Club Log
the last part of their 3C1L log, which now contains  43,612 QSOs with 14,811
unique calls. About 1400 QSOs were made  on  9-10 October, the rest from  27
October to 12 November.  While on  Bioko  Island (AF-010), Equatorial Guinea
they operated CW (77,41%),  SSB (17,83%) and RTTY (4,76%).  On 13-25 October

via ClubLog’s OQRS (direct or bureau),  or direct to  YL2GN;  email requests

425 DX NEWS  MAGAZINE —> The  October 2017  issue  is  now  available  for
download at http://www.425dxn.org/index.php. [TNX IZ3EBA]
5L3BI — > The 5L3BI team are now able to  share  the  actual  difficulties
they encountered during their attempt of activating  Baiyah Island (AF-111):
“Had we failed? Yes.  Had we escaped without any injuries or harm? Yes.  Did
we make the right decision?  Yes.  Will we attempt it again in  the  future?
No”, they say, because “after experiencing and witnessing so much  of  local
customs, none of the team are prepared to put themselves into this situation
again”.  The full  story  is  well  worth  a  reading, and can be  found  on
“We are ever so thankful to those DX Groups, Foundations and individuals who
have already requested for us to keep their donations and to use towards the
expense of this project.  We also invite anyone who has made a donation  and
would like it  returned  to please contact  us  (dxer59[@]gmail.com) in  the
first instance so we can make arrangements to repay it as soon as possible”.
QSL VIA G3SWH —> Phil, G3SWH reports that “the backlog of all  outstanding
direct  QSL  requests  for  Joe, G3MRC’s  numerous  callsigns (7Q7BP,  5X1P,
9Q5MRC,  9U5MRC, C91MR,  C91MR/3,  C93MR,  C96MR,  C97MR,  G3MRC,  G3MRC/C9,
G3MRC/9Q5, 9X5/G3MRC, Z38/G3MRC, 5H/9Q5MRC and ZB2/G3MRC) have now all  been
processed and mailed. Some of the logs are still on paper  and  I am working
on digitising them with a view to uploading them  to  Club Log,  LoTW and my
own web site (www.g3swh.org.uk). This will probably take a few  more weeks”.
Joe’s RSGB  membership  lapsed  at  the  time  of  his  passing  (May 2017).
Consequently, as the RSGB QSL bureau will not process outgoing cards for non
members, paper QSLs  for  these  stations are  only  available  direct  with
adequate return or via the OQRS on Phil’s website above.
QSL VIA SM4VPZ —> Lily, SM4VPZ is the QSL manager for 5X1JM,  7R7R,  7U9C,
7X2JV, 7X2WEK, 7Y9GH, 7Y9LI, 7Y9OU, 7Y9SE, 7Y9TH and 9N7ZK.  QSL direct only
(Liliana  Aspelin,  Hertig  Karlsgatan 21B  lgh 1201,  SE-682 30  Filipstad,
Sweden), as she does not use the bureau. See qrz.com for PayPal details.
VK9AR — > Mike AB5EB (CW), Mike AD5A (CW) and  Craig VK5CE (SSB)  operated
as VK9AR (https://ashmorereef.wordpress.com/) from Ashmore Reef (OC-216) for
two days and a half, and logged 8173 QSOs with Asia (50%), Europe (33%)  and
North  America  (13%).  On  the  return  journey  to  Broome, there  was  an
opportunity for the bird researchers they were travelling with to do a quick
visit to Browse Island (OC-234). The IOTA team “had no choice of the arrival
/departure time or length of stay” on the  island, but  “made the effort  to
get it on the air with 2 stations  for  as long as we could”.  720 QSOs were
logged on 20 and 17 metres between 21.31 UTC on 11 November and 00.40 UTC on
12 November. Unfortunately is was too late in the local morning  for Europe,
and “only some got in the log”. Logsearch and OQRS for VK9AR and VK9AR/6 are
now available on Club Log.  Both the  operations have been approved for IOTA
QSLs received direct or through managers: 4V1G, 5A1AL, 5A5A,  9V1YC,  A25BE,

Rotuma Island DXpedition

Operators Tony/3D2AG, Heye/DJ9RR, Erno/ DK2AMM, Hans/DL6JGN and Ronald/PA3EWP will be active as 3D2EU from Rotuma Island (OC-060) between February 23rd and March 16th, 2018.

They will have two radio locations on the western peninsula of Rotuma. One in Fapufa in the south. This is the annual QTH of Tony. The second QTH is in Maftoa on the north coast.

This is a joint operation using the resources of Tony and the European group. Activity will be on 160-10 meters using CW, SSB and the Digital modes. The team will use two stations (2x K3, 1x Expert 1, 3k-FA and 1x Tokyo Hy-Power HL-1.1KFX), a Spiderbeam and vertical antennas.

Subject to a reliable Internet connection, they will upload the log to ClubLog on a daily basis. Otherwise the complete log will be uploaded upon their return. QSL via DK2AMM (OQRS, direct, by the Bureau, LoTW).

They now have a Web page online at: http://www.rotuma2018.de
