* 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. Jun, OE1ZKC/JH4RHF, will be on the air from 3B8-land on
his way to/back from the 3B9C DXpedition, March 14-16th and April 1-3th.
His callsign will be decided upon arrival. He will operate from 3B8CF's
shack. Jun will probably be on 40-10 meters, SSB, CW, RTTY and SSTV on
request. QSL via OE1ZKC.

3B9C UPDATE. Project Star Reach (3B9C) has released "Bulletin No.4" this
past week and it can be found on their Web page. Excerpts from the bulletin
state "Remember, 3B9C is expected to hit the bands around midnight local
(2000 GMT) on Friday 19th March, so not long to go now. The container of
equipment has arrived on the island, and a final planning meeting has been
held in the UK, attended by 17 of the team members. We are also delighted
to announce that Robert, 3B9FR, will join the team as a full member, taking
time off work to be a part of 3B9C (he runs the island's radio station).
This will probably be the last bulletin before we head out to 3B9, but we
will continue to post bulletins from the island, both on our Web page and
to the major newsletters." A QSL route has been annouced. The bulletin
states, "Arrangements are now in place for QSLing. This is a non-trivial
task, with possibly in excess of 100,000 QSL requests to be handled in due
course. The QSLing task will therefore be shared by a team of volunteers,
centrally co-ordinated through StarQSL, a piece of software developed
especially by John, G3WGV, for the purpose. Among other things, StarQSL
allows bureau and Web requests to be handled (checked, validated) by any
volunteer with Internet access, but with an option for QSL labels to be
printed at a central point for handing in to the bureau. Direct cards
should be sent to FSDXA, PO Box 73, Church Stretton, SY6 6WF, UK. Bureau
cards go via the RSGB bureau. There is also a form on the Web page for
requesting bureau cards." Another topic in the bulletin deals with an
upcoming 3B9C video (with a D68C video added free to the purchase), as
well as the status of AO-40, EME, 6m and RTTY contacts, plus a few words
on their contest efforts and trophies. For complete details, go to the
Web page at: http://www.fsdxa.com/3b9c/bulletin-4.html

5V7, TOGO. The 5V7C team is now active as of late Friday. Activity should
last until March 13th. The complete list of pilot stations were announced
this past week. They a Bruno/F5AGB (for the Europe and French speaking
countries), Floyd/N5FG (NA - SA and Central), Mike/UA0MF (AS), Toshi/JA1ELY
(JA) and Lee/ZL2AL (VK). QSL via F5TVG: Franck Savoldi, P.O. Box 92,
94223 Charenton Cedex, France. For more information, visit their Web page
at: http://5v7c.free.fr/defaulteng.htm
Don't forget to read the band and mode plans and the forecast propagation
at: http://5v7c.free.fr/Infopropag.htm

9Q, DEM. REP. OF CONGO. After a few problems in the start, Gus, SM5DIC,
is now active as 9Q0AR until about March 20th. He was heard this past
week on 20/17/15/10 meters. Modes vary from CW, SSB, RTTY and PSK31. Gus's
QSL Manager Leif, SM5BFJ, told OPDX this week that Gus is active from the
Radio Club in Kinshasa. Leif would also like OPDX to remind everyone when
sending a QSL request to him, please include 2 USD or 1 IRC (this is
because of the high Swedish postage cost) for the return postage.

A5, BHUTAN (Also 9N). Jim Wise, W4PRO, leaves for Bhutan on March 19th.
He will be on the air around March 22nd or 23rd as A52PRO. Jim will operate
until April 3rd from Thimphu, Bhutan, and then will travel to Tibet where
he will not operate. However, he will be in Khatmandu, Nepal, from April
10-13th where he has asked for the 9N7PRO callsign.

BOOK REVIEW (by Tedd, KB8NW): Reading "THE COMPLETE DX'ER" (3rd Edition),
I would have to say that this is the "Complete Package" for a new DXer,
as well as for an older DXer (to polish up their DXing skills). Author Bob
Locher, W9KNI, has put together a text book diary (an Elmer in a book) on
how to achieve good DXing skills and what is needed to work DX. Individuals
who bought Bob's 1st and 2nd Editions (published 1983 and 1989) may want
to add this updated 3rd Edition. Bob was inspired to come out with a 3rd
Edition due to the major changes in DXing (InterNet, PacketCluster, etc..),
and his new found interest in QRP operations (after building an Elecraft
K2 QRP transceiver). The book deals with "How to Listen" (going through
the bands or listening to pile-ups), "What is Needed" (or not needed -- the
bare essentials), QSLing, and "What Equipment and Accessories are Needed"
to get the job done. These are just a few items in the book. Early in the
book, Bob brings out the importance of good listening skills. Probably
a skill many newer DXers do not have or older DXers lost with the age
of the DXClusters. This 223 page book is worth reading and have in a
DXer's library. The book lists for 19.95 USD (plus shipping). For more
reviews and details on purchasing the book, go to the Web page at:
http://idiompress.com/books-complete-dxer.html

C56, THE GAMBIA (Update to OPDX.658). Jan, PA9JJ, will be active as C56JJ
from Banjul, March 29th to April 5th. Remember that most of his activity
will be on 80/40 meters and the WARC bands SSB. However, he may be on
some other bands and do some CW. There will be an online log after his
return on his home page at: http://www.qsl.net/pa9jj

CT HISTORICAL COLLECTION (Help Needed). Carlos Nora, CT1END, reports that he
is involved in an organization in Portugal which is devoted to documenting
and preserving the history of Amateur Radio in Portugal from the early days
to the present. If you have Portuguese QSL cards prior to 1960, Portuguese
QSL cards from DXpeditions or Portugueses DX Magazines and other special
events, they would appreciate receiving them as a donation to their
collection, or as an alternative, send a digital image of QSL card. The
Web page of the "Historical Archive of the Portuguese Amateur Radio" can
be viewed at: http://ahrap.sytes.net
If you can help them, please respond by E-mail ) or
by mail to the address at:
Carlos Nora, CT1END, Praceta D. M=E9cia N=BA 15 - 2=BADto., Massama Norte,
2605-247 Belas, Portugal

D2, ANGOLA. Rod, EA7JX, informs OPDX that Joao/CT1BFL and Durval/CU3BW
will be working in Luanda, capital city of Angola, during the next 6
month and be active as D2U and D2DB, respectively. They are now using
a G5RV, but by the end of this month or the next April, they will have
a tribander on the air. CT1BFL will operate on all modes, including PSK,
RTTY and SSTV. CU3BW will operate on all modes, but not CW. QSL is via

V26R QSL STATUS. Mike, KA2AEV, announced this past week that as of March
5th, all the QSLs from the USA/VE for the 2003 and past V26B operations
have been answered and are in the mail. He is still working on the DX
requests. If you are in the USA or Canada and are awaiting a QSL from
V26B, and you do not receive it within the next 2-3 weeks (Depending
on the USPS!!!), please drop Mike another request with an SAE and return
postage for your request. Please be advised that QSLs are not required.
Please put your QSO info on a piece of paper. Mike states, "That will
work for us!" He also states, "Sorry for the Inconvience of past QSLing
practices. We seem to have our act together now."

QSL MANAGER Nenad, VE3EXY, reports that the QSLs for VK1AA/2, VK1AA/4
and VK9LX/9 are still not printed. DO NOT SEND A SECOND REQUEST. He
also mentions, "I am still receiving lots of requests with insufficient
funds. One U.S. dollar is not enough for an overseas letter from Canada,
especially when you send several QSL cards. All those requests are
processed IMMEDIATELY, but will be sent via the BUREAU."

NOT THE QSL MANAGER. Jim, WB4UBD, is NOT the QSL Manager for VK0IR.
He was only assisting W4FRU, the QSL Manager at that time. He has no
logs and no cards. The QSL Manager for the 1997 VK0IR operation is N2OO.

Rusty, W6OAT, announced this past week that he will be handling the
QSLs for Jerry, YI9MD. Cards are "OK" either direct (Rusty Epps W6OAT,
651 Handley Trail, Redwood City, CA 94062, USA) or via the bureau.
Wayne, W4MPY, is donating the cards for Jerry (K6MD at home), and
they are still working with Jerry to get the exact wording he wants
printed on them. Rusty states that it will be a few weeks before he
actually receives any QSLs from Wayne, so please be patient with them
as they may be a bit slow in the beginning.

Dave, W2GI, reports that the YI9ZF logs have been updated through
February 27th at: http://dx.qsl.net/logs/

QSL MANAGER ZS6EZ. Excerpts from an E-mail received from Chris Burger,
ZS6EZ, states that his QSLing policy is published at:
http://zs6ez.za.org/qsl-pol.htm
Chris states, "I pre-emptively QSL every QSO through the bureau, and
respond to all direct requests received..... I am not in a position
to collect registered mail from the post office, which would involve
a two-hour drive in office hours. There is not a significant mail loss
problem, so registered mail is completely unnecessary.... Although,
I am now somewhat behind with QSLing after a computer theft, I routinely
respond to all requests. I always have, and I always will. The ZD9IR
logs are also in the Logbook of the World, allowing anyone to claim
DXCC credit as required."

SPECIAL EVENT. Lee/K1NT and Marvin/AG5I will be operating special event
stations K5O and K5K mobile during Oklahoma's QSO Party, "Just for the fun
of it", March 13th and 14th. A special QSL card will be available for

will start the second Sunday of April (April 11th) between 1800z to 0200z
(Monday). The 8 hour party will be CW only. Station KP4ES will be on the
air as the "Official Party Station: from the Puerto Rico Amateur Radio

frequency restrictions. Any amateur radio frequency may be used for a
valid contact (Suggested frequencies: 30khz above the CW lower sub-band
limit). For more complete details, please visit the following Web page
at: http:/www.prarl.org/skeyparty2004.htm

VP2M, MONTSERRAT. Keith, VP2MEG, wrote to OPDX last week wondering why
"VP2M" was not listed in the "DXCC COUNTRY/ENTITY REPORT" for the week of
February 22-29th, stating "VP2M" is active. Believe it or not, there were
NO cluster reports for "VP2M" for that week. Information is taken from
the world-wide AB5K AR TelNet Clusters Network. Goes to show NOT all
stations are reported. Keith, VP2MEG, did mention to OPDX that a new
batch of hams (locals) are operating from the island, and they are training
some more. Come guys/gals, let's see some VP2M QSNs reported (ed. As this
was being written - still NO cluster QSNs for VP2M!!).

XE, MEXICO. Bela, N8SHZ, was expected to leave for Mexico on the 5th of
March to return about the 28th of April. Look for him to probably sign

is guaranteed direct with a SASE for US and 1 Green Stamp for others.

XF4, REVILLA GIGEDO. The XF4IH operation from Socorro Island is now active

YA, AFGHANISTAN. Masa, JG1OWV, informs OPDX that Afghanistan hams are now
planning to operate club station YA0J for the upcoming CQ WPX SSB Contest
(March 27-28th). Their activity will be limited, and they will try to be on
as much as possible within their work schedules. This will be the first
Multi-Operator entry from that country.

YV4, VENEZUELA. Dario, YV4GMG, in Santa Cruz, informs OPDX that he is
active on 20/15/10 meters. Also, active from the same station is Hector/
