SPECIAL NOTE FROM EDITOR (By KB8NW)
There will not be an OPDX Bulletin next week and "possibly the week after". I will be attending the Dayton HamVention (HOPEFULLY!!!!!). It is totally up in the air right now.
Over the last several weeks, I have been experiencing shortness of breath. On Tuesday, May 7th, I had a "THALLIUM STRESS TEST" which showed some abnormalities. On May 10th, the Cardiac Doctor told me, or should I say she read me the riot-act, "no traveling or stressful work" until I have a heart catheterization. So some time this Monday before the HamVention, I will be at the Cleveland Clinic to have this procedure. If all goes well, I will be at Dayton. Some may remember that I had a double bypass in 2002. Let's hope I do not go there again......
"IF" I receive a major announcements, (and if I am able to) I will probably send out a special bulletin. However, PLEASE continue to send your DX information. You never know what I might do.... 73 de Tedd KB8NW

"About 250 contesters will attend Contest University (CTU) USA this coming Thursday (May 16) in Dayton, Ohio.Starting at 8:00 AM EDT there will be a live webcast available from the CTU website . Go to the CTU website on Thursday and you will see a button to click on that will allow you to see and hear some of the topics being presented live. With four class- rooms going most of the time, it is not possible to live stream every- thing, but you will definitely enjoy watching some of CTU from wherever you are. Last year hundreds of guys from all over the world got to experi- ence CTU live via the web. Some of the Dayton CTU students even sat in one classroom session and watched the live CTU stream for another session on their smart phone or laptop - at the same time - is this SO2CC? Single Operator Two CTU Classes!
Thanks to the support of the Northern California DX Foundation, if you know of any amateur radio operator under the age of 26 that will be in Dayton and would like to attend CTU tuition free, please tell them to go to the CTU home page and click on Scholarships. Or just click here:
http://www.contestuniversity.com/main/page_scholarships.html
Then use the contact us button to be considered for a scholarship. Or you can click here:
http://www.contestuniversity.com/main/page_contact_us.html
Pat, N9RV's, 'Contesting Terminology Glossary' on the CTU website has recently been updated. It is in the files section. If you or someone you know is just getting started in contesting, this is an excellent resource that explains lots of the contesting language. Here is the direct link:

J3, GRENADA (Team Members Needed)
Harry, AC8G, is working with Gill, J39AL, to arrange a team for the CQWW DX SSB Contest (October 26-27th) with time for individual DXing. Available to the team are antennas, towers, etc. for a large MULTI-MULTI contest station. About all that is needed are ops, transceivers (with accessories) and computers. Depending on team size, Gill's QTH and the local EOC would be used. Harry states,
"I will send an info E-mail with more details to those interested. You can contact me several ways, htflasher@gmail.com, 937-434-9616 or Skype using flasher-ac8g. Between the two locations (within distance rules), there are four beams already up and room for others. This is a GREAT chance to be DX and be in a major contest. The major cost is airfare. Costs on the island are fairly reasonable. This will be covered in my info E-mail. For those with Goggle Earth, Gill's QTH is at 12 degree 2.971 N. & 61 degree 44.386 W. Feel free to call - I am retired and home most of time."
