CY9C, ST. PAUL ISLAND DXPEDITION (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.

REALTIME BAND CONDITIONS WEB SITE <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.

Manager Gennady, UA9AB: I have used UA9AB to find and receive Russian
QSLs for the last few years. He has contact with many other QSL managers
for old and much needed QSLs not available by other routes. Gene is a
stamp collector, looking for commemorative stamps from around the world.
He will take an envelope of interesting used commemorative stamps in lieu
of IRCs or other payments. Gene also collects mint commemorative stamps.
Contact Gene directly at <ua9ab at mail dot ru> before sending any mail,
other than donating stamps to him. Whether you need help or not, the
commemorative stamps from your incoming mail from anywhere in the world
will probably be of interest to Gene. His address is valid at QRZ.com:
