I will be using a special event callsign on the birds
this weekend, Saturday and Sunday, to celebrate the 20th
Anniversary of the OPDX Bulletin. The callsign will be
The OPDX Bulletin is a free DX Bulletin that is distributed
via an email list and picked up by email groups around the
world. Papays.com hosts the official web version of the
Bulletin which comes out every Sunday evening. Tedd Mirgliotta
KB8NW is the editor of this publication which often includes satellite
announcements. Tedd is the President of the Northern Ohio DX
Association (NODXA) and has devoted a good part of his life to this
free source of DX information. There have been 1001 issues
published to date. Thousands of amateurs around the world read
this bulletin every week.
The NO8DX/20 call will be used by many of our NODXA club members on the
HF and VHF bands. Those who wish to receive a special QSL card
should send their SASE to the qrz.com address for KB8NW.
If there are any rare grid operations on the birds over the
weekend, I will obviously yield the bird to them.
