5Z4/RW1AU ---> Valery, 5Z4/RW1AU, is now QRT from Nairobi, and is back  home
in St. Petersburg. His work assignment spanned almost one year, from  August
2008 through June 2009. During that period, Val used the 5Z4RS club  station
in Nairobi as time allowed between  work  responsibilities  to  make  almost
12,000 QSOs on 40-10 metres, using  both  CW  &  SSB.  His  logs  have  been
uploaded to LoTW. Paper QSL to either RW1AU (direct  and  bureau)  or  K5XK.

E51SC ---> The Daily DX reports that Nigel, E51SC (G4KIU) has had  to  leave
Rarotonga, South Cook Islands [425DXN 943] and return to England for  family
reasons. All of the QSOs (about 600) he  made  during  his  stay  have  been
uploaded to LoTW.

HV5PUL ---> A video of the early June activity from HV5PUL is  available  at
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wuRbBc4GyP0 [TNX IZ2LSC]

INTERNATIONAL LIGHTHOUSE LIGHTSHIP  WEEK  --->  The  highly  popular  annual
Lighthouse Weekend has been extended to a full week, including two  on-going
activities: the ILLW Special Event (1-9  August)  and  the  ILLW  QSO  Party
Contest  (1-2  and  8-9  August).  Complete  information  can  be  found  at

LOGS ---> The TZ6EI web  page  (http://www.w0sd.com/mali/mali.htm)  now  has
post DXpedition information  (statistics,  distances,  pictures,  etc.),  as
well as the link to the on-line logs (6 metres only). This was  primarily  a
6m DXpedition (546 unique calls), but TZ6EI also  worked  on  the  HF  bands
(over 1000 uniques on RTTY). [TNX W0SD]

QSL EK6LP ---> Antonello, IK2DUW reports that effective  1  July  he  is  no
longer the QSL manager for EK6LP. He can still confirm QSOs made through  30
June 2009; cards for contacts made after that date should be sent direct  to
Aram R. Manvelyan, P.O. Box 47, 3102 Gyumri, Armenia.

QSL ST2R ---> Those who still need a card for ST2R (January-April 2007)  can
request it by e-mail  (s57dx@yahoo.com)  and  get  it  through  the  bureau.
Direct cards should be sent to Slavko Celarc, Ob Igriscu  8,  1360  Vrhnika,
Slovenia (return postage is USD 2 ore EUR 1). [TNX S57DX]
