The U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service has notified the team that February  12-26,
2009, will be the dates allocated for the  radio operation.  These dates are
coordinated  with  other USFWS research  activities scheduled on other parts
of  Desecheo Island as well  as  scheduling USFWS security personnel for the
Fifteen operators will be allowed on the island at any given time.  A  total
of 6-8 stations will be operational, including 160-6 meters.
A reconnaissance trip to Desecheo is  scheduled  for  Friday,  December  19.
Three  team members, USFWS personnel and an UXO (unexploded ordnance) expert
will sweep and clear the assigned area of UXO  and other hazards. There will
be no radio operations.
The 15-man team will assemble in  Puerto  Rico  on  February  8,  2009,  for
mandatory UXO training. The next  three  days  will  include team operations
training, and last minute  preparation  and  staging  of the several tons of
equipment  for  transport.  On  February 12th, landing will commence and two
stations will  be immediately activated. Likewise, stations will continue to
operate  until  the final moments before departure on February 26th.
Halfway through the operation, on February 19th, approximately half  of  the
operating team will be replaced with fresh operators for the  final week.
The team has been diligently planning  antennas  and  propagation  paths  to
take advantage of  every  possible  band opening  to Asia, where Desecheo is
#2  on the Most Wanted List and to Europe, where it is #3 on the Most Wanted
Contributions are being solicited. To assist the team  and  for  the  latest

A5100A ---> The team went QRT at 16 UTC on  24  November  after  5805  QSOs.
This is a slightly better result than in 2004,  and  it  has  been  achieved
under worse propagation conditions and with one station only. [TNX F5NQL]

ARRL 160 METER CONTEST ---> Object of the contest is for amateurs  worldwide
to work W/VE amateurs on 160 metres CW only (complete  rules can be found at
http://www.arrl.org/contests/rules/2008/160-meters.html). This year's  event
will run from 22.00 UTC on 5 December through 16.00 UTC on the 7th.  Do  not
forget to give a look at the  Announced  Operations  listing  maintained  by
Bill, NG3K at http://www.ng3k.com/Misc/arrl160_2008.html

CQ RTTY CONTEST DIRECTOR ---> Ed Muns, W0YK has been named  Director  of  CQ
magazine's RTTY contests (the CQ WW RTTY WPX Contest each February  and  the
CQ WW RTTY DX Contest every September). He  succeeds  Glenn  Vinson,  W6OTC,
who has been CQ's RTTY Contest Director since 2000.  Glenn's  original  plan
had been to  transfer  responsibility  for  the  CQ  RTTY  contests  to  his
co-director for the past several years, Paolo Cortese, I2UIY. Ed stepped  in
to fill the void that was created by Paolo's unexpected passing  in  October

PG6G ---> Peter/PA8A, Fred/PA8F and Rob/PA3GVI were active as PG6G on  27-28
November. Once again they used the big  array  formerly  used  to  broadcast
Radio Netherlands. This is a curtain  antenna  with  eight  stacked  dipoles
between two 400-foot towers. A video from their last visit can be  found  at
http://uk.youtube.com/watch?v=3vE1zk60v3E [TNX PA3GVI]

ROCKALL  2009:  CALL  FOR  OPERATORS  --->  Many  thanks  to    Col,  MM0NDX
(http://dx-hamspirit.com) for submitting the following Press Release  issued
by    Andy    Strangeway    aka    "Island       Man"    on    25   November
"Working in tandem with my friend Col, MM0NDX I  am  acutely  aware  of  the
interest shown in EU-189. With this in mind I would  like  to  invite  radio
hams, be they individuals or clubs, to contact me with  their  proposals  to
be part of this exciting expedition. I require the following information  to
be included in the proposal.
* The maximum and minimum number of berths that would be required.
* A CV of previous radio activations of those that would be involved.
* Any information of additional skills that would strengthen  the  depth  of
the expedition, for example any crewing of yacht/boat, tender experience  or
climbing ability.
The countries who have so far shown the greatest interest in the  expedition
are Belguim, France, Japan, Norway, UK and USA. I would especially  like  to
hear from Japanese radio hams as  not  one  operator  from  Japan  has  ever
contacted Rockall. EU-189 is the most wanted IOTA in Japan.
Once the transport has been secured, the team for  the  expedition  will  be
selected and dates announced. A website can  be  built  especially  for  the
radio hams and a QSL manager is already  secured  (M0URX,  ed.)  should  you
require these extras.
For  all  proposals  in  the  first  instance,   please    contact  Andy  at
info@island-man within the next seven days".

QSL 9A0IARU ---> This special event station was  active  during  the  recent
IARU Region 1 Conference in Cavtat (15-21 November). More  than  4,200  QSOs
were made and all of them will be confirmed automatcially  via  the  bureau.

QSL  VK9DWX  --->  In  their   latest    press    release    (23   November,
http://www.vk9dwx.de) the team stated that they have already  received  over
1800 direct QSLs and over  3500  online  requests  through  the  OQRS.  They
expect to get the QSL cards from the printer before Christmas  and  to  mail
the first direct cards at the turn of the year.  The  first  batch  of  QSOs
"for our sponsors" has been uploaded to LoTW. All the  remaining  QSOs  will
be uploaded in spring 2009.

QSL ZS2DL ---> Buzz, NI5DX, is now the QSL manager for Donovan, ZS2DL.  Buzz
already has the logs and will be able to answer any requests  for  cards  as
soon as a supply  of  blank  cards  (already  on  their  way)  arrives  from
Donovan. [TNX K1XN]
