XF4    - Pepe, XE1J reports that the XF4  operators landed on Clarion  Island
         (NA-115) around 5 UTC on 21 November. The trip between the Navy ship
         and the beach was very difficult, and the team lost several runs  of
         coax. They  had to  fight against  the wind  and the  darkness,  but
         eventually, around 1  a.m. local  time (6  UTC), they  were able  to
         install one antenna.  However, after several  CQs and  no QSOs,  the
         Mexican Navy ordered the operators  back to the  ship. The team  now
         expects to  reach  Socorro  Island (NA-030)  around  15  UTC  on  24
         November.  Another  attempt  at  operating  from  Clarion  might  be
         possibile when the next ship makes the same trip to supply food  and
         fuel  to  the   islands.  Bookmark  http://www.6e4lm.xedx.org/   for
