- RI0QV/p (on 18 September from AS-029)
- RI1OV (from "various islands in the White and Barents Sea")
- RI1PV (on 31 August from EU-085)
Go to and follow the  ship's  course.
QSL for all callsigns via UA4WHX,  see  qrz.com  for  instructions.  Updates
will appear under each callsign on qrz.com and on DX-World.net.

TQSL 2.1.1 ---> A new release of TQSL (the  application  used  to  digitally
sign and upload QSOs to LoTW, and to manage the  Callsign  Certificates)  is
now available. TQSL 2.1.1 has corrections  for  several  defects  that  were
found in TQSL 2.0 as well as  enhancements  to  improve  usability.  On  all
three supported platforms (Windows, MacOS and Linux), installing TQSL  2.1.1
will replace older versions of Trusted QSL while  preserving  your  Callsign
Certificates, Station Locations, and  preferences.  Complete  release  notes
can be found at http://www.rickmurphy.net/lotw/. TQSL 2.1.1 will be  offered
upon startup of TQSL, or if you use the "Check for Updates" feature. It  can
also be downloaded from http://www.arrl.org/tqsl-download. [TNX K1MU]

VP8SGI & VP8STI ---> When the voyage starts, it will be possible  to  follow
the  progress  in  real  time  on  a  map  on   the    DXpedition's  website
(www.intrepid-dx.com/vp8). The team will depart the Falkland  Islands  on  9
January; after undergoing a safety and biodiversity briefing at King  Edward
Point (South Georgia), they  expect  to  arrive  at  Southern  Thule  (South
Sandwich Islands) on 17 January, depending on weather  and  sea  conditions.
They plan to be active as VP8STI for ten days; then they  will  voyage  back
to South Georgia and be active as VP8SGI starting on or  around  1  February
again for ten days. "Our main priority is to make  a  great  impact  to  the
need for South Sandwich contacts", they say,  "and  we  will  sacrifice  our
time at South Georgia to ensure that we  make  that  impact".  Finally,  the
team will return to the Falklands on 14  February,  and  be  QRV  as  VP8IDX
until the 20th.
Donations are still gratefully accepted, and all donors of $25 or more  will
receive an early LoTW upload. The organizers are "seeking more support  from
the many DX Clubs of North America, Canada, Mexico,  South  America,  Europe
and Asia that have yet to make a donation. We encourage  you  to  visit  our
website and donate via the PayPal link". [TNX N6PSE]
