VU2JOS for the following DX information.

3A, MONACO. Laura, 3A2MD, is usually very active on 80 meters. Look for

her on 3506 or 3798 kHz starting 0630z. She was also heard on 20 and

10 meters CW on 28031 kHz at 1330z or on 14033 kHz at 1500z working

USA on long path. Frank, 3A2MW, is also active. Check 18135 kHz around

1000z or 14188 kHz around 1200z.

3C1, EQUATORIAL GUINEA. Erik, SM0AGD, is now active as 3C1AG until

February 5th. He has been active on 80/40/30/12/10 meters CW and 20/15

meters RTTY. A report from John, SM5DJZ, indicates that Erik is using

his normal AP8 GP, and has put up a dipole for 30 meters which later

he will be changing into a 160 meter dipole. Erik has also promised

some SSB activity, but his primary mode is CW. Erik has been very well

taken care of by Alan/3C5I and his XYL, and they meet almost every night.

Suggested frequencies he intend to use are:

CW - 1825-1830, 3500-3510, 7000-7010, 10100-10110, 14035, 18085,

21035, 24905 and 28035 kHz

SSB - Around 14195, 21295 and 28495 kHz

RTTY - 14080, 18100, 21080, 24920 and 28080 kHz

QSL via his homecall SM0AGD. His pattern of operating last week seems

to be the following:

10/12/15 meters - 0930-1730z 40 meters - 0200-0330z

20 meters - 2030-0130z 80 meters - 0430-0530z

30 meters - 0330-430z

3D2, CONWAY REEF (Update). Hrane, YT1AD, reported that the 2001 Conway

Reef DXpedition needs 2 more operators for CE0ZT DXpeditions. If interested,

please send E-mail to: ce6tbn@dxpedition.org

3V, TUNISIA. A YL operator was heard at the controls last week from 3V8BB

on 20 meters. Listen for Zaida to show up on 14260 kHz starting around

1100z and staying as late as 1400z.

3W, VIETNAM. This entity continues to have activity from it. 3W6AR was

heard on 21274 kHz from about 0015z to 0100z. Hau, 3W6LI, was heard

from Saigon on 28475 kHz around 0930z. QSL via IK2DUW.

3Y, BOUVET. Chuck, 3Y0C, continues to be active but mainly on 20

meters. However, he does show up once and awhile on 80/40/17 meters.

>From the WD4NGB Web page, Chuck's Icom PW1 amp is still not working,

but support guys have been in daily contact with the Icom reps in Japan

trying to find the problem on the PW1 amp. They are sending information

back and forth daily on the results of many tests. Chuck's beam is repaired,

and back up. He is still trying to make up some new antennas. The Hexbeam

is the only one of the originals to be in one piece. It has been repaired,

but the vertical was not repairable. He has put some low band wire

antennas up and will work on them as time permits. Chuck has been very

busy and in his spare time, he will try to get on RTTY within the next

2 days. Chuck has one more glitch in the RTTY software to correct, but

it looks good.

A5, BHUTAN. The Johnson family (A52GJ, A52MJ, A52VJ and A52YL) will be

active until February 2nd. Glenn, A52GJ, seems to be active the mostly.

He has really been hitting the lower bands at various times lately. If

you miss this activity, you will have another chance to work another

operator. Look for Dimitri, RA9CO, to be active as A52CO March 15-21st

on all bands CW and SSB.

AP, PAKISTAN. Bob, AP2JZB, has been calling CQ for stateside stations

on 17/12/10 meters also daily between 1300-1430z. Check around 18125,

24950 and between 28470 and 28510 kHz. QSL via K2EWB.

C9, MOZAMBIQUE. Hans, C91CU, was active this past week on 14165 kHz

for over an hour starting around 1715z.

D2, ANGOLA. Gabriele, D2EB, was heard on 15/10 meters this past week

between 1700 and 1800z. Check 21333 and 28495 kHz. QSL via I3LLH.

D6, COMOROS. By the time you read this, the D68BT and D68WL will be QRT

(expected at 1200z, Sunday, January 28th). Their estimated QSO count is

around 24,000 QSOs in the log (with dupes, around 32,000). Check the

following Web pages for more information:

large operation will be taking place between February 8-28th. Look for

the Caribbean (FM/Martinigue, J6/St.Lucia, J7/Dominica) the last few weeks

been on CW on 80/40/20/15/10, but there has been SSB. QSL via XW2A.

HK0, MALPELO ISLAND. Pedro, HK3JJH, sent a message to your editor in

Spanish which I tried my best to translate. Pedro reports to OPDX that

he is planning a DXpedition to Malpelo for which he has "corresponding

permission". There were NO dates given. However, he is look for some

help (green stamps) for this project. He plans to be on the island for a

month and will be active on 80/40/20/17/15/12/10 meters SSB and possibly
