KP1    - On 22 October the KP1-5 Project [425DXN  1218]  reported  that  the
        U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service has notified that  they  will  be  the
        team to activate Navassa  Island  (NA-098)  in  January  2015.  The
        DXpedition will be a maximum of fourteen days; exact dates will  be
        determined by USFWS mission requirements  and  weather  windows.  A
        large group of experienced operators (AA7JV,  HA7RY,  K0IR,  K4UEE,
        K5AC, K9CT, N2TU, N4GRN, NA5U, NM1Y, VE7CT, W0GJ, W6IZT  and  WB9Z)
        will be active  as  K1N.  "For  safety  reasons  and  in  order  to
        maximize our time on the island and  on  the  air",  they  say,  "a
        helicopter operation is planned. Navassa is  over  100  miles  (160
        km) from the nearest helicopter staging point and as  many  as  ten
        round trips will be required  at  the  beginning  and  end  of  the
        operation. Obviously, this means that there will be  a  significant
        cost for activating this  #1  ranked  DXCC  Entity.  The  team  has
        committed to fund 50% of the total costs. We  are  hopeful  the  DX
        community at large will fund the remainder".  Check  http://kp1.us/
        for  more  details,  updates  and  information  on  how  you    may
        financially support this DXpedition. [TNX W0GJ]

OK     - The Czech Radio Club will operate special event station  OL90OK  on

VK     - To mark the 100th anniversary of the departure of the first  convoy
        of ships carrying Australian and New Zealand  troops  (later  known
        as ANZAC, Australian and New Zealand Army Corps) to  World  War  I,
        the Southern Electronics Group (VK6SR) will  be  active  on  160-10
        metres as VI6ANZAC from Albany,  Western  Australia  for  24  hours
        starting on 16 UTC on 31 October.
VK9L   - The VK9DLX team on Lord Howe  [425DXN  1220,  www.lordhowe2014.org]
        will participate in the CQ WW DX SSB Contest as  VK9LM.  This  will
        be a Multi-Multi entry on all six  contest  bands.  "Especially  on
        the low bands it may be possible that we will  not  always  find  a
        running frequency (especially  when  we  have  to  compete  against
        European stations)", they say, so "don't be shy to  contact  us  to
        ask for a QSY frequency on 160m, 80m or 40m". There will be  no  CW
        operation on the contest bands during the contest, and  there  will
        be no upload to Club Log  for  the  contest  log  as  long  as  the
        official log checking takes place.
VK0M   - DX-World.net reports that "unfortunately, due  to  health  issues",
        Rod VK6MH  "has  had  to  cancel  his  planned  trip  to  Macquarie
        Island". He was expected to  be  QRV  as  VK0MH  until  April  2015
        [425DXN 1221].

425 DX NEWS MAGAZINE --->  The September 2014 issue  is  now  available  for
download at www.425dxn.org/monthly/index.html. [TNX IZ3EBA]

CQ CONTESTS POLICY ---> On 17 October CQ announced that it would  no  longer
accept logs for any  contest  from  Crimean  stations  using  Russian-issued
callsigns. However,  "in  response  to  requests  from  a  large  number  of
contesters around the world", on 21 October CQ  reconsidered  its  decision.
"Since the country list for CQ contests is based on  a  combination  of  the
Worked All Europe (WAE) and ARRL  DXCC  lists,  and  the  ARRL  has  already
adopted a policy  regarding  Crimean  stations  in  its  award  and  contest
programs, we will amend our policy to be consistent  with  the  ARRL's  DXCC
policy. Therefore, the listings of Crimean stations submitting logs  for  CQ
contests will be based on the call sign under which they have  operated.  If
they used Russian-issued calls in the contest, they  will  be  listed  under
Russia; if they used Ukrainian-issued calls in the  contest,  they  will  be
listed under Ukraine. This change reflects  not  only  the  desire  of  many
contesters around the world, but also of a large majority of members of  the
CQ World Wide DX Contest Committee".

DXCC NEWS ---> ZS8A (Marion Island  2013-14)  has  been  approved  for  DXCC
credit. If you have had a card rejected  in  a  recent  application,  please
contact the ARRL DXCC Desk (dxccadmin[@]arrl.org) to be placed on  the  list
for an update to your record. [TNX ARRL]

IOTA NEWS: IOTA AND CRIMEA ---> IOTA Management has decided that, given  the
unresolved political situation in Crimea,  it  has  no  course  open  to  it
except, for a period initially  of  one  year,  to  freeze  certain  actions
connected with Crimea that it would normally take in the routine  management
of the IOTA programme. This means that it will not accept  or  issue  credit
for  EU-180  operations  taking  place  after  17  March  2014  that  use  a
non-Ukrainian  callsign,  or  accede  to  any  requests    from    programme
participants for update of their  records  or  changes  of  callsign  and/or
checkpoint that involve a change of DXCC entity. The Committee  will  review
the situation after one year in the light of developments.  IOTA  Management
regrets taking this action but it accords with practice  adopted  elsewhere.

IOTA NEWS: NEW  GROUP  NUMBERS  CONFIRMED  --->  Following  the  receipt  of
validation material several new IOTA group numbers have been confirmed  with
the result that credits can be given for the operations in brackets:  AS-200
(several JA5 stations), AS-201 (TA0/DF8DX), EU-191  (YP0F),  NA-247  (PJ7PK)
and OC-294 (VK6ISL). [TNX G3KMA]

IOTA NEWS: WITHDRAWAL OF AN-014 ---> Berkner  Island,  the  sole  qualifying
island of AN-014, has been on the IOTA list since  the  very  start  of  the
IOTA Programme. It was regularly shown on maps as  a  large  island,  albeit
covered with a layer of very thick ice, separating the Ronne Ice Shelf  from
the Filchner-Ronne Ice Shelf. Some contacts were made by LU1ZX from the  old
General Belgrano III Base on the island more than 30 years  ago  -  no  more
than a handful are credited on the IOTA database. The remote possibility  of
a second operation that might be mounted at huge  expense  has  caused  IOTA
Management to review the retention of Berkner Island on the list. In  recent
years there have been authentic reports from the scientific  community  that
Berkner Island is an ice-rise and that no part of  the  land-mass  under  it
would be above water if there were no  ice.  This  seems  to  have  gathered
credence  with  map-makers  as  the  considered  view  of  the    scientific
community. Faced with information that confirms that the ice-rise  does  not
meet IOTA's qualification rules as  a  valid  island  IOTA  Management  have
taken the decision to withdraw AN-014 from  the  IOTA  list  with  immediate
effect before any further operation takes place. The  few  existing  credits
will be withdrawn no later than 1 January 2015. [TNX G3KMA]

THE P5/K6VVA QUEST ---> "In just a few months  will  begin  Year  #9  of  my
quest for approval to operate from P5", Rick K6VVA says.  "There  have  been
many, MANY different proposals made to the D.P.R.K. Authorities  during  the
past 8 Years. Recently, my primary Advocate and Envoy to  P5  has  left  the
NGO to a new position  with  a  different  organization  not  involved  with
Humanitarian work in the D.P.R.K. I am pursuing alternative new pathways  to
success in this project to be able  to  fulfill  the  intended  Humanitarian
goal, and the objective  to  provide  an  equal  opportunity  for  all  DXCC
Program participants in need of ONE CW QSO credit with  North  Korea".  Read

W1AW WAS ---> Look for ARRL Centennial  stations  W1AW/7  from  Wyoming  and
W1AW/1 from Massachusetts to be on the air  starting  at  00.00  UTC  on  29
October until 23.59 UTC on 4 November. In addition, W1AW/KP2  also  will  be
active from  the  US  Virgin  Islands.  Complete  information  on  the  ARRL
Centennial QSO Party can be found at www.arrl.org/centennial-qso-party.
