of the call sign E2E for all HF bands and all modes. "This  is  a  real  and
legitimate  call",  HS0ZCW  says,  "sought  for  contests    and   DXing  in
representing Thailand on an equal basis like other 1x1  callsigns  of  other
nations". The callsign has been issued  to  the  Radio  Amateur  Society  of
Thailand's club station in Bangkok, whose main callsign remains HS0AC.

that I thought had been sent via the  bureau  many  years  ago",  Al,  VE1AL
says. "The cards are for QSOs with CY9DXX, CY0DXX, VE1AL and  VF1L,  plus  a
few for other callsigns I have used. I  am  integrating  my  2010  QSLs  for
VE1AL with these cards and they should be in the mail to the  bureau  within
the next few weeks. Well over 1000 QSLs are involved and I regret that  many
will probably be returned due to various reasons". All of Al's  computerized
logs have been uploaded to LoTW, "but that  does  not  include  the  CY9  or
CY0DXX logs".
