MARITIME DX FORUM ---> The Halifax  Amateur Radio Club (HARC) invites  DXers,
contesters and HF  enthusiasts to the  V Annual Maritime  DX Forum (MDF).  It
will be held  on 22 August  in Halifax, Nova  Scotia as part  of HARC's  75th
anniversary celebration Ham Fest (21-24 August). Please visit  www.harc75.org
for complete  details,  or contact  Scott  Wood, VE1QD  (ve1qd@rac.ca).  [TNX

TC0W ---> The TC0W team made  10,752 QSOs (56% CW and  44% SSB) during  their
7-11 June operation  from Kefken Island  (AS-159). Pictures,  log search  and
on-line   form    for    bureau   card    requests    can   be    found    at

VP6DX ---> A comprehensive report on the VP6DX QSLling status can be found on
the DXpedition's  website  (www.vp6dx.com).  The  press  release  covers  the
following areas:
- QSL card design
- QSL processing status
- Donors without callsigns in the database
- Instructions for donors who have made an on-line QSL request, but have  not
  received LOTW credit
- List of donors without callsigns as of 2008 June 16 Monday
Whilst the VP6DX bureau QSLs  will be normal  cards with colour  photographs,
the direct-mail "card" will be a  36-page booklet, containing over 80  colour
photos and maps. On 13 June more than 500 kg (1100 lb) of cards were  shipped
to the QSL processing team, and should arrive around the end of this week.
Everyone who requests a QSL will receive both a card and a LOTW confirmation,
but QSL requests are prioritized in groups:
- QSL requests for QSOs that match  the VP6DX log exactly have priority  over
  requests that require manual research,
- QSL requests submitted through  the Online QSL  Request System (OQRS)  have
  priority over requests received via postal mail,
- requests from donors have priority over requests from non-donors.
Please note that 1086 donors have not provided their callsigns, and their QSL
requests cannot be  processed. The list  of donors with  missing callsign  is
available on  the website;  if  you find  yourself  listed there,  send  your
callsign via the "Contact Us" menu option.

Other recently reported  Silent Keys include  Pietro M. De  Volpi Sr  (K3PD),
