FT4TA ---> The Tromelin Island 2014  video  is  now  available  on  YouTube:
https://youtu.be/D-ig1VU5Jxk. This is in addition to the book, which can  be
read online at http://blur.by/1KGFCIT (in French) and http://blur.by/1LziqfS
(English version). [TNX F5NQL]

OCEANIA DX CONTEST ---> The Oceania DX Contest will be held on 160, 80,  40,
20, 15 and 10 metres SSB on 3-4 October and CW on 10-11 October, from 8  UTC
on Saturday to 8 UTC on Sunday. Oceania region  stations  (VK,  ZL,  Pacific
Islands and other locations within the IARU "Worked All Continents"  Oceania
boundary) can work anyone  anywhere,  non-Oceania  stations  can  only  work
Oceania stations. Complete information at www.oceaniadxcontest.com.

RSGB IOTA WEBSITE BREACH ---> At 04:48 UTC on  27  September,  an  automatic
bot gained access to the IOTA website database and was  able  to  exploit  a
bug in the IOTA code in order to reset the password for every  user  on  the
site. This is why you might not have been able to log into the  site.  There
is no sign in the system logs that any data was read or that  personal  data
was compromised. Once the IT team was aware of the issue,  they  immediately
took  the  database  offline  for  analysis  and  corrected  the  bug.  User
passwords are stored in a hashed format in the database, not in plain  text.
In accordance with best practice, however, we'd like to encourage all  users
of the IOTA website to change their passwords.  Additionally,  if  you  have
used your IOTA password on other websites, you should change  the  passwords
on those other sites also. If you have any further  questions  or  concerns,
please contact iota.online[@]rsgb.org.uk. [TNX G3KMA]

S79C ---> In a little over six weeks from now, the S79C team will be on  air
from Coetivy Island (AF-119, new one for IOTA) [425DXN 1270]. "Planning  and
logistics are now complete", and the team's aim is "to work all  corners  of
the globe using a combination of verticals  and  hexbeams  placed  near  the
waters edge". The timeframe (16-23 November) has been  chosen  "to  maximise
propagation paths to all geographical areas". Even though  "all  groups  and
organisations contacted from this area have refused our  funding  requests",
S79C will focus on working West Coast North America during peak  propagation
times, as they realize that "even regular S7 is still much needed"  in  this
area. Donations are still gratefully accepted, and advance  donors  will  be
rewarded with a  free  QSL.  See  http://af119new.com  for  information  and
follow the team on Twitter (@af119). [TNX EI9FBB]
