TOP LISTS ---> The latest Topband, Topmode  and  Toplist  listings  are  now
available  at  www.425dxn.org/awards/toplist/index.html.   QSOs    confirmed
through LoTW or included in on-line logs  are  eligible  for  listing.  Send
your scores, as well as any request  for  further  information,  to  Erminio
Pandocchi I2EOW (i2eow[@]fastwebnet.it).

MALPELO 2012 ---> Three members of the HK0NA  team  have  just  completed  a
seven day reconnaissance visit to the island. This will be a very  demanding
DXpedition for several reasons - read the summary of their observations  and
view  some very  revealing pictures on www.hk0na.com. K4UEE, N4GRN and W6IZT
will travel  to Colombia  on 5-8 November for a  planning  meeting with team
leader, Jorge HK1R and  other team members.  With the information gained  on
the recent reconnaissance visit, decisions can be finalized concerning camp/
operating  sites, antenna  types  and  placement,  safety measures and other
critical decisions necessary to the ultimate success for the DXpedition. One
critical decision  to be made  concerns the  duration  of  the operation, as
they have permission to stay  on site  for 17  days  versus  the 14 days now
planned.  They  will  be  reviewing  the  DXpedition  budget to determine if
they  can  afford  the  extra $15,000  expense  for  three  additional days.

a quiet retired life", but he "was very active from 1972  to  1983  when  he
worked in the Wireless Dept of the Bhutan government. He gave me  his  stack
of log books  to  digitize  and  upload  to  LOTW,  about  30,000  estimated
contacts. I will be able to answer QSL requests for anyone  needing  a  card
for A51PN. He has  meticulous  notes  in  his  logs  about  QSLs  that  were
returned". QSL to Glenn R. Johnson, 207 Bear Creek Ln NW, Bemidji MN  56601,
