        This DXpedition will  consist  of  two  separate  operations,  both
        using the same callsign. Initially a small team will be  active  on
        3-4 bands CW and  SSB  from  Campbell  Bay,  Great  Nicobar  Island
        "anytime from 4 to 7 November  depending  on  the  arrival  of  the

        (Andamans) are from 16 until 30 November. The Andaman  and  Nicobar
        Islands form one single DXCC Entity, but IOTA wise they  count  for
        two separate groups: AS-001 for the Andamans, and  AS-033  for  the
        very  rare  Nicobars.  Bookmark    for    further

MY DX SUMMIT ---> "DX Summit is modernized for a second time around, and  MY
DX SUMMIT will now go online today [31 October, ed.] for  limited  dedicated
pre-user testing. We will welcome some 200 pre-users  who  are  prepared  to
try it out and provide immediate feedback to the development team.  The  aim
of this exercise is to serve as the final debug phase and  to  enhance  user
experience to maximum satisfaction before tens of  thousands  suddenly  fire
their browsers to help them in their future DX hunt. We  ask  you  if  would
you like to be one of the few to have this  experience  today?  If  you  say
'yes', please kindly be prepared not only to test but to  provide  a  timely
response. Send a note  to  radioarcala[@]  and  we  will  give  you
guidance to get started".
