logs that he has been able to find for 5B4/G0LII, 5B4AHA, C4C,  G0LII,  G7G,
G8G, M0ADU, MX0ADU and ZD8LII. Logsearches for these calls are available  on
www.g3swh.org.uk. The late Steve Hodgson, ZC4LI was not an RSGB member,  and
paper QSLs are only available direct (by traditional mail or  via  the  OQRS
facility on Phil's website). "I am still working  on  the  log  for  ZC4LI",
Phil says, "as it consists of several hundred individual files in a  variety
of different formats and it is taking a lot of  time  to  convert  it  to  a
single format. It should be available in a few weeks time". [TNX G3SWH]

VK5CE IOTA ACTIVITY  FOR  2014  --->  "Thoughts  are  now  turning  to  2014
activity", Craig VK5CE says. "Basically I should be able to do in 2014  what
I have done in 2013 - namely a rare, remote  and  isolated  IOTA  by  myself
(similar to this year's OC-255) and  a  less  rare  but  still  wanted  IOTA
packaged into a DXpedition/family vacation (similar to this year's  OC-261).
It all depends on individual and club sponsorship to offset the  costs.  I'm
letting people be involved  in  the  decision  making  process  by  inviting
everyone to visit http://vkiota.blogspot.com.au/"

YW5RYL ---> The 7-10 November activity  from  Los  Roques  (SA-035)  [425DXN
