LOGS ---> A log search  for  P29NI  (OC-099),  P29VCX  (OC-103)  and  P29VPB
(OC-069) is now available at http://p29ni.yolasite.com/logs-online.php

PJ5J ---> The website for  the  upcoming  PJ5J  DXpedition  (30  November-12
December) [425DXN 1123] can be found at http://www.ndxa.net/pj5j/.

PT0S ---> The DXpedition to St. Peter  &  St.  Paul  Rocks  now  runs  three
stations during the day and two during the night. The  main  challenges  for
the team are limited Internet access, a difficult physical  environment  and
extremely limited space. For the time being the online logsearch  now  12517
QSOs made until 0928 UTC on 15 November:  not  only  do  they  have  limited
bandwidth, but also the satellite openings are very short and erratic.  This
causes severe delays in updates: "please bear with us", they  say,  "and  do
not 'over-dupe' us". They intend to make log corrections once they are  back
on land,  but  until  then  the  logs  are  as  published.  Keep  monitoring
http://pt0s.com/ for regular updates

QSL VIA DK2BJ ---> Bernd, VK6AA reports that the new QSL manager for all  of
his VK calls (VK2IA, VK6AA, VK8VJ, VK9AA, VK9AA/9) is  DK2BJ,  who  replaces

the year. [TNX K1XN and The Golist]

YI1IRQ ---> The genuine YI1IRQ, the  callsign  of  the  Iraq  Amateur  Radio
Society, has been back on the air since 14 November.  "The  last  legitimate
QSO made by YI1IRQ prior to that was in August 2008", Alan  5B4AHJ  reminds.
"In the intervening period, this call was pirated".

(F5DFN), Danilo Vegetti (I2VDX),  Antonio Pezzini (IZ5KBK), Frank H Scotland
