AUSTRALIAN POSTAL  RATES  --->  Effective  22  October,  the  new  rate  for
"greeting cards" (must be enclosed in a sealed  small  letter  envelope  and
endorsed CARD ONLY) up to 20 gr to  any  destination  is  AUD  1.65  (=  USD
1.70). The new rates for airmail letters up  to  50  gr  are  AUD  1.65  for
destinations in the Asia/Pacific zone, and AUD 2.25 for destinations in  the
rest of the world. An online postage calculator  is  provided  by  Australia
Post (http://auspost.com.au/)

OPERATION CANCELLED ---> Bill, KG4WV and Ed, KG4KL are  now  QRT,  nor  will
John KG4EM and Norm KG4AJ participate in the CQWW SSB Contest, "due to  loss
of the ham shack to Hurricane Sandy which took  off  the  roof  and  damaged
several antennas". [TNX The Daily DX]

OPERATION CANCELLED ---> Bad weather conditions  have  forced  OG9X,  OH2HAN
and OH6XX to cancel their 25-29 October  activity  (OJ0B,  OJ0X  and  OJ0MI)
from Market Reef [425DXN 1120].

QSL ET3AA ---> "Anyone working ET3AA should  no  longer  use  the  P.O.  Box
7392", The Daily DX reports, as the widow of the late Sid May,  ET3SID  "has
apparently refused to give the P.O. Box Key for the ET3AA club  station  and
likewise is not forwarding QSL envelopes to the students at the  ET3AA  club
station". So N2OO "has agreed for the short turn to handle the  QSL  chores,
and K3LP will have QSLs prepared and printed".
