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!
