SPECIAL NOTE FROM EDITOR
My family and I would like to wish a "Happy Easter" to those who celebrate this special and holy holiday. This year is a very special holiday for my wife and I because we would also like to congratulate our daughter and son-in-law on their new arrival and our second grandchild (first granddaughter) "Lilly Grace" - born (while I was watching my grandson and putting the finish touches on last week's bulletin) April 13th, 9 lbs 11 oz. and 21 1/4 in. long....

BEST COMMUNICATION AWARD (by DxCoffee)
The following was a press release: DxCoffee has created an Award aimed at Dxpeditions. As you know, there are already several awards of this kind. Our Award, though, takes into account only the Communication aspect of a Dxpedition, that is, we mean to award the Dxpedition that has communicated with the ham community in the best way, providing "information" about its operation. By "information" we mean a bit of everything: from daily reports, to pictures, videos, forums, propagation hints, on line logs, advices on how to work the Dxpedition, etc. Clearly, most of these functions are implemented through the main instrument: the Dxpedition website, but other channels can also be used, such as bullettins sent by pilots or qsl managers or mailing lists. Every year, we will award a Dxpedition that has taken place in the preceding year. This year, we will present this Award for the first time at the Dxcoffee Party in Milazzo, Sicily, on May 17-18th. These are the rules of this award:
1) The online magazine DxCoffee (Authorization & Registration: Court of Vibo Valentia -Italy n. 3, March 20, 2012) establishes the "Best Communications Award By DxCoffee."
2) The prize is located at the Office of the Publisher for DxCoffee (Association LineaPunto).
3) DxCoffee calls a Committee for the "Best Communication Award by DxCoffee", presided over by an Award Manager and DxCoffee's Chief Editor. Members of the Committee are the DxCoffee staff members and those who forward their application to the Committee's Presidency.
4) The Committee annually presents the "Best Communication Award" to the best DxPedition (team or a single operator) among the operations that took place during the preceding year.
5) Operations to be evaluated include those that have been most diligent in managing and promulgating information through the means of communi- cation and have shown a marked communications ability (website, use of languages, press releases, bulletins, blogs, articles, pictures, logos, news usability, etc...).
6) The Committee shall make public the reasons for Award selection.
7) Under special circumstances, more than one Award could be presented for the same year.
8) All decisions are final.
9) The Award is presented free of charge.
10) DxCoffee institutes the "Best Communication Award" honor roll.
* Transient rule: the first Award will be presented in 2014 to a 2013 DxPedition.

IOTA NEWS
AS-143. A group of Chinese hams will be active from the rare Yongxing Island, Paracel Islands, sometime between April 21st and May 10th. The actual operation period depends on the schedule of the ship. Only one radio is allowed to be on the air 24 hours around the clock due to the limit of operators by the local authority. The assigned callsign will be B7CRA. Operators mentioned are Terry/BA7NQ, Che/BA7CK, De/BA7JA, Dick/BD7YC, Lin/BI7IOB and Vange/BA7IO. Equipment listed: 2xICOM 756PRO3 with 2x1KFA, 2xSB and 1 GP. QSL via BA4EG.
EU-032. Didier, F4ELJ, will be active as F4ELJ/P from Oleron Island (DIFM AT-025) between May 3-10th. Activity will be on the HF bands. QSL via his home callsign, direct, by the Bureau or LoTW.

OC-218. Operators Cezar/VE3LYC and Johan/PA3EXX will attempt to activate Matthew Island for a period of 4 days during the 10 days of September. The licensing authority of New Caledonia has approved for this operation the special callsign TX4A. Last operation from this IOTA took place 17 years ago, and the group is in demand by 94% of the IOTA members. Due to the remote location of this island, sailing from Noumea to Matthew Island return is expected to take 5 days. This will be not only a very difficult, but also very expensive project. The team is actively looking for financial support from groups and individuals who wish to assist in defraying some of the project costs. Donations can be sent to Cezar by PayPal at ve3lyc@hotmail.com or by mail. All contributions will be acknowledged on the expedition Web site, which will be available in due course.

A35V/A35X QSLING. Chris and Keith should be home, or very near, by the time you read this. Final logs will be uploaded to ClubLog and LoTW upon their return. Many log correction requests have been received by Chris and Steve, N3SL, their Manager. We will take care of the edits, don't worry. The OQRS option via ClubLog will NOT be enabled until later in the year - likely November or December. In the meantime, those who wish to use PayPal for direct cards may do so to "siouxdxaol.com" account. DX minimum is 2 USDs. US stations 1 USD is sufficient. They do not need your QSL! Be aware that cards will not be printed until June or July, so be patient.
VU4K QSLS. Krish, W4VKU (aka VU4K), is doing some redesigning of his VU4K QSL cards. He estimates at least a 3 to 4 week turn around on the new proof. If it is ok, he will approve it. When the printer returns the finished cards to him, he will start sending them out. He suggests to read/review his QSL procedures at the QRZ.com site for VU4K.
ZL7AAA 10M SSB QSO TIME GLITCH. If you have been puzzled or wondering why your 10m QSO is not in the log and cannot get a QSL via the OQRS, OPDX was informed about a log glitch in the ZL7AAA 10m QSO times. The operator used local time in the log instead of Zulu. ClubLog is rejecting QSOs if Zulu time is used/input for the OQRS.

S0, WESTERN SAHARA (Update)
Naama, S01A, has delayed his activity until early May because he did not receive the new equipment and antennas in time. Operators S01A, S01WS (club station "Amateur Radio Union Sahrawi") and S01AH are expected to receive their equipment at the end of April. Having over- come the technical and installation of multiple antennas problems, the maximum expected operating bands will be on 80-6 meters. They will be using three bazooka antennas, one for 60 meters. Naama apologizes for the short activity on March 9th. An equipment failure prevented him from continuing his activity. It is important to note that this DXpedition from the "Radio Club Amateur Radio Union of Sahrawi" (URS) is to help the Sahrawi operators develop their hobby on minimum technical conditions. Operators Naama/S01A, Man/S01AH and the URS/S01WS will operate on 60 meters, on 5366.5, 5371.5, 5380.5, 5398.5 and 5403.5 kHz USB. Naama and Man have a license to operate CW on this band on 5.368, 5.373, 5.382 and 5.405 kHz. It is suggested to watch the following for updates and news:

VK9MT (Final Press Release - Mellish Reef 2014)Dated April 17th [edited]:
VK9MT Mellish Reef was activated on 30th March at 04:34z with ZL4PW first in the log and went QRT on 4th April at 1353z with JL1MTY closing the log.Our decision to leave the island didn’t come easily; safety was always the first priority. Just as the last QSO was made it became clear we could not remain on the island another day. It was 01:00 (local) when the rain began. The wind was blowing at about 35 - 40 knots; we had water infil- trating the operating tents and the antennas were taking a severe beating. Over the 6 days we were on the island the weather grew progressively worse each day.
After a short meeting the on-island operators decided to QRT and begin packing the equipment in pelican cases for protection. We spent the next several hours packing equipment using head and hand torches.
When the Zodiac arrived for the 6AM shift change we began taking down the antennas and tents. Once the storm was officially declared Cyclone Ita there was no question we made the correct decision.
Our 10 day goal was 80,000 QSOs and as much RTTY as possible. In 5 days we made 40,000 Qs which put us on track for the original target.
ClubLog QSO summary:
Europe 36.1%, Asia 29.8%, North America 29.1%, Oceania 3.4%, South
America 1.2% and Africa 0.4%.
Modes: CW 61%, SSB 30.5% and RTTY 8.6%
All Time New One: All modes 26.1%
Unique Calls: 32.1%
The team of eleven operators and five boat crew worked well together. The measure of success isn’t how well one follows the plan but instead how we react to the unplanned. The weather required significant plan changes. Until we arrived at the reef the skipper was unable to determine if nighttime travel to and from the reef was possible. As it turned out, because of the many coral heads, the reef could only be travelled during daylight hours when the underwater coral was visible.
We watched Mellish Reef weather for weeks before leaving but Cyclone Ita required us to improvise, adapt and overcome. We knew things would get worse as reports of death and destruction came in from the Solomon Islands.
While disappointed, we are happy to have given ATNOs, band fills and to have put people on the Honor Roll and Top of the Honor Roll.
We appreciate the support from the corporate sponsors, foundations, clubs and the individual donors. When the books are closed we’ll provide an accounting to the clubs and foundations.
The team received many e-mails from the global DX community; we thank you for your concern, kind words and understanding.
Logs, QSLs and LoTW: Our QSL Manager Tim, M0URX, reports he’s made great progress with busted and missing calls. ClubLog is up to date with the most current logs, and is updated as problems are resolved.
LoTW will be uploaded at the time this Press Release is distributed.
It is estimated that the actual QSL cards will be in the mail by the end of July.
Those donating $50USD or more do not have to request their QSL; Tim will handle this for you.
Upcoming Hamfest Season: Several members of the VK9MT on-island team will be attending the Dayton Hamvention and the Friedrichshafen Ham Radio - International Exhibition for Radio Amateurs, as well as local ham club meetings and conventions.
