Demeuleneere, ON4WW in their booklet "Ethics and  Operating  Procedures  for
the Radio Amateur". The booklet is currently available in 28 languages,  and
can be downloaded for free from quite  a  number  of  websites.  The  entire
collection can be found at www.ham-operating-ethics.org

QSL A92IO ---> "Due to the deteriorating situation  within  the  Kingdom  of
Bahrain", Dave (A92IO/ EI3IO) says, "it is  becoming  incresingly  difficult
to travel within the country. Therefore please do not send QSL  requests  to
my Bahrain address (PO Box 31183) until further notice. Also please  do  not
send to Ireland for the time being. At present all  QSOs  are  confirmed  by
ARRL's Logbook of the World for DXCC and by eQSL for WAZ etc.  Sending  QSLs
