KL     - On 16 July the  KL7DX  expedition  to  Chuginadak  Island  (NA-234)
         [425DXN 881] was "under feasibility review". Mount Okmok  on  Umnak
         Island, halfway between Dutch Harbour  (Unalaska)  and  Chuginadak,
         erupted unexpectedly on 12  July,  sending  a  plume  of  ash  over
         9-10,000 metres  into  the  air.  Moreover,  Mount  Cleveland,  the
         volcano that forms  the  western  half  of  Chuginadak  Island,  is
         "exhibiting signs of elevated unrest". The  team  was  expected  to
         fly from Seattle to Anchorage and then to Dutch Harbor, where  they
         would set sail  on  the  "Miss  Alyssa"  to  Chuginadak.  Hopefully

JW/OH2FFP ---> Mika, OH2FFP  was  expected  to  be  stationed  at  Kinnvika,
Nordaustlandet Island (EU-063) for twenty days [425DXN  895],  but  sea  ice
prevented the team from  reaching  the  island.  The  activities  have  been
postponed until next year, and Mika is returning home. [TNX F5PFP]

PIRATE ---> Bobby, N5BJ is still being pirated, as  he  is  still  receiving
QSL cards for contacts made on 160 metres CW. Please note that  the  genuine
N5BJ works neither 160m nor CW.

QSL TX7LX ---> Georg, DK7LX is receiving direct cards for TX7LX (his  recent
activity form Mayotte, http://www.dk7lx.mayotte.2008.ms/) with old  IRCs  or
insufficient return postage.  These  requests  will  be  processed  via  the
bureau. Please note that, because of the high postal  rates  in  Germany,  2
USD are needed for  destinations  in  Europe,  and  3  USD  are  needed  for
destinations outside Europe, while 1 new IRC  is  all  right  for  both.  To
speed up the QSLling process,  bureau  cards  can  be  requested  by  e-mail
(dk7lx[at]web.de). [TNX DK7LX]

QSL VIA W2FB ---> Steve, W2FB says he has received the logs from Dr  Khalid,
AP2DKH and is now able to issue the QSL cards (direct preferred, but  bureau
cards will be accepted as well).

+  SILENT  KEYS  +  Recently  reported  Silent  Keys  include   Dale  Newton
Richardson, Jr. (AA5XE), Tom Higginson (GW3AHN) and Rodrique Gagnon (VE2NN).
