SAN FELIX, CE0X (Update/DXpedition 2017).

Posted by Admin

The following was posted on on August 29th:
An update by CE5WQO -- After my experience in CE0Z Juan Fernandez Isl 2014 as CE0Z/CE5WQO I decided to make all efforts to put another Chilean most wanted ON AIR, so San Félix Isl is on my mind. A few months ago I announced information of my next activity to CE0X San Félix Isl.

The original idea was a small team of three operators, but after receive many e-mails from different stations around the world proposing the idea of forming a large Team.

I have been in contact with some US stations to make this possible. After hard work in The Chilean Ministry of Telecommunication and The Navy, authorizations and permissions are granted – for now just need to take care of the logistical details to put this entity on air. Then came a team of world-renowned operators, with whom I worked with. Today, the relations with the team are broken, for a lack of trust, and the lack of support in logistics since most of the work I’ve done myself, and is easy to receive news at the other side of the desk, while one who makes efforts and spends money for this project it is one, guess who... I decided to announce that the team will be only for three operators: Dima/RA9USU on CW, other operator for Digital/CW, and me on SSB. We will cover from 160 – 6 meters in SSB CW RTTY.

I need to confirm that this entity will be on air in 2017, with or without a large team, and the exact date is still not defined. My efforts will be for the chance that I have to put this entity on air, to bring a new entity to many Hams in the world, 14 years have passed since the last dxpedition, and will pass another 14 years, because this opportunity must not be wasted, it is very difficult to get these permits especially for foreigners. The second press release will include information with more details. Thanks to all the friends that has send support and friendship to make this project happen..... Felipe Gutiérrez CE5WQO

WG2XPN 70 MHz Beacon update

Posted by Admin

Brian WA1ZMS, licensee of the 3 kW ERP 70.005 MHz WG2XPN beacon, reports the license has been renewed until May 1, 2017 

The Experimental License for WG2XPN with one-way only beacon operations on 70.005 MHz with 3 kW ERPd from here in the US (QTH: FM07fm) has been renewed until May 1, 2017.

As such, it gives the only 4m North American beacon a chance to be heard via TA in the Europe for another 2 years. That's a good thing in my mind. Thanks again goes to the FCC & the Society of Broadcast Engineers here in the US for their continued support; after all this portion of spectrum is still reserved for TV service only and no US 4m ham band appears possible in the future. 

I am always hoping for a repeat of the 7000+km Eskip DX reports that took place in 2013. To all EU stations on 4m: Remember to point your beams West during Eskip season and give a long listen on 70.005MHz. You might just hear something!

Cedric Rourke, CT3FT (GI3IVJ), - Silent Key

Posted by Admin

CT3FT (GI3IVJ), Cedric J. Rourke, has died. GI4OCK, Stewart, says he was "A lovely man, well into his 80s, but was still seeking out the two or three remaining entities he needed. He maintained regular skeds with his friends back home in GI." Cedric began SWLing as a schoolboy in 1949 in Be fast, Ireland. He studied for the ham test and passed in 1952. His father got the GI3JIM call at about the same time and they set up a station together. Cedric became a high school physics teacher in 1955. With several QTH moves, he ended up with a rural hilltop QTH in County Down, with an 80-foot tower and 5-band quad. Then working DX became easy. With early retirement, he moved to Madeira and started DXing all over again with his CT3FT call and CS3T during contests. He liked CW in the mornings on 160, 80, 40 and 30, especially at dawn, then SSB later in the day on higher HF bands.
