Press Release 9 : Jun 02, 2011

We have received many online requests for QSLs and our QSL Manager Joe W3HNK as always has been efficiently handling these as well as the direct requests for QSLs that he has been getting. Joe has reported that he has already completed most of the direct and OQRS requests. OQRS requests for QSLs via bureau will also be addressed shortly.

We are thankful for the support of all our donors and by end of June we hope to be able to upload our log to ARRL LoTW for members of clubs who supported us as well as for individual donors. We will now initiate the collection of member lists from those clubs - lists can be sent to This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it . As mentioned before the expedition the rest of the LoTW uploads will definitely happen before March 2012.

Stay tuned

Press Release 8 : Apr 04, 2011

VU4PB went QRT as scheduled at 1829z on 31st March 2010 and the various operators have headed home to get back to their normal lives.

A large number of log check requests have been generated due to the pirate activities that unfortunately took place. We request all who sent in their requests to standby while we address the emails received over the next two weeks. Only after this is done will the final logs be sent over to our QSL Manager - Joe W3HNK for QSL responses.

The breakup of QSOs by Continent for the operation which logged around 33,000 contacts is given below:

EU - 45%

AS - 30%

NA - 20%

Others - 5%

Stay tuned

Press Release 7 : Mar 30 , 2011

With just a few hours left in the operation, two more operators have left as planned for the mainland this morning.

This now leaves just six operators and we are working with three stations and the process of dismantling the stations starts tomorrow as the team returns to the mainland on the 2nd of April.

As earlier reported we have had several instances of pirate operators masquerading as VU4PB which has spoilt the fun for numerous DXers, a real pity and one is not sure what joy it brings to those “radio amateurs” who indulge in such activities.

The team will go QRT at 1829z on 31st March 2011

Stay tuned and do lookout for us

Press Release 6 : Mar 20 , 2011

VU4PB was hit by a noticeable pirate operation on 40m CW between 1527z to 1817z on 16th March 2011. This was at a time when our 40m CW station had gone off air at 1527z. All DXers please note that QSOs with VU4PB made during the above period was by a Slim Op. We understand the pain this news will cause and hope you can make QSOs on 40m with the real VU4PB soon.

We would also like to say that three of our key operators have been unable to join us at VU4PB as planned due to health and family issues and we have been working hard to fill the gaps with the operators that we have.

Stay tuned and do lookout for us
