EN7P ---> Apparently there are problems in downloading the  QSOs  made  with
EN7P from the WWFF Log Search, Vladimir UT1PG reports. Paper QSL  cards  can
be requested direct (P.O.Box 21, Kovel-8, 45008, Ukraine) or via the  bureau
by sending your request by email to ut1pg[@]lrv.net.ua. [TNX UT1PG]

IARU NEWS ---> On 2 July 2015, voting was  completed  on  the  admission  of
Association Burundaise des Amateurs Radio  et  Television  (ABART)  to  IARU
membership. With 51 affirmative votes required for approval, there  were  67
votes in favour of and no votes in opposition to Proposal No. 253, which  is
therefore adopted.
IARU  Region  1  has  also  requested  that  the  International  Secretariat
resubmit a proposal for the  admission  of  Shoqata  e  Radio  Amatoreve  te
Kosoves (SHRAK). Two votes in favour of SHRAK being  admitted  to  the  IARU
were received shortly  after  the  voting  deadline.  Those  two  votes,  if
received before the  deadline,  would  have  been  sufficient  to  have  the
proposal  adopted.  Region  1  and  the   International    Secretariat  have
determined under the circumstances that submitting the proposal for  a  vote
of the Member-Societies a second time is  appropriate  (Proposal  No.  254).
The closing date for receipt by the International Secretariat of votes is  9
December 2015. Details can be found at http://www.iaru.org/news--events.

ICPO  BULLETIN  --->  VA3RJ's  useful  ICPO  (Islands,  Castles  &  Portable
Operations) Bulletin will soon be available only on Dave's website, in a  DX
Calendar format: http://www.qsl.net/va3rj/icpo.html. "It is time to hang  up
my hat and have some time to play radio, instead of writing about it",  Dave
says.

VP8SGI & VP8STI ---> The Intrepid DX Group announced on 15 July that all  of
their plans "are moving forward very well" and that they  are  "testing  and
re-testing our gear one last time before it goes into a container next  week
and makes its voyage to meet the RV Braveheart in New Zealand".  The  team's
goal is to conduct two 8-10 day DXpeditions to South Georgia and  the  South
Sandwich  Islands.  They  will  be  QRV  with  six  stations  on  all  bands
(including 6 and 60 metres); in order  to  increase  the  number  of  unique
callsigns, they will "select a band that is propagating for the  most  hours
of the day, and we will be  QRV  on  that  band  for  the  duration  of  our
activity". The  VP8STI/VP8SGI  team  still  has  a  significant  deficit  of
$110,000 and needs the support of the worldwide DX Community  to  help  them
make this project  a  success:  "we  encourage  you  to  visit  our  website
(www.intrepid-dx.com/vp8) and donate via the PayPal link".
