by LA5IIA, JR3EDE and JJ2RCJ. QSL  via HB9BOU, direct  (Herbert Aeby, Rte  du
Moulin 1, CH 1782 Belfaux, Switzerland) or bureau.

NOT THE MANAGER ---> Wayne, W4MPY is not the QSL manager for any station.  He
gets a  number  of cards  each  bureau mailing  for  stations he  has  simply
*printed* QSL cards for  (apparently the confusion  comes from the  rpinetr's
credit, "QSLman - W4MPY"). "In the past, I have forwarded them at my  expense
to the customers", he says, "but will no longer be doing that". [TNX W4MPY]

PSK63 QSO PARTY ---> The EPC PSK63  QSO Party, sponsored by the European  PSK
Club [425DXN 789], will be held  on 19 November (24 hours). Full  information
can be found at http://www.eu.srars.org

QSL 3Y0X ---> All direct cards  for 3Y0X, XR9A and  CE0Z received through  16
September have been  processed and mailed  (52,342 QSOs for  all three  calls
totalled    together).    Further    information    can    be    found     at

QSL R1MVI ---> Roman, RX3RC is  the new QSL manager  for the 10-12  September
2004 R1MVI  operation. QSL  direct (Roman  A. Novikov,  P.O. Box  21,  392000
Tambov, Russia) or bureau. [TNX RX3RC]

QSL WRTC 2006 ---> The QSL cards for  the WRTC 2006 stations are printed  and
ready to be mailed. The QSL  manager is PP5VB, direct (Vantuil Barbosa  Dias,
P.O. Box 13, Imbituba, SC 88780-000, Brazil) or bureau. [TNX PY5EG]

QSL YX0A & YX0LIX ---> Steve, KU9C reports he has printed most of the labels,
but is still waiting for the cards to  arrive from the printer. He has  still
to do a number of log searches for the gaps in  the logs, and as soon as  the
DX team provides them he will start that process. Please be patient, as  "the
situation is a bit out of my control", he says.

YX5IOTA ---> Lighthouse chasers please note  that the 26 September-1  October
YX5IOTA operation from La Tortuga (SA-044)  [425DXN 798] will also count  for
Cayo Harradure lighthouse (ARLHS VEN-007). QSL via IT9DAA. [TNX IT9DAA]
