3B7, ST. BRANDON
The 3B7C team is now active from Isle du Sud, St. Brandon (AF-015). It seems the team arrived on the island on September 5th, apparently the boat trip wasn't very pleasant due to high seas, but activity did not start until around 2000z, September 7th. Here are the following suggested frequencies:

CW - 1822, 3502, 7002, 10102, 14022, 18072, 21022, 24892 and 28022
SSB - 1842, 3795, 7052, 14145, 18145, 21295, 24945 and 28495
RTTY - 3570, 7035, 10137, 14085, 18100, 21085, 24920 and 28075

The 3B7C team plans to have 12 stations on the air.

DXCC NEWS
ARRL Outgoing QSL Service Changes (Bill Moore, NC1L): "Effective September 6th, 2007, the ARRL Outgoing QSL Service will no longer accept QSL cards for shipment to HH (Haiti) and 9L (Sierra Leone)."

The ARRL Incoming QSL Service and 1X1 Callsigns (Bill Moore, NC1L): "When sending cards to confirm 1X1 callsigns, the ARRL QSL Service requests you note somewhere on the card the person who 'requesitioned' the callsign. This will expedite routing to the proper station and may result in quicker processing of cards handled through the ARRL US Incoming Bureaus. To locate the person responsible for a 1X1 callsign, please visit this site:

http://www.ncvec.org/1x1.php
Enter the 1X1 callsign. When the screen appears, select the 1X1 callsign based on the event you worked. Click 'Details' on the right-side of the page to determine the person responsible for the operation.
'See Requesitioned by'
Remember, callsigns may be issued more than once, so following the above procedure will allow the QSL Service to direct it to the proper person. Direct any questions to qsl@arrl.org"

He also plans to operate digital modes (PSK31, RTTY) with a Microham interface. Alain also brought with him a beam antenna, a KT-34 upgraded with the latest kit, but he needs more things arranged to get it erected (He states, "I'm not sure the garden is large enough".).

OH0Z PIRATE ALERT
Juha, OH9MM, sent out the following press release:

"Since 27 June 2007 there has been a lot of pirate activity. Most of the pirate activity has been on 10MHZ cw. Primetime for pirate has been so far around 17Z.

Luckily the pirate has been very rude (operating quite long periods). It has been relatively easy to trace. Most of the signals have been sent from the same area. However, we need some more data to contact the telecommuni- cation authorities. Only groups of voluntary people across Europe have identified the antenna directions so far. Even at this point OH0Z team would like to thank them for good co-operation! In the future: if the pirate keeps on going, please also inform the antenna direction in the spot. Just a reminder, our station is located in square locator JP90

We have also built an automatic system to monitor the use of OH0Z call. Practically we are receiving OH0Z spots directly to our mobile phones. We can also turn this system off, please no kidding with cluster spots!

Untill further information OH0Z is now totally QRT on 10MHZ. All the future activations on 10MHZ can now be claimed as pirate activations.

OH0Z has been active on 10MHZ only two times this year:
26 27. May 2007 operated by OH3BHL
24 26. Jun 2007 operated by OH9MM


Before sending any qsl please check log search at our page www.oh0z.net. It contains all 10mhz contacts. We were on the island last weekend preparing new antennas for the upcoming contest season (1-2 September). Few qsos were made on 80m, 20m and 17m (log seach will be updated soon). No activity on 10Mhz

Normally we are active during contests. Some warm up qsos before and after the tests. Holiday style operations may occur, but they are very rare! In normal situations we are not active during the week. We are also trying to publish our activities in advance in major bulletins as much as possible!

Please notice that we are also renting the OH0Z place with certain terms. There is no need to operate with our call sign in your home.

On behalf of RadioSporting Team (OH0Z).... Juha Valimaki, OH9MM"

ADDED NOTE: OH0Z will be on for both modes of the SAC Scandinavian Contest, September 15-16th (CW) and September 22-23rd (SSB), 80-10M. OH1JT will be the operator, SOAB in CW, and OH1RX + OH9MM (maybe also others) M/S in SSB. QSL via W0MM. Special prefix may also be used.

P29, PAPUA NEW GUINEA (New IOTAs)
Operators Luis/CT1AGF, Derek/G3KHZ, Steve/G4EDG and Hans/SM6CVX together with two non-ham friends will make the journey by chartered boat from Buka Island on September 22nd to Nukumanu Island (OC-284p). They should be active as P29VCX from Nukumanu for about 6 days beginning September 23rd. The plan is then to sail to Takuu Island (OC-283p) and operate using the callsign P29NI from there for 6 days starting about September 30th. Finally, if time permits, they will sail to Kilinalau Island (OC-256, aka Tulun Islands) and operate from there for a few days, possibly as P29VLR, between October 6-9th before returning to Buka. The dates may vary a little depending on the local weather. They expect to operate on all bands, including 160 and 80 meters, with possibly 3-4 stations, two amplifiers, verticals and a multiband dipole. Their plan is to run 4 stations simultaneously from 2 sites on each island. This should allow simultaneous operation from two stations on the same band using different modes. Two stations will use 500w linears and two stations will use 100w. QSL P29NI via G3KHZ. QSL P29VCX and the Kilinalau Island operation via SM6CVX. The group is looking for support from the ham community. More details and updates are available on their Web page at:
