world to work as many stations as possible on  the  10m  band.  This  year's
event will be held on  8-9  December.  Complete  details  can  be  found  at

team reported on 27 November. "Please note that these logs  do  not  contain
corrections. We will deal with the correction requests during the  next  two

QSL NH8S ---> "Our QSL manager (Joe, AA4NN) has processed all  QSL  requests

November. The sailing vessel "Evohe" with the ZL9HR team departed Bluff,  on
the southern coast of New Zealand's South Island, on the  26th  around  noon
local time. However, bad weather forced the team to shelter in  the  lee  of
Stewart Island and wait for conditions to improve. They  expected  to  leave
for Campbell Island on 29 November in the morning  and  hopefully  to  reach
their destination on 1 December. MM0NDX, the EU Pilot station, reports  that
they will not be able to extend their stay on the island beyond 9  December.
