I am planning to operate 6m this weekend from a ridge at 6930' on the DN24/DN34 line in Idaho. For those of you collecting grids, a contact with me will count as both DN24 and DN34. I will have an M2 6M5XHG on a 30' mast and a KW. I will monitor 50.125 until the band opens and then QSY to 50.190.  I hope to be able to set up Friday night and tear down mid morning on Monday. In the mornings, I will call CQ on FSK441 on 50.190. I will beam down toward CM87 to work the PNW on backscatter. I should also have a very good shot toward the east and southeast. I don't know if I will have any cell service up there, so if you do hear me, please spot me on the cluster.

Samoa, 5W. Tom, KC0W, is now QRT as KH8/KC0W from American Samoa after making 12,871 QSOs from there. However, he continues on his single op  "Cows Over the World" International DXpeditions Tour to his second island activation, Samoa, and is now operating as 5W0COW. Activity will be CW only on 160-6 meters using 500 watts into vertical antennas over salt water. He will be in all major CW contests. His length of his stay is unknown. QSL via KC0W direct only. A log search will be available on ClubLog. He does not use LoTW. See QRZ.com for more details.
Ohio/Penn DX Bulletin #1269 14 Jun. 2016 - July? 2016

American Samoa, KH8. KC0W's "Worldwide DXpedition" is expected to start on 12 April from Tutuila, American Samoa. Look for KH8/KC0W to operate CW only on 160-6 metres; he will run 500 watts to vertical antennas over salt water. "I will start off by operating from a beach the east side of the island", Tom says. "Signals to EU/JA/VK will probably be attenuated due to the tall mountains running down the center of KH8. After a month or two I will then relocate to another beach on the west side of the island specifically for EU/JA/VK". Length of stay is not known, as he announced that "the determining factor will be when the pileups die down". Refrain from working him twice on the same band, as "any station trying to dupe QSO me will have all past QSOs deleted & will be blacklisted". QSL via KC0W, direct only ("all QSL cards sent to my PO Box while I'm on this DXpedition will be answered by an assistant"). He will not use LoTW.
Sixitalia Weekly 4 Apr. 2016 - June/July? 2016
E.d. OZ6OM Note: From KC0W´s QRZ.com profile: QRV 160 - 6 meters at 500 watts to vertical antennas over salt water. QRV in all major CW contests. This entire DXpedition is 100% CW. No microphones have been brought along.

St. Paul Isl., CY9C. (Press Release/update). Randy, N0TG, sent out the following CY9C August DXpedition update on May 10th [edited]: Additional operators have been added to the DXpedition team and assigned to the North-east Point site. This brings the total number of operators to 11. Joining the team are the following: Lee/WW2DX, who will include 2 Meter EME, Satellite, and 6 meters to the DXpedition operation. RTTY from this site will be provided by Pat/N2IEN, and Ray/W2RE will be adding to the SSB operation. This completes the staffing for 11 operators total. The Northeast Site with 5 operators assigned and Atlantic Cove 6 operators.
All pre-DXpedition donors that work us will receive a QSL automatically without any request required. Just a small way for us to say "thank you". PayPal or Credit Card process is available via
http://www.cy9dxpedition.com. We will be using ClubLog and the logs will be uploaded in real-time and will be available for viewing.
Ohio/Penn DX Bulletin #1266 15 May 2016 - 29 Aug. 2016

St. Paul Isl., CY9C. Update. August 19-29th. Randy, N0TG, reports the following on April 16th: As was reported previously, we will have two separate sites...separated approximately 1.5 miles.
Site 1, will be the Atlantic Cove site with 6 operators. We will try to keep 4-5 radios running and more if 12/10m opens. Our plan is to have a RTTY station active at all times.  From this site 160 will be given lots of attention with the Battle Creek Special antenna.
Site 2, the Northeast Point separate island will be enhanced to include 4 -5 operators active at all times, thus the dxpedition in total can potentially have 8-10 radios working most of the time. We are seriously considering 6m EME and Satellite, however, we need to work out the planning details. And, as always, budget matters are a significant consideration as we expand operations. We appreciate the support by many to date. The desire is to make this a very complete operation that will offer fun and meeting needs for all interests.

St. Paul Isl., CY9C. Update. The following update was posted on the CY9C Web page on April 5th [edited]: We have decided to setup "two" sites. One will be on the Northeast point, a separate island where the lighthouse is located; the second site is the more traditional site for DXpeditions known as Atlantic Cove. The distance between sites will maximize the ability to operate two stations simultaneously on the same band.
Many times there will be a CW/RTTY and SSB operating on the same band. Have you viewed the AERIAL Fly-over?
http://www.cy9dxpedition.com/dxpedition-site.html
Added notes; Also, take a look and fill out "NEED" survey on their website at
http://www.cy9dxpedition.com/need-survey.html
A serious effort is being planned to address those specific needs.
Support/donations; A special "thank you" to donors is listed on their Web page
http://www.cy9dxpedition.com/news--sponsors.html that contributed financially to the DXpedition. All pre-DXpedition donors that work them will receive a QSL automatically without any request required. Every donation is significant....none is too small. Thank you for considering to assist the DXpedition. The single most expensive item is the cost for the transportation to access the island. Donations can be made Via this link http://www.cy9dxpedition.com/donate.html
(If desired, more details / info on this matter, contact: N0TG - E-mail address per QRZ.com).

St. Paul Isl., CY9. Update. The St. Paul Island DXpedition scheduled for August 19-29th, will have 9 operators: Murray/WA4DAN (Co-Leader), Randy/N0TG (Co-Leader), Will/AA4NC, Jay/K4ZLE, Bill/K5DHY, Wayne/K8LEE, John/N8AA, Aaron/VA1AXC and Phil/VA3QR. Activity and setup will be: Elecraft Transceivers and 500 Watt Amps. Operations on 160-6m, SSB, CW, and RTTY. Beams, Battlecreek Special (160), dedicated station for RTTY, and closely monitoring 12/10/6 meters for open band condx. Randy updated OPDX on January 15th: The official documentation granting permission for St. Paul operations has been issued. As always for DXpeditions, many
details and documentation involved; the Canadian officials were kindly, professional and a pleasure to work with. We have begun gathering the many items required for the DXpedition operation. Firm arrangements for transport have been secured."
The team continues to look for funds/donations due to the following as reported on January 1st: "One of the requirements for permission to access St. Paul is a very large Liability Insurance Policy. The dollar coverage size is large and finding an underwriter was a challenge. We are pleased to report that we now have the insurance policy paid for and in hand. This was a major challenge that team members worked diligently to accomplish." Those that have donated are listed on the Sponsor's list on the Web page at
http://www.cy9dxpedition.com/news--sponsors.html No amount is too small; all who donate will receive a QSL automatically without having to request one. The team is fully committed and investing significantly; your financial support will help and is appreciated more than words can express. The single most expensive item is the cost for the transportation to access the island. Donations can be made via this link: http://www.cy9dxpedition.com/donate.html

St. Paul Isl., CY9. The following update was posted on the CY9C Web page on November 9th [edited]: As 2016 quickly approaches, focus on DXpedition planning details intensifies. All is going very well as we continue to develop the operating plan, site plan, and plans for getting equipment and personnel onto the island. We thank the many that have responded to the "NEED" survey on the website. See the following at http://www.cy9dxpedition.com/need-survey.html
A serious effort is being planned to address those specific needs. The other matter is financial planning. In the relatively near future we'll need to secure the transportation to the island. Those that have donated are listed on the Sponsor's list on the Web page at

Norfolk Isl., VK9N. Announced on June 2nd [edited]: The Quake Contesters who previously activated YJ0X on their DXpedition to Vanuatu in 2014 announce that they will be operating from Norfolk Island with callsign VK9NZ between September 25th and October 8th, 2016. The operators are well-known DXers Geoff/ZL3GA, Mark/ZL3AB, Paul/ZL4TT (ex-ZL4PW) and Phil/ZL3PAH.
They will operate 160m to 6m (depending on propagation) with up to 3 stations operating simultaneously. Equipment will be 2 x K3 & KPA500, and 2 x FT450D. One FT450D will be dedicated to 6m with a delta loop monitoring for openings. They will operate CW, SSB and RTTY and will be attempting to give QSOs to those parts of the world which need VK9N most according to ClubLog. They will be operating in the Oceania SSB Contest during the first weekend of October (October 1-2nd).
Antennas will include two folding hexbeams for 20m - 10m and verticals & wires or the lower bands. They are staying at Anson Bay Lodge where there is plenty of room for antennas.
Since two of their XYLs are coming along this will be a 'DXpedition with shopping' in their unique Quake Contesters style, but do not be deceived - this is a serious DXpedition and their target is to make 30k+ QSOs during their stay and to hand out as many ATNOs and new band/mode slots to as many DXers as they can.
ZL3PAH is the QSL manager. QSLs will be available via OQRS on ClubLog. Logs will be posted to LoTW after the DXpedition as soon as they have been checked and busted QSOs corrected. VK9NZ will use the expedition feature of ClubLog including leaderboards. Depending on internet reliability they hope to post QSOs in real time to ClubLog.
Members of the DXpedition will cover their own travel and accommodation costs, but donations will be sought from individuals and DX associations to cover additional costs including excess baggage, equipment insurance and any one-time necessary hardware costs.
