3D2CR CONWAY REEF DXPEDITION NEWS (Rebel DX Group Update). The 3D2CR
Rebel DX Group left for Conway Reef on May 29th, and are now active as
of June 1st. It was also reported on May 25th, that this is "first of 4
destinations in the Pacific." Their catamaran is anchored 500m offshore
and a video was posted on YouTube:
Activity has been on 40/30/20/17 meters using CW, SSB and FT8.
Wayne, N0UN, posted the following on June 1st, the Rebel DX Group Web
page (https://www.rebeldxgroup.com/): 3D2CR Conway Reef On The Air! --
The Rebels have broken through the weather jinx that’s been following
us around for months and months – 3D2CR Conway Reef is on the air!
We made it half way there before the Rebel catamaran and crew got turned
around by the weather last week, but we’re persistent (to say the least)
and that persistence has paid off.
If you wish, send your recordings to (firstname.lastname@example.org) and before
the first stop of our Pacific DXpedition is over we’ll post them on this
site for all to hear.
QSL info and the ClubLog online log links are posted here:
See you in the pileups!
It is also recommended to watch both the 3D2CR (Conway Reef) and T33T
(Banaba Island) on the QRZ.com Web pages and the Rebel DX Groups FaceBook
page (https://www.facebook.com/rebeldxgroup/) for updates as well as the
6O, SOMALIA (Update). Ali, EP3CQ, is once again active as 6O1OO starting
sometime mid-June until the end of July. Activity will be limited to his
spare time because he works for the UN Department of Safety and Security
(UNDSS) in Mogadishu. Operations will be on 80/40/30/20/17/15/10 meters
(mostly on 40/20meters FT8) using SSB and FT8. Also, effective as of
February 11, 2019, the callsign, 6O1OO, has been accepted for DXCC
credit. QSL direct to: Ali Solhjoo, Schnackenburgstr. 3, Berlin 12159,
Germany. QSL cards will be replied to on a bi-monthly basis. IRC's are
not accepted. See QRZ.com for more info and picture of his station.

CQ NEWS (Press Release, dated May 29th -- Brian Bird, NX0X, Named CQ
USA-Counties Award Custodian). Brian Bird, NX0X, of Duluth, Minnesota,
has been named the new Custodian for CQ magazine's USA-Counties Award
(USA-CA), effective June 1, 2019, CQ Editor Rich Moseson, W2VU, announced
today. Brian succeeds Ted Melinosky, K1BV, who served as USA-CA Custodian
and CQ Awards Editor for 21 years. Several updates in the USA-CA award
rules will take effect at the same time.
Brian has been a county hunter since the 1990s and earned the USA-CA
All Counties Award in 2004, followed a year later by his wife, Shari,
KB0MHH. The two of them hosted the national county-hunters' convention
in 2011. Brian is an airline pilot who splits his time each month between
flying and working in his airline's training center.
"I am looking forward to working with Brian as he assumes the leader-
ship of one of the most challenging award programs in all of amateur
radio," noted CQ Editor Rich Moseson, W2VU. "With 3077 counties in the
United States, working 'the whole ball of wax' takes a great deal of
dedication and perseverance. Administering the award takes a special
commitment, as well. Brian will be only the sixth USA-CA Custodian in
the award's 58-year history."
"I am very honored to being selected as your new USA-CA award custodian,"
noted NX0X. "I'm looking forward to carrying on with the great history
of the awards program and any challenges ahead. Part of being the USA-CA
award custodian is to not only handle the issuing of awards that have
been earned in a timely manner, but giving you the public recognition
so rightly deserved for earning such a prestigious award. I can only
hope that I serve you all with the same great service of my predecessors.
Hoping that many new counties for you are just up the band."
The rules updates primarily reflect the realities of living in the
21st century, such as replacing International Reply Coupons as a payment
method with PayPal; and permitting (encouraging) applications to be sub-
mitted by e-mail rather than only on paper. Also, due to significant
increases in the cost of international postage, it is necessary for us
to add a DX postage surcharge for mailing certificates to addresses out-
side the United States. The complete updated rules appear in CQ's June
2019 Awards column and will be posted as soon as possible after June 1st
on the CQ website at .
As of June 1, any correspondence relating to the CQ USA-CA program
should be directed to: Brian Bird, NX0X, 4567 Caribou Lake Road, Duluth,
MN 55811-9607, USA; or via e-mail to .

E6ET QSL DESK (Friedrichshafen HamFest 2019). Alex, 5B4ALX, reports
that he will be available to confirm the QSOs made by Niue personally
on Sunday, June 23rd, at the EUDXF stand. He will have a limited amount
of QSLs with him, however, useful to satisfy the requests. He adds,
"Unfortunately, I will not be able to sample the labels on the spot,
but I will have to write every QSL for each QSO that will be verified
together by the log. It will also be a good opportunity to join our
Foundation [European DX Foundation (www.eudxf.de) by paying, for those
interested, a small annual contribution."
