CQ WW DX CONTEST ---> The rules have been completely rewritten for 2013  and
can be found at www.cqww.com/rules.htm - read carefully!

K6VVA/KL7 ---> Rick announced he was making an attempt (the third  one!)  at
operating from Barter Island (NA-050) on 8-10 July [425DXN  1157].  However,
"due to increased unexpected solar  disturbances,  Auroral  Oval,  potential
NA-050  fog  and  now  the  likelihood  of  departure  delays    and  missed
connections due to the re-routing of many plane  flights  down  to  the  San
Jose Airport resulting from  the  unfortunate  plane  crash  at  nearby  SFO
airport, this trip is being postponed again.  Plans  are  to  re-schedule  a
fourth attempt at NA-050 in the next  45  days,  but  I  will  only  make  a
posting just before boarding the first plane". [TNX K6VVA]

P5 PROJECT ---> The BBC has interviewed  Paul  Ewing,  N6PSE  regarding  the
efforts  of  the  Intrepid DX  Group to  operate  from  DPRK (North  Korea):

stations (AA3K, AD1T, AK1W, K1BG, K1GQ, K1RX, K1ZD, K6ND, K9ES, KE1J,  N1JD,
N1SV, N2NT, N3AD, NB1N, NI1L, NJ1F, W1CLA, W1EQ,  W1HH,  W1MA,  W1SJ,  W1UE,

In order to make  sure  all  of  the  competitor  stations  are  equal,  the
WRTC2014 organizers will compare the signals of the test stations  by  using
the Reverse Beacon Network. All of the 25 stations will be on CW on  certain
bands and times with their beams in a specific direction:  the  schedule  is
at http://www.wrtc2014.org/station-test-schedule-for-signal-testing/
