IOTA 50TH ANNIVERSARY MARATHON ---> The 50th Anniversary Marathon starts  on
1 January 2012 [425DXN 1042]. For  a  two-year  period  (from  00.00  UTC  1
January 2012 until 23.59 UTC 31 December 2013), IOTA chasers are  encouraged
to contact as many different IOTA groups as possible,  and  IOTA  activators
to play their part by operating  from  as  many  groups  as  possible,  with
special emphasis on the  less-frequently  activated  ones.  As  participants
will need the island name, not just  the  IOTA  reference  number,  for  the
island station worked, those who post spots on the clusters  are  encouraged
to include the island name in their postings where there is  more  than  one
IOTA group possibility. Full  details  of  the  Marathon  are  available  on
www.rsgbiota.org.

NOT THE MANAGER ---> Al, VE1AL has received  two  cards  for  contacts  made
with 3V8S during the CQ WW DX CW Contest 2009. "I  am  not  and  never  have
been the QSL manager for this operation", Al says, and adds: "also, I  still
receive cards for ZK2DD and VA1S. I have the logs for  the  ZK2DD  operation
for only July 1979. If the call was re-issued, I cannot help. The VA1S  logs
are no longer available. I won't return the QSLs to the senders  because  of
new, onerous, charges by RAC for membership and use of its outgoing bureau".

ON5NT ---> Ghis reports that as of 20 December his new mailing  address  is:
Ghis Penny, P.O.Box 6, 9700 Oudenaarde, Belgium (mail sent to  his  old  POB
93 will be forwarded). The operations  Ghis  is  the  QSL  manager  for  are
listed on qrz.com

+ SILENT KEYS +  Recently  reported  Silent  Keys  include  Walter  Schreuer
(K1YZW), Pat Parrish (K4YR), Michael W. Smith (N8GUZ),  Aleksandr  V.  Rybak
(UT0UA), Larry Amodeo (W2AX) and Zoran Levkov (Z30V).
