INDEXA NEWS ---> "The officers of the International DX  Association,  INDEXA
(www.indexa.org), have agreed to send an additional donation  of  2,500  USD
to the Amsterdam Island, FT5ZM, DXpedition team. INDEXA's financial  support
for this  DXpedition  has  now  grown  to  10,000  USD.  Our  membership  of
worldwide DXers has been generous to us  this  year  with  donations.  Thus,
INDEXA felt further support to the FT5ZM team was appropriate".

K9W  --->  The  K9W  Wake  Atoll  Team  thanks  the  DX  community  for  the
outstanding response to The Forgotten 98 Commemorative DXpedition. K9W  made
53765 CW, 38700 SSB and 7562 digital QSOs. The  final  QSO  percentages  per
continent are NA 35.3%, AS 32.3%, EU 26.9%, OC 3.1%, SA 1.8%  and  AF  0.6%.
All of the QSOs have been uploaded to Club  Log,  and  "most,  if  not  all,
corrections  have  been  made".  Please  write  to  info[@]wake2013.org  for
possible problems with the ClubLog upload. The printed QSLs are  in  transit
to the QSL manager (AA4NN). The use of OQRS for direct and bureau  cards  is
highly recommended (see http://wake2013.org/pages/qsl.html). [TNX W8GEX]

QSL HP0INT ---> Vincent, F4BKV mailed about 50% of the direct cards for  the
Panama IOTA Tour on 12 December, the others will follow on the  23rd.  Those
letters will be sent from Hong Kong, he says; direct  requests  with  French
postage stamps on their SAEs will be processed in early January.

STORMY WEATHER: OH8X ---> Radio Arcala (OH8X) has lost  its  100m  (330  ft)
tall tower that supported 160m and 80m Yagis. The structure weighed 40  tons
(80,000 lbs) and did not survive recent storm Oskari's gusts  of  up  to  68
knots. "The mammoth structure collapsed peacefully, not hitting any  of  the
other six towers, not hurting people or damaging buildings", OH2BN  reports.
"It is suspected that automation designed to enable the array  to  find  its
most comfortable position in high winds somehow locked  up  and  caused  the
structure to corkscrew and crumble down on its on base".

STORMY WEATHER: SV2ASP/A ---> The Daily DX reports that  also  Monk  Apollo,
the only active station from Mount Athos, has  lost  all  of  his  antennas,
which "fell down in the big wind storm last week". Apollo is  currently  "in
Corinth, Greece for the olive harvest" and "does does not know when he  will
have the time to get something back up in the air".
