425 DX NEWS MAGAZINE ---> The  October  2014  issue  is  now  available  for

Norwegian Post and Telecommunications Authority) from Bouvet Island for  two

FT4TA ---> The team went QRT  from  Tromelin  Island  on  01:27  UTC  on  10
November. Club Log shows a grand total of 71,463 QSOs  with  18,410  (25,8%)
unique calls. Breakdowns by Band/Mode and by Continent,  as  well  as  other
statistics, can be  found  at  https://secure.clublog.org/charts/?c=FT4TA#r;
the OQRS is up and running. "We  are  still  amazed  by  the  huge  pileups.
Despite all team members having already experience from  other  most  wanted
entities, none of us had ever had to face such an incredible demand",  F5UFX
wrote in his final update on  12  November.  "Our  objectives  were  clearly
announced and supported by the community and we believe we had achieve  most
of them. In addition, we were happy to surprise most  of  you  by  providing
immediate LoTW confirmation during our activity". Read  the  entire  release

IOTA NEWS: QSLING VIA YB9BU ---> "IOTA Management has received a  number  of
complaints that QSL card requests sent to Kadek, YB9BU  in  accordance  with
his QSLing instructions on QRZ.com have not received a reply  and  similarly
that email enquiries are not being answered. Emails from  the  IOTA  Manager
and mutual friends have also gone unanswered. In the  circumstances  it  can
only be assumed that there is an interruption in  the  QSL  manager  service
for all the many operations for which YB9BU acts as QSL manager  and  people
would be well advised not to send further cards. We  would  also  advise  YB
island operators for whom YB9BU acts or normally acts  as  manager  to  make
other  arrangements  to  ensure  satisfactory  QSLing.  Acceptance  by  IOTA
Management of further IOTA operations by YB9BU must be regarded as  on  hold
until and unless the matter is resolved". [G3KMA, 11 November 2014]

CQWW SSB Contest as VK9LM, we end up with over 128,000 QSOs  in  our  logs",
the team said on 12 November. "More detailed statistics for  both  callsigns
when we merge and clean the logs and upload them to Clublog.  We  know  that
still some VK9DLX QSOs are missing  in  Clublog  right  now".  The  OQRS  is
online to apply for either VK9DLX and VK9LM cards  (direct  an  bureau):  it
