D20VB ---> According to first hand  information collected by Cezar  (VE3LYC),
Vlad (UA4WHX) "was never on AF-108 and  whoever spotted him like that made  a
rather bad joke". Vlad added that "he has  no plans at this time to  activate
any of the D2 IOTAs",  because travelling throught  the country is  extremely
difficult, the islands are much less safer than the mainland and the  terrain
is very rough. [TNX www.islandchaser.com]

though he cannot provide a copy of them. Carl  will be sending him a list  of
the "several hundred unanswered requests on  hand at N4AA", and hopefully  he
will be able to  confirm those old  contacts. "I will  answer these cards  as
soon as possible and to the best of my ability", Carl says. [TNX QRZ-DX]

manger, he himself will reply to  the many QSL cards that  await his for  his
return to Australia around mid 2007.  He is still  working at Davis  Station,
Antarctica and his current operating times on the amateur radio bands are 6-7
UTC and 10-16 UTC (weekdays) and 5 UTC onwards (weekends).

QSL YU6AO  --->  The  following  was published  on  the  DXCC  Dialog  Weblog
(http://www.arrl.org/blog/DXCC%20Dialog) on 11 October: "Reference our recent
comments about YU6AO credits [425DXN 805,  ed.], we have decided to  continue
crediting any YU6AO QSOs made on  or after July 4, 2006.  While we are  still
concerned that for  some reason  there are  apparent date  errors on  certain
YU6AO QSL cards,  we will  continue to  count these  credits pending  further
investigation. If you have received a YU6AO QSL card showing a date of July 4
or later which actually represents a QSO  made prior to July 4, 2006,  please
let us know in an email to dxcc@arrl.org". [Bill Moore, NC1L]
