FT5ZM DVD ---> The DVD of the 2014 FT5ZM DXpedition to Amsterdam  Island  is
now available: "this was a truly international DXpedition with 14  operators
from eight different countries, a seven-week  adventure  culminating  in  an
amazing 140,000 QSOs from the middle of the southern Indian Ocean".  Details
can be found at www.k4uee.com/dvd.

VP8SGI & VP8STI ---> "The fourteen members of the  VP8STI/VP8SGI  team  have
committed to paying $210,000 of  the  $425,000  needed  to  carry  out  this
DXpedition. To date,  we  have  raised  $315,000  which  includes  our  team
contribution; North America Clubs & Foundations have  provided  87%  of  our
support, while 12% comes from Europe and less than one  percent  from  Asia.
We still have a significant deficit  of  $110,000.  The  VP8STI/VP8SGI  team
needs  the  support  of  the  worldwide  DX  Community  to  help  make  this
DXpedition a success". The last major  operations  from  South  Georgia  and
South Sandwich Islands took place in 2002. Since that  time,  these  islands
have steadily climbed the most wanted list and are currently the  #3  (South
Sandwich)  and  #8  (South  Georgia)  most  wanted    DXCC    Entities.  The
VP8SGI/VP8STI team's goal is to conduct two 8-10 day DXpeditions to each  of
these island groups: "to effectively do that, we  need  your  assistance  no
matter what level of donation you  can  make.  We  encourage  you  to  visit
www.intrepid-dx.com/vp8 and donate via the PayPal link".

W4DXCC ---> Sponsored by the SouthEastern DX  and  Contesting  Organization,
Inc. (SEDCO), the 11th W4 DX and Contest Convention  will  be  held  at  the
MainStay Suites Conference  Center  in  Pigeon  Forge,  Tennessee  on  25-26
September. Complete details can be found at www.w4dxcc.com. [TNX K4SV]
