FT5XO ---> James, 9V1YC reports that  the "FT5XO Kerguelen" DVD (54  minutes)
is     finished;     purchase     information     can     be     found     at

NA-178 --->  Rick  Hilding, K6VVA  has  been working  on  activation  of  the
Farallon Islands (NA-178) for a year and a half,  and now he says there is  a
possibility of  being QRV  sometime in  January or  early February  2006.  "A
'Cooperative Work Agreement'  where significant contribution  is made to  the
FWS operations on South East Farallon  Island is the only  way NA-178 can  be
activated", he says. Rick (na178@k6vva.com) and the other operators  involved
in this effort "need serious sponsors to make this happen", and would like to
have "an idea of what support  may be forthcoming  from the IOTA  Community".
Updates will  be  posted on  http://www.k6vva.com/iota/na178/index.html;  for
background information on Rick's effort, please visit www.president.com

PIRATE ---> 7X2PD requesting QSL via  F8IXZ is a pirate,  save your time  and
money on  this one.  Jean-Marc, F8IXZ  can confirm  only contacts  made  with

QSL 9J2BO ---> Mike, G3TEV is not in actual possession of 9J2BO's logs.  Mike
can only confirm cards  during his daily  skeds with 9J2BO,  and due to  poor
propagation, he is finding it difficult to deal with large quantities of  QSL
cards sent via the bureau. "Obviously I will endeavour to deal with any cards
that I do receive from the bureau", he says, but for the time being Mike asks
stations "to only send cards direct or by e-mail until further notice".

QSL UK8OAH ---> Paolo, IK2QPR reports  he is the new  QSL manager for  UK8OAH
(Uzbekistan), who operates mainly on 80  and 160 metres.  QSL to Paolo  Fava,
Via Bertani 8, 46100 Mantova - MN, Italy.

QSL VIA  UA4WHX --->  Vladimir Bukov,  UA4WHX (currently  5H3VMB on  Zanzibar
Island, Tanzania)  reports that  all direct  requests received  for his  past
operation in the Pacific have been answered, while bureau requests are  being
processed and answered right now. If  you think that something may have  gone
wrong with  your  direct card,  please  e-mail Vlad  (ua4whx@udm.ru)  or  his
manager (ua4whxaa@udm.ru). Vlad's  Africa operations will  be QSLed when  the
trip is over.
