DXCC CARD CHECKING RULE CHANGE --->  Acting  on  a  recommendation  by  ARRL
Membership and Volunteer Programs Manager  Dave  Patton,  NN1N,  the  ARRL's
Programs and Services Committee (PSC) adopted new rules for ARRL field  card
checkers. ARRL card checkers now may check  QSL  cards  for  those  entities
deleted from the DXCC list and, with exceptions, check cards for 160  meters
(i.e. only those Card Checkers who have achieved DXCC on 160m are  permitted
to check 160m QSLs in the field, Ed.) In addition, the PSC  decided  not  to
change the process by which card checkers are appointed.  Full  details  can
be found at www.arrl.org

DX-INFO ---> "DX-Info is a web-based  application  that  helps  chasing  for
missing  band  and  mode  slots  for  DXCC",  Marek   DH9SB    says.  "After
registration and uploading a log file  in  ADIF  you  will  get  a  personal
calendar with DX information for the current week". Detailed information  ca
be found at www.dx-info.de

QUEEN'S  DIAMOND  JUBILEE  SPECIAL  PREFIXES    --->    Subject    to  prior
authorisation, individual amateur radio operators and Club stations  in  the
United Kingdom may use special prefixes from 5 May to 10 June  to  celebrate
the Diamond Jubilee  of  Queen  Elizabeth  II.  The  second  letter  in  the
existing call sign (D,  I,  J,  M,  U,  W,  etc,  plus  E  for  Intermediate
licences) may be replaced by the letter "Q"; where no second letter  exists,
the letter "Q" may be added. For instance,  GD0XXX  (Isle  of  Man),  GI0XXX
(Northern Ireland), GJ0XXX (Jersey), GM0XXX (Scotland),  GU0XXX  (Guernsey),
GW0XXX (Wales) and G0XXX (England) may all be amended to GQ0XXX.
