6O     - "Due to the recent activation of Somalia by the 6O0CW group",  Paul
         N6PSE says, the Intrepid-DX  Group  has  decided  to  cancel  their
         plans to conduct a DXpedition in November as  6O3A  [425DXN  1091].
         "We feel that the  need  for  6O  contacts  has  been  sufficiently
         diminished to make it worth-while to continue with  our  plans.  In
         the coming days, we will refund 100% of all donations made  to  us.
         We hope to make other rare  activations  for  2013".  Darko,  J28AA

and building meaningful relationships in the Republic of Yemen".

significantly affected the  course  of  Amateur  Radio,  as  well  as  radio
amateurs who have made significant contributions either  to  amateur  radio,
