At 6 UTC on 25 April, the BS7H team left Hong Kong harbour on a 60-hour
voyage to Scarborough Reef, from where they intended to be QRV for 9 days.
However, at 02.40 UTC on 27 April the team was located approximately 240
nautical miles north west of the reef and making less than the expected
progress because of extremely rough seas. Current estimated arrival to BS7 is
their Sunday morning local time. Because of rough seas, there has been no
maritime mobile operation. The announcement that they have commenced radio
operations will appear on the expedition's website (www.bs7h.com). The roster
includes eighteen operators:
Chen Peng, BA1HAM Tom Berson, ND2T
Fan Bin, BA1RB Joe Blackwell, AA4NN
David Chen, BA4RF Paul Pescitelli, K4UJ
Chen Fang, BA4RC Mike Mraz, N6MZ
Terry Liang, BA7NQ Mike McGirr, K9AJ
Ko Chih-Ta, BV6HJ James Brooks, 9V1YC
Eddie Valdez, DU1EV Martti Laine, OH2BH
Jun Moreto, DU1BA Massimo Mucci, I8NHJ
Bob Vallio, W6RGG Christian Entsfellner, DL3MBG
Scarborough Reef has unique and dangerous attributes, and as such BS7H will
not have online logs or pilots. All efforts are on keeping the team safe so
they can provide a new one to as many hams as possible. QSL via KU9C. Jose,
CT1BOH has created a set of interactive propation maps for BS7H.Select a time
and frequency, and the corresponding propagation map will be displayed. The
maps are accessible at http://www.qsl.net/ct1boh/propagation.htm

3B7C ---> Plans for the Five Star DXers Association's 7-24 September
DXpedition to St. Brandon [425DXN 822] are progressing well. A suitable boat
has been chartered to take the team and its 6 tonnes of equipment to the
island, the licence has been received, and all permits are in place. The team
will be operating from Isle du Sud, the southern end of what is shown on the
charts as Cocos Island. Some of the previously-announced members have had to
drop out of the expedition. The team now includes 9M6DXX, DK7YY, DL7AKC,
EI5DI, G0OPB, G3BJ, G3IZD, G3NHL, G3NUG, G3SVL, G3USR, G3XTT, G4TSH, GM3POI,
K3NA, MD0CCE, N6HC and SM5GMZ. The full Press Release no. 4, issued on 24
April, is available on the expedition's website, which is now up and running
at http://www.3b7c.com [TNX G3XTT]

HS0ZCW ---> Charles, HS0ZCW (K4VUD) will have an antenna (a sloper pointed
north) for 80 metres and is asking for direct replies to sked suggestions.
The skeds must be on Thailand weekends (Thai amateurs cannot operate this
band unless there is a contest running, and contests are almost all only on
weekends). Thailand is UTC +7 hours. The frequency must be between 3500 and
3535 kHz. Feel free to e-mail him suggestions of skeds (k4vud_at_hotmail.com).

J5BI ---> Jack, F6BUM reports that his recent J5BI operation from Bubaque
Island (AF-020), Guinea-Bissau has been approved for DXCC credit.

JT1Y ---> Andrea, IK1PMR and Claudia, IZ1GLO (K2LEO) went QRT at 11.09 UTC on
24 April and left Mongolia on the 25th. They made over 4,000 QSOs (600+ RTTY,
39 SSB, all others CW) on 160-12 metres, and their logs are already available
on line (www.ik1pmr.com/logs/). Please note that the other JT1Y station
(operated by I0SNY, I5NOC and I8YGZ) has paper logs, and those QSOs are not
online. [TNX IK1PMR]

PIRATE ---> Pasquale, IW0HEX reports that his callsign has been repeatedly
pirated on the PacketCluster.

QSL CN3A & 5D5A ---> Roberto, I2WIJ reports that "the CN3A direct QSL
requests backlog has been cleared, and all the cards are in the post mail".
 From now on, new requests for CN3A will be answered once a week. The 5D5A
direct QSL requests backlog will be processed starting on 2 May.

QSL VIA VK4AAR ---> Alan says that one USD no longer covers return postage
from Australia to any part of the world. One Euro does, but "do not send
coins!", Alan says, because "banks only accept and exchange paper money".
Alan is the QSL manager for 9V0A, 9V1DX, KH2VM, P29RH, V63PD, VI0ANARE, VK0MM
(Macquarie), VK6AN (OC-266), VK6BM (OC-234), VK6BSI (OC-243), VK6DHI
(OC-206), VK6LI (OC-071), VK8AN/6 (OC-154), VK8AN/8 (OC-229), VK8AV/3
(OC-136), VK8DP, VK8MI (OC-173) and VP2V/W3HQ (the logs for C21RH, VU3RSB,
YJ8AA, ZK2JJ and ZK2PJ are now closed).
