425 DX NEWS MAGAZINE ---> The latest issue (July 2009) is now  available  at
http://www.425dxn.org/monthly/index.html. Articles and  pictures  should  be
sent to Nicola Baldresca, IZ3EBA.

DXCC NEWS ---> ZS8T (Prince Edward & Marion Island,  operated  by  ZS6GCM  )
and 7O1YGF (Yemen, 16-26 April 2000) have been approved for DXCC credit.  As
for 7O1YGF, this is the official release from Bill Moore, NC1L:
"After  reviewing  recently-received  information  regarding    the   7O1YGF
operation, and after additional dialogue with a leader  of  the  DXpedition,
the DXCC desk has approved this operation.
Considering the length of time that has passed since this operation, we  ask
that DXCC participants who would like to claim credit for 7O1YGF follow  the
options below:
* Send the 7O1YGF card ONLY to DXCC  with  a  SASE,  or  return  postage  if
outside the US; DXCC will process  the  card  and  applicants  will  not  be
charged a submission fee. 7O1YGF cards included with  other  cards  will  be
handled as part of a normal submission.
* Bring the card to a DXCC Card Checker. The card checker will  forward  the
confirmation to the DXCC desk  for  processing.  Again,  there  will  be  no
submission fee if this is a single-card submission. You  must  fill  out  an
application form, however.
In all other cases applicants can include their QSL  card  with  their  next
submission, and it will be handled normally. We will work  with  the  7O1YGF
team to use Logbook of the World if possible.
Remember, the cutoff date for the 2009 DXCC Annual listing  and  Honor  Roll
list is December 31, 2009. We encourage applicants  to  handle  this  sooner
rather than wait until the last minute".

30 METRES ---> The 30 Meter Multi Mode Weekend will be held on 22-23  August
to promote experimenting and using different digital  modes  on  that  band.
Information can be  found  on  the  30  Meter  Digital  Group's  website  at
http://30mdg.net/Events.html [TNX F5NQL]

QSL 7O1YGF ---> Those who still need a paper QSL card for  7O1YGF  can  send
their request to DJ3XD (he was the original QSL manager  for  CW  QSOs,  but
now he will handle SSB and RTTY as  well).  The  logs  are  expected  to  be
uploaded to LoTW within a couple of weeks' time. [TNX The Daily DX]

QSL ZK2V ---> "We are in the process of finalizing the QSL design  for  ZK2V
and expect to have cards in hand in about 6 weeks", N3SL  says.  "Please  be
patient and do not re-QSL".
