50 MHz Beacon News, GB3SIX, SR9FHA.
GB3SIX has now been cleared to operate from a new site at IO73sg. The original QRG of 50.020 MHz has
been retained. My thanks to the group on Anglesey for their dedication in returning this much-missed beacon
to service!
Information received today via G3USF is that a new beacon - SR9FHA - is now operating on 50.026 MHz
running 4 W to a groundplane antenna. (grid KN09)

NEW PREFIXES (PA) ---> As of 4 August the Dutch authority has expanded
the possibilities for the callsign assignment to amateur radio operators
in The Netherlands. For class A (CEPT class I) licensees the follwing
prefix blocks are available: PA, PB, PC, PF and PG, followed by a number
in the range 0-5 or 7-9 (6 remains reserved for special event stations
in all prefix blocks, PA0 only available to former PA0 callsign
holders) + a 1-3 letter suffix. Class C (CEPT class II) licensees may
use PE and PH, Class D (Novice) may use PD. An overview, including
allocations for PI prefixes and a listing of
new/former calls, can     be found    at http://www.pg7v.net/english/
BEACON ---> VE1/W1BKR/B (http://www.henryisland.com) is back on the air.
It is battery/solar panel powered and it is intended to run continuosly
through the year. Signal reports are most welcome.

Svalbard and Jan Mayen beacons. Update.
Lasse, SM0KAK, has investigated the reports of the three JW beacons the last years and found that JW7SIX
has been reported only a few times compared to the years before and to the other two JW beacons. There is a
problem at JW7SIX/b, temporarely QRT. (The beacon keeper LA0BY is trying to get the problem fixed soon).
Please be careful when listening to and reporting the three beacons up there. The callsigns are similar and the
frequencies not far away from each other.
JW5SIX, KQ26, 50.045.7 MHz.

3Y0/P, PETER I ISLAND. Bob Allphin/K4UEE and Ralph Fedor/K0IR are pleased to announce
they have organized a DXpedition to Peter I Island (3Y0/P). The Dxpedition is scheduled
to occur during the upcoming Austral summer 2004. Their 15 person team is scheduled to
depart from Ushuaia, Argentina, on January 3rd, 2004, and arrive at Peter I Island on
approximately January 9th (+/- weather). They will build the camp infrastructure and
install all antennas before going QRV. This will be a high power DXpedition with an
international team of experienced operators and multiple stations on all HF bands
covering SSB, CW, and RTTY modes. The team hopes for a 3-week stay on Peter I. Weather,
of course, may dictate otherwise. Additional details including QSL information, website
and the team roster will be forthcoming. Several operator positions are available. Also,
there are opportunities for ham or non-ham travelers to visit Peter I, the Antarctic
continent, and the South Shetland Islands, returning around January 19th to Ushuaia,
Argentina. For more information, contact Bob, K4UEE at:

20 – 29 Oktober   ZK1, SOUTH COOK ISLANDS. Dave/W6AQ and Don/K6IPV are going
ZK1               on the road again. Don states, “This time, we‟ll stay away
                  from the CW, which neither of us has a great familiarity
                  with, and will travel to the South Cook Islands for the CQ
                  WW SSB Contest the end of October.” Don also states,
                  “Licenses have been applied for and a decision is about to
                  be made as to just which delightful place we will stay, but
                  we know it will be next door to Victor, ZK1CG/ZK1USA, who
                  has been a tremendous help in coordinating
                  our trip and promises to help whenever he can. We believe that help will probably be in
                  the form of constructive criticism and the supply of tools and duct tape when
                  necessary. We plan to arrive on Rarotonga the evening, local
                  time, of October 20th and will be leaving on October 29th. We
                  anticipate antennas for all HF bands, 160 through 10 meters,
                  and will attempt to get in a little bit of CW along with a
                  lot of SSB. We understand that South Cooks is the most
                  wanted country, in Europe, on RTTY, so, Don will be
                  attempting to patch together some gear to be able to operate
                  the other digital modes while Dave will be checking out the
                  local dining and wine establishments. We have our wives
                  along, this time, so will not, obviously, „have at least one
                  transmitter on the air 24 hours a day‟. We‟ll do as much as
                  we can.”               QSL Manager is to be named later and
                  callsigns will be announced as soon as granted.

25 – 26 Oktober   5H, TANZANIA (Help Needed). Paul/K1XM (5H1F) and Charlotte/KQ1F will be active
5H, Tanzania      and will try to have many radio club students at Dar es Salaam Institute of Technology
                  (DIT) join them in this year's CQWW SSB Contest as 5I3A. They will be a Multi-Multi
                  entry. Charlotte and Paul will arrive a few days early, set up stations, and start educating
                  students as they have time. Paul figures they will need to teach a bit of geography,
                  propagation, operating, contest rules, how to use the contesting software, strategy, pile-up
                  handling, phonetics, etc.... They will have three radios with them. They will bring extra
                  headphones and splitters, so they can operate with the students listening and then swap off
                  and have a student operate while they listen. However, Paul is looking for other "stuff"
                  and some ideas. They don't have enough headsets. Does anyone have a Heil headset
                  they are interested in selling? This is a good opportunity to buy a new Proset + and unload
                  your old set. They could also use a stand-alone voice keyer or two. He is also in need of
                  some ideas for antennas. The existing log periodic is a good start, but he needs enough for
                  six bands and three radios. Any aluminum must fit in a 4' golf club carrying case. He
                  thinksthey will be using the top of a building. Rotators are probably too heavy. If
                  someone is interested in joining this operation, that is a possibility. The safari
                  opportunities in Tanzania are incredible. Check out the following Web page to see some
                  of the photos Paul and Charlotte took during their 2001 operation. They plan to leave the
                  antennas and enough accessories that the TS-140S can be used as a contest station. Paul
                  states, "There are a group of college students who were enthusiastic enough that they got
                  licenses. They are young and learn fast. If our operation is successful we hope that the
                  DIT club will continue to operate in contests and the members will be comfortable getting
                  on the air." If you can help Paul out with accessories/antennas, send an E-mail to:

PJ7-FS            Saint Martin, PJ7/FS.
                  Folks, planning on a repeat trip to PJ7/FS on November 8-15 and would
*                 very much appreciate your looking back over your logs & any comments
                  regarding TEP (or F2) propagation to the north-east Caribbean around
                  that time in November. If promising, I will bring my "new" Yaesu FT-650
                  and 1/4 wave mobile antenna. Worked quite a few stations from there last
                  year on 10m mobile, including some of the 6m gang (HB9QQ), but
                  unfortunately only had my HF transceiver at the time. Found a great hill
                  spot overlooking the Atlantic Ocean with a clear take-off to Europe from
                  the mobile that somewhat equalizes not having a beam.

Februar   Eritrea, E3.
E3        A DXpedition team of five British operators will be traveling to Eritrea in mid-February
*         2004. They will be active on all bands 160m-6m with three high-power stations.
          Operations will take place from the Nyala Hotel in Asmara, the location of several
          previous successful DXpeditions. The group will have Force 12 beam aerials for HF, a 2-
          element yagi for 30m and dipoles for 40-160 meters. All of the antennas will be well over
          100 feet (32m) above ground level. For 6 meters they will use a 5-element yagi. The
          operating team is all seasoned DXpedition and Contest operators who have plenty of
          experience in handling pile-ups. They are: G3AB, Andy Chadwick; G3VMW, Steve
          Wilson; G3XAQ, Alan Ibbetson; GM3YTS, Rob Ferguson; and G4EDG, Steve Taylor.
          The DXpedition will cover two complete weekends and one station will enter the ARRL
          CW DX Contest. G3AB and G3VMW will stay on in Asmara for another 7-10 days with
          two high-power stations and 6 meters. Operation will be on all modes CW, SSB and
          RTTY/PSK-31 on or around the following frequencies:

          CW - 1828, 3507, 7007, 10107, 14027, 18077, 21027, 24897, 28027 and 50107
          SSB - 3790, 7070, 14195, 18145, 21195, 24945, 28495 and 50150
          Data - 3570, 7037, 10137, 14070, 18097, 21077, 24917 and 28107

          The group's callsign will be given every few QSOs and they will be
          listening up at all times. Their frequency split will never extend
          beyond 15 kHz and typically will be 1-5 kHz, especially on CW. The Pilot
          Station for the expedition will be G3LZQ, John Dunnington, and he will
          pass on to the group any comments or suggestions that you might wish to
          make. Please email John during the expedition at: g3lzq@john-
          dunnington.freeserve.co.uk or pass your comments direct to him on the
          air

          The team will have a web site with an on-line log to be updated daily together with full
          details of the DXpedition crew plus their operating location. The URL of the web site will
          be announced later on, once confirmation of the E3 callsign has taken place. There will
          also be a guestbook on the web site and the Pilot will check daily for comments, which he
          will pass on to the guys during daily skeds. The aim is to meet the huge demand out there
          for multi-band QSOs with Eritrea and they will pay special attention to the harder
          propagation paths such as the USA west coast. Individual donations are welcome to help
          fund the cost of shipping gear to Eritrea and the very high cost of licenses ($500 USD per
          operator) and there will be a Paypal donation facility on the Web site. QSL Manager for
          this operation will be Andy Chadwick, G3AB, 5 Thorpe Chase, Ripon, North Yorkshire,
          England HG4 1UA. You can email Andy at andy@g3ab.net .

          If confirmation of the callsign with the Eritrean PTT, the group hopes to have QSL cards
          printed before leaving for Eritrea to reduce any delays in getting direct cards out to the
          "Deserving". An email QSL Request facility will be available on the Web page for you to
          request cards via the Bureau. For direct QSL requests please include sufficient return
          postage - either IRCs or US dollars. Sorry, they will not support the E-QSL system, but
          will be happy to QSL via the Bureau. (SMIRK)
Marts eller         In March or April 2004 an international team of about 15
April               well known operators, including most of the TI9M group,
2004                will be active as T33C from Banaba (OC-018) for a period of
*                   about 12 days. The QSL manager will be announced at a
                    later date. The main emphasis of this DXpedition will
                    be to work Europe on all bands, especially on the low-
                    bands. The team will use 5 stations around the clock. When
                    the DX window to Europe is not open, the team will focus
                    on all other areas of the world. Operations will take
                    place on 160-6 metres CW, SSB, RTTY, PSK and some SSTV with
                    linear amplifiers available, when needed. This will be a
                    completely self supporting DXpedition, since little of the
                    infrastructure of Banaba is left. All food, water,
                    medical support, radios, antennas and electrical power
                    equipment must be brought in by boat. The web site for the
                    DXpedition is at http://www.dx-pedition.de/banaba 2004, and
                    it will be updated as frequently as things progress.
4 – 16 april 2004   T33, BANABA ISLAND (Update). An international team of 20 operators will
T33                 be active as T33C during the first two weeks of April 2004 (April 4-16th).
                    They will have 6 HF stations on the air (3 CW and 3 SSB), plus a separate
                    6 meter/AO-40 and separate HF digital mode station. Activity will be on
                    160-6 meters, satellite, CW, SSB, RTTY, PSK and some SSTV. They have
                    arranged a suitable vessel named "Te Toobe" to take the equipment and
                    them safely to and from Banaba Island (a 2 day trip from Tarawa, Kiribati).
                    The T33C license and landing permission has been granted. Operators are:
                    Frank/DL4KQ, Greg/DF2IC, Bernd/DL5OAB, Rob/PA5ET, Ronald/PA3EWP,
