David -
Superior!  Here I thought I was stuck on the back 9 of GOLF forever.  And great to see IOTA continue. Thanks to you and everyone else involved in these endorsement changes.  I know they are a lot of work, but endorsements are a major part of what makes PODXS fun for me.  Right up there with the contests!  Now if I could just find some more A's for WTW......hi hi.

Wow!  Outstanding job guys!
I'm really happy about the IOTA continuing.  Given enough time even I can get to 100!
This is what makes this club the funnest.
Thanks for the effort!

Remember that there is now ONLINE SUBMISSION for all endorsements!
Just upload to http://hamclubs.info/070-checker  and click the "submit" button for any completed awards.  Be sure to look at the "070-WTW" and "070-LONP" links on your report, too!!   Get those sticker requests in before Matt KK4CPS puts together the September mailing (will be at end of Sep).

We'd like to announce some changes to the current endorsements, that we think the membership will enjoy:

* the IOTA series will NOT expire on 8/31 -- We will keep this series going ... This is toughesst one to manage (really needs a "eyeball test" for everything), and Joe KJ8O has volunteered to take on that challenge.   We are working through the IOTA backlog, and it will be cleared before the Sep mailing.

* WABOL is back!!!  WABOL 2014 -- Work 50  2x LONP contacts during the calendar year (back to 1/1 for 2014), where both 070 members are also LONP members at the time of the QSO.   We'll do this as a yearly endorsement, so it "resets" each calendar year.

* PSK GOLF is back!!  The major grid squares are grouped into 18 "holes" of 18 grids.  The challenge is to work 1 contact in each "hole".  Levels are 9 and the full 18.  The full 18 is a real challenge, and I know a lot of you have been chasing it for a while.   Standings have been restored on the website;  Contacts since 2003-11-03 are valid.

* Rule change for the Alaska, Aloha, and DX-Specials endorsements -- ALL stations are now eligible (e.g. KL7's can participate in Alaska; VE's can participate in the 2014 Canada DX-Special; etc).

MORE TO COME!!  About 6 new endorsements will be announced later this week to start on the 1st.  Stay tuned!!

Feedback is welcome!

Thank you to everyone who called me this weekend, it was a blast!

John K0L / KC0DEB  #069




Some upcoming DX ..

Jerry N9AVY
 

Some DX to watch for ...

- n9avy

7Q, MALAWI (Update/Postponed). Roger, ZS6RJ, and members of the Black Mamba Contest & DXpedition Team, have informed OPDX the following [edited]:
  Due to work commitments, the team has changed the original timing of
the 7QAA DXpedition from November 2014 to the following fixed dates in
March 2015:  10 member CW team active between March 11-21st              10 member SSB/RTTY team active between March 22nd-April 1st
  Each team will operate 4 stations on the air together. Equipment will
be 2x Elecraft K3's, 2x Kenwood TS-590's and 4x Expert 1K or 1.3K FA
linear amplifiers. Antennas are 4x NA4RR hexbeams at 40 feet each with
Yaesu rotators, 2x inverted L's with remote MFJ 1.5Kw tuners for 40
through 160 meters and K9AY receiving antennas. The SSB team will also
participate in the CQWW WPX SSB Contest, and also operate some additional CW and PSK.
  Both teams will be active from 160 through 10 meters. Daily free LoTW
and Clublog uploads will be provided, and we will use the band-slot
tracking feature in Clublog to promote a competitive spirit amongst the
DX fraternity. They feel due to the extended 20 day operating period there
will be ample time to work the "little pistols" as well as the band-slot
chasers. QSL cards will be available after the event too - details of
QSL manager route to follow.

N6, UNITED STATES. Operators Todd/KH2TJ, Bruce/K6ST, William/WB6CZG and
Mike/K7MS were expected to be active as N6L in a DXpedition to Lassen
Volcanic National Park, between August 21-25th. Activity is to celebrate
Lassen Volcanic Nat'l Park's 98th Birthday. Operations are on 80-10 meters
using CW, SSB, and the Digital (PSK31, JT65, RTTY) modes. QSL N6L via KH2TJ.

PJ5, SINT EUSTATIUS (5V7 Togo Postponed!). The Czech DXpedition team that was expected to go to Togo for 14 days, between September 25th and October 3rd, have postponed their operation and have opted to go to Sint Eustatius (PJ5) instead. It was announced on the CDXP Web page, August 20th [edited]:
"Due to unexpected development of EBOLA disease in neighboring West Africa Countries we have decided to postpone 5V7's activities until 2015." This year, during the same period they will activate PJ5 and sign PJ5/homecall and PJ5/OL8R. Activity "should" be the same as their planned 5V7 (160-10 meters using CW, SSB and the Digital modes. They plan to be in the CQWW DX RTTY Contest (September 27-28th)). QSL via OK6DJ, direct, by the Bureau, eQSL, LoTW or using the OQRS on ClubLog. For more details and updates,
see their Web pages at:  http://www.cdxp.cz/
                          https://www.facebook.com/groups/1472348776313779

ZD8, ASCENSION ISLAND (Reminder). Steve, G3ZVW, will once again be active as ZD8N from Georgetown between August 21-29th. Activity will be on 80-10 meters using CW, SSB and the Digital modes. Look for him during the evenings, early mornings, and over the weekend. QSL via his home callsign, by the Bureau or direct.
