425 DX NEWS MAGAZINE ---> The  latest issue (June 2006)  is now available  at
http://www.425dxn.org/monthly/. Articles  and  pictures  should  be  sent  to
Nicola Baldresca, IZ3EBA (iz3eba@ari.it).

IOTA CONTEST LOGGER ---> The 14th IOTA Contest takes place on 29-30 July. SDI
by Paul O'Kane, EI5DI is the only contest logger dedicated to this event,  it
offers many  unique  features  and  it  is  recommended  for  single-operator
entrants. SDI runs on any Windows PC, and is free from www.ei5di.com  (should
you have any problems, just ask sd-user@contesting.com).

PIRATES ---> Emanuela, IZ2ELV reports he is receiving cards for ST/IZ2ELV  (a
pirate) and TT1ENI (ditto). Save your time and money; she is the QSL  manager
only for her own operations as 8Q7LY (2002).

WRTC 2006  MONITORING SYSTEM  ---> You  can watch  the   2006  Amateur  Radio
Olympics live at  your computer -  just click  www.hagasoft.com! The  Contest
Club Finland (CCF)  team are in  Brazil to  run the  system. Each  of the  47
competing teams will release their scores at hourly intervals and the ranking
will appear on your computer screen along with historical data. The  referees
at each station use a Nokia sponsored 6301i cell phone and its text messaging
(SMS) function to get the scores to  a dedicated server. From the server  the
scores then get processed and  transferred to another  SQL Server located  in
California, USA.
Adding to the Scoreboard, another technology  house (Elisa Communications  of
Finland) with their team at OH2AQ has moved in to provide you with  continued
access  to  all  WRTC-related  DX  Summit  spots  on  a  specific  Web  site:
Several prizes are available to IARU  HF World Championship participants  who
send a Cabrillo log  to logs@wrtc2006.com or  iaruhf@iaru.org within 6  hours
after the  contest.  For  the  details  see  WRTC  Press  Release  054/06  at

YU6AO ---> The  Daily DX  reports that  "it is  now been  confirmed that  the
station producing highest number of Montenegrin QSOs with the callsign  YU6AO
is actually a VHF only license and has been operated by several Serbian hams.
Upgrading of the license to HF  privileges is pending and suggests that  QSOs
made up to that point will be very questionable for DXCC purposes".
