EDITOR'S SPECIAL NOTICE : This week's bulletin was sent out earlier than normal to accommodate the late CQWW WPX CW Contest announcements. Also, we wanted to provide the readers with a consolidated listing of the CQWW WPX CW Contest participants.

SPECIAL NOTE FROM EDITOR (Short Dayton HamVention Wrap-Up By KB8NW) The 2012 Dayton HamVention was really great this year. The weather was hot, but good. The attendance was high - reported 25,000+. There were plenty of things to do and see. I heard there were great turnouts at all the dinner banquet, forums and the Contest University. The Northern Ohio DX Association's hospitality suite was once again a big hit with a record attendance. During the SWODXA DX Dinner, the CQ Hall of Fame awards (as seen in OPDX.1062.20) were announced by Chip/K7JA and Gail/K2RED. Your editor, along with Don/K8MFO and Tom/K8CX, was there to receive the plaque for Don Chesser, W4KVX (SK). Also, announced was the SWODXA's "DXpedition of the Year" given to the HK0NA Malpelo Island operation, and the "DXpeditioner of the Year" was given Rudy Klos, DK7PE. The DX Forum on Saturday, had excellent presentations on T32C, ST0R and HK0NA. However, the presentation that stood out was the one by Don Greenbaum, N1DG, on "DXpedition's Funding and Costs". This is something every DXer should see and should be shown at every DX association and club. It will open your eyes. Don's excellent PowerPoint presentation from Dayton is now available at the NCDXF's Web page at: http://www.ncdxf.org/misc/N1DG-DXpeditioncosts-Dayton2012.ppsx In all, can't wait until next year. Hope to see you there.....

RADIO ARCALA MOVES ACROSS THREE CONTINENTS IN WPX (Press Release) "In the summer months of the Far North, the midnight sun never sets and no QSOs are possible on the point rich lower bands.

The troops are still spearheaded by their battle ship, OH8X and the specific target is to reach North America with the massive hardware of Arcala fame, boldly challenging the forces of Mother Nature.
Northern Europe:

OH8X will be operated by Toni Linden, OH2UA
OH10X by Kim Ostman, OH6KZP
OH0X, Aland Islands by Pekka Holstila, OH2TA
