QSL IV3OWC ---> Claudio has been  informed that quite a  few cards are  being
returned to sender with "Silent Key" stamped on them. Claudio is alive and in
good health, but please note that since he  has no access to the QSL  bureau,
cards for IV3OWC, ST2CF (2003) and  9E1C (Ethiopia 1999-2000) should be  sent
direct only to  Claudio Fabbro, Via  Casale Coloset  3, 33030  Moruzzo -  UD,

QSL FT5ZH ---> The FT5ZH (November-December  1998) logs will  be closed on  1
January 2006. Those who still need  a card should  send their request  direct
only to F6KDF: Radio Club de la  Gendarmerie, 292 Route de Genas, 69677  Bron
Cedex, France. [TNX F6KDF]

QSL VIA YB9BU ---> Kadek would like to remind once more that when  requesting
a direct card from him, IRCs are far better than green stamps, as the  latter
might get "lost".

+ SILENT  KEY +  The DX  community mourns  the passing  of Hugh  A.  Cassidy,
WA6AUD, who left us on 9 September at 88 years of age. Quoting Jarmo Jaakola,
OH2BN, The Daily  DX remembers  Cass as  "a truly  towering figure  in DX,  a
source of great inspiration, a literary  genius who had the unique talent  to
express in words some of our innermost feelings, who was capable of  touching
the human  soul with  his pen,  with a  message that  transcended  geographic
boundaries, language barriers". Give a look to a few issues of The West Coast
DX Bulletin, of which Cass was the editor for eleven years, and read a few of
his    delightful     DX     Stories    on     K2CD's     web     site     at
