Conway Reef (OC-112) as 3D2CR sometime during 2018. No other details

3D6/3DA0, KINGDOM OF ESWATINI (New Country Name). King Mswati III of
Swaziland announced on Wednesday, April 18th, that he was renaming the
country "the Kingdom of eSwatini". The monarch announced the change in
a stadium during a celebrations for the country's 50th anniversary of
Swazi independence and the king's 50th birthday. The new name, eSwatini,
means "land of the Swazis". The new name does not change the DXCC status
of this entity. For more details, see the following URLs:
3Y0Z BOUVET ISLAND DXPEDITION NEWS (Update/dated April 26th). To the DX
Community..... There have been several important milestones reached and
decisions made in the last few weeks.
We have received a partial reimbursement on our payments made to DAP,
our transportation contractor. In our view, this it is a fair settlement
Our vessel, Betanzos is now back in Punta Arenas and we believe the
container with our personal gear and equipment are intact. We will be
arranging to transport the container back to the US, arriving in a few
It has become apparent that the chance of finding a suitable and afford-
able vessel for the 2018-19 Austral season is becoming less and less likely.
It appears that the very earliest that we could mount a second attempt to
activate Bouvet would be the 2019-20 season or possibly beyond.
Thus, we have made the decision to offer a pro-rata return of the
remaining 3Y0Z DXpedition funds in our account. This will occur only
after the container has arrived here and we have paid all our bills.
Only then, will we know the net balance to be distributed. As you may
have concluded, this is going to be an enormous task with 137 DX Clubs
and Foundations and 3700 individual DXers. The process will take some time.
We ask that you be patient as we complete this.
You will have the choice of a pro-rata return of your contribution, or
you may designate a foundation or club to receive your contribution. Any
“unclaimed” refunds will be proportionally distributed to the major con-
tributing foundations. Later this year, we will explain the way to claim
After the return of the funds is completed, we will close the accounting
books and the bank account of 3Y0Z. This is always our procedure as each
DXpedition must stand on its own. We believe this is the proper way to
wrap up the DXpedition.
We all are unhappy and extremely disappointed that the project was not
completed due to a mechanical failure on our vessel. This left the Captain
no choice but to abort the mission for safety reasons.
Please accept our team’s heartfelt thanks for your outstanding support
of this project.

KH1/KH7Z BAKER ISLAND DXPEDITION (Press Release, date April 27th).
Following a successful Visalia DX Convention, the KH1/KH7Z team met in
Cupertino this week to assemble the stations and network in preparation
of landing on Baker in 2 months. The DXpedition is now in the final
planning stages and this step was the last before packing and shipping
our gear to Fiji.
Stations -- DXpedition sponsors Elecraft and DX Engineering provided
the required gear. There will be 8 stations on Baker Island consisting
of 8 Elecraft K3S transceivers -- 7 powered by KPA500s; the 8th low band
station powered by a KPA1500 amp. This is the first expedition to use a
KPA1500 and the team and Elecraft are looking forward to seeing this
exciting new amplifier in action.
There will be 3 separate tents for CW, SSB, and Digital stations.
Co-leaders K6TD and N1DG, and AA7A, K6GFJ, K6MM, ND2T and N6MZ assembled
the stations, activated the BGAN satellite network, interfaced the NUC
computers & monitors, and installed N1MM+ in a complete on-island simu-
lation (including generator power). We also successfully simulated making
QSOs and uploading sample logs to ClubLog via the BGAN.
The network was designed by our IT team led by AA7A and N6MZ and consists
of rapidly deployed transit boxes containing the switches power hubs and
POE repeaters. Upon reaching the island the team will deploy these cases
and run out cables from the central CW tent to SSB and Digital tents. All
N1MM+ computers will be networked to our center administrative PC allowing
2 uploads daily via satellite to ClubLog to minimize duplicate contacts.
Antennas -- Although limited to 43 feet, our 80 and 160 meter antennas
are newly designed AA7JV “fat” verticals, which will sit just inside the
high tide mark. The SteppiR verticals for 75 through 10 meters will also
be mounted just inside of the high tide mark while four 2-element vertical
arrays will be mounted away from the water for 15, 17 and 20 meters. In
this way, we can maintain a 24-hour presence on 20 meters to maximize the
number of unique callsigns and enable the most ATNO contacts. We also
intend to install a multi-vertical array for 6 meters at the digital radios.
Testing the SteppIRs and our own design of vertical arrays is all that
remains before cleaning and sterilizing our gear to meet the FWS Biological
Protocols and sending the gear to our freight forwarder.
Please visit <http://www.baker2018.net/pages/pretrip.html> to see more
pictures relating to our testing activity this week.
As with any DXpedition to the really rare ones, this will be another
large budget operation. The operator team will contribute over 50% of
the expected budget of $400,000. You can help make this DXpedition happen
by visiting our website, and contributing today.
Thank you in advance for your support.
The Baker Island 2018 Team
OJ0, MARKET REEF (Reminder). Pasi, OH3WS, is once again active as OJ0W
from Market Reef until May 4th. Activity will be limited to his spare
time on 20-6 meters using CW and SSB. Pasi will try 60m on both CW and
SSB, listen on 5354 kHz. QSL via OH3WS, by the Bureau or direct.
PACIFIC TOUR (Update). Dave, WJ2O, has announced his plans to activate a
few islands in the Pacific before and after he joins the KH1/NH7Z Baker
Island DXpedition. His tentative schedule (all dates are approx.) is as
American Samoa (KH8) -- Around June 8th; for 2 days
Samoa (5W) -- Around June 11th; for 2 days
American Samoa (KH8) -- Around June 13th; for 4 days; signing KH8/WJ2O
Baker Island (KH1) -- Around June 27th; for 10 days
Fiji (3D2) -- Around July 13th for 4 days
Dave reports from the Visalia DX Convention, "I don't have a license
for Samoa no Figi yet. I know on American Samoa I will sign simply KH8/WJ2O.
With the group on Baker we are KH1/KH7Z. I have a homebrew vertical (that
I haven't built yet) that will do 40, 30, 20, 17 and 15. I'm almost always
100% CW. Taking my usual beat up K3, but also my KPA500 so maybe I will be
heard? I'm good with LoTW and you can go direct through Ken, N2ZN."
PH00, THE NETHERLANDS (Special Event). Operators Tonny/PD1TV and Henri/
PA4HM will once again activate the special callsign, PH00GEVEEN, during
the annual "Wings and Wheels" event which is held at Hoogeveen Airfield
between May 5-22nd. Activity will be on various HF bands using SSB only.
Ascension Day is on May 10th, this year. QSL via the Bureau or direct

from the PJ2T contest station. Look for more details to be forthcoming.

REALTIME BAND CONDITIONS WEB SITE <http://www.bandconditions.com>:
The purpose of this experimental Web site is to provide 24-7-365 actual
(REALTIME) band condition information to CW QRPp, QRPe and CW/SSB for
Contesters interested in increasing their scores. It can also be of
benefit to other Radio Amateurs to determine band conditions for Nets
and casual QSO's. This information is NOT based on any software pre-
dictions or any kind of satellite based readings. It is based on a
new Ionospheric sounding method called "HF Ionospheric Interferometry"
which operates very similarly to the PolSAR system used by NASA.
