The Andaman Islands (VU4MY and VU4RG) and the  Lakshadweep  Islands  (VU7NRO
and VU7SJ) will  be  activated  again  this  year by  teams  of  foreign and
national operators as part of the  celebrations for  the  Silver Jubilee  of
the National Institute of Amateur Radio  (NIAR)  [425DXN 883].
"This is the third year in a row that the Government of  India  extends  its
full  support  to foreign and Indian radio amateurs to operate their Amateur
Radio stations  from  remote Islands of  Andamans and Lakshadweep", S. Suri,
VU2MY says. "The simultaneous Amateur  Radio activity from these two islands
is a path breaking  achievement for NIAR during the year of Silver Jubilee".

On June 30, 2008, the  Caribbean  National  Wildlife Refuge office in Puerto
Rico  sent  a letter to  persons that had previously made inquiries about an
Amateur  Radio operation from  Desecheo.  They  announced  their decision to
allow one  group  to  activate  the  island and invited proposals that  must
adhere to strict guidelines and criteria. Applicants had 45 days to  prepare
and submit their proposals.
CNWR received seven written proposals. A panel  of three Fish  and  Wildlife
Service  employees,  from  areas within the Service outside of the Caribbean
refuge, spent September 24 & 25 reviewing and evaluating the proposals.  The
selection  criteria  used  were  those  outlined  in the proposal invitation
letter.  Points  were  awarded  for  how well criteria  were  addressed  for
thoroughness and documentation.
The  proposal  with  the  highest  ranking was submitted by team leaders Dr.
Glenn Johnson, W0GJ,  and Bob Allphin, K4UEE.  Their plan involves a team of
fifteen operators for a 14-day operation.
USFWS  has not announced the actual dates  of  the  operation yet,  but  the
DXpedition  is expected to take place between January 15, 2009 and March 30,
2009. A Special Use Permit (SUP) will be issued as per USFWS regulations. We
expect that  the  DXpedition team and Dxers worldwide will have a minimum of
30 days notice. [TNX K4UEE]

meeting  the  IARU  Administrative  Council,  noting  that  "poor  operating
behavior adversely affects the enjoyment of all radio amateurs and does  not
enhance the reputation of the Amateur Radio Services",  resolved  "that  all
radio  amateurs  be  encouraged  to  operate  to  the   highest   levels  of
proficiency, with proper consideration for others using  the  amateur  radio
bands" and that "the necessary effort be made by member-societies  to  teach
newcomers  and  others  correct  operating  behavior".  IARU  AC   therefore
"endorses and recommends the principles set out in the booklet  'Ethics  and
Operating Procedures for the Radio Amateur' by  John  Devoldere,  ON4UN  and
Marc Demeuleneere, ON4WW, and encourages each IARU Region to  consider  this
booklet, with a view to adopting it, including any Regional variations  that
might be felt appropriate".
