>>>>>>> ATTENTION PLEASE !!! <<<<<<<
I would remind you, as described above, that the operations are started from Herne Island since September 23, 2011. So all QSOs on 21 and 22 September are not valid for AF-068, because, as repeated several times, maked from HQ of ARRAM in RABAT (CN8MC).
Je voudrais vous rappeler, comme dÃ©crit ci-dessus, que les opÃ©rations ont commencÃ© de Herne Ã®le le 23 Septembre 2011. Alors tous les QSO du 21 et 22 Septembre ne sont pas valables pour AF-068, tel que rÃ©alisÃ©, comme rÃ©pÃ©tÃ© plusieurs fois, du HQ de ARRAM de Rabat (CN8MC).
Vorrei ricordarvi, come scritto sopra, che le operazioni da Herne Island sono cominciate il 23 Settembre 2011. Quindi tutti i QSO fatti il 21 e 22 Settembre non sono validi per AF-068, in quanto effettuati, come ripetuto piÃ¹ volte, dalla sede dell' ARRAM in RABAT (CN8MC).
More location info:
Group name: Western Sahara South Group
Worked by 11.3 % IOTA's hunters.
Islands of the group:
No credit will be given for operations after 31 January 2001 from the following islands unless evidence is produced that the operation was authorised by the government with de facto control - copies of the licence and permission to operate from the island are required. Credit will continue to be allowed for operations that took place before 1 February 2001. Nothing in the way that the island is listed below should be taken to indicate the IOTA Committee's view as to the legal position on sovereignty. AF-068 S0 (CN) HERNE and VIRGINIA ISLANDS.
