I saw this on another mailing list, and haven't seen any mention
of it anywhere else, so here goes.... Members of the "Radio
Experimentadores de Occidente" radio club XE1TD will use the special
Mexican call 4C1JPG during the 2011 Pan-American Games, currently
taking place in Guadalajara. 4C1JPG ("Juegos Panamericanos
Guadalajara", the Spanish translation of the event in that Mexican
city) will be on 160m through 6m, as well as the satelltes through
30 October 2011.
QSL cards will be available, as well as electronic confirmations in
both LOTW and eQSL. More information about 4C1JPG, including the
Mexican address of the 4C1JPG QSL manager, is available at:
By the way, for those who work that station - or any Mexican
station - and would like to send SASEs instead of including a
US dollar bill or IRC with your QSL request, I have lots of
Mexican postage stamps. Using SASEs works a lot better when
trying to send something to a Mexican ham. Please e-mail me
directly if you would like to get some stamps for QSLing.
Good luck and 73!
