Just made a contact with 4C1JPG on AO-51 around 2218 on a 70 degree pass here in northern CA. They had a good signal into AO-51.
There were several other contacts made with 4C1JPG on that pass.

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